About this author


Born Howard Allen O'Brien on October 4, 1941, Anne Rice is a best-selling author of gothic and religious-themed books. Her books have sold nearly 100 million copies, making her one of the most widely read authors in modern history. She obtained a B.A. in Political Science and M.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University.

Interview with the Vampire, later made into a movie of the same name starring Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and was Kirsten Dunst's first movie, was her first novel published in 1976. It is the first in her popular Vampire Chronicles series, which includes 1985's The Vampire Lestat and 1988's The Queen of the Damned (which would serve as the film sequel to Interview with the Vampire starring Aaliyah, shortly before her untimely death).

Completely turning herself around, in a 2004 Newsweek article, Rice stated that she "would only be writing for the Lord". She is working on a trilogy that will chronicle the life of Christ. The first is titled, Christ Our Lord: Out of Egypt, followed by The Road to Cana published March 2008.

In September of 2004, Rice responded to negative reviews of her book, The Blood Canticle on Amazon.com by writing an article. Some had called her writing lazy and shoddy, you can read her reply on her website.

She currently lives in California with her son Christopher a columnist and novelist.
