A Quick Bite

Hey, everyone! Today, it’s my pleasure to welcome to the blog author Patricia Josephine. She’s here to talk about her latest release, A Quick Bite.

But first up are true tales of real-life vampires…

Three Real Life Vampires (or so they say.)

Tales of vampires have fascinated humanity for centuries. Sometimes they are monsters, and other times, they are sexy, sparkling heroes. While most stories are complete fiction, here are three cases of so-called real vampires.

Mercy Brown.

Mercy Brown was a young woman who lived in New England around the 1900s. Disease spread to her family and the locals got the idea that that meant she was a vampire. After she died, her body was dug up to make sure she wasn’t a vampire. Her body hadn’t decomposed and they found fresh blood in her system, leading them to the conclusion that she was a vampire. They cut out her heart and burned, putting the ashes in a drink which was fed to her brother. They believed it would save him since he was sick. Sadly, it didn’t work.

Fritz Haarmann, The Vampire of Hanover

Fritz Haarmann was a German serial killer in the early 1900s. His method of killing was to bite the neck of his victims so they bled to death. That led to rumors of a real vampire prowling for victims. Of course, alleged cases of real vampires weren’t uncommon then, but they were usually baselss. Fritz Haarmann was eventually captures and executed.

Arnold Paole

Arnold Paole was a Serbian man who feel to his death in the early 18th century. A sad tragedy, but the story became remarkable because afterwards, local villagers stated he had become a vampire. Their proof: 16 villagers had died recently. His body was due up to be examined. They found no decomposition and claimed to have seen fresh blood on his lips. So they staked the body.




These monsters tickle our imagination.

Sink your teeth into a collection of tales about paranormal creatures that go bump in the night. Each story is told in exactly 200 words and designed to give you a quick bite no matter how busy your day is.

    I actually tried to track down the grave of Mercy Brown, but I think they removed the marker or something. Because of course people’s graves can’t go undesecrated.

  4. Liz A. says:

    Those are creepy. Congrats on the new release, Patricia.

  5. Joe says:

    I hope further deaths never took place after staking Arnold Paole’s body.
    As a teenager I used to watch those Dracula movies acted by Lee. It was real nail biting suspense for me.

  6. Thanks for having me, MJ!
