Before I had the privilege of calling Jayne Ann Krentz my friend, I used her as my invisible mentor. She guided me through my long journey to publication. I even used her fabulous book Dangerous Men and Adventurous Women: Romance Writers on the Appeal of Romance for the basis of a paper I did in college (got an A!). From Jayne I learned the value of finding one’s core story and keeping one’s sense of humor.
Here’s a brief conversation she never knew we had.
Q. Jayne, do you really think I can make it as a writer?
A. ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY.
A. Yes,TRUST ME.
