After graduating from law school, New York Times 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, which have been translated into sixteen languages, 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. Her next novel, SUDDENLY ONE SUMMER, will be available on June 2.
Julie lives with her husband and two children in Chicago, where she is currently working on her next book.
