Author Anne Rice explores the realms of spirituality
After 38 years of authoring books about vampires and darkness, a success novelist restored her faith in the God of her youth, vowing now to write for him.
Anne Rice grew up in a devoted Catholic family, knowing the importance of God and obtaining something in life beyond materialistic things. Still, she felt unshakably confined within the parameters of religion. At the age of 18, she walked away from it all and chose to live a life believing that, “In order for me to grow up, I have to put God aside.”
Though her professional career was very successful as an author of Vampire tales, she was a Christ-haunted person. “I knew that as long as I denied Him, I wouldn’t know rest or peace. You must know that you can’t save yourself through art or music. You can’t do it through travel or wealth. Your attempts to achieve salvation alone ultimately amounts to nothing.” She found herself very ready to go back to God.
