Author Charlaine Harris has decided its time to end the Sookie Stackhouse books.
Harris says she will write two more installments of the best-selling series before retiring Sookie and the rest of the crew on the printed page.
“I’m writing Book Twelve and then there will be Book Thirteen. And then I’ll think of something else new and wonderful to do,” Harris says. “I think it’ll be total closure. I don’t go back to things once I’ve finished them. That’s kind of what I do. I don’t want to write Sookie after I get stale. Yeah, I’ll miss them, I’m sure, because I have lived with them for quite a long time—12 years now. And it did take two years to sell the first book. But I think writers like to do different things. At least this writer does.”
