Do you have a favorite author whose books are set in New Orleans? Though many have written about ghosts and other paranormal goings on of the French Quarter, one of my absolute favorites is Sherrilyn Kenyon.
My first visit to New Orleans was two years ago. The draw, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter Series. Who wouldn’t be interested in seeing where Greek gods, soul-sucking vampires (Daimons), and those who kill them while protecting the human race (Dark-Hunters) interact in modern day. (Her newest book in the series, Time Untime, was released today. This particular story takes place in Las Vegas, so that’s for another day.)
It was a total fan-girl vacation! I researched the various locations mentioned throughout Kenyon’s books to see which were real then sought them out once I was there. Most were restaurants, so needless to say, I ate well.
I’m headed back to New Orleans tomorrow for the Authors After Dark conference, featuring 80 paranormal and urban fantasy authors. Sadly, Sherrilyn isn’t attending. However, I will reconnect with her and her characters by going back to dine at Brennans and The Acme Oyster House. And, who can go to the French Quarter and not go to Café Du Monde!
