Synopsis: In this hotly anticipated sequel to the haunting #1 bestseller Stalking Jack the Ripper, bizarre murders are discovered in the castle of Prince Vlad the Impaler, otherwise known as Dracula. Could it be a copycat killer…or has the depraved prince been brought back to life?Following the grief and horror of her discovery of Jack the Ripper’s true identity, Audrey Rose Wadsworth has no choice but to flee London and its memories. Together with the arrogant yet charming Thomas Cresswell, she journeys to the dark heart of Romania, home to one of Europe’s best schools of forensic medicine…and to another notorious killer, Vlad the Impaler, whose thirst for blood became legend.

But her life’s dream is soon tainted by blood-soaked discoveries in the halls of the school’s forbidding castle, and Audrey Rose is compelled to investigate the strangely familiar murders. What she finds brings all her terrifying fears to life once again.



Favorite Villain to Write About: Prince Dracula or Jack the Ripper

Kerri: SO TOUGH! Dracula.


Favorite Setting to Write About: Victorian London or Victorian Romania

Kerri: Victorian Romania. I loved the strigoi folklore.


Character More Intriguing to Write About: Audrey Rose or Thomas Cresswell

Kerri: I love both for different reasons, but I have to stick with my main girl, Audrey Rose.


Characters More Fun to Write About: Heroes or Villains

Kerri: I love a good villain.


Audrey Rose is both into forensic medicine and solving mysteries. Which would you prefer to do yourself: medical examiner/forensic scientist or detective?

Kerri: Forensic scientist. I took criminal justice and sciences courses in college to prep for it, then ended up back in art school. 🙂


Romania is home to some amazing castles, and it sounds like we’ll be visiting some in Hunting Prince Dracula. Would you rather live in a castle or Audrey’s wonderful Victorian home from the first book?

Kerri: I’d like to live in the castle during the summer and London during the winter…does that count?

Who would you not want to get stuck in a dark alleyway more: Aunt Amelia, the strict, Victorian aunt from your series or Dracula, who Vlad the Impaler inspired?

Kerri: Oh gosh…I think I’d take my chances with Vlad the Impaler. Aunt Amelia would be too frightening!


Thanks so much and can’t wait to read this book!!

Thank you, I hope you enjoy it!
