dc.description.abstract The purpose of this thesis is to examine the growing popularity of vampire fiction, particularly paranormal and vampire romances for teens. Vampire fiction began with Carmilla and Dracula as popular scary stories the 1800s, but in recent years has been transformed into a cultural phenomenon that represents love and acceptance. Traditional vampire mythology has been renewed and recreated for a younger modern audience. However, as with other popular genres, vampire fiction follows set narrative patterns. This thesis will explore the conventions of vampire literature and its transformation into its current form.
