Colleen Houck’s New York Times bestselling Tiger’s Curse series has received national praise with the fourth book, Tiger’s Destiny, debuting September 2012.

Formerly a student at the University of Arizona, she has worked as a nationally certified American Sign Language interpreter for seventeen years.
New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance’s path to publication has been a lifetime endeavor. Disinterested editors, a husband who declared he was the only writer in the family, and even a creative writing professor who refused to allow women into his program all stood in J. A. Jance’s way. But none of it stopped her from going on to publish 24 books, and she continues writing today. Of writing, she says: “One of the wonderful things about being a writer is that everything–even the bad stuff–is usable. The eighteen years I spent while married to an alcoholic have helped shape the experience and character of Detective J. P. Beaumont. My experiences as a single parent have gone into the background for Joanna Brady–including her first tentative steps toward a new life after the devastation of losing her husband in Desert Heat. ﾠ And then there’s the evil creative writing professor in Hour of the Hunter and Kiss of the Bees, but that’s another story.”
November 7, 14, 21 & 28 (Sa), 1-3 p.m.
