Jeri Westerson

Jeri Westerson

Los Angeles native Jeri Westerson is the author of eleven Crispin Guest Medieval Noir novels, a series nominated for 13 national awards from the Agatha to the Shamus. Her first in the series, Veil of Lies was named Editor’s Choice by the Historical Novel Society Review; her third The Demon’s Parchment received a coveted starred review by Library Journal; and her sixth, Shadow of the Alchemist, was named Best of 2013 by Suspense Magazine. Also in 2013, her fifth novel Blood Lance was named one of the “Ten Hot Crime Novels for Colder Days” by Kirkus Reviews.

For her debut paranormal romance series, Booke of the Hidden, Jeri was invited as a paneled author to the fan convention DragonCon, and the book was a finalist for RT Magazine’s Seal of Excellence Award. Publishers Weekly said of it, “Readers sad about the ending of Charlaine Harris’s Midnight, Texas trilogy will find some consolation in Moody Bog.” The second in the series, Deadly Rising, was released in 2018. Her third, Shadows in the Mist was released in May 2019, and the last in the series, The Darkest Gateway, will release in October 2019.

Jeri was featured on two local NPR shows, ‘My Awesome Empire” and “KVCR-Arts.” She has served as president for two terms for the Southern California Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, as vice president for the Los Angeles Chapter of Sisters in Crime, and twice president of the Orange County Chapter of Sisters in Crime. She frequently guest lectures on medieval history at local colleges and museums, and lives in southern California with her home-brewing husband, a complacent desert tortoise, and 40,000 bees.
