Local author Elizabeth Lasky shares her witty debut novel, The Silver Option. Jeff didn't ask to be a vampire and growing fangs did not improve his life in 1990s Cincinnati. He lives in his parents' basement, works a mediocre job, and is still a virgin at 30-years-old (or is it 19?). He feeds on animal blood and avoids getting too close to people. Until he meets Roxanne. Roxanne breaks through his reservations. Their relationship survives bloodlust and attempted suicide. Then sex makes Roxanne a vampire...and silver makes Jeff human again. Now Jeff must decide if he should rejoin humanity or commit to the woman who made him feel human.
