Starring Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin, and Alexander Skarsgård, True Blood will air its fifth season in the summer of 2012. Sookie’s adventures as a telepathic waitress in southern Louisiana (and her dealings with vampires, werewolves and other creatures of the night) has found international acclaim. Harris is also the author of the Aurora Teagarden books, Shakespeare mysteries, and Grave Sight series. Born and raised in the Mississippi River Delta area, Harris will be on tour for the hard cover release of Deadlocked, the twelfth book in her Sookie Stackhouse series. Harris has garnered an Anthony Award for Dead Until Dark, the first book in The Sookie Stackhouse series, and is a member of the Mystery Writers of America and the American Crime Writers League.
