Turning the Tables; Emmy-Winning Investigative Reporter Hank Phillippi Ryan interrogates Jan Burke.
Bio Jan Burke:
Jan Burke is a critically acclaimed and national bestselling author of fourteen books—twelve of crime fiction, a supernatural thriller, and a collection of short stories. She won one of crime fiction's top honors, the Edgar® Award for Best Novel, for Bones.
Jan was born in Texas, but has lived in Southern California most of her life, often in coastal cities—several of which combine to make up fictional Las Piernas, where her series character, reporter Irene Kelly, works and lives.
She attended California State University, Long Beach, and graduated with a degree in history.
She wrote her first book, Goodnight, Irene, in evenings after work and submitted it unsolicited to Simon & Schuster, which published it in 1993. This distinguished house has published her novels since that time.
