Best Author

J.A. Jance

Times bestselling author and a UA alumna (go Wildcats!), but she’s also an absolute icon. A creative writing professor once told her that women should be teachers or nurses, not writers. Her first husband told her he was the only writer allowed in the family. And, when she divorced that guy and had to support her two children, she wrote her first three books between 4 and 7 a.m. before work. And if you think THAT story is interesting, wait until you read her novels!
