She's often perceived as a goth/teen angst writer by the uneducated. There is nothing necessarily "goth" about her.
Her Characters usually are bisexual. Her characters feel a love for both sexes. She went back to Catholicism after her husband, Stan Rice (Poet)died of cancer. She's been writing books about the life and journey of Jesus Christ, and she's vowed never to return to writing books worth reading.
Me: Blood and Gold, by Anne Rice
Idiot: OH EM GEE1!1111 GOTH!
Me: **** you.
Unfortunately, she hates her fans. Anne Rice is the terrorist of fanfiction; she has taken legal actions against Vampire Chronicles fanfiction writers simply because she doesn't like what the fanbase does to her characters. Of course, this opinion extends beyond fanfiction. The woman simply does not care what you think. She will write and do as she wishes, because being a famous writer gives her privileges beyond those of mortal humans. This apparently includes cyberstalking and cyberbullying teenagers.
Do you love Anne Rice? Good for you! But guess what? She hates you.
