About the Author

Jessica Ferri started her career in publishing at FSG. Since 2009, she's been a freelance writer and her work has been published by The New Yorker's Page Turner Blog, The Economist, NPR, Yahoo!, Bustle, Time Out New York, The Lineup, The Barnes and Noble Review, and The Daily Beast, where she is a regular contributor on books. Jessica has always harbored a passion for the macabre, whether it be horror movies, cemeteries, true crime, haunted histories, Charles Addams, the list goes on. She launched Silent Cities (silent_._cities) as a travelogue through Instagram, where she chronicled the incredible cemeteries she'd visit along with their unique and largely forgotten stories. The project immediately garnered the interest of a niche but very dedicated community of people who are fascinated by cemeteries and the secrets they hold.
