Author Biography

Award-winning author (First in Category, 2018 CIBA Paranormal/Supernatural Awards) Franklin Posner lives in Portland, Oregon. He is not, nor has he ever been, a vampire, suburban or otherwise. Suburban Vampire is his first book.

That’s the official story, but it isn’t the whole story. Franklin (“Dave” to his friends) has been interested in writing since he was in grade school. However, apart from a few articles published in some obscure corners of the internet, he never seriously pursued writing as a vocation, despite friends and family telling him that he should probably consider it.

And now, many years later, after a few attempts, he has finally achieved his dream. Whether it was maturity, or experience, or a midlife crisis, he’s not sure. All he knows is that Franklin Posner is an author, and he’s here to stay.

Franklin’s Suburban Vampire novels are urban/contemporary fantasy/paranormal thrillers with action, suspense, romance, and all the blood and mayhem associated with vampires, served alongside a healthy dose of humor, both light and dark, sarcastic and subtle. If you’re a fan of Charlaine Harris, Anne Rice, Larry Correia, or Jim Butcher, or if you just like a fun read, check them out!

Reviewed by Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite

Suburban Vampire Ragnarok by Franklin Posner is a great urban fantasy featuring supernatural creatures and a phenomenal conflict. Scott Campbell is just an ordinary office worker, and that is what most people think. But he is one of the most powerful vampires, perhaps the most powerful there is. While there are problems with the vampire organization, Scott has his own problems, including his attraction to the choir girl, his recent divorce, and a detective who will stop at nothing to ensure she gets Scott. But things escalate when a precious, mysterious box is stolen from him. The quest to relocate the box brings him face to face with supernatural beings with incredible powers and abilities. He will face werewolves, Sasquatches, Black-eyed Kids, Skin-Walkers, an undead Nazi, and a Werewolf God. Does he have what it takes to reclaim something he once thought belonged to him, and how much time is left before he can unravel the mystery of the box?

This is a gorgeous treat for fans of urban fantasy and a story that is both atmospheric and well-paced, with a strong level of conflict. I enjoyed Franklin Posner’s characters, especially the vampire Scott. The internal conflict lived by this character gets the reader's emotions rattled. It begins with a point of suspense and raises questions that compel readers to turn the pages and this suspense fills every page of the story. The character buildup is so well done you’ll have to peel off layers from characters to understand their core. The only thing that I found distracting is that the author filled the book with many supernatural characters, but this doesn’t affect the focused writing and exciting setting. The intricacies in the plot lines are complex and the characters are real. Suburban Vampire Ragnarok contains elements of mystery and thriller, a perfect dose of fantasy entertainment.
