Greetings Students.
I am Catherene NightPoe, creator and author of the Vampiric Studies teaching site.

The creation of this site is to better inform and educate the general public as to the real world of today's modern Vampire and the environments in which they and we live.

The Vampiric Studies Web Site was also created so I did not have to personally send out each page to whomever wished to see it and so my online and in person students could have access to the Text Pages when I was not available to answer questions.

On June 13th, 2007 Catherene, your teacher and my beloved wife, passed away after a life long battle with her illness. Her doctors (both human doctors and Night-Timer) had been telling her since the age of 15 that she was dying, but my valiant little Night-Timer proved them all wrong for over 50 years. Her enemies, I'm sure, will be thrilled at the news, just as her friends and students are broken-hearted.

I had promised Catherene I would keep this web site up and running for her. I intend to keep that promise to the best of my ability. And, hopefully, this action on my part will also continue to annoy those aforementioned enemies.

I do not have the patience My Lady had when dealing with endless questions. But, I will try. I will also periodically update this site.

Be finally at peace, my love.

This, our most recent update, is January 2008.

This site was originally published on America Online's web space in 1996. Approximately one year later it was moved the the free hosting service offered by Geocities where it has remained.

2000 -- February, The site was sabotaged and caused to malfunction, the passwords and identity safeguards stolen and changed so it was impossible to change, update or get into to fix problems. Pages malfunctioned, as did graphics. Pages would vanish and not be able to be accessed, it took many months to regain control of the site but we have done so.

In October 2000 the site was recovered and made functional again.

In 2005 a volunteer worked long and hard to mirror this site in Spanish for those of you who have difficulty with English.

I thank you all for attending these online classes.
We hope you enjoy Vampiric Studies.

Teacher Profile:

Note: Due to unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances, much of the personal information on this site has had to be removed for security reasons.

Catherene is a born Nighttimer (see the Nighttimer page on this site for an explanation)

At time of this update, Catherene had been teaching Vampiric Studies on AOL and the Internet for the past 12 years.

Catherene previously taught classes on Thought Projection, Psychic Self Defense, Guided Meditation for many subjects and many Wiccan Subjects.

Catherene was the first, and for nearly three years, the only person to produce and host her own local Cable Television Show dedicated to real Vampires. (The only such show in the world at that time it began)

The Show, called simply 'Vampyres', was carried by satellite to all parts of the world. 'Vampyres' was the feature of many national shows such as 'The Other Side', and 'Strange TV'.


Catherene has, herself, been the subject of national and international documentaries seen in Japan, Spain, Germany, the United States and England such as 'PAGE 9' and featured in England on the famed 'Girlie Show.'

She has made guest appearances on many local, national and news shows such as CNN, ABC, CBS, and national and international television shows such as 'The Other Side', 'Entertainment Tonight', 'TV.COM' and currently is mentioned in Catherine Ramsland's book 'Piercing The Darkness' as well as other such publications.



A brief note about Bandwidth on the GeoCities hosted copy of this site:

The Vampiric Studies web site is hosted on GeoCities which is a service that provides free space for web sites. Because the site is free, GeoCities limits the amount of bandwidth a web site is allowed to use. Bandwidth is used up by the number of people who are looking at the web site. When all the bandwidth is used up, GeoCities will shut down the web site for a few hours (up to a day) and then re-open it again. This is what may be happening if you try to visit the site on GeoCities. If you wait a few hours, or until the next day, the links may be back online.

Because of this problem, I have 'mirrored' the site on a paid hosting service. The link to the home page there is:



We strongly suggest you pay extra attention to the classes which are titled Real Predators and Real Hunters as you read the vampire classes provided on this site.

It may give you some insight you had not thought about before.

As ever,
Catherene NightPoe
