Christine Feehan (b. Christine King in California) is an American romance-paranormal writer. She has published more than 40 novels, including five series, and numerous novellas since 1999.[1]

Biography[edit]

Christine King was born in California. She grew up with three brothers and ten sisters. She spent a lot of time getting in trouble at school for writing instead of doing the things she was supposed to do. Later she forced her ten sisters to read every word.

She is married to Richard Feehan, and together they have 11 children (each had children from previous marriages). Today, her daughters read and help her edit her manuscripts.

Feehan has been published in multiple languages. In October 2007 her first manga comic, Dark Hunger, was released. This was the first manga comic released by Berkley Publishing, and it reached #11 on Publishers Weekly's bestsellers list.[2]

Bibliography[edit]

The Carpathian Novels[edit]

This series tells the stories of the Carpathians, an ancient race with near-immortal lifespans that feeds on human blood. However, the Carpathians are nearing extinction due to a scarcity of females to mate with. With their lifemates, male Carpathians live emotion-filled colorful lives. Without them, the males fight the madness that causes them to choose between suicide or the thrill of killing humans by draining their blood, becoming soulless vampires in the process. Learning that special human women can possibly become lifemates, the Carpathians realize there may be hope of saving their species from extinction.[3][4]
