I was looking for Auntie Heather Brewer. Who is Uncle Zac Brewer?

They are one in the same. Zac (aka Z) is transgender and no longer using the name Heather. For more on what it is to be transgender, please GO HERE.

What’s a “Minion”? Can I become one?

You’re already a Minion! If you’ve ever felt like maybe you didn’t fit in somewhere, you fit in with the Minion Horde. Just trust me on this.

Generally, a Minion is someone who’s even mildly interested in my books. But I’ve found that it means so much more now. We have two goals in the Minion Horde: 1. Stomp out bullying. and 2. World domination.

Where/when can I meet you?

Any public appearances scheduled are immediately posted on the Appearances page. Check it often!

Can you come to Indiana/Idaho/Mississippi/Cancun/Mars/Insert-Place-Here?

I would love to! But no. Well…maybe. Generally, my publishers determines where I travel, Minions. So it’s not up to me to pick and choose stops on my tours. Sorry! I wish I could visit you all!

Can you help me with my author biography homework?/Tell me more about you!

I receive many emails inquiring about this, so let’s see if I can give you the basics. I was born on September 21, 1973 in Lapeer, Michigan. I grew up in a small town called Columbiaville, Michigan, but have lived in several places in that state, as well as in Colorado, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Utah. I currently reside in Saint Louis, Missouri with my husband, two children, and three of the most gorgeous kittehs that you have ever seen (Amenti, Fang and Smudge). My hobbies consist largely of reading, collecting antique medical instruments, gardening, visiting cemeteries, and attending renaissance faires. My favorite color is black. And I am the proud owner of an actual coffin couch (thanks to the genius of www.coffincouches.com). Anything else you absolutely need to know about me, you can feel free to ask via Twitter or Facebook.

Are you going to write more Vlad books?/Will you write anything after you finish the Vlad series?

The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series is now complete with the release of the fifth and final Vlad book, TWELFTH GRADE KILLS. However, a spin-off series has begun in the first book of The Slayer Chronicles, FIRST KILL. If you love CoVT, you should definitely pick up TSK – even if you’re still holding a grudge against Joss. Trust me.

And I will always write more books for you to fall in love with. No worries, my Minions – I have no plans to stop writing any time soon. I will write until my fingers fall off…and then I will use my tongue.

Will there be a Vlad movie?/Can I be in the Vlad movie?

Currently, there is no Vlad movie in the works, but one can always hope. If one day there is one, I’ll try to let you know so you can try out for a part (if I’m given that info in time).

Will you sign my book if I mail it to you?

I used to do this, but it quickly became overwhelming, so no. I cannot sign and ship back any books/items sent to me. Sorry! If you’d like a signed book, please contact:

Left Bank Books
399 N. Euclid Ave.
Saint Louis, MO 63108


Main Street Books

Why haven’t you emailed me back?

There was a time when I prided myself on the fact that I would answer every email I’d receive. Sadly, there are just too many now, so those that can be answered by the FAQ or don’t require an answer are read, but not replied to. I need time to devote to my writing, after all. But I do appreciate each and every email I receive! If you want to interact with me, please like my Facebook page, follow me on Twitter, and/or stalk my YouTube Channel.

How do I become an author?

First step: you write. Sounds simple, right? But the most difficult aspect of becoming a published writer is often reaching “the end”. To do so, set yourself a daily writing goal, and stick with it. Once you’ve hit “the end” and polished your work until your eyes are bleeding, you read this blog entry.
