Charlaine Harris looks to new book series after Sookie

***Caution: Spoilers in article***

FORT WORTH, Texas — The final book in Charlaine Harris' best-selling series about telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse provoked such an outcry that some fans sent death threats and curses.

But after spending the last 15 years writing about the intrepid small-town Southern girl whose adventures have featured a host of supernatural beings, Harris says she has no regrets.

"I had to be true to my own vision for the books otherwise, what kind of writer am I? Not a very good one," said Harris, adding that fan reaction to the end of the series was distressing.

Harris said she knew it was time to end the Sookie books, which inspired the hit HBO series "True Blood," when she wasn't approaching each new addition with excitement.
