Mystery Writer J.A. Jance Cranks Out The Books

Does the name J.P. Beaumont mean anything to you?  How about Ali Reynolds?  Joanna Brady?  If none of those names mean anything, you probably don't read mystery novels, at least the novels of J.A. Jance. 

To call her a prolific author is putting it mildly... between her three series of murder mysteries and novellas, she's cranked out roughly 60 books. 

One of them takes place at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (Failure to Appear).  The author is on tour supporting her latest work, Duel to the Death.  We catch up to her in Redding.
