SFF Author: E.K. Johnston

Emily Kate Johnston is a forensic archaeologist by training, a bookseller by trade, and a grammarian by nature.

Within the first two paragraphs “A Kiss With Teeth” has outlined an unusual premise: a vampire masquerades as human in order to be an ordinary husband and father. He isn’t blending in to feast on blood or evade capture, but simply to give his wife and especially his son a fighting chance at normalcy.
