“So many of our Aljoya Mercer Island residents are avid J.A. Jance enthusiasts and enjoy her connection to Seattle,” says Aljoya Mercer Island Executive Director, Marla Becker. “From mystery to poetry, J.A. Jance books are a great topic of conversation and keep us excited to read.”
Jance is a long time Seattle resident. She has published fifty books in four different series—Ali Reynolds, J.P. Beaumont, Joanna Brady, and the Walker Family, along with a volume of poetry. More than 20 million copies of her mystery and poetry books are in print worldwide.
Although Jance was once denied entry into a university level Creative Writing course, she did not let that stop her from living her dream and becoming a writer. She published her first book in 1982. Jance will talk about her humble beginnings in writer’s circles, and why she knew she could write a whole book, when she speaks at Aljoya on March 30.
