Anne Rice

Rice in 2006 Anne Rice (born '''Howard Allen Frances O'Brien''', October 4, 1941) is an American author of gothic fiction, Christian literature, and erotic literature. She is perhaps best known for her series of novels, ''The Vampire Chronicles'', revolving around the central character of Lestat. Books from ''The Vampire Chronicles'' were the subject of two film adaptations, ''Interview with the Vampire'' in 1994, and ''Queen of the Damned'' in 2002.

Born in New Orleans, Rice spent much of her early life there before moving to Texas, and later to San Francisco. She was raised in an observant Catholic family, but became an agnostic as a young adult. She began her professional writing career with the publication of ''Interview with the Vampire'' in 1976, while living in California, and began writing sequels to the novel in the 1980s. In the mid-2000s, following a publicized return to Catholicism, Rice published the novels ''Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt'' and ''Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana'', fictionalized accounts of certain incidents in the life of Jesus. Several years later she distanced herself from organized Christianity, citing disagreement with the Church's stances on social issues but pledging that faith in God remained "central to [her] life." However, she now considers herself a secular humanist.

Rice's books have sold nearly 100 million copies, placing her among the most popular authors in recent American history. While reaction to her early works was initially mixed, she became more popular with critics and readers in the 1980s. Her writing style and the literary content of her works have been analyzed by literary commentators. She was married to poet and painter Stan Rice for 41 years, from 1961 until his death from brain cancer in 2002 at age 60. She and Stan had two children, Michele, who died of leukemia at age five, and Christopher, who is also an author.

In addition to her vampire novels, Rice has authored books such as ''The Feast of All Saints'' (adapted for television in 2001) and ''Servant of the Bones'', which formed the basis of a 2011 comic book miniseries. Several books from ''The Vampire Chronicles'' have been adapted as comics and manga by various publishers. Rice has also authored erotic fiction under the pen names Anne Rampling and A. N. Roquelaure, including ''Exit to Eden'', which was later adapted into a 1994 film. Provided by Wikipedia
