Based on the character “Beatrice” from the novel, SO YOU MIGHT BE A VAMPIRE.

Beatrice emerges back into the world after an absence of ten years and stumbles through strange interactions in a world that is alien to her. On a mission to preserve what is left of her sanity, she attempts to visit old friends who are now all gone, but that brings her to the attention of two dangerous men… who may want to kill her.  The answer to her insanity may be her only last resort.
