Jeanine Berry

Words are Jeanine Berry’s passion. Perhaps it is genetic since she comes from a family of writers.

An avid reader all her life, she started scratching pen to paper at an early age. Once she learned to type, she kept her family awake late at night with the clicking of keys. Eventually, she left home, studied English and journalism and went on to a career as a journalist.

The hard-charging, deadline-driven world of journalism left her little time for her own writing. But the desire to put her fantasy worlds down on paper in novel form never left her.

When the Internet was born, she was hooked by the idea of ebooks. She dug out one of her old manuscripts from long ago, polished it up and sent it in to an epublisher. Her creative writing career was soon launched. She is now the author of three fantasy novels, and three SF novels, as well as a contributor to two anthologies. Dayspring Destiny, the final book of her Dayspring series, took the 2004 Eppie for best fantasy novel.

Jeanine lives in the Chicago area with her husband and two very spoiled Australian Silky Terriers.
