Amy Mah is a UK based author who writes unique fantasy novels about vampires, demons and other terrors of the night.
To date, Amy has released 5 books through Reardon Publishing. Her audience is mainly teenage vampire girls, and most of her books are fully illustrated by manga artist Heby Sim – in which the author Amy has been transformed into a manga character using real photos as a reference.
Her writing is in an easy to understand format explaining everything a teenage vampire girl would need to know about living life as a modern Vampire. After all, life can be extremely complex for ordinary teens – and even more so for vampires.
For example: What is fashionable to wear when eating out? Fang maintenance & how to keep your claws sharp. Should you let a boy bite you on the first date?
Easy to understand, clear advice is given to every day problems – for example: When you get an urge to bite: “We all get those normal urges to bite things, and I must point out it is very normal. Claws are all well and good in a fight but a bite gives the extra advantage of getting a refreshing drink at the same time. Lots of girls worry about showing their fangs in public, believing that to show your fangs is rude, but don’t be shy – they can be a girls greatest asset (OK, second greatest asset). If a boy is being rude to you, don’t just snarl at him, just bite him! You’re a vampire – why do you think you have sharp teeth if not for sinking them into a boy who is being rude to you?”
Where It All Began
Amelia Mah – or “Amy” is a snarky, sarcastic and cynical author who started a very popular blog about how she sees the world from the point of view of a modern teenage vampire – a very bored teenage vampire, who has been forced to remain a teenager for far, far too long.
“She may have very good teeth and the ability to hang from ceilings but life is far from easy.”
This journey started at school, in real life. More or less. Actually, it started when she had to leave high school – in a hurry, because the bodies had started to pile up and people – usually vampophobic people, always tended to blame her because, well – she was the only one around who had fangs.
At first, Amy didn’t know she could really write, and viewed it all as some kind of “social experiment”. For some reason, Amy sees life in a different way to most people – and again, for some reason, when she expresses her logic in books, people seem to like it. When she expressed the same logic in the vampire community, it resulted in a widespread panic!
In order to test her ideas about advertising, Amy needed something to advertise – which is why she decided to be an author… so she she sat down one day and wrote a book. To her surprise, “Fangs Rule: A Girl’s Guide To Being A Vampire” turned out to be quite good (published by Reardon Publishing in 2011) – and as she rather liked writing, she carried on doing it. Besides, the hate mail and free publicity she received from the vampire community was only a plus!
Following the success of her first book “Fangs Rule: A Girl’s Guide To Being A Vampire”, Amy expanded the idea of life as a teenage vampire into a series of novels and followed up with “Vampire” (2012), “Smoking Hot” (2014), and “A Bad Hair Day Every Day books 1 and 2” (2016).
At the moment she has completed novels in three distinct series, “Nightlife”, “Body Swap” and “A Bad Hair Day”, with more titles in these series still to follow.
