American writer Steve Berry was born and raised in Georgia, graduating from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. History lies at the heart of every Steve Berry novel. It’s his passion. Since 2009 Steve and his wife Elizabeth have crossed the country to save endangered historic treasures, raising money via lectures, receptions, galas, luncheons, dinners and their popular writers’ workshops.

Davis Distinguished Author Award, the Barnes & Noble Writers for Writers Award given by Poets & Writers, the Anne Frank Human Writes Award, and the Silver Bullet, bestowed by International Thriller Writers for his philanthropic work.
