About this author

JA Konrath writes the occasionally amusing and often frightening Lt. Jacqueline "Jack" Daniels thrillers, available in hardcover and paperback from Hyperion and as a spoken word from Brilliance Audio.

The books are a mixture of the humor of Janet Evanovich, Carl Hiaasen, Christopher Moore, but with the scares of James Patterson, Thomas Harris, Patricia Cornwell.

Basically, JA rips off everybody.

In order, they are:

WHISKEY SOUR
BLOODY MARY
RUSTY NAIL
DIRTY MARTINI
FUZZY NAVEL
CHERRY BOMB

Joe also has a bunch of free short stories, and several free ebook novels, on his website.

He writes the blog A NEWBIES GUIDE TO PUBLISHING.

Joe edited the hitman anthology THESE GUNS FOR HIRE.

He wrote two horror novels under the name Jack Kilborn. They are:

AFRAID
TRAP

Mark Tufo Hi Joe, I just wanted to say Thank You I have just found out that my books are being illegally downloaded and I was pretty much losing sleep until I came across your article regarding piracy. Now I'm not saying that I'm okay with it but at least my ulcer has stopped its bubbling protest!

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, J.A. It's greatly appreciated. If you love a good mystery, and you have either a Kindle, Nook or iBooks, I encourage you to try a sample of my first novel. It's called FORBIDDEN STEPS and it's getting raves and 5 stars across the board. Check out what folks are saying by clicking on the link below, then scroll downward.

Rai Hey Joe,

Cheers,

CaliGirlRae Thanks for the GR friendship invite, JA! It's an honor to be on your list as I'm a big fan of your blog! Hope you have an excellent weekend. :-D


message 12: by Jan (last edited Oct 30, 2009 11:06AM)

Jan I adore Jack Daniels and am not only glad you created her but that I found this series. I'm originally from DuPage County -- one son lives in Schaumburg and another in Hoffman Estates so I especially appreciate the setting you've made for Jack and her uproarious friends and family. I might also mention Afraid is THE scariest book I've ever read and I'm old, so I should know!

I'm hoping you'll have Origin, Disturb and The List in paperback form sometime soon as I've not yet convinced hubby I need a Kindle!

Terry Odell Hi, and thanks for adding me to your vast list of friends. If you're having trouble singling me out, I was the poor soul who had to follow you at the Breakfast Mixer at RT. I hope you'll check out my books.

SteffieStar Hi J.A. Wanted to let you know that you are a choice in a poll question on Novel Ladies:

Which author would you most like to spend the evening with if given the chance?

1. Charlaine Harris
2. J.A Konrath
3. Allison Brennan
4. Janet Evanovich
5. Stephen King

This is what I posted after picking you!! :-)

I just had to pick J.A. Konrath!! We have E-mailed each other...but that it not the same as meeting in Person!! I LOVE the Charector "Jack Daniels" so much!

It's kind of funny I was thinking Stephen King, but then thought...No he would be a little itimadating and what would I say besides "I Love your Books"!

But with J.A. Konrath, I get a feeling that he is just like us....Loves to Read and Loves to Write! He writes like all us mere mortals who do not Write, Live!! Does that make sense?!

Friends in Reading!

Thanks for adding me.


Jeannie Faulkner Barber Hi J.A., I mean to tell you, back in the day...ahem, when I was single, my best friend and I would order a Fuzzy Up...somewhat of a spin off of a "Fuzzy Navel"...just a little trivia for the day. Also, I'd like to invite you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too!
Thanks,
Jeannie



Rowena Hello, J.A.

Thank you for the friendship. I adore your titles, especially Fuzzy Navel and the upcoming Cherry Bomb!

Your friend,
Rowena Cherry
