5 thoughts on “Events”

  1. Can you please come to Barnes and Noble at Wiregrass in Tampa, Florida? I have read every book( except Capturing the Devil) and own all three. It would mean the world to me if I could meet you in person. Who knows, we could find out that we’re related. I love you and your books and I hope Cressworth continues to grow in love, trust, and beauty. I admire you for creating murder mysteries based on actual events in history, and for the fact that they took place in the Victorian Era, I didn’t know how gruesome the Ripper murders were, and I didn’t know there was a strigoi hunt in Romania. I have learned from reading your books and even though my parents claim your books are too gory for a 14(15 in eleven months) to be reading, they say that I’m going to scare somebody one day laughing at the gory jokes but your work has inspired me to be my very best, and I look up to you and your books, I can relate to Audrey Rose on a personal level because I’ve never really fit in with other girls, gossiping, giggling over boys, etc. I’ve been more of a tomboy and have been interested in forensics for a long time and when I read the first paragraph of Stalking Jack the Ripper I was instantly intrigued. If you can’t come to Florida, I understand your reasoning(Too hot). Thanks a ton Kerri. ❤️
    With a ton of admiration,
