J.A. Jance will discuss her latest book, “Credible Threat,” with Sno-Isle Libraries customers on Sept. 17.

“I’m thrilled to have another opportunity to bring Jance and readers together,” Byars said. “I’ve seen firsthand the magic that happens when she shares space with fans, budding authors, and even folks who may not yet be familiar with her. It’s an experience not to be missed.” 

With over 21 million copies of her books in print over a career spanning four decades, Jance was honored with the Strand Magazine Lifetime Achievement Award in 2018 as “one of the finest practitioners of the suspenseful thriller.”  

In addition to her Ali Reynolds series, Jance is author of the J.P. Beaumont series, the Joanna Brady series, a series of Southwestern thrillers featuring the Walker family and more. She was born in South Dakota and grew up in Bisbee, Ariz. She lives in Seattle with her husband and dachshunds, Jojo and Mary.
