This week on Well Read, New York Times best-selling author Jayne Ann Krentz will be speaking with hosts Elisa Jaffe and Mary Anne Gwinn about her most recent romantic suspense novel, When All the Girls Have Gone (2016), released November 29. Her twenty-eighth stand-alone writing under her married name (Krentz writes historical romance as Amanda Quick and futuristic/paranormal romance as Jayne Castle), Krentz’s latest homes in on the disappearance of Jocelyn Pruitt—and the private investigator and suspicious stepsister who unite to find her. In the video clip above, Krentz considers the differences between writing and storytelling. “I don’t think of myself as a writer in the literary sense,” she admits. “I think of myself as telling a story.”
To watch her full conversation with Jaffe and Gwinn, check your public television affiliate’s schedule and World Channel beginning this Friday, January 27.
