Clark Hays, class of '89, recently co-authored a novel "The Cowboy and Vampire." The book was released by Midnight Ink (Nov. 2010). Clark wrote the novel along with his wife, Kathleen McFall. The book owes much to his history and religious studies background from MSU. Clark describes the book as "A good story, with a fresh look at vampires (they have their own religious framework)." He said, "And the story *about the story* is equally compelling." Learn more at
