Most Prolific Author: A bountiful spinner of yarns about the undead 

Chelsea Quinn Yarbro

Known affectionately as CQY to her devoted fans -- many of whom sport ghastly pale complexions and have their teeth filed down to points -- cartographer-turned-yarnspinner Chelsea Quinn Yarbro writes three novels a year, and then some. That makes seventy so far, 24 of which feature the fictional Count Saint-Germain, a versatile vampire based on an actual European born circa 1690 and said by some never to have died: an aristocrat, a hatmaker, a lover, an alchemist allegedly able to increase the size of pearls. Yarbro still lives in her hometown of Berkeley, a burg she says is well suited to researching and writing about weird stuff. She's also written hundreds of short stories, plus nonfiction books about history -- one of her favorite topics, which she brings enthusiastically to life whether it's an account of the crusades or of a bloodsucking bisexual ancient Roman emperor. Among her novels are Hotel Transylvania, Beastnights, Writ in Blood, Poison Fruit, Communion Blood, Blood Roses, Blood Games, Death to Spies, The Flying Scotsman, and Trouble in the Forest, volumes 1 and 2.
