Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began. In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.

She is the #1 NYT and USA Today bestselling author of the Stalking Jack the Ripper series.

Favorite non-writing things:

I believe curry, avocados, vinyl records, handwritten letters, and my 1950s Smith-Corona typewriter are the best things on the planet. EVER. (Aside from my food blog,, that is.) 😀 My favorite quote of all time is: “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club” by Jack London.

  1. Hello twitter friend. I’m loving your blog. I am a fellow writer who understands everything involved from marketing the manuscript to willing publishers to marketing the finished product once it is finally published. It’s a lot of work, but well worth every effort. I have a wordpress blog as well. I also have a blogspot blog which has articles about deeper issues. And, then, I also have a website. Some many places to write, and sometimes so little time.

    1. Hello twitter friend! I’m so glad you stopped by the blog. You are one busy writer with the wordpress, blogspot AND website.

      It’s definitely an exercise in multi-tasking/sanity keeping up with social media/marketing/life oh-and of course writing/re-writing/editing and reading. Phew I’m exhausted just listing it all out 🙂

      Keep up the amazing work and let me know if you’d be interested in doing a guest post. I’m always looking for writers who would like to share how they manage it all.

  2. Kerri, I’m over here getting links for your QT interview on my blog. Seriously, lady, you are one of my favorite people, do you know that? You’ve helped so many other writers with your amazingly inspirational blog! Oooh, that’s totally going in my introduction of your interview. HEE.

  3. Hey Kerri, a friend of mine shared a link toy your blog which I LOVE! I am a total quote queen and love reading all the notes and pics you have shared, they are so wonderful 🙂 Also loving the book suggestions, which I’ll be sure to check out – always need to have a list going. Look forward to reading more and dropping by again soon 😀

  4. Just inspired that you wrote a book (you look young). I am still writing, after having my children. Hoping to finish this year.
