You think that it's not magic that keeps you alive? Just 'cause you understand the mechanics of how something works, doesn't make it any less of a miracle. Which is just another word for magic. We're all kept alive by magic, Sookie. My magic's just a little different from yours, that's all. -- Charlaine Harris
I started to say that couldn't happen, that the people I knew wouldn't turn on their friends and neighbors because of an accident of birth. But in the end, I didn't say that, because I wondered if it was the truth. -- Charlaine Harris
Their backs were to me, and the vampire hadn't seen me yet I loosened the coiled chain so a good three feet of it swung free. Who to attack first? They were both small and vicious.
I remembered Mack's contemptuous dismissal and the fact that he never left me a tip. Mack first. -- Charlaine Harris
Even at the beginning of fall - which is only a date on the calendar in Texas; -- Charlaine Harris
Oh, you were the dessert. The Rattrays were the meal. -- Charlaine Harris
I settled opposite him in my favorite chair, low enough that my feet can touch the floor, wide enough to curl up inside, with a little table beside it just big enough to hold a book and a coffee cup. -- Charlaine Harris
Would that detective be Arthur Smith? Mother asked. I heard the permafrost under her words. -- Charlaine Harris
There are three motels in Davy if you go north, and at least six over in Marthasville if you go west. If you go to the interstate, there are a skadillion places to stay. -- Charlaine Harris
Coffe is the perfume of morning. -- Charlaine Harris
We had sex in every position i could imagine, and some i couldn't. we had sex in every room in my house, and we had sex outdoors. you told me it was the best you'd ever had. -- Charlaine Harris
God bless the American spectator. -- Charlaine Harris
His eyes were still like caves with ghosts dwelling in their depths. -- Charlaine Harris
Weird doesn't equal morally bankrupt. -- Charlaine Harris
However, Arlene's arrival had kind of wiped out my options. I -- Charlaine Harris
Sometimes you just have to regret things and move on. -- Charlaine Harris
My eyes flew open, and I pushed back against rock-hard shoulders. I let out a little squeak of horror.
"It's me," said a familiar voice.
... "Eric, what are you doing here?"
"Snuggling. -- Charlaine Harris
The security light made me feel safe, though I knew that was an illusion. If there's light, you can just see what's coming for you a little more clearly. -- Charlaine Harris
Sometimes life just hands you more than you take. Then you just accept. -- Charlaine Harris
Finally, a human man saw me as intensely valuable. Just my luck he was happily married and thought I was a freak. -- Charlaine Harris
This letter is written on the skin of one of the water sprites who drowned your parents.'
'Ick!' I cried, and dropped the letter on the kitchen table. -- Charlaine Harris
I thought in over a thousand years I'd seen all there was to see. -- Charlaine Harris
The queen is ... busy," Wybert said. "When she wants you in her room, the light, it will shine." He indicated a round light set in the wall to the right of the door.
So I was stuck her for an indefinite time-until the light, it shone. -- Charlaine Harris
Think if you love someone, you make an effort to suppress habits of yours that displease them, right? But those habits or inclinations are still there. Sam, -- Charlaine Harris
The last thing I wanted to do was to sit in a crowded bar to watch my cousin get naked. -- Charlaine Harris
If I quit having fun, then it's time for me to quit working. -- Charlaine Harris
If I was so malicious or off-color or just plain wrongheaded that I had to constantly censor my conversation with a minister, then I needed the experience anyway. -- Charlaine Harris
Did you ever think that if you told me where Bill's hiding his computer program, I would give you anything you asked for?
- Eric, club dead. -- Charlaine Harris
There is plenty of justice on television, but not so much in the real world. Maybe that's why so many of us like television so much. -- Charlaine Harris
I am self-educated from genre books. -- Charlaine Harris
We might be on the same page, but I wasn't happy about reading it. -- Charlaine Harris
A year ago,' I said, 'you wouldn't have asked this of me.'
'A year ago,' he answered, 'you wouldn't have hesitated to drink.'
I crossed to the desk and tossed it down. -- Charlaine Harris
If this was The Lord of the Rings and I had a smart British voice like Cate Blanchett, I could tell you the background of the events of that fall in a really suspenseful way. And you'd be straining to hear the rest. -- Charlaine Harris
They say there's no harm in daydreaming, but there is. -- Charlaine Harris
you have to play it out sometimes. -- Charlaine Harris
( ... ) that the creature I loved was lying somewhere in a hole underground, to all intents and purposes dead until dark. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric: if Sookie had died, I would let you suffer.
Bill: if Sookie had died, I would already be dead. -- Charlaine Harris
Lily might be icy on the outside, but inside she was Vesuvius. -- Charlaine Harris
But in my book, it was basically bad taste to stare at someone's assets, no matter how much on display they were. -- Charlaine Harris
Once again, I had that feeling of drowning when I hadn't even known I was in the pool -- Charlaine Harris
I thought about making biscuits, but there seemed to be more than enough calories on board. -- Charlaine Harris
Jason's favorite person in the entire universe was Jason Stackhouse. -- Charlaine Harris
I love you," Bill said helplessly, as if he wished those magic words would heal me. But he knew they wouldn't.
"That's what you all keep saying," I answered. "But it doesn't seem to get me any happier. -- Charlaine Harris
How is Eric?'
'Very tightly wound. Plus, a lot of stuff happened that he'll tell you about.'
'Thanks for the warning. I'll go to the house now. You're my favorite breather.'
'Oh. Well ... great.'
She hung up. -- Charlaine Harris
Oklahoma is very beautiful, and Eric loves beauty, but he already has that in you. -- Charlaine Harris
I would've asked him to bring a shovel and come to help me dig a body up. That was what a boyfriend should do, right?
-Sookie Stackhouse -- Charlaine Harris
Woo woo, secret vampire stuff! -- Charlaine Harris
Sweetheart," Bill said formally, "I have always loved you, and I will be proud to die in your service. When I'm gone, say a prayer for me in a real church. -- Charlaine Harris
But I also knew that if he turned away from me at this moment, somehow I would survive that, and I would find a way to flourish like the yard that still bloomed and grew around my family home.
I'm Sookie Stackhouse. I belong here. -- Charlaine Harris
Don't go looking for trouble; it's already looking for you. -- Charlaine Harris
The Sookie Stackhouse novels were selling well before the TV show, but the TV show led to a lot more exposure and readers. And a lot went on to read my other work. It was a wonderful thing for my bank account. -- Charlaine Harris
Vampires should never say Uh-Oh!! -- Charlaine Harris
He picked some unwise words. Saying, "I'll enjoy killing you for my lord", is just not the way to make my acquaintance. -- Charlaine Harris
There was enough tension in the room to send a fleet of the nervous running for their tranquilizers. -- Charlaine Harris
Oh, God, puppy dog eyes. From a six-foot-five ancient Viking vampire. -- Charlaine Harris
Fiction just makes it all more interesting. Truth is so boring. -- Charlaine Harris
Maybe I felt like I'd come so close to forever-death that I'd better step back and take a look at my life. Maybe I didn't like a lot of what I'd done with it so far. -- Charlaine Harris
I didn't see what was in front of me until I thought it might be taken away. - Sam -- Charlaine Harris
I realized that I was really tired of people popping on and off of my property like it was a train station on the supernatural railroad. -- Charlaine Harris
I could add her to the long list of people I didn't understand. -- Charlaine Harris
Can I help you up?"
"No," she said bitterly. "I prefer to drag myself along the hardwood floor."
"Bitch," I said, squatting to help her up. -- Charlaine Harris
That's just not right," Sam muttered. "Claude needs to keep his pants on. -- Charlaine Harris
But there was something in the air, a watchfulness laced with a charge of malice. The eyes observing us were invisible, but were observing us, nonetheless. -- Charlaine Harris
Well, they got married. No one pulled a Jane Eyre ... -- Charlaine Harris
I don't think any woman minds knowing she looks good, as long as the admiration isn't expressed in an offensive way and doesn't come from a disgusting source. -- Charlaine Harris
It's truly amazing what a good screw can do for your outlook, I thought. -- Charlaine Harris
I'm looking forward to coming to SleuthFest I've heard so many good things about it from my writer friends. I'm looking forward to seeing my buddies and talking to readers who want to know about the way I work. -- Charlaine Harris
Do you want a drink?" "You mean synthetic blood," she said after a slight hesitation. "Yes, that would be nice. A sociable gesture." "I'm all about the gestures. Bubba, you, too?" "Yes, ma'am, I reckon so," he said. -- Charlaine Harris
Lies will come back to bite you in the butt -- Charlaine Harris
At the time, I thought if Stan Davis wanted to live on Green Valley Road, or in the Hundred-Acre Wood, that was his right as an American -- Charlaine Harris
He gripped my arms and kissed me for all he was worth, and believe me, that was plenty. -- Charlaine Harris
The full moon symbol on my calendar no longer seemed to be a period marking the end of something, but just another way of counting time. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric was usually pretty Anglo-Saxon about sex. -- Charlaine Harris
I liked long skirts," he said nostalgically. "I liked the underthings women wore. The petticoats. -- Charlaine Harris
Finally, I drew in a long breath. It was noisy and painful and just heaven. -- Charlaine Harris
You won't find a vampire in a Ford Fiesta -- Charlaine Harris
Self-pity is like chocolate; as you get older, you can only afford a little bit. -- Charlaine Harris
People fidget. They are compelled to look engaged in an activity, or purposeful. Vampires can just occupy space without feeling obliged to justify it. -- Charlaine Harris
Here's to books, the cheapest vacation you can buy. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric shone like the moon; he was pale and commanding, and there was a large empty space around him. He was alone. He held out his hand to me, and I took it, to a flare of dismay from the twoeys. -- Charlaine Harris
I wish," I said. "I could save orgasms in a jar for when I need them, because I think I have a few extra. -- Charlaine Harris
It was beautiful Eric, who desired me, who was hungry for me, in a world that often let me know it could do very well without me. -- Charlaine Harris
Earth is the home of the living, not the dead. -- Charlaine Harris
And by golly, love sure was a battlefield. Benatar was right about that. -- Charlaine Harris
But the last few years had taught me that one of my grandmother's favorite sayings was true. An ounce of prevention was worth a pound of cure. -- Charlaine Harris
Your life was not right when you were actually surprised that someone didn't want to kill you. -- Charlaine Harris
I often cried when I got angry; I hated that. Crying just made you look weak, no matter what triggered it. -- Charlaine Harris
Reducing other beings to their component parts. -- Charlaine Harris
Should we do this now?"
Pam gave an almost inaudible snort. She was smiling in the glow of the streetlight, suddenly exhilarated. "You waiting for an engraved invite?"
Lord save me from sarcastic vampires. -- Charlaine Harris
The ache became longing, longing became nostalgia, nostalgia became fondness, and after a while he could see the funny side of it. A long while. -- Charlaine Harris
As exits go, that's a good one. It was pretty hard to have the last word with a vampire. -- Charlaine Harris
Easy to exemplify my true feelings towards him -- Charlaine Harris
Incontrovertible truth. -- Charlaine Harris
You want to own your own life," Eric said. "As much as anyone can." "Just when I think you're very simple, you say something complex," Eric said. "Are you complaining?" I tried to smile, failed. "No. -- Charlaine Harris
No thanks," I said, giving a sigh of repletion. "That was so good. -- Charlaine Harris
There's no way you can kill someone and get to the other side of the experience unchanged. -- Charlaine Harris
People are really interested in the concept of eternal youth in this plastic-surgery culture. -- Charlaine Harris
duct tape - real -- Charlaine Harris
I like the cerebral process. -- Charlaine Harris
When's your next doctor's appointment?" "In your last month, you go every week," Lynn said knowledgeably. "I'm due to go back in tomorrow. Maybe he'll tell me something. -- Charlaine Harris
What's the nature of your emergency?'
oh, shit! Just come! There are dead people out here! -- Charlaine Harris
I am a woman, hear me roar," I said.
Gosh, what prompted that?" Amelia asked, and I jumped -- Charlaine Harris
America is obsessed with youth. We all want to look young forever, and vampires do. They are caught in their prime, if that's when they've been turned. And they'll be that way forever. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric turned to me, kissed me on the lips very lightly, and looked at my face for a long moment. "He'll spare you," Eric said, and I understood he wasn't really talking to me but to himself. "You're too unique to waste."
And then he opened the door. -- Charlaine Harris
Probably these children were not demonic. Possibly they were quite typical. But collectively, they were hell. -- Charlaine Harris
It's a sad comment on humans that none of them are tolerable to one who can read their minds -- Charlaine Harris
Bring it on, fur-ass! -- Charlaine Harris
I believe if you write a great book, the chances are it'll get a great reception. -- Charlaine Harris
I really, really wanted to lose awareness of the here and now. The best way for me to do that was bury myself in a book. -- Charlaine Harris
Just because one of Arlene's husbands was a murderer is no reason for me to be ugly -- Charlaine Harris
If it pleases you and you can write at all, it's gonna please somebody else. -- Charlaine Harris
If you do that any more I'll have you whether you want to be had or not, he said, and I could tell he meant it. -- Charlaine Harris
Relaxing, intelligent feeling of being surrounded by generation after generation of thought. -- Charlaine Harris
I am so over Sookie and her precious fairy vagina and her unbelievably stupid name. - Pam -- Charlaine Harris
Love them to death. Sookie to Pam -- Charlaine Harris
As far as I could tell, Claude's benefit to the world was strictly as a decoration.
-Sookie -- Charlaine Harris
What are you, Zen Master Fang? -- Charlaine Harris
Sookie, you really are smarter than anyone gives you credit for being. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric: 'What part do you like best?' Sookie: 'oh your butt' Eric: 'My ... Bottom?' Sookie: 'yep -- Charlaine Harris
Vampires. They wrote the book on possessive. -- Charlaine Harris
Pam said, Sookie, I brought you something, too. I never thought I'd want to spend time with a human, but you're more tolerable than most ... -- Charlaine Harris
I am here," Eric said.
"And I am here." I was a little amused at Eric's phone answering technique.
"Sookie, my little bullet-sucker," he said, sounding fond and warm.
"Eric, my big bullshitter. -- Charlaine Harris
Not since the dark days of the Twilight franchise had it been so trendy to be dead. -- Charlaine Harris
Was that justice? she said. She sounded as though she honestly wanted to know. -- Charlaine Harris
No one would ever like him; he would never be accused of being unfair. -- Charlaine Harris
I dipped into his brain. He wasn't happy that I wasn't wearing a bra, because my boobs distracted him. He was thinking I was a bit too curvy for his taste. He was thinking he'd better not think about me that way anymore. He was missing his wife. -- Charlaine Harris
Then my great-grandfather was gone before I could ask him which vampire he meant. -- Charlaine Harris
Hey, neighbor," exclaimed the vision. It was Carey Osland in her working getup. I could see why she preferred loafers and housedresses. She looked marvelous, almost edible, but definitely not comfortable. "I'm glad to see you," Carey was saying warmly while I was decoding her identity. -- Charlaine Harris
It was like being around a particularly irritating two-year-old. -- Charlaine Harris
One of the most wonderful, and the most appalling, things about Eric loving me was that he didn't give a shit about anyone else. -- Charlaine Harris
It might be late September, but is was hot as the six shades of hell. -- Charlaine Harris
A year ago it would have torn me up, leaving a body behind as we sped away along the interstate. Now I was just glad it was him and not me who was lying in the woods. I was a terrible Christian and a decent survivalist. -- Charlaine Harris
My bodyguard was mowing the lawn in a pink bikini when the body fell from the sky. -- Charlaine Harris
I was embarrased, horrified and absolutely ready to jump him! -- Charlaine Harris
Men! Dead or alive, they could be exactly the same. -- Charlaine Harris
Nothing could stop tragedy from visiting your home. The angel of death would not pass over, leaving you unscathed, no matter how large your house was. -- Charlaine Harris
I am deaf, I love to read the ebook and regular books. But I am not picky any kind of books. I love all books are best authors. -- Charlaine Harris
I'd never seen anything like it. First a trial, then a few murders, then dancing. Life goes on. Or, in this case, death continues. -- Charlaine Harris
What pretty nail polish,' Eric said, smiling. [ ... ] Trust Eric to pick out the one thing that was new and different about me. -- Charlaine Harris
Of course I am grateful, and I'm sure you are, as you put it, a special vintage," Bill said politely, "But I have my own wine cellar. -- Charlaine Harris
The Rev's house is similar to Fiji's, but it's older, smaller, and has only sparse grass in the little front yard. It is also in no way welcoming or charming, and he has no cat. -- Charlaine Harris
Yes, I'm happy with Alan Ball's production of my novels. -- Charlaine Harris
Shall we stay out here, so we won't wake your friends?
It was news to me that our conversation was going to last that long. Apparently, Bill hadn't come over just to borrow a cup of blood. -- Charlaine Harris
Silver, gold - I don't discriminate! I like sparkly things. -- Charlaine Harris
Arelene's middle name was tolerance, mostly because she was too easygoing to take a moral stance. -- Charlaine Harris
No matter how we suffer, we have an obligation to others. We have to be unselfish enough to try to live in the right way, so others can get through their own lives without us fouling them up. -- Charlaine Harris
Do I look like I have anything ?" I asked him, in a reasonable voice.
He looked as unnerved as the nurse had. He said, "Sorry," and backed away. I took a step after him.
I screamed, "I HAVE NOTHING!" And then I said, in a perfectly calm voice, "See, I never had anything to start with. -- Charlaine Harris
A place isn't really yours until you clean it. -- Charlaine Harris
I'M SCARED I'LL SHOOT MY NEIGHBOR BY ACCIDENT IF I SEE HIM TROTTING DOWN THE ROAD, SAID A FARMER IN KANSAS, WHAT IF HE GETS AFTER MY CHICKENS? -- Charlaine Harris
My pride had risen up and whopped me in the face. I don't lose my temper a lot, but when I do, I make a good job of it. -- Charlaine Harris
Bill didn't get any kind of erotic thrill from a wineglass of LifeFlow. -- Charlaine Harris
To heck with him, I thought righteously. Him and the horse he rode in on. -- Charlaine Harris
They say when one door shuts, another one opens. But they haven't been living at my house. Most of the doors I open seem to have something scary crouched behind them, anyway. -- Charlaine Harris
Well, you know, writers just suck up new experiences - we're just like the vacuum cleaners of newness. -- Charlaine Harris
The idea that family would not harm you was a stupid assumption of the first order. -- Charlaine Harris
Thank you, thank you very much. -- Charlaine Harris
Then I happened upon a whore. -- Charlaine Harris
Snap out of it," I said. I wasn't in the mood.
With a huge effort, Eric reined himself in. "When you smell like that," he said. "I just want to fuck you and bite you and rub myself all over you."
-Eric drunk on Fairies. -- Charlaine Harris
The problem with living without the person you can't live without is eventually realizing you can live without them. -- Charlaine Harris
I had never seen so many cute men in one place in my life. But I could tell they were not for me. Russell was like the gay vampire Hugh Hefner, and this was the Playboy Mansion, with an emphasis on the boy. -- Charlaine Harris
The world seemed a bad and terrible place, all its denizens suspect, and I the lamb
wandering through the valley of death with a bell around my neck. -- Charlaine Harris
Life should imitate romance literature far more often. -- Charlaine Harris
As it was, I couldn't escape the feeling that I was out of my element. I found myself thinking of a book I'd left half-read at home and wishing I'd stuck it in my purse so I could pull it out now. -- Charlaine Harris
It can be tiring knowing so many people with hidden depths," Joe said. "Some days, shallow is good. -- Charlaine Harris
You can't use blackmail on someone who doesn't know anything about the hold you have on them. -- Charlaine Harris
This isn't what I expected when I found out you were sleeping in the house."
"What did you expect?"
"I expected you'd come over here because you couldn't wait an extra minute to have fabulous, mind-blowing sex with me. -- Charlaine Harris
If I was getting harder, it was in response to the world around me. -- Charlaine Harris
I love him, I said, but even to my own ears
I didn't sound happy about it. -- Charlaine Harris
Half of me (pathetically) wanted to let him know I'd kept the faith; half of me wanted to get in the toolshed and sharpen me some stakes. -- Charlaine Harris
I listened idly to the voices of the couple working in the back bedroom. -- Charlaine Harris
Somewhere, somewhere in this house, lurked a problem. For some reason, Jane's legacy wasn't entirely benevolent. -- Charlaine Harris
Humans who are born with the essential spark are born to experience or perform something wonderful, something amazing. -- Charlaine Harris
The fundamentalists were equally stymied. "We were worried about Adam and Steve," a Baptist minister said. "Should we have been more worried about Rover and Fluffy? -- Charlaine Harris
It's called Two and a Half Men," Dermot was telling his guest.
"I understand," Bellenos said. "Because the two brothers are grown, and the son isn't."
"I think so," Dermot said. "Don't you think the son is useless?"
"The half? Yes. At home, we'd eat him," Bellenos said. -- Charlaine Harris
I'm a middle-class former housewife who goes to my daughter's softball games. -- Charlaine Harris
No blame, no hate - why no communication? -- Charlaine Harris
Food that walked and talked, that was us. McPeople. -- Charlaine Harris
Was this a bad thing for a Christian to be doing? Probably. On the other hand, it had never occurred to me to ask the Methodist minister if he had a ritual in place to sever a blood bond between a woman and a vampire. -- Charlaine Harris
He handed me the keys. My hand closed over them. It felt like a formal investiture. -- Charlaine Harris
what are you?" he asked. "I'm a waitress. -- Charlaine Harris
That is what we are. Death. -- Charlaine Harris
Softie was not a word you could use in the same sentence as Eric. -- Charlaine Harris
. . . we didn't have any blankets and -- Charlaine Harris
I love the South, don't get me wrong; but it does lag behind the times in social developments. -- Charlaine Harris
I was surprised to find out there was a direct line from my palm to my, my, hootchie. -- Charlaine Harris
I'd been blindsided with the most painful knowledge: the first man to ever say he loved me had never loved me at all.
His passion had been artificial.
His pursuit of me had been choreographed. -- Charlaine Harris
Trees had died to make these forms, and that seemed a great pity to me. -- Charlaine Harris
Even witches sing the blues, -- Charlaine Harris
All the pictures on the walls, they all white as lilies and smiling like alligators. -- Charlaine Harris
Most humans were on one big island, to the fairies, and that island was adrift on a sea called I Totally Don't Care. -- Charlaine Harris
How could two people in love so misjudge each other? -- Charlaine Harris
When you're a professional you do your job no matter what gets in the way. You might take a sick day, you might take a personal day, but then you show back up or you won't get paid. Everyone develops his/her own strategy for dealing with days that are not productive. -- Charlaine Harris
Sometimes you just have to roll in it. -- Charlaine Harris
He managed to convey indifference, contempt, and boredom in the one word. -- Charlaine Harris
Well, if I'm not doing it for him, then I'm doing it for me, so I can feel proud. -- Charlaine Harris
Oh, no, I love going into a pen of lions wearing a sign that says Edible Lamb.
Manfred -- Charlaine Harris
There were toes. Those toes wouldn't be happy piggies. But they didn't have any right to be in the way. -- Charlaine Harris
Gay rights is just one of the social issues I'm interested in. I think that people might be less tense about it if we would all accept the fact that not everyone is wired the same way. -- Charlaine Harris
Would Eric enjoy being a Sooner? As I navigated through Shreveport, I wondered if Oklahoma vampires wore cowboy boots and knew all the songs from the musical. -- Charlaine Harris
I'd always been leery of Eric, but I'd appreciated his mischief, his single-mindedness, and his flair. If you could a vampire had jois de vivre, Eric had it in spades.
-Sookie -- Charlaine Harris
It was hard to have a good crisis when real life kept asking to be lived. -- Charlaine Harris
If this were the fifties, she'd be checking Sam's collars for lipstick stains. (Did people do that anymore? Why did women kiss collars, anyway? Besides, Sam almost always wore T-shirts.) -- Charlaine Harris
My bullshit metre is reading that as false'. -- Charlaine Harris
Buddy of yours?" Manfred asked, when he was sure his voice would be even.
"I don't think snake-shifters have buddies," Lemuel said. "They just know people they haven't tried to eat yet. -- Charlaine Harris
Very few of my characters are totally heroic or totally villainous. -- Charlaine Harris
If weeds could flourish with such vigor, may I could, too. -- Charlaine Harris
You got no right being in my head. That's..trespassing -- Charlaine Harris
I gave myself a mental shake. Snapping out of a slump, that was what today was all about. -- Charlaine Harris
She(Pam) said you had a habit of killing the bartenders of Fangtasia," Felicia said, her lovely doe eyes wide
with amazement. "She said I must come to beg your mercy. But you just seem like a human, to me. -- Charlaine Harris
I so seldom had to dispose of a human body myself, I was at a loss. Fairies turned into dust, and vampires flaked away. Demons had to be burned. Humans were very troublesome. -- Charlaine Harris
Look, how come he showed up now? When you have other fairies in the woods? And does that sound crazy when you say it out loud, or what? -- Charlaine Harris
Lillian is one of those disagreeable people who yet have some redeeming qualities, so that you can't write them off entirely - but you sure wish you could. -- Charlaine Harris
Sometimes the bitch wins. -- Charlaine Harris
I'd always enjoyed life, and I knew I would again. But I was going to have to slog through a lot of bad patches to get there -- Charlaine Harris
Oh, I took some night school courses in psychology, said Bill Compton, vampire. -- Charlaine Harris
Eric moved the broom experimentally and made an attempt to sweep the glass into the pan while it lay in the middle of the floor. Of course, the pan slid away. Eric scowled.
I'd finally found something Eric did poorly. -- Charlaine Harris
Was this the second body I'd found in the closet, or the third? I wondered why I even opened closet doors any more. -- Charlaine Harris
Aubrey looked a little - what? I couldn't identify it. -- Charlaine Harris
But men are less used to the idea of being raped than women are, and it strikes them with a fresh horror. With women, that horror comes right along with the female genitals. -- Charlaine Harris
This was an unpleasant trend. I didn't want a lot of guys popping in and out of my bedroom. I wanted one who would stay. -- Charlaine Harris
Jesus Christ, shepherd of Judea. -- Charlaine Harris
No threatening the cat!" Mr. Snuggly said. No -- Charlaine Harris
I kicked off my sandals, put my ice-tinkling glass on the small table by my current book. -- Charlaine Harris
with green beans and rice. -- Charlaine Harris
If there were an international butt competition, Eric would win, hands down - or cheeks up. -- Charlaine Harris
Episcopalians are pretty thin on the ground in the central United States. -- Charlaine Harris
Sookie," Eric said. I didn't think he'd heard a word. "Yield to me."
Well, that was pretty direct. -- Charlaine Harris
Food, the southern offering on the altar of crisis. -- Charlaine Harris
Those words are not a magical formula. They're not going to open my heart to you. -- Charlaine Harris
The worst thing about sleepless nights was the feeling of running in a hamster cage, at least mentally. The same thoughts, over and over . . . -- Charlaine Harris
Maybe she was being so hoity-toity because she didn't have her own fairy godmother. -- Charlaine Harris
Why bother to change, if you can't change into a wolf? -- Charlaine Harris
You just don't want a vampire pissed off at you. -- Charlaine Harris
Despite the failure of Velda Cannon's Depends, we'd had a great time. -- Charlaine Harris
I put my little yellow ball earrings in and wore my hair pulled up and back with a yellow banana clip holding it loosely. -- Charlaine Harris
How shall we go about this? Dermot asked. He was blond and Claude was dark; the looked like gorgeous bookends. -- Charlaine Harris
Why was it librarians had such a prim image? With all the information available in books right there at their fingertips, librarians could be the best-informed people around. About anything. -- Charlaine Harris
Most of the books that feature supernatural characters blending with the modern world and are usually set in big cities. -- Charlaine Harris
You have a vampire living in your basement, and you're stunned by a talking cat? -- Charlaine Harris
It's always possible for human beings to spoil their own peace of mind -- Charlaine Harris
People stubbornly lived their lives as they wanted, without regard to me, to an amazing degree. -- Charlaine Harris
The fae were gone from America. Their departure point? Bon Temps, Louisiana. The woods behind my house. -- Charlaine Harris
I found it harder and harder to stick to what was right, when what was expedient made better sense. -- Charlaine Harris
I added to my mental list of the odd things I'd done that day. I'd entertained the police, sunbathed, visited at a mall with some fairies, weeded and killed someone. Now it was powdered-corpse removal time. And the day wasn't over yet. -- Charlaine Harris
I've often wished when I started a book I knew what was going to happen. I talked to writers who write 80-page outlines, and I'm just in awe of that. -- Charlaine Harris
There are times to think and times to lie fallow -- Charlaine Harris
Every now and then I felt like I was Bill's doll. -- Charlaine Harris
