After starting her marketing career in a Fortune 500 company near Chicago, frequent corporate relocations sent Jen Sinclair Johnson’s family packing to New England, the Upper Midwest, and Nebraska before returning to Illinois. She left corporate life to freelance as a newspaper stringer, magazine writer, gardening columnist, and communications director for a professional sports league. Changing territories fueled her work, but living where Abraham Lincoln practiced prairie law while learning about her family’s U.S. immigration in the 1640s inspired her first novel, a contemporary mystery with ties to Abraham Lincoln’s history.
Jen Sinclair Johnson co-chairs the Publicity/Media committee for the Sisters in Crime Chicagoland Chapter and is a member of the Mystery Writers of America, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, McLean County Museum of History, and the Daughters of the American Revolution.
