After graduating from law school, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie James clerked for the United States Court of Appeals in Jacksonville, Florida. She then practiced law with one of the nation’s largest firms for several years until she began writing screenplays. After Hollywood producers optioned two of her scripts, she decided to leave the practice of law to write full-time.
In 2011, Julie was named “Romance’s New It Girl” by RT Book Reviews magazine and listed on the American Library Association’s Reading List for Top Genre Novels. She is the author of a Booklist Top 10 Romance of the Year and one of Cosmopolitan magazine’s Red Hot Reads. Julie’s novels also were chosen as the Best Contemporary Romances in the 2011 and 2012 All About Romance Readers’ Poll.
Julie James lives with her husband and two children in Chicago, where she is currently working on her next novel.
