Jami Ober Gan

"The Lost and Found" is Jami Gan's debut novel. While Gan has "doodled" with words most of her life, this is her first fictional story that she has written. Gan is a retired deaf education teacher and has lived in Tucson most of her life. In college, Gan met a woman with dissociative identity disorder and found her to be both fascinating and inspiring. Meeting her was the seed that grew into "The Lost and Found." Gan enjoys doing book readings and discussions at book clubs and is still amazed when she walks in and sees a group of people all holding her book. While this venture is one of her greatest accomplishments, she has three grown children that are her true masterpieces.
