    did you have the entire six books mapped out in your head before you wrote them or did you write them as you went along??? thx

  2. Emma says:

    Hey Richelle I have a couple of questions for u. First off I have to tell u that I Loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove this series!
    My Questions are one where did u come up with the idea of spirit and how come the people who have it can do so many things, but those who don’t can only like light things on fire. Second what if one of the moroi get carried away when they where feeding and accidentally killed the person they where feeding off then would they become strigoi . Third can u give us any hints as to what happens in the next book, because I just finished Sprit Bond and I literally threw it when some of the stuff that happened happened, which was not a good thing because I was on an airplane at the time. Finally why did Lissa choose to save Rose instead of her parents. And could she have saved her parent. Thank you sooooo much, lots of Love Emma.

    Hi.How come Moroi and dhampirs believe in God and have Christian beliefs?They are vampires after all aren’t they?

  4. Mary says:


    You have such wonderfully unique ideas for your vampire world. So unique they really are called vampires. I think I had read somewhere that you studied mythology. My question is was there a particular myth that helped or inspired you to come up with you Moroi, Dhampirs and Strigoi? I also love The Dark Swan series and can’t wait for the new book, very unique as well.

    Hey Richelle,
    I have a couple of questions for you about your series:
    1) Where did you come up with the idea for Vampire Academy?
    2) How do you think you relate to your characters? Any particular you like or dislike?
    3) What made you decide to write about vampires?

  6. Fan says:

    Do all the books come in hardcover?
    How long is the series going to be? If you’re not sure estimate?

  7. Marie says:

    First I have to say how much I love the Vampire Academy series! I’ve only just started reading Succubus Blues, so I can’t say whether I’m going to love that as much, but it’s still great.

    One question that I’ve been thinking about for some time, ever since I read it on a forum, is how the Moroi handle the blood drinking when their children are younger. Since Moroi and dhampirs go to school together from an early age, how do they make sure that Moroi children control themselves and don’t bite their classmates or friends? And how do they handle giving blood to the children? From what age do they drink from feeders?
    I hadn’t thought about it before I read someone else’s thoughts about it, but my practical nature went into overdrive immediately, so I’d love to hear if this is something you’ve thought about when you created the Vampire Academy universe.

    Also, I’d like to ask you if you’re omniscent when it comes to the worlds you create? Some authors know everything that goes on in their world, even if they don’t write about it. Some only decide on things when the time comes, and they have to. And some discover things about their world when their characters tell them what’s going on. Which kind of author are you when it comes to those things?

    Again, thank you Richelle for writing these wonderful books which absolutely captivate us! 🙂

    Kind Regards,

    i have 3 question:

    1) What or who inspired you to create a character like rose?
    2)is Rose going to end up Adrian? or at least there is going to be something else between then?
    3)i have heard that the next book is going to be the last book from Rose point of view, if is so, Do you have any idea who is going to be your main character?(i think it should be Adrian or Christian)

  10. Lia says:

    I LOVE Vampire academy!!

    So my question for Richelle is:

    Will we see more of Janine and Abe in Last Sacrifice or their relationship was really just a fling??

  11. Zeinab says:

    Are you planning to visit Sweden anytime soon? We would love having you here! 🙂

  12. Mina B. says:

    First off, I adore The Vampire Academy Series and I love Spirit Bound.


    One of the reasons why I enjoyed the series so much was because I felt Rose’s character blossomed or matured after every book. What I don’t understand is why in Spirit Bound it seemed like Rose lost all the wisdom she gained in the previous books? In Spirit Bound it was as if she reverted back to being a simple teenager even after she went through all that death and despair in Siberia? Why? Why? Why?

    If you say it’s all in the name of love, I think I’ll puke. :0)

    I would like to undertstand why the Author is promoting violence against women. The fact that while they were on the Island,on thier honeymoon, he unknowingly abuses her and she is still all over him and tells that it is OK! What kind of message is the author sending to these teenage girls. I was shocked and I just don’t get it! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!

  14. Tonisha says:
