Why is Anne Rice your pseudonym? Why is she your representative?

She could see us; through her pain and her doubt, she truly understood what we are and that we are not demonic, evil creatures meant to stay in the shadows out of shame of our monstrosity. That we are not all heartless predators of the innocent, the pure.

No, we are men and women of heart and soul, no less than a human. Humans are evil and cruel too, capable of terrible things, and so why should we be judged that there are amongst us those who are the same? Most of us are civilised and only want to live quiet, normal lives, desiring no interference in the human world. Mrs. Rice wished to give us that peace, that dignity, to turn us from monsters of myth.
