Charlaine Harris Talks Sookie & True Blood

Charlaine Harris talks Sookie & True Blood

Sookie and Eric’s maker  Charlaine Harris is of course busy promoting their latest adventure “Deadlocked” across the US right now, and today KUT News have released a little interview with the author. Charlaine tells us why she thinks Sookie Stackhouse is such a popular heroine:

 I can only guess, really. Who knows why lightning strikes? But I think, and I hope, it’s partly because the books are well written –  I like to tell myself that. But also I think it’s because Sookie has real-life problems. She’s got the problems that all my readers have. She’s got to pay her bills, she needs new curtains in her living room, she has to pay her insurance, you know – all those things that we all have to do, yet she has this other life, that is so much more colorful than the lives most of us lead.

And also answers (another) question about True Blood and how it has become a seperate experience and we should not think of it as being like the books any longer:

It’s an interesting experience – I can certainly tell you that –  and one I never expected to have. It’s added a whole new dimension to my life and the things I know about now. I can say I’ve had a lot of experiences I sure would never have had otherwise. It’s exciting watching what is, kind of, related to my work on screen. But of course, the show and the books are kind of separating in a widening distance, so I really am almost viewing the show now as a completely separate experience from the books. I knew it would happen; [“True Blood” series producer Alan Ball]’s got his own talented writers, and they are doing what they see as exciting and photogenic, which is not a concern I had, and going their own way with the characters that I created. And you have to really think of it really as a completely separate experience, and not expect it to be like the books any longer.

Here at Eric & Sookie Lovers, although we can see that the journey is now very different for our favorite couple in the TV show, we hope and believe that the destination will still be the same!

Any thoughts on Charlaine’s latest words of wisdom?
