Creator Backlash: Virtually disowned The Vampire Chronicles a few years after she reconverted to Catholicism, instead focusing on Christ The Lord. Then, after she again renounced organized religion, abandoned Christ the Lord and began work on the The Vampire Chronicles once again with Prince Lestat in 2014.
Creator Recovery: The tone of much of her fiction became substantially more positive and optimistic after her conversion to Christianity, as she herself acknowledged:
“My faith in Christ is central to my life. My conversion from a pessimistic atheist lost in a world I didn't understand, to an optimistic believer in a universe created and sustained by a loving God is crucial to me.
