I write about a lot of things including my friends, family and others I run across from time to time. If they make a good story I’ll write about it.
Who are all of those people/vampires/werewolves/ghosts I write about? And yes, I consider Vampires as people. If you walk on two legs and aren’t a bird you’re “people.” Unless you’re a troll or goblin but that is an entirely different post.
It is hard to keep track. Not everyone is listed, but almost everyone. Just use this as a quick guide. Feel free to bookmark it.
Each name has a link to one of the many articles featuring that person/being.
Vampires (includes parents, kids and other normal Vampires just like you)
Juliette: That would be me. I write the blog.
Teddy: My husband. He is also my brother Max’s best friend.
Garrett: My 21 year old son.
Clara: My 18 year old daughter.
Max (Maxwell): My eldest brother. Max is the kind of hot and sexy brooding Vampire one finds on the covers of Paranormal Romance Novels. That isn’t how I see him, but it is how others see him. Maxwell hunts Vampire Hunters, Rogue Vampires and other unwanted creatures and keeps us all safe. He is also kind of an asshole.
Aaron: The second of my four older brothers. He is an attorney and most conservative of my siblings.
Verity: Aaron’s wife. She is also one of my best buddies. She looks like Botticelli’s Venus. I kid you not.
Laurel: Aaron’s daughter. Just graduated from Stanford.
Logan: Aaron’s son. Just graduated from UCLA Law School
Andy (Andrew): The third of my brothers. Andy is the most romantic and most sensitive of the brood. He is a singer, mainly opera. He keeps a baby unicorn as a pet, and a cat or two. Pixies, and assorted other weird things live in his house.
Val (Valentine): Sometimes Val is almost like my twin. He is calm and happy and always there for me.
Tellias and Eleora: The Elders. They’re ancient Vampires, over 2,000 years old. They look like they’re 19 or 20 years old, but they’re more like senior citizens. Seriously, they ARE senior citizens.
Lola: My great great great great grandmama. She put the Vamp in Vampire.
Samantha and Jeremy: Our parents.
Nathaniel Chase: A friend of our parents and along with our parents, leaders in the Modern Vampire movement.
Thomas Kent: A mysterious and somewhat famous Vampire. He is well known under a different name which I won’t disclose.
Cody: A fairly “new” Vampire from the Silicon Valley. He and Lola are involved off and on. Strange but true.
Pierce: A friend from our childhood who works with Max. A tall cool drink of Vampire water.
Jayne: A friend and coworker of Max.
Elizabeth: Works with Max
Elizabeth: An attorney like Aaron. She is quiet and serious and has found herself more involved with a local Vampire Hunter than she wants to be.
Mehitabel: A woman who works with Max. He says she is a friend with benefits but she is more. She is also of an ancient band of Vampires who see the world slightly different than we do, but are still part of the Modern Vampire Culture.
Innocenzio D’Antonio: An opera singer and friend of the family.
Matthew: Former Shadow Creeper. An old fashioned Vampire who is trying to navigate the modern world for his teenage son Josh.
James: A total douche of a Vampire. He is my brother Andy’s best friend.
Foxy Mendoza: An old friend who dresses sharp and talks fast.
Amelia: My dear Vampire friend who now lives in Las Vegas.
Randy: My son Garrett’s best friend and now college roommate. He is that tall blonde California kid that never comes across as a Vampire. He likes plaid pants and funky vintage clothes.
Chloe, Zoe, Ione: Friends of Garrett and Randy.
Willow: Recently became a Vampire. A bit shy but coming out of her shell.
Jackie Rafferty: Owns a garage that stays open all night. Has a sweet spot for Willow.
Jason: A mysterious Vampire from the islands.
Pleasant Van Dusen: An old beau of mine. The guy in the “Seriously mom” meme.
Vlad: Former King of Vampires. Author of Vampire Diary. After being locked in a crypt for 300 years he is trying to navigate the modern world.
Gillian: Vlad’s Vampire Lover
Randolpho: Vlad’s best buddy for hundreds of years.
Baba: Vlad’s Grandma
Adam: A Werewolf and one of the best professional photographers I’ve ever met. He is the best I’ve ever worked with.
Brandy: Adam’s girlfriend.
Michael and Melissa: Young professionals who had the misfortune of becoming Zombies.
Nigel: The Ghost. He drives me crazy. He is rude and obnoxious and never stops talking. Nigel died at the age of 27 in 1986. He is also my friend, sort of.
Mary: Nigel’s girlfriend. She is exceptionally sweet. She was murdered around 1600.
Kelly: My friend and neighbor.
Austin: A Vampire Hunter. He also restores old buildings and sometimes works with my brother Aaron. He is also in love with Elizabeth (a Vampire)
Shawna: A college professor my brother Andy is in love with, on and off and on and off and maybe on again…
John: John owns the farm next to the farm owned by the Elders Tellias and Eleora. Tellias always thought John was in love with Eleora. I told Tellias that everyone who meets sweet Eleora falls in love with her. John’s family has been friends with mine since the California Gold Rush.
Jack: My special friend and regular lunch date. He is usually on my Friday lunch menu.
LeRoy and Jasmine: Hipster Vegans
Lilly: A woman Val sees every once in a while.
Johnson and Booth: Men in Black Suits
Captain Sandy: An airship captain.
Bart: Father and business owner. Takes no shit from bullies.

Merlin: Yes THAT Merlin. A time traveler. He is one of many time travelers who show up here from time to time.
Ramon and Josh: Friends of Val.
Officers Garcia and Murphy: County Sheriff Officers: Eleora and Tellias call them when they want take-out delivered to their door.
WPaD – Writers, Poets and Deviants: A group of amazing writers I’m honored to work with. I’m not sure if any of them are Vampires or not. They are exceptional.
Teachers: This is a parenting blog so I must mention teachers. Great and not so great. Mostly great.
Marla Todd: A writer and artist and editor when she feels like it, which is rarely.
There are also assorted dogs and cats. Do a search on dogs or cats. I have a lot of posts about them.
Selkies: They take both human and seal form. We run into them from time to time.
Warlocks and Witches: I’m not overly fond of them but some of my kin are friends with them.
Evil Squirrel: I’ve written several blog posts for the Evil Squirrel’s Nest Contest of Whatever. If you don’t follow ES you should.
There are also posts about goblins, demons, aliens, time travelers and other assorted nasty creatures I really don’t like spending much time with except to complain about them. Oh right, and story problems (or why your kid is failing in math.
I know I left somebody out but…we all have a lot of people in our lives. I use the term “people” rather loosely.
So have fun. Check the side bars. Read all 1,700 + posts.
