Hayes, who was overweight, died of a heart attack at the age of 37. Drew Hayes, the fantasy author, noticed that some search engines would occasionally pair pictures of his face with articles detailing the death of Drew Hayes, the graphic artist.

Because people kept contacting the author to determine whether or not he was alive, Hayes decided to include a page on his website that specifically reminds people that he’s alive and well.
Hayes attended Texas Tech University, graduating with a BA in English. When he first decided to write fiction, Hayes wanted to produce serious, somewhat gritty urban fantasy in the vein of The Dresden Files.

However, early readers did not appreciate his work. From what they saw, the author’s style did not match the tone he wanted to create. Initially, Hayes resisted these opinions. But later on, he realized that his early readers were correct.

The most substantial aspect of his writing style was the humor, and he couldn’t deny the fact that he was better off leaning into the comedic elements of his stories instead of replicating the style of The Dresden Files. Today, people know Hayes primarily because of Fred the Vampire Accountant.

Hayes created the character because he was tired of Urban fantasy. The genre was filled with desperate, shy, socially awkward characters that became awesome, ass-kicking heroes after discovering their supernatural gifts. Most of the urban fantasy novels Hayes read followed this blueprint.

The author wanted to create a fictional world where a character became a vampire, but the transformation did nothing to change their personality. His goal was to show that human beings were averse to change and that the introduction of the supernatural could not produce the drastic transformations in character seen in most urban fantasy novels.

The books succeeded because of the humor. Hayes believes that he is naturally funny. However, that doesn’t make the writing process any easier. He has to write, edit, and rewrite his books to make them appear effortlessly funny. This is why he doesn’t buy the idea that an author has to be funny to write comedic stories.

From what he has seen, writers can do anything if they work hard enough. Hayes is well acquainted with the hard work that publishing entails. He doesn’t plot his stories out beforehand.

The author creates key checkpoints. But everything that happens between those checkpoints is fluid. As a result, he has to edit his manuscripts carefully to ensure that the final story flows cohesively.

Best Drew Hayes Books

One of the most challenging aspects of the publishing industry for the author is isolation. Because he spends so much time at home, Hayes cannot help but talk to himself. Hayes’ best books include:

NPCs: When the quest ends and the adventurers defeat their enemies, life doesn’t end. The adventurers will move on, but the NPCs have to stay behind. They have to keep the world running.

Four NPCs found themselves in an unexpected pickle. A night of drinking at a tavern took a wrong turn. When all was said and done, the NPCs had to make a decision.

They could sit back and watch as their town was destroyed, or they could pretend to be adventurers, arming themselves with salvaged equipment and marching to their death.

Super Powereds Year 1: Lander University is special. They offer the Hero Certification Program, a course that turns students with special powers into superheroes.

This year, Lander has accepted five newcomers with a unique set of challenges. They have powers. However, they also have a secret.

In this world, some students have superhuman abilities they can control. People call these students ‘Supers’. They are the cream of the crop. Others are called ‘Powereds’ because they have superhuman abilities, but they can’t control them.

No one wants to be a Powered because they are lesser beings, a burden rather than a blessing. If someone can identify a method of turning a Powered into an average human, or even a super, they will change everything.
