Tense, gripping, gory at times, The Heavens Rise is every bit the novel one would expect from, well, someone like his mom. But they are not rivals, in fact, his being a successful author has even brought them closer.
I do some readings from the book in a sultry, serious voice that's getting me some weird mail on Facebook (the background music is creepy and fun too), and my mother, Anne Rice, joins us to pretend that she's actually read the book.
I was reminded of the importance of art, literature and culture during a preview reception Saturday night for the opening of the new West Hollywood Library. The new Library complex has a creative feel to it, with art inside and out.
