After graduating from law school, New York Times and
USA Today bestselling author Julie James clerked for
the United States Court of Appeals. 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.
Julie’s books have been listed on the American Library
Association’s Reading List for Top Genre Novels,
Booklist's Top 10 Romances of the Year, and have been
featured as one of Cosmopolitan magazine’s Red
Hot Reads. Julie’s novels also were chosen as the Best
Contemporary Romances of 2010, 2011, and 2012 in the All
About Romance Readers’ Polls. Her books have been
translated into fifteen languages and Julie’s seventh
novel, It Happened One Wedding, hits
bookstores and on-line booksellers on May 6th.
Julie James lives with her husband and two children in
Chicago, where she is currently working on her next book.
