On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina had reached maximum strength as the storm surged through the city of New Orleans. Driven by the hurricane force winds, a heavy, metal trash barrel crashed into the door of a tomb at St. Louis No. 1 cemetery, ripping the hinges from the stone. Andrea, Sonja and Nicholas, a terrifying m�nage � trois from a rural valley outside of Sighisoara, Romania, escaped from the tomb and the secret U.S. military project Operation Voodoo, and found shelter in the Iberville Housing project bordering the French Quarter.

As the world descended into the horrors and massive death of World Wars I and II, a clever and nurturing Mother Nature devised a plan for these three to remain vibrant and very much alive by creating a natural strain of living vampires. News of these three special children soon spread. Captured by the Nazis in 1941, they were confined to an experimental hospital for genetic engineering. Now, after decades of persecution, they are free�and very hungry.

Please join us in the five-book series, Les Trois Souris Aveugles, as alpha male Nicholas, his artistic lover, Sonya, and their beautiful, intelligent and very lethal childhood companion, Andrea, find their way as they awaken to a new life of romance, hedonism and wealth in the French Quarter of New Orleans.

DB's Biography

D.B. Coulson was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in the late 1940s. His father was employed in the vast boundaries of the "oil patch," so moving around from town to town chasing that "black gold" was a way of life. D.B.'s father was an accomplished artist and musician when he was not chasing down oil rigs and dodging tornados, so the love of music and art came easy to D.B. as a boy and young man. As a pretty good athlete in football and wrestling, a young D.B. had to make a choice between music and sports in college. Music won out and the road to creative writing and song writing powered by a vivid imagination became the preferred pathway. Playing rhythm and blues music in a very successful rock and roll band kept D.B. on the road, where he learned to appreciate the life of a traveler and musician. The love of travel and adventure became part of his soul as he traversed the American Southwest in his earlier years.

In 1967 he spent a week in New Orleans in the French Quarter, where he fell in love with the European, French-designed walking district known as the Vieux Carr� or Old Square as we say it in English. To this day the French Quarter of New Orleans is still one of his favorite haunts. Powered by an education in world history, philosophy and art, D.B. decided to see this great world he had read so much about and left America for Europe, where he traveled extensively in the late 1980s.

Loving the road, the sights and scenery of this wonderful Earth, he discovered that there are many sides to human behavior as he frequented the pubs, taverns, art galleries and music halls along his journey. Not all roads are paved with flower beds and scented vines, he discovered. Some roads are treacherous, with dank dark corners and characters that would prefer to do harm as much as good. Discerning between good and evil is a daunting task as one travels the more interesting and less traveled highways and byways of life. This Les Trois Souris Aveugles series is but one of the offerings of D.B. Coulson from his travels around our world as he delves into the unknown in search of the good, the bad and the bizarre of what this planet Earth has to offer.
