My Reading Addiction

I have a stockpile of half complete novels and some barely started books that I hope to return to some day.  Among them is a novel set in Ireland and Boston following a teenage vampire hunter, Sarah Knight.  This was the first novel I ever wrote and actually completed.  I started it the summer after I finished secondary school (high school), but re-wrote it several times over the years.  I also have the outline of the follow up novel to it jotted down somewhere 
Another story I began back in school calls to me at times.  Set in a time of Celtic myths and legends, it follows the story of a daughter of a Chieftain who has no idea of her ties to the darker fairy world.  It is tentatively titled Ripples.  I also have a hand-written novel about a group of teenagers with various psychic abilities.  I don't think this will ever see the light of day.
When I was a teenager, my friend Danielle and I would write Buffy fan fiction. We had a laugh writing new episodes featuring Xander, Willow, Angel and co. These are all hand-written, so who knows if I'll ever knuckle down and type these up.  It might be fun just to see how bad, or possibly good my writing was ten to fifteen years ago.
I also created a short science-fiction series called Anomaly.  In my dreams, I hoped it would become a TV series (feel free to laugh here).  My school pals diligently read each ‘episode’ for me and gave me lots of feedback.  God bless those girls for putting up with me.  Anomaly focused on a high school in Massachusetts.  Due to an explosion in a genetics lab many years previously, the town's pregnant women were infected with a virus and their children were genetically stronger humans than normal.  

I wrote this a year or two before Dark Angel came out and I remember being so annoyed that someone beat me to the punch. J  Nicky was the only 'normal' human at the school, and the series dealt with bullying and prejudice.  I must dig it out from whatever box the scripts are hiding in one of these days, and have a read.

Author Bio:

Emma Meade lives in rainy Ireland. She loves vampires, slayers, witches, ghosts, aliens & shadow men (or at least the youngest of the Shadow Men), and regular people who live extraordinary lives (think Slayerettes and you’re on the right track).

Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home, and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on.

Writing supernatural short stories and watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.
