  • Baxter said of the story that:

    'I know for me the concept immediately gave me inspiration in two main areas:

    1. Australia is a wide open, sun-drenched land; and 2. Vampires are supposed to be nasty, feral creatures that feed on people, not lovely sparkly sex symbols.

    So that's the angle my story takes.'
