PCL MS 160 Jayne Ann Krentz Collection

The Jayne Ann Krentz Collection consists of 1/4 linear feet and contains many of her personal works, publicity materials, articles, an audio script, and personal accomplishments/awards. The collection centers on Jayne Ann Krentz’s mission to mainstream Romance Literature and Popular Fiction, literary forms that historically have been criticized for not being "realistic" and "meaningful." Krentz believes that Romance Literature should be mainstreamed into society as a study of ancient heroic virtues that celebrate the heroic aspects of both feminine and masculine genders and the healing power of love.

The collection was donated by Jayne Ann Krentz through a series of installments in 1997, 1999, and 2002. There are no restrictions placed upon the use of this collection for scholarly purposes. The collection is open for research; however, photocopying of manuscripts must comply with applicable copyright laws.
