About Daleen Berry
Daleen Berry (1963- ) is a New York Times best-selling author who was born in San Jose, California. Her parents kidnapped her and forced her to grow up instead in rural Preston County and in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. But they let her have all the cats she wanted, so she was happy. When she isn’t writing, she’s reading. Since 1988 she has been an award-winning print journalist, columnist and editor who recently crossed over to write for online publications such as The Daily Beast, xoJane and Huffington Post. Sister of Silence, a memoir, is her first book. Since then she has written six other books, including the New York Times bestseller The Savage Murder of Skylar Neese, Pretty Little Killers, Cheatin’ Ain’t Easy, Tales of the Vintage Berry Wine Gang, and Shatter the Silence, the sequel to Sister of Silence.
