Karen Greco has spent close to twenty years in New York City, working in publicity and marketing for the entertainment industry. A life-long obsession with exorcists and Dracula drew her to urban fantasy, where she can decapitate characters with impunity. HELL’S BELLE is her first novel.
That’s the stodgy official bio. So here’s the unofficial… I grew up in Rhode Island, home of the best pizza in the nation, sorry New York (and Chicago). I now live just outside of NYC in Dirty JerZ. I’ve worked with the band Satanicide. I love animals and have rescued quite a few. I am addicted to Game of Thrones and Walking Dead, like just about everyone else. I wanted to be a playwright, then I started doing theater PR and chickened out. When I first moved to NY, I sent Tom Fontana a fan letter when Oz was the shit on HBO. His assistant followed up and asked me to send some of my plays for writer’s assistant consideration. I was so nervous that my completed plays weren’t good enough that I wrote a horrible one-act that I don’t remember anything about except that it featured really violent spirits. Oz never called back. Also, I am a Libra.
After surviving a vampire assassin (not to mention an awkward affair with a hot FBI agent that ended worse than she could have imagined), witch/vampire hybrid Nina Martinez is reunited with the full Blood Ops team in Providence, Rhode Island. Her Aunt Babe is tutoring her in all things witchcraft, and her vampire partner Frankie is enjoying the benefits of daywalking, courtesy of a demon spell.
When a segment of the Rhode Island vampire population is marked for death by a tainted blood supply, Nina and her team race to find Patient Zero before the local vampire population is wiped out. But when a demon infestation threatens to take control of the city, Nina must join forces with newly elected mayor—and closet demon— Ami Bertrand before the city falls into ruin.
Filled with fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat action, Nina and her group of supernatural misfits battle a surprising new enemy that threatens their very existence.
