She uses surprisingly short chapters, most ending with a suspenseful note that practically begs the reader to move on for just one more page. His tale is like a curiosity shop, filled with lovely and unusual things…. Rice implements all of her tricks — spirits, ghosts, vampires, witches, strong family bonds, platonic and forbidden romantic love. The finale should elicit a squeal of excitement from readers who thought Rice was merely going through the motions. Luckily, that lull has passed. Blackwood Farm closes with enough unearthed family secrets to fill another novel and a cliffhanger that promises a sequel.
Unlike some of your previous novels, which take their names from central characters, Blackwood Farm takes its name from a place. Does this change mark a shift in your work from toward a greater emphasis on place? The property encompasses the darkness and evil of the swamp and the brightness and promise of the house and its gardens. Love is the abiding theme of the family; yet there is menace among the spirits that haunt the place, and a dreadful secret lurking too near in the swamp. The novel ends on a note of suspense which takes place at Blackwood Farm.
Blackwood Farm is so integral to the story that it seems a character in its own right. Did you take inspiration for it from any special locale in your own experience? The whole concept of Blackwood Farm—this beautiful Bed and Breakfast Hotel where people go for regular feasts—the Christmas Dinner, the Easter Buffet, weddings, parties, things of this sort—was born out of my experience with St. Run by my family it has been the scene of book parties for as much as 8, people, and for a grand wedding for my godchild that made the news as far away as New York.
All my good experiences of St. Plus I put it out in the country very near where my beloved Aunt Pat lived, and used many of my impressions of that rural area to give it a special down home flavor. Much of what I have experienced in the South is in the novel, and it represents a new commitment in me to the South. Blackwood Farm is peopled with ghosts who practice both good and evil. What does this say about the nature of haunting? The ghosts in Blackwood Farm are of varying kinds, but my own theories of ghosts have been fairly consistent throughout the Vampire Chronicles and the Mayfair Witches books as well.
I think ghosts can be either good or evil. They can come down from Heaven to interfere for good. Or they can be Earthbound spirits who are restless for revenge or some participation in human life. It is almost impossible to know what the ghosts are up to. They can fool you. Can ghosts demand a relationship with the living? If so, do they seek out individuals of their own will, or does the past or some other kind of connection compel them? Yes, a ghost can demand a relationship with some one who is living.
I explored that in The Witching Hour. And I explore it again in Blackwood Farm. But the human being is under no obligation whatsoever to honor that demand. Quite to the contrary. As to why ghosts seek certain people, how can we know?
Tell us about Tarquin Blackwood. Well, my hero is six foot four, black curly hair, blue eyes. He is in many ways modeled on my son, Christopher, except that Christopher is a blond.
Blackwood Farm The Vampire Chronicles 9 (paranormal Romance) by Rice Anne
Quinn is highly intelligent and he does not fit in ordinary school. He blossoms under home teaching, the kind of home teaching and stimulation I wish that I had had as a kid.

I give him what I wish I had had. Quinn is really a young American prince—a kid who has everything—when he is kidnapped and made a vampire by the dark force that broods in Sugar Devil swamp. It is a tragedy that he ever went out into the swamp trying to solve the mystery of Sugar Devil Island. In so doing he drew the evil into himself, and was taken away. When he runs into another awful tragedy with Goblin, the ghost who has haunted him since early childhood, he goes to Lestat.
Jasmine was inspired by black people and some white people whom I know to hold themselves back.

So she does some of everything. Are his ghosts an articulation of his interior life, or are they external elements acting upon him? The ghosts who haunt Quinn come from outside. Goblin, the doppelganger ghost who is with Quinn since childhood is the essential mystery of the novel. We only come to understand him and what he wants at the very end. Surrogacy is so present in the relationships of these characters to one another.
Why is this, and what is the import of the rearrangements of familial and sexual relationships in Blackwood Farm? The truly great characters of the novel know how to love unstintingly and when a relationship fails, they fill the gap. So we do have surrogacy and we do have unusual relationships. In the world of Blackwood Farm, the good characters simply refuse to neglect each other. Her love influences everything and everyone at Blackwood Farm.
