Jerri Williams has always been a storyteller and, after serving 26 years as a special agent in the FBI, she has plenty of stories to tell. During most of her Bureau career, she worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money. She has also had the opportunity to work bank robberies and drug investigations. The one thing she knows for sure is, “With a gun, you can steal hundreds. With a pen, you can steal millions.”

Jerri is on a mission to show the public who the FBI is and what the FBI does through her books, podcast, and blog. Using her prior professional experiences with scams and schemers, the novels in her FBI Philadelphia Corruption Squad series – Pay To Play and Greedy Givers – feature a strong but flawed female FBI agent protagonist with a troubled past. In her non-fiction book FBI Myths and Misconceptions: A Manual for Armchair Detectives, she discusses the top 20 clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies, and provides a reality check regarding FBI procedures. Throughout the fun and fact-filled book, she includes quotes from retired agents about how the FBI really works and reviews popular films and fiction featuring FBI characters. Her books are available worldwide, wherever books are sold.

Jerri is the producer and host of FBI Retired Case File Review, a true crime and history podcast where she interviews retired FBI agents about their high-profile cases and careers. With nearly 200 episodes, the podcast has been downloaded more than 3 million times and has listeners from around the world. FBI Retired Case File Review can be accessed on Jerri’s website, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, Pandora, and other popular podcast apps, as well as YouTube.
