Steve Berry (born in 1955) is an American author, professor and former attorney currently living in St. Augustine, Florida.[1] He is a graduate of Mercer University's Walter F. George School of Law.

Steve Berry first appeared in print with his historical thrillers The Amber Room and The Romanov Prophecy in 2003 and 2004. A practicing attorney (at the time), Berry had been writing since 1990, and it took him 12 years and 85 rejections (over five different editions) to finally sell a manuscript to Ballantine Books.[1] Berry credits the nuns who taught him in Catholic school with instilling the discipline needed both to craft a novel and to find a publisher.

Today, Berry's novels have earned spots on The New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and BookSense bestseller lists. He has more than 14 million books in print, which have been translated into 40 languages and sold in 51 countries.[2] Berry focuses much of his time on writing or planning new novels, teaching the concepts of writing to audiences throughout the world, golfing or spending time on the beach.[1]

He and his wife, Elizabeth, have founded History Matters, a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding the preservation of heritage.[2]
