Rice gained a vast cult readership for her supernatural novels.
Her first book, "Interview with the Vampire," was published in 1976. The book was the first in her popular "Vampire Chronicles" series, which includes 1985's "The Vampire Lestat" and 1988's "The Queen of the Damned." In 1996, "Interview with the Vampire" was made into a film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt. Cruise played the vampire Lestat de Lioncourt in this film, and Stuart Townsend took over the role of the infamous Lestat for "Queen of the Damned," the film adaptation of another "Vampire Chronicles" novel. Rice's fascinating bloodsucker film also became the subject of the 2006 musical "Lestat," with songs written by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
Rice was also known for her sadomasochistic erotica, including "Beauty's Punishment." Her later novels include "Servant of the Bones" and "Vittorio the Vampire." She also wrote mainstream fiction using the pen name Anne Rampling.
Rice returned to her Catholic faith in 1998, which had a tremendous impact on her work. She soon renounced her vampire novels, choosing to focus on subjects more in line with her renewed beliefs. In 2005, Rice published "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt," her first novel in a trilogy chronicling the life of Jesus. The second title in the series, "Christ the Lord: The Road to Cana," was released in 2008.
Angels have also found their way into Rice's work. She created a series of supernatural thrillers, "Songs of Seraphim," which explores themes of good and evil. The first title, "Angel Time," hit bookshelves in 2009, followed by "Love and Evil" in 2011. Around this time, Rice distanced herself from organized religion.
Rice then delved into the world of werewolves with a new series, which began with "The Wolf Gift." She followed up with "The Wolf Gift Chronicles" and "The Wolves of Midwinter," published in October 2013. Her novel, "Prince Lestat," won Best Horror of 2014 in GoodReads Choice Awards of 2014. Her latest novel is the 13th installment of "The Vampire Chronicles" series titled "Blood Communion: A Tale of Prince Lestat" (2018). Paramount Television and Anonymous Content have recently optioned the rights to 11 books from this bestselling series.
Rice also lives with type 1 diabetes, which ordinarily strikes children but was diagnosed later in her life after suffering mysterious and potentially fatal symptoms. She often speaks out to raise awareness of the disease.
