Jen by Jolene Sept 2019After starting a career in marketing for a Fortune 500 company in Chicago, frequent corporate relocations sent Jen Sinclair Johnson’s family packing to New England, the Upper Midwest, Nebraska, and back to Illinois. She worked solo as a newspaper stringer and gardening columnist before writing for a women’s magazine and running communications for men’s pro racquetball. Changing territories fueled her work, but living where Abraham Lincoln practiced prairie law inspired a love of history. Jen is writing her first novel, a modern day mystery with ties to Abraham Lincoln’s pre-presidential history.

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 has also produced the Old House Society’s newsletter. Contact her at Jen@JenSinclairJohnson.com.
