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)

I know it's not the most unique answer in the world, but the noise level at a busy-ish coffee shop is just perfect. I love being around other people who are also working on their laptops; I love a huge cafe au lait and some sort of pastry (almond croissant? cranberry rosemary scone? cinnamon bun? oh the options). As a work-from-home freelancer (even before the pandemic), it's nice to have an excuse to be around people for part of my workday. I wrote most of Confident Women at the same three coffee shops and I can't wait until it's safe to write in coffee shops again. xoxo(less)

Quotes by Tori Telfer  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“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

“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

“Even the most psychopathic woman can realize, when staring death in the eyes, that what she valued, in the end, was life all along.”
Tori Telfer, Lady Killers: Deadly Women Throughout History
