Three Authors in One

Did you know that Jayne Ann Krentz, Amanda Quick and Jayne Castle are the same author? One woman writes under those three different names. According to her official website she does it so, “readers always know which of my three worlds they will be entering when they pick up one of my books.”

Jayne Ann Krentz is her married name and is reserved for her contemporary romantic suspense.

Amanda Quick is a pseudonym used for historical romantic suspense. Quick’s newest work, the Mystery Woman, is coming in April 2013.

mysterywoman

Jayne Castle is her birth name that she uses for futuristic/paranormal romantic suspense.

Krentz/Quick/Castle has also written non-fiction works on the impact of the romance genre. Before writing full-time, Krentz worked as a librarian, but her libraries probably didn’t carry too many romances. She was a part of the academic and corporate library world.

Jayne on romance: “The romance genre is the only genre where readers are guaranteed novels that place the heroine at the heart of the story. These are books that celebrate women’s heroic virtues and values: courage, honor, determination and a belief in the healing power of love.”
