Jess Armstrong

Jess Armstrong's debut novel THE CURSE OF PENRYTH HALL won the Mystery Writers of America/Minotaur First Crime Novel in 2022. She has a masters degree in American History but prefers writing about imaginary people to the real thing. Jess lives in New Orleans with her historian husband, two sons, speckled dog, and the world's most pampered school fair goldfish. When she's not writing her next book, she's probably thinking about cheese, baking, tweeting or some combination of the above.
