Bio: Hi, my name is Lazette Gifford, and I'm a writer... Actually, I've lately been referred to as a 'literate vampire' because of my tendency to do most of my writing between sunset and sunrise. I am also an obsessive writer who has not missed a day of creating stories in more than a decade. I average over 1000 words a day--which, in turn has led to thirty electronic publications since my first in July of 1999, including novels, short stories and poetry.
