After starting a career in marketing for a Fortune 500 company in Chicago, Jen Sinclair Johnson went solo as a newspaper stringer and gardening columnist before writing magazine articles and running communications for men’s pro racquetball. Frequent corporate relocations sent her family packing to New England, the Upper Midwest, Nebraska, and back to Illinois.

Changing territories fueled her work, but living where Abraham Lincoln practiced prairie law inspired contemporary mysteries that weave in history. Jen is writing her first novel, a contemporary mystery that ties back to Abraham Lincoln’s history in Central Illinois.

Jen Sinclair Johnson is a board member of Sisters in Crime Chicagoland, and a member of the Mystery Writers of America, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, and McLean County Museum of History. She also produces the Old House Society newsletter. Contact her at Jen@JenSinclairJohnson.com.
