Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center Lake Anne
Instructor: Mary Kipps
Even if you’re not a fan of vampires, you won’t want to miss this entertaining event. Along with amusing lore about vampires’ ethnicity, author and poet Mary Kipps will present a reading of her paranormal satire All in Vein, a series of witty vignettes about a lovable vampire named Victor who must attack in the nude, and the luscious and arresting policewoman who may (or may not) be stalking him.
Mary Kipps is a senior information security consultant and former IT executive who loves to write, particularly poetry, and was a 2014 Pushcart Prize nominee. Her work has appeared regularly in journals and anthologies across the United States and abroad since 2005. All in Vein was her first Kindle eBook, followed in the summer of 2017 by a relationship parody Bitten: A Practical Guide to Dating a Vampire. Although not a lover of vampires, Mary is fond of humorous reads. A Sucker for Heels, the eBook sequel to All in Vein and Victor’s misadventures, was published in the fall of 2017.
