What Is Happening To Me?

These are the most common questions I get asked in e-mails.  So far since we started the House website I have gotten an average of at least one e-mail a day from people asking me whether they are Awakening, describing a couple random symptoms and believing they are becoming vampires … Continue reading

Vampires vs. Werewolves (Fact & Fiction)

With the advent of such movies as Underworld & Underworld: Evolution, the people outside of our community again seem to think that we must obviously be fighting some unending war against the werewolves.

Ways to Help

We are all a part of the vampyre community because it is where we find like minded people, support, companionship, hope, and for some of us, escape from the mundane world we occupy. The time I spend with those whose experiences mirror mine is invaluable. We are able to talk … Continue reading
