Our Editorial Policy

Every topic we cover is selected by our editors, regardless of media affiliation. If our parent company or one of our partners in crime has a story they know you’d love to read, you’ll see it marked as sponsored—no funny business. 

Our Team

Catherine Phelan, Director of Content Strategy

Catherine has been writing and editing for the web since moving to New York City. Her first memory is of realizing that C A T meant cat—and she hasn’t stopped reading since. Recently, Catherine has been making her way through the classic mystery novels of Agatha Christie.

Lisa Quigley, Senior Editor

An author herself, Lisa has long been a lover of all things strange, spooky, and macabre. In addition to her duties at the helm of Murder & Mayhem, she's the co-host of the award-winning horror podcast Ladies of the Fright. If she's not reading a cozy mystery or a twisty thriller, she's probably hiking, camping, cross-stitching, listening to podcasts, cuddling her two kids, drinking craft beer, or binging the latest popular TV show.

Kelsey McConnell, Assistant Editor

Dipping a toe into all forms of media, Kelsey McConnell received her bachelor’s degree in Film and Television Production from San Diego State University, as well as an MFA in Musical Theatre Writing from NYU. She got her start in the online editorial world by reviewing and analyzing the social impact of comic books. While an avid reader and writer in her downtime, she’s also a big movie buff and proud dog mom.

Jennifer Jackson, Founder

A lover of all things digital, Jennifer has been editing and writing for websites and reading ebooks for the better part of a decade. She checks Goodreads every morning for new book recommendations, and she’s recently discovered a love of British murder mystery TV series which she plans to investigate further.
