I'm a freelance writer whose mother used to introduce her as "This is my daughter Erica, the expert in practically everything." I guess that's how I wound up writing about subjects as diverse as divorce and Jewish vampires (not to speak of dentistry, fat fashions and psychics) He's History You're Not was a case of making lemonade out of lemons. I turned a really nasty divorce into a book that would help other older women who had gone through divorces--nasty or not. My motto: Writing well is the best revenge.Interview With a Jewish Vampire was originally meant to be a humor piece but an agent suggested I turn it into a book. I intially said, "Oh no, that's impossible." I couldn't think of a way to write a whole book about a Jewish vampire. But I was egged on by my writer's critique group, who loved the idea and waited breathlessly to hear the latest installment of the adventures of Rhoda and Sheldon every week. I plan a series about them. The next installment will be: "True Kosher Blood," about Rhoda and Sheldon moving to the Catskills.Brought up by Jewish parents who spoke Yiddish but avoided religion, I got my Jewish education at the Woodstock Jewish Congregation which welcomes Jews from all backgrounds, from atheist to Orthodox. I hope they'll let me rejoin next year after reading Interview With a Jewish Vampire. My website is www.ericamanfred.com

This was a fun demonic ride! It's like Amityville light with some new age stuff. And by new age I don't mean flowing ro...

Did not finish. this just didn't grab me. The female was whiny and not very likable in my opinion. I appreciate the attempt, but it just didn't do anything for me.

Rhoda is 41 years old, overweight, Jewish and looking for a Jewish man to settle down with after her marriage broke up and she’s had a series of poor relationships since then. Just her luck that the first man who seems interested isn’t a man at all – he’s a vampire. But at least he’s Jewish. And he’...
