It may come as a shock, but the John J. Nance you’ve come to know as America’s preeminent broadcast Aviation Analyst on ABC World News and Good Morning America happens to be the very same John J. Nance who’s built such a large worldwide following as the New York Times Best-Selling author of those celebrated aviation-based thrillers that have been causing fans so many sleepless nights over the past decade.
John J. Nance combines lightning-paced, intelligent fiction with realistic characters you can’t forget. As the Seattle Times said in 1996, “John Nance simply has no peers in this genre.” His novel Blackout was named “one of the best books of 2000” by the Los Angeles Times. Earlier worldwide successes include The New York Times’ best-selling Pandora's Clock, Medusa's Child, and The Last Hostage. In addition to being best-sellers, Pandora's Clock and Medusa's Child have both been adapted into mini-series for network television.
His 19th and latest book, Why Hospitals Should Fly is a substantial departure from mainstream fiction yet a very important work for the medical world and all who use its services. In 2009 it won the prestigious Book of the Year award from the American College of Healthcare Executives.
