J.A. Jance is the New York Times bestselling author of the J. P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, the Ali Reynolds series, and five interrelated thrillers about the Walker family, as well as a volume of poetry. Her books have more than 23 million copies in print.

Jance was born in South Dakota and grew up in Bisbee, Arizona. She was a voracious reader who knew she wanted to be a writer from the moment she read her first Wizard of Oz book in second grade. Always drawn to mysteries, from Nancy Drew right through John D. McDonald's Travis Magee, it was only natural that when she tried her hand at writing her first book, it would be a mystery as well.

With a passion for storytelling, Jance draws audiences in with her motivating and inspiring keynotes. From libraries to writers’ conferences to literary festivals, Jance aims with attendees by allowing them to immerse themselves in her stories.

Jance lives with her husband in Seattle, Washington, and Tucson, Arizona
