Tanya Wright, one of the stars of the hit show, True Blood is more than just an actress. No, this dark and lovely lady proves that in her debut novel, Butterfly Rising, of which she has just completed the film adaptation of. In the film, in which she not only stars in but also wrote, produced and directed, she tells the story of two girls whose paths intersect under mysterious circumstances and lead the reader on a journey they never would have expected.

In my interview with the steaming hot actress today, she discusses her novel, her inspirations for success, how the death of her brother prompted her to inspire others, what her True Blood cast members really think of her success and so much more.
