Somewhere along the line though I started getting into the paranormal. The first movie I ever saw with my bestie Shawn was Interview with a Vampire. She was a longtime vampire lover, and I was interested in it mostly because of Brad Pitt. I liked the movie, some of it creeped me out, but it opened my eyes to vampires. After seeing the movie I read the book and liked that too. Shawn roped me into watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer (which even as a girl in her late teens I was afraid to watch) and I sort of fell in love.
Growing up, things like monsters, vamps, and shifter’s were supposed to be scary but somewhere in the mid 90’s that changed and suddenly the paranormal stuff was presented in a whole different way. Angel and Spike on Buffy were hot and funny not scary. Oz was the sweetest and cutest little short guy who also happened to turn into a wolf once a month. It was thanks to this shift in perspective that pulled me in.
