Signing Sunday for local vampire book author at The Book Nook

I love these local writers stories, he works at the Mestle plant might be good!

Dunkirk native William (Billy) Wdowiasz will be signing copies of his novel, "The Forbidden Vampire: The Inception," at The Book Nook on Sunday from 3 to 4 p.m. Wdowiasz, who currently works as a packing line operator in the Nestle Purina plant in Dunkirk, has been writing for pleasure since grade school. The experience of writing means a lot to him, so much so that he hand-writes his stories rather than typing them into a word processor.
"The Forbidden Vampire: The Inception" is the first in what Wdowiasz hopes will be a saga of four to six novels. From the conception phase to the actual writing, Wdowiasz refined his ideas for almost a year. Fascinated by vampires long before Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight," Wdowiasz cites "Nosferatu," Bram Stoker, Bela Lugosi, Anne Rice and, most of all, Christopher Lee (as Dracula) as forming his own version of what a vampire should be. Though these earlier portrayals created his initial sense of vampires, the "Twilight" Saga, "Underworld" Saga, and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" all contributed to his ever-widening interest in vampires. Wdowiasz boasts that he would read (and enjoy) a story about the Count Chocula cereal mascot if only someone would write it!
