Jennifer Berg

Jennifer Berg is an American 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) leads, colorful characters, a powerful sense of place, and of course, plots that are challenging — but not impossible — to solve. Her debut book, The Hatbox Murders, was first released by Barking Rain Press in 2017. Level Best Books will begin releasing 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. She currently lives in San Diego, California where she is working on two new series, which are also set in the 1950s.
