About Lynnpd

I am Lynnpd - Lynn Powell Dougherty. I love the HBO show True Blood and the wonderful things it has brought me. It has changed my life.

I grew up in Philadelphia, graduated with a BFA in Painting from The University of the Arts (Formerly Philadelphia College of Art) and served there as it's Registrar for many years as well as working for architecture firms during my career.  I have always been a fan of classic movies and have run a site of my own, classicmoviefavorites.com. Because of a passion I have for film and TV, and because of my interest in the HBO show, True Blood, I hooked up with a group of people who have a similar interest and eventually got even more involved by becoming a Co-Owner of two websites devoted to True Blood, along with Shadaliza, the owner of the sites,The Vault Trueblood-Online.com and AllStephenMoyer.com.

In the winter of 2010, after spending about a year working on the two web sites, I decided that it was time for me to follow my dream and move to California. I quit my job, sold my house and moved to LA (Santa Monica to be exact) in June, 2010. Since I've been here I have met, spent time with, and/or interviewed or written about many of the True Blood cast and crew including (in no particular order):

As I reinvent myself I plan to interview more in the entertainment business. It's like Will Smith said in an interview, "There's no reason to have a Plan B because it distracts from Plan A."

This blog represents a sampling of the events I've covered, reviews I've written, interviews and articles I have done to date.
