Anne Rice is easily one of the best writers of our time. She has the incredible ability to create whole new worlds where supernatural beings exist and seem all too real. Lestat of the famed vampire chronicles is a good example of this. As you read about him, you can’t help but sympathize with him and later wonder why you are feeling that way about a vampire. She puts so much detail into her stories and characters that you feel you know them as well.
This video gives a very good glimpse of what Anne Rice is really like. She is very dignified, but also down to earth and quite humorous. Her responses are thoughtful and honest. It is easy to see that she loves what she does. At one point she is referred to as “the queen of Facebook” and she seems to enjoy that title. She puts a lot of time and energy into her page and genuinely seems to like the “people of the page”. She discusses things with the people of the page that she does not feel she could discuss with her family because she would drive them crazy. One of the people of the page stated that he loves the fact that he does not have to worry about being politically correct. Everyone is encouraged to speak freely whether they agree or disagree with the topic, and yes, Anne is usually in on the conversation.
