Author Biography

M. A. Anderson is an author with a taste for the macabre and has always had a love of things that go bump in the night. At the age of fourteen she was introduced to Dracula for a book review in her English class. From the moment she turned the first page, she was seduced by Bram Stoker's unorthodox, charismatic character, and has been a fan of the genre ever since. Needless to say, that's the reason why she writes vampire and other supernatural book series.

Dark Legacy was her debut paranormal fantasy novel, which was nominated for the 2012 Aurealis and Ditmar Awards and came finalist in the 2013 AUTHORSdb book cover contest. All the current books in this series are available on Amazon and all leading online bookstores.

She is also an incurable romantic and has published four contemporary romance novels: Driving Me Crazy, Love's Twist of Fate, A Night of Passion, and Christmas, Mistletoe and You, and a paranormal romance series, Moon Grove Paranormal Romance Thrillers, under the pen name Maggie Anderson.

​Her future goals are simple: to continue doing what she loves - entertain readers.

Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers' Favorite

In LA there is always crime and homicides, but the latest string has Detective Reece Daniels mystified. They are drained of blood, but none have wounds. One would-be victim didn't get fully drained and was found alive and rushed to the ER, where Doctor Andre Delacroix manages to save his life. When Reece calls his best friend Andre to ask a question about blood, Andre informs him about his patient. The thing that scares Andre is that this looks like a vampire to him, and he's not sure Reece will believe him. Dark Legacy is a tale of cops chasing after a killer always one step ahead of them, a doctor who just happens to be a vampire, but not a killing one, teaming together with an unconventional priest and, in the end, the chief to fight something they have no clue how to deal with. Author M.A. Anderson gives readers a tale that you cannot put down. There are so many twists and turns, it becomes so complex as more and more people, who you originally think are just bit characters in the book, become more and more involved in the story. You never know who will become important.

While there may be any number of vampire novels on the shelf, this one is so different and wild. It's not your typical boy-girl romance/ human-vampire romance. This is crime, serial killer, detective novel mixed with a vampire and priest vampire hunter, a nightclub, and even a shifter thrown in for good measure. Author M.A. Anderson has really taken a great mystery novel and interwoven a vampire theme into it, and, believe me, it will keep you guessing until the very last page. To be honest, I think this is the first time I have read a crime novel that included vampires, and I really liked it. I hope to see more of this type now that the barrier has been broken. Definitely an adult book, although the sex scenes are only alluded to, and the violence is described tastefully. Young adults and teens would be a parent call. But this is definitely one you don't want to pass on!
