Jennifer Berg

Jennifer Berg is a historical mystery writer whose novels take place in and around the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s. She grew up on one of the smaller peninsulas of Puget Sound and studied History and European Studies at the University of Washington.

She loves strong female (and male) protagonists, colorful characters, a powerful sense of place, and of course, plots that are challenging — but not impossible — to solve. Level Best Books will begin releasing the first three titles of the Elliott Bay Mystery series in 2021 with The Charlatan Murders.

Jennifer is a member of Sisters in Crime, the Authors Guild, and a board member of the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America. She attends multiple author and book events each year and one of her short stories was selected for California Schemin’—Bouchercon Anthology 2020

Jennifer currently lives in San Diego where she is working on the next book for the Elliott Bay Mysteries and a new whodunit series set in the 1940s.
