This is Me: Amy Mah Vampire
Up all night?
Been chowing down on rare steaks?
Trying to land a job at your local blood bank?
If you answered yes to any of these queries, then you might possibly be a vampire. Or, at least, a vannabe.
For starters, you're in the right place. The City of
is Vampireville to slightly more than 50
vampires, claims the VPR, or Angels , in Vampire Research Center , another favorite haunt. New York
"Vampires love to come and go as they please, and they especially love a big city," says Joel Martin, VPR's director. "Big cities have a very fluid population."
But seriously, folks, the file cabinets in Martin's office are crammed with thousands of dossiers from people from across the world who believe they are vampires.
Tooth be told (sorry), he says the VPR--which started doing this work in 1971--is up to its neck (oops) in verifying the very existence of modern-day vampires. So far, the center claims there are about 1,000 vampires--based on a confidential vampire census--with about 400 of them scattered about
, Canada and the Mexico (where United States , San Francisco and Chicago , are other fave stays). Washington, D.C.
"These people have very good jobs, some in government. They're well educated. One of them is from your area--he used to work in network television--that is, until he died from drinking contaminated blood."
Martin explains that vampires drink human blood "because they have the need to drink it. It's called hemotomania, a craving for blood. We, at the VPR, believe that this craving is not psychological; it's physiological."
It's also one of the many ways to tell whether you're a vampire. Here are 10 more from a VPR questionnaire:
* Are you a nocturnal person and dislike daylight?
* Are you a loner and tend to be secretive?
* Do you naturally look younger than you are?
* Are you supermodel thin and pale?
* Do you have elongated canine teeth?
* Do you have the need to drink blood--anywhere from two drops to a couple of ounces daily (which usually comes from a cooperative giver)?
* Do you have legal access to blood via a job at a hospital or a blood bank?
* Do you have a strong interest in vampirology?
* Do you have a voracious appetite for rare meat and an aversion to garlic?
* Do you almost always dress in black?
NOW For my books
I do not know why but no one has noticed in my books vampires are Asian Vampires ...
A self help guide by Amy Mah (Vampire) for teenage vampire girls, the guide is fully illustrated by manga Artist Heby and is written in an easy to follow A - Z format explaining everything a teenage vampire girl would need to know about living life as a modern Vampire. What is fashionable to wear when eating out? Fang maintenance & how to keep your claws sharp. Should you let a boy bite you on the first date? Easy to understand clear advice is given to every day problems Example: When you get an urge to bite: We all get those normal urges to bite things, and I must point out it is very normal, Claws are all well and good in a fight but a bite gives the extra advantage of getting a refreshing drink at the same time. Lots of girls worry about showing their Fangs in public believing that to show your fangs is rude, but don't be shy they can be a girls greatest asset (ok second greatest asset) if a boy is being rude to you, don't just snarl at him, just bite him! You are a vampire why do you think you have sharp teeth if not for sinking them into a boy that is being rude to you.
Today's world is difficult for everyone, especially teenagers. They face the stresses of school, deciding whom to date, and the biggie of sex, just to name a few. Imagine all of those things ten times worse, and you might get an idea of what it's like being a living, breathing teenage vampire. At last, the world can read about the life of a girl with good teeth, her problems with strong sunlight that gave her spots, and the sunblock that made her hair go yucky and produced more spots. Yes, sunlight was dangerous, as she could be the first teenager in history to die from terminal acne! In her everyday life, older vampires expected her to walk about at night in the traditional female uniform, a see-through, 18th-century nightdress, without undies! Well, this female vampire knew why the cold winds blowing along the corridors were called, "male winds," so she wore her see-through nightdress over jeans and a very thick jumper. To be sure that people would still know she was a vampire, the jumper had a very large, pink bat on it. And as to guys, well, it was normal for a girl to dream about guys; she just wished the dreams could have involved chocolates and holding hands, not leaping out at someone, ripping off his shirt, and demanding to know what blood type he was (at least not on the first date).
