Amanda Quick is the pen name New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz uses for her historical romantic-suspense novels. She writes contemporary romantic-suspense titles as Krentz (her married name) and futuristic/paranormal romantic suspense as Jayne Castle (her birth name).

Why does she use three different names for her books? “This way readers always know which of my three worlds they will be entering when they pick up one of my books,” she says.

Krentz earned her Bachelor’s degree in History from the University of California at Santa Cruz and went on to obtain a Masters degree in Library Science from San Jose State University in California. She worked as a librarian in both academic and corporate libraries before she began writing full time.

She currently resides in Seattle with her husband, Frank. Visit her home on the Web at JayneAnnKrentz.com or like her on Facebook.
