Rose Sinister is Lisa Andresen, a professional tour guide in New Orleans, specializing in ghost, vampire, and mystery-themed walking tours of the historic French Quarter.
A lifelong storyteller, her passion for the strange and macabre began at a young age, and she’s been reading about vampires, ghosts, and other creatures of the night for more than 30 years.
“You can easily imagine she’s been telling these stories for centuries.”
With an academic background in Anthropology and Theater Arts, Rose finds her work both as a tour guide and podcaster the perfect marriage of her specializations, and this gives a unique, immersive perspective to the tales she weaves for spellbound tourists from around the world. You can easily imagine she’s been telling these stories for centuries.
Originally from Los Angeles California, Rose moved to New Orleans one year after hurricane Katrina, and only plans to leave “when her bloated corpse floats out.” She lives in an historic neighborhood with her husband, a black cat, and two dogs- wolfish husky, and a decidedly not-goth Corgi mix.

Human beings have always told monster stories- to illuminate the dark, to make sense of the incomprehensible, to seek justice in an unjust world. And none of humanity’s monsters are more like us, than vampires.
