Paranormal novelist Charlaine Harris will be closing the coffin on her Southern Vampire series. Harris told PopcornBiz that she intends to end Sookie Stackhouse‘s story on book thirteen.
Harris explained: “I think it’ll be total closure. I don’t go back to things once I’ve finished them. That’s kind of what I do. I don’t want to write Sookie after I get stale. Yeah, I’ll miss them, I’m sure, because I have lived with them for quite a long time – 12 years now. And it did take two years to sell the first book. But I think writers like to do different things. At least this writer does.”
With two more books to go and HBO’s True Blood series, fans don’t have to say goodbye to Sookie just yet.
Harris is currently working on the twelfth book of the series and the Cemetery Girl graphic novel with writer Christopher Golden. Golden has written original novels for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer television franchise and several of his own original titles. Harris has also released a comic book adaptation of the first book in the Harper Connelly series, Grave Sight.
