From Author Website :

BITE MARKS: A Vampire Testament is an urban horror novel set in the downtown art world/club scene of late 80s New York. At heart, it's the story of Steven and Lori, artist and writer, an interracial couple working their way through a bad break up, but bound by a contract to do an illustrated coffee table book on vampires. When they stumble across the real thing their feelings for each other intensify as they're reunited to battle monsters they scarcely believe exist.

They join forces with Perenelle de Marivaux, a five hundred year old French vampire who poses as a trance channeler in the West Village; Rahman-al-Hazra'ad ibn Aziz, her black Moorish ex-lover, the 1000 year old leader of subway-dwelling albino bloodsuckers so old, that even ordinary vampires fear them; Jim, the traumatized teenage brother of the murdered girl; Angel, the Latino leader of a subway vigilante group called the KnightHawks, and his movie star mistress.

Hidden in the East Village, guarded by a nest of vampires recruited from an HIV infected gang of junkies, the baby unknowingly spreads a fast-acting mutant plague through lower Manhattan. In the middle of the worst blizzard in New York history our heroes plan to slip through army barricades, fight their way through a mob of the infected, find the baby and stop the plague by putting the infant to rest. But fate has other ideas; their nightmare is just beginning...

The story takes us from a Fifth Avenue penthouse to subways inhabited by vampires who prey on late night commuters; from downtown dance clubs, to East Village art galleries. Behind the scares, it's a story of diverse people in circumstances that seem beyond their control, who can only survive by putting aside their differences, to work together. Real events and people are fictionalized, to create a convincing new history that make us see the city differently. No one who reads this novel may ever walk New York's streets, or ride the subway, in comfort again. It will be out in October of 2009 from St. Martin's Press.
