About Me

I’m the author of the Winston Breen series of kids’ books: The Puzzling World of Winston Breen, The Potato Chip Puzzles, and The Puzzler’s Mansion. As you might guess, I like puzzles a lot — both solving them and constructing them.

I’m married to Janinne Berlin, and we have two great kids — Alex (14) and Lea (12). We have a 4-year-old border collie named Maggie and a cat named M.J. We all live in Connecticut.

If you’re doing a book report or something and want more biographical detail, there’s an actual encyclopedia entry about me here. (It’s a little outdated, but that’s okay.)

I can be reached at ericberlin@gmail.com.
