Since the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold Conference is coming up this weekend, September 11-13, it’s fitting that this week’s featured author would be RMFW’s recently announced Writer of the Year, Mario Acevedo. RMFW Writer of the Year is a big deal in these parts, pardner.
Mario’s mystery series is about Felix Gomex, a man who went to Iraq as a soldier and returned a vampire. Isn’t it to be expected that someone with that kind of background would then become a private detective? In the first novel, The Nymphos of Rocky Flats, Felix investigates an outbreak of nymphomania at the Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons plant.
In X-Rated Blood Suckers, the vampire detective looks for the killer of a porn star. Felix protects earth women from alien gangsters in The Undead Kama Sutra. In book four of the series, Jailbait Zombie, Felix is sent to get rid of a nest of zombies found in (oh, goodness) Denver.
You probably already suspect that Mr. Acevedo has a sense of humor.
Mario also shares a blog with another author and expert on the vampire life, Jeanne Stein. Visit The Biting Edge to see what these two authors are up to, and find out more about Mario Acevedo and his books (including excerpts and reviews) at his website.
