Guest Post by Dan O’Brien

My novel, Bitten, has recently been getting some traction, even earning a top 100 spot on Conversations Book Club. Its sequel, Drained, is in the works and I have been doing the rounds, letting people get to know the new heroine in horror fiction, Lauren Westlake. Here is an exclusive look at more than half of the novel for your perusal.

I will admit it: I was a huge Fringe fan. When I first started writing Bitten, the template for Lauren Westlake was inspired greatly by Anna Torv, best known for playing Oliva Dunham. As I was reading the funny pages, I saw that Torv and Jackson were in no hurry to jump on-board a new project. So this is what I suggest: Anna Torv as the title character in a movie version of Bitten or a series that follows the adventures of Lauren Westlake called Westlake.

Who should play Dominic? Montgomery? Matthews?
