Jayne Ann KrentzJayne Ann Krentz was born in 1948 in Cobb, California. She earned a bachelors degree in History from the University of California at Santa Cruz and a masters degree in Library Science from San Jose State University.

In the past, Krentz has worked as a librarian in both academic and corporate settings, but she now writes full time. she has written under numerous different pen names, including Jayne Taylor, Jayne Bentley, Stephanie James, Amanda Glass, Amanda Quirk, Jayne Castle (her maiden name), and her married name. These days, however, she prefers the latter three, using Jayne Ann Krentz for contemporary romantic suspense, Jayne Castle for futuristic/paranormal romantic suspense, and Amanda Quirk for historical romantic suspense.

Krentz has published over 120 novels, with a quarter of them landing squarely on the New York Times bestseller list. Besides fiction, she also contributes to and is the editor of a non-fiction essay collection, Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of the Romance.
