New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance, hailed as the undisputed mistress of the mystery novel, talks to Authorlink about her newest novel, Queen of the Night, a multilayered thriller set in the breathtaking Arizona desert that connects and devastates three separate families.
With more than 15 million copies of her books in print, Jance talks about her lifelong dream of becoming an author and of how she overcame many stumbling blocks to become successful.
In our discussion, Jance talks about having "fired" her first book instead of her agent, and went on to write nine more books before returning to the first. She reveals the story behind what she calls her "literary revenge" and gives some practical advice for writers trying to break into publishing.
Queen of the Night, dedicated to the late Tony Hillerman, is Jance's brilliant fourth suspense novel and features former homicide detective Brandon Walker and his wife, novelist Diana Ladd, whom we met in Hour of the Hunter, terrorized in Kiss of the Bees, and last seen in Day of the Dead.
Her novels include the Joanna Brady Series, J.P. Beaumont Series, Ali Reynolds novels, and now four thrillers.
