Arkansas Times pick up onm the New York Time interview with Charlaine Harris

True Blood' author featured

Charlaine Harris, the Magnolia author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels on which HBO's "True Blood," is based is the featured profile in this week's NY Times magazine. Some good stuff there. Example:

As a married woman with three children who lives in small-town Arkansas, how did you get so interested in bisexual vampires?
Honestly, I don’t know. Gay rights is just one of the social issues I’m interested in. I think that people might be less tense about it if we would all accept the fact that not everyone is wired the same way. I have a lot of friends who are gay, so it’s kind of a natural thought progression.

There are that many gays in rural Arkansas?
You would be surprised.
