Two best-selling authors from this area will visit the Redmond Borders for a discussion and signing today. Amanda Quick, author of a string of New York Times bestsellers, presents her latest book, The Third Circle. Stella Cameron, prize-winning author of more than 60 novels, presents the gritty A Marked Man.
The readings will be at 2 p.m. at Borders at Redmond Town Center, 16549 N.E. 74th St.
Author of a string of New York Times bestsellers, Krentz uses three different pen names for each of her three “worlds.” As Jayne Ann Krentz (her married name) she writes contemporary romantic-suspense. She uses Amanda Quick for her novels of historical romantic-suspense. Jayne Castle (her birth name) is reserved for her stories of futureistic/paranormal romantic-suspense.
“I am often asked why I use a variety of pen names,” she says. “The answer is that this way readers always know which of my three worlds they will be entering when they pick up one of my books.”
She is married and lives with her husband, Frank, in Seattle.
Cameron is the recipient of the Pacific Northwest Award for Literary Achievement. English by birth, she now lives in Kirkland.
