Jeff Menapace

A native of the Philadelphia area, Jeff has published multiple works in both fiction and nonfiction. In 2011, he was the recipient of the Red Adept Reviews Indie Award for Horror. Jeff’s debut novel, Bad Games became a #1 Kindle bestseller that spawned two acclaimed sequels, and now all three books in the trilogy have been optioned for feature films and translated for foreign audiences. His other novels, along with his award-winning short works, have also received international acclaim and are eagerly waiting to give you plenty of sleepless nights.

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 someday, and hates spiders. He currently lives in Pennsylvania with his wife Kelly and their cats Sammy and Bear. Be sure to visit his website at or his Facebook page at
