Todd Ritter Books & Biography


Todd Ritter was born in rural Pennsylvania to a bank teller mother and a father who dabbled in taxidermy. He grew up among Bambi-esque forests and wide-open fields straight out of the cropduster scene from North by Northwest. Appropriately, his two biggest influences are Walt Disney and Alfred Hitchcock.

A journalist for more than 15 years, he began his career as a film critic while attending Penn State University. Currently, he works at The Star-Ledger, New Jersey's largest daily newspaper. In the interim, he has interviewed celebrities, covered police standoffs and, yes, even written and edited obituaries.

He is currently working on his second Kat Campbell mystery, BAD MOON.
