Nov. 10, 2008 - PRLog -- Indianapolis, IN – Author Charlotte de ne Guerre has unearthed the legend of the Vampire and with it a secret that has haunted her family for centuries.  

Inspired by true events, Grave Disorder is the tale of the Baroness Elysia von Eschenbach, a young 17th century noblewoman who doesn’t understand the bizarre physical breakdowns which have plagued her.  Betrothed to the arrogant son of a wealthy French woman who is more interested in Elysia’s title and land, the consequences of her condition are even more dire.  When Elysia absorbs too much sun and drinks too much wine, she lapses into a near-death coma at her wedding…only to wake up after her abrupt funeral.  

The gothic tale of Vampires began before the practice of embalming.  In her research, Charlotte discovered that her ancestor died on her wedding day and as the custom of the time, was buried immediately…only to recover or “rise” several days later walking out of the mausoleum on her own.  She was labeled a vampire.  While not a Vampire, Charlotte has the symptoms that are similar, pale skin and a reaction to sun that gives her burns and blisters. She has porphyria, also known as the disease of the Vampire. It’s a hereditary disease where a defective enzymes leaves the patients susceptible to “allergic reactions” when they have too much sun, alcohol or the wrong foods leaving the patient with a depleted oxygen supply that can cause violent stomach pain, coma-like paralysis and even instant cardiac arrest.

Charlotte suffered and went undiagnosed for 50 years, now at the age of 74 she has written Grave Disorder, a historical fiction novel inspired by the true events of her ancestor that tells the tale of the Vampire and she hopes, to bring awareness to the disease Porphyria.  For all the Twilight saga fans, Grave Disorder is the next great read, bringing reality into the realm of the mystical.  The romance is great and when Elysia gets even with her "husband", it's the best!

Understanding the Disease - The American Porphyria Foundation is eager for the understanding as well.  There are many people who are afraid to seek treatment because of the stigma and then of course, there are many more people who are needlessly suffering because the majority of today’s doctors are simply unaware of the disease.  

Grave Disorder is available on Amazon and at www.gravedisorderbook.com .
