Profile: An Interview with J. A. Jance

Jessica Agi of the Anchorage Daily News recently interviewed J. A. Jance, author of the bestselling J. P. Beaumont, Joanna Brady, and Brandon Walker mysteries. Her most recent book, Dead Wrong, a Joanna Brady mystery, was recently published by HarperCollins.Dead Wrong by J. A. Jance

When asked how long it takes to write a novel, Jance replied, "It usually takes about six months from beginning to end, depending on what else is going on in my life." She adds, "It's hard work! There's nobody else to do the writing, nobody else to do the promoting, no other body to send on the book tour. Being a full-time writer is sort of like having three full-time jobs."

On the subject of where she comes up with her plots, Jance notes that inspiration varies from place to place, book to book. "Sometimes I find stuff that interests me in newspapers and magazines," she says. "The challenge then is taking that inspiration and figuring out a way to live with it for six months."
