Connie Berry, author of the Kate Hamilton Mystery series set in the UK, was born in Wisconsin to second-generation immigrants from Scandinavia and the British Isles. Like her main character, Connie grew up in the world of fine antiques. Her parents, unrepentant antique fanatics, eventually opened a shop, not because they wanted to sell antiques but because they needed a plausible excuse to keep buying them.
Besides writing and her family, Connie loves foreign travel, cute animals, and all things British. She has degrees in English from DePauw University and The Ohio State University. She also studied at the University of Freiburg in southern Germany and St. Clare’s College in Oxford, England.Connie is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and is on the board of her local SinC chapter, Buckeye Crime Writers.
Connie lives in Ohio with her husband, Bob, and adorable dog, Millie.
