Jeff Menapace

Goodreads Author

September 04, 1973




Member Since
April 2011


A native of the Philadelphia area, Jeff has published multiple works in both fiction and non-fiction. In 2011 he was the recipient of the Red Adept Reviews Indie Award for Horror.

In March of 2014, his novel BAD GAMES was a #1 Kindle bestseller and is now being optioned as a feature film.

Free time for Jeff is spent watching horror movies, The Three Stooges, and mixed martial arts. He loves steak and more steak, thinks the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the greatest movie ever, wants to pet a lion some day, and hates spiders.

CALEB is here!

Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered Caleb! It should be on your Kindle right now or in your mailbox tomorrow, although I've heard some paperbacks were received yesterday! If you missed the release party on Facebook, the video will still be available on my FB page. Feel free to send questions on my FB page and connect with me on Twitter and/or IG, too.

Thanks again!

Caleb by Jeff Menapace
"Loved this so much! Caleb has been through so much from such a young age it’s little wonder he’s a little f*cked up. Yet he still has his morals and only goes after those who he thinks deserves it. Think of a mix between Dexter and John Wick and that" Read more of this review »

I have been a fan since Bad Games, and have yet been disappointed with any of his books. When you can read a book and be horrified, grossed out and laugh, that's a great book! Once again, great writing and looking forward to th" Read more of this review »
