I'm so glad to hear that. (And happy birthday!) Years ago, I read about Erzsebet Bathory and was basically like, "What?? There are female serial killers?!" So I pitched the idea of a column covering female serial killers to a website called The Hairpin, and they accepted it...and eventually that column turned into my book. :)(less)

“A coward’s weapon? Not so much. Poison is the weapon of the emotionless, the sociopathic, the truly cruel.”
Tori Telfer, Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History

“But that’s unfair, because poisoning requires advance planning and the stomach for a drawn-out death scene. You need to look into your victim’s trusting eyes day after day as you slowly snuff out their life.”
Tori Telfer, Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History

“I wonder if female serial killers haven’t been studied extensively because at the end of the day, in our heart of hearts, we don’t consider them worthy antagonists.”
Tori Telfer, Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History
