January Speaker: Author Shirley Jump, Take Your Book from Good to Sold

Shirley Jump

At our meeting on January 15th, author Shirley Jump will present the topic “Take Your Book from Good to Sold.” The meeting begins at 10am in the Napoleon room at the east bank branch of the Jefferson Parish Library. Visitors are welcome to see what SOLA has to offer.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shirley Jump spends her days writing women’s fiction and romantic comedies (Vegas Pregnancy Surprise, July 2010) to feed her shoe addiction and avoid cleaning the toilets. As AJ Whitten (www.ajwhitten.com), she also writes horror young adult novels for Houghton Mifflin’s Graphia imprint with her daughter (The Well, September 2009). She cleverly finds writing time by feeding her kids junk food, allowing them to dress in the clothes they find on the floor and encouraging the dogs to double as vacuum cleaners.
