An energy vampire using the name Valencia Alucard is behind the theft of a priceless jewel, and Mr. Franklin Forrester--the curator of the Mount Melania Museum--has called in the Super Sleuths Seven to help him solve this mystery. At Alucard Castle, Roxy is attacked and drained of her energy, and the Sleuths trace her energy drain back to a failed experiment scrapped by one of Eden Starling's friends--but the shocking conclusion is that Miss Alucard is t who she appears to be. Even with some help from the true owner of Alucard Castle--Anneliese Benton--can the Super Sleuths Seven trap Valencia during the annual Alucard Monster Ball and expose her scheme once and for all?
Charles Andrew Johnson is the younger of two children born to an Alabama-originated family on both his father's and his mother's side. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York. While growing up in his life, Charles displayed incredible cognitive abilities beyond his years and proved his intellect had grown so much when his second-grade teacher had him promoted to third grade early in the elementary-school year. Charles also has a talent for writing, but did not start professionally until he learned of BooksByBookends, a Small Publishing business stationed in New Jersey at the time. Using their business (which has moved to several points in the Tri-State Area until it settled down in Brooklyn), he has published a series called Princess Luanne and Wizard Heatheria. Building on his first book, What Is Destiny?, he has continued to write books until he had realized he had to take it one step at a time and write and publish one book at a time. The main characters in Charles's book series--Princess Luanne and Heatheria Winchester (he decided on the names while playing with several large action figures)--reflect Charles's personality in a way, as, like them, he longs for good changes in his life.
