The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: Russo

DEFINITIONS

Russo: The author was an active part of the vampire scene long before she ever thought of writing about it. She was – and still is – a trusted member of the community. She obtained her MA Honours Arts Degree from the University of Glasgow in 1991 and set about teaching herself to be a journalist. Then in 1999 she taught herself to self-publish and launched Bite me magazine, single-handedly.

Arlene Russo is editor and publisher of Bite me magazine, the UK’s only glossy magazine dedicated to vampires and the supernatural. She is a recognized journalist in her field and has written many ‘exclusives’ for national newspapers from tabloids like The Sun to quality broadsheets like The Sunday Times. Arlene herself is the focus of extensive television, radio, and press coverage and is regularly contacted by the media to comment on related events. She has excellent contacts with international Dracula organizations, including The Vampire Empire (membership 25,000). She has forged strong relationships with many Dracula experts, including authors, historians, actors, and filmmakers. She is the author of Vampire Nation. She is often the first point of contact for the world’s media on unusual events. Most recently, she was the prime contact with the ‘vampire’ killing in Germany by the murderers who claimed they learned vampirism in Scotland from ‘The Leopard Man’. The author was one of the few people granted an interview with ‘The Leopard Man.’
