Jennifer Berg

Jennifer Berg is a mystery writer who focuses on the Pacific Northwest during the 1950s. She grew up on one of the more obscure peninsulas of Puget Sound and studied at the University of Washington where she changed her major several times before settling on history. Jennifer loves strong female (and male) leads, colorful characters, a powerful sense of place, and of course, plots that are challenging — but not impossible — to solve.

Jennifer is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the Authors Guild. Her debut book, The Hatbox Murders, was released by Barking Rain Press in March of 2017. It was quickly followed by an impromptu novelette, The Tugboat Murder. The Elliott Bay Mysteries will continue with The Charlatan Murders in summer of 2019, and after that, The Blue Pearl Murders.

Jennifer lives in San Diego, California where she is currently working on two new series, both of which are also set in the 1950s.
