Gidion’s Blood

“For Gidion Keep, hunting vampires is easy. It’s high school that might kill him.” Local author Bill Blume’s first young adult novel Gidion’s Hunt (originally titled Tales of a 10th Grade Vampire Hunter) was published in 2013. His most recently published novel, Gidion’s Blood, is the next in the Gidion Hunt, Vampire Hunter series. Bill discovered his love for the written word while in high school and has been writing ever since. His short stories have been published in many fantasy anthologies and various ezines. Just like the father figure in his first novel, Bill works as a 911 dispatcher for Henrico County. He is heavily involved in James River Writers. Bill talks with host Robin Farmer about his writing process, the themes his writings explore and the importance of the supportive writing community in Richmond.   (18 minutes)
