About the Author

For as long as she can remember, Carla E. Anderton aspired to become a professional writer, a desire that’s been applauded and supported by her parents, her late grandparents, and nearly every English teacher who’s ever counted her as a student. A voracious reader from an early age, Anderton is fascinated by history and the human condition, and prefers to read/write fiction based on fact. Her pet subjects include European history, specifically England during the Tudor and Victorian eras. A recognized expert on the infamous serial murderer Jack the Ripper, Anderton made the elusive killer the focus of her first novel, The Heart Absent. <br />Anderton earned a Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from California University of Pennsylvania. <br />In addition to writing fiction, Anderton has published poetry, essays, articles and plays and has an extensive background in small press journalism. For nearly five years, she was Editor-in-Chief of a regional monthly newsmagazine, California Focus, and since 1994 has edited/produced a literary arts magazine, Peer Amid, at varying intervals. Currently, Anderton serves as President of the Board of Directors of the Jozart Center for the Arts in California, Pennsylvania where she lives with a tall, talkative computer repairman and her son, a 14-year-old pre-professional ballet dancer. <br />For more information, visit Ms. Anderton’s web site at or find her on Facebook at <br />

review I had Carla Anderton as my Public Speaking professor at community college and instantly liked her. The more we learned about her throughout the class, the more interested I became in reading her novel. 'The Heart Absent' is a book loosely based on Jack the Ripper (Anderton is a ripper-ologist) through the viewpoints of multiple characters. the plot, the character development, and the NEED TO FINISH THE BOOK were all there like I look for in a book. I couldn't put this book down, I finished it in less than day. I anxiously await other novels by Carla Anderton.
