Writer Kathryn Leigh Scott recently hosted a lunch in New York City to celebrate her new novel, Dark Passages. The author starred in Dark Shadows, and called her novel a “love letter” to the vampire soap opera from the late 1960s.
Here’s more from FishbowlNY: “Set in the swinging ’60s, it tells the tale of an actress moonlighting as a Playboy bunny who just happens to be vampire and is determined to make it in New York City without her supernatural powers. While working on the cult hit Dark Passages, she meets her nemesis, a 300-year-old witch.”
The author had just returned from London after shooting a cameo for Tim Burton‘s Dark Shadows film.
Some of the writers and publishing executives at the party included literary agent Ed Victor, Marie Claire editor Jonanna Coles and Men’s Health editor-in-chief David Zinczenko. The crowd also included CNBC news anchor Joe Kernen, EMI music’s VP of promotions Neil Lasher and Discovery (ID) president Henry Schleiff.
