Aw, Sookie, Sookie Now: An Interview with Charlaine Harris

Charlaine Harris is a happy woman. She has every reason to be with the popularity of her Sookie Stackhouse adventure novels being boosted by True Blood, the successful HBO television series based on her characters. Chatting with Art Attack in anticipation of her upcoming reading and Author Luncheon event with Murder by the Book, Harris is bubbly and vivacious. "I kid you not," she laughs, "I am as happy as I can be!"
While many authors complain about television and film treatments of their books (who can forget Anne Rice famously bashing Tom Cruise when he was cast in An Interview with a Vampire). Harris, however, has wholeheartedly embraced the show. "I'd be a fool to be anything but delighted," she says, her signature southern drawl stretching out the words. "Not only have I enjoyed the process and learned a lot but my sales have escalated. Even if it wasn't a great show, I'd be happy about it, but it is a great show so I can be proud of it."
