Jolie’s Paranormal Spotlight: Rosemary Johns

Today, we’re welcoming a “friend of the blog” (I always wanted to say that), Rosemary Johns. It’s not all about the scifi here, sometimes we take a walk on the wild side and I host a little paranormal fairytale or two, and that day is today.

Death Drives Desire When Predator Becomes the Prey

Rosemary A Johns: Rebel Vampires Series

Firstly, thanks for having me on Jan!

I’ve always loved paranormal romance; I write what I love to read. You have to be passionate about the characters you bring to life.

And the extra magic ingredient..? The anti-hero. I love dark complex anti-heroes, struggling on thrilling redemptive journeys against overwhelming odds.

Rebel Vampires is an award-winning series: a gripping psychological look into a secret paranormal world, which exists hidden in the shadows of our own.

How free are any of us? What would you truly do to save your love, family and home?

On June 13th Blood Renegades – the highly anticipated third book in the Rebel Vampires trilogy – is released.

Blood Dragons is where the escape into Blood Life began. Rebel Vampires is set in the supernatural world of Blood Life, in a hidden London where vampires are both predator and prey. I may love vampires. But I wanted to write a vampire book for adults. Where they weren’t simply the hunters but also the hunted. And death drives desire.

It’s a secret world of vampires, rebels and romance. Light is caught between his century old love for a savage Elizabethan Blood Lifer and his forbidden human lover.

Blood Dragons is out now here:

In the latest book Blood Shackles Light has been abducted, defanged and enslaved by a secret human Blood Club. This time it’s the vampires who are the slaves…


The inspiration for the series was sparked by my autistic son, who has a photographic memory. Light – the Blood Lifer in the trilogy – has one too. I wondered what it would be like to live through the centuries witnessing glorious wonders and devastating horrors. And remembering everything with the clarity of a photograph.

Because of his extraordinary memory, in Blood Renegades Light is the witness in an Inquiry that could lead to his death in just 14 days… Light lives for his vampire family. Now he may die for it.

Betrayal. Death. Hope. Isn’t that how all truly great stories start?’
