DV Berkom is the USA Today bestselling author of two action-packed thriller series featuring strong female leads: Leine Basso and Kate Jones. Her love of creating resilient, kick-ass women characters stems from a life long addiction to spy novels, mysteries, and thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent in those pages.
Growing up in the Midwest, DV earned her BA in political science and promptly moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and many adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked.
