Headshot of Mysti Berry

Mysti works in San Francisco at the best software shop in town, and lives in a forgotten corner of The City with her husband, graphic novelist Dale Berry, and the maximum number of black rescue cats their vet recommends for a small house, plus one wee extra kitty.

An active member of MWA, Sisters in Crime, ITW, and the Public Safety Writers Association, Mysti is once again polishing her financial fraud murder mystery to keep up with real life. She speaks often at writers conferences, teaches workshops, and tweets far too often for her own mental health.

With an MFA in Writing from University of San Francisco and a BA in Linguistics from UC Santa Cruz, Mysti loves to talk with people about story structure, language, film noir, and the resistance, not always in that order.
