American novelist Charlaine Harris is best known for her Sookie Stackhouse novels, which are also known as The Southern Vampire Mysteries. The series has been adapted to the extremely popular HBO television series True Blood. The supernatural-themed vampire series is just one of Harris’ mystery novel series.

In addition to the True Blood novels, the New York Times Bestselling author has also written such series as the Aurora Teagarden series, the Lily Bard series and the Harper Connelly series. She has a couple of standalone novels to her credit as well. A typical locale to Harris’ novels is the South, which shouldn’t be surprising as she was born in Mississippi and now lives in Arkansas.
