Every Drop of Your Blood
The nightmare begins when Omar, an Iraqi, arrives in the United States on a work experience trip. He fears the worst when he wakes up in a white cell - but soon finds that he is in a different country altogether - and he has a job to do.
Anne Rooney, children's and teens' author, does not eat meat in case the taste of blood becomes too appealing. When not writing books, she haunts the cemeteries and catacombs of Paris and Venice and raises non-vampiric daughters and chickens in Cambridge. She studied at a haunted college and her first car was a haunted van; the undead hold no fears for her.
