Ella James is a USA Today bestselling author who writes teen and adult romance. She is happily married to a man who knows how to wield a red pen, and together they are raising a feisty two-year-old who will probably grow up believing everyone's parents go to war over the placement of a comma.

Ella's books have been listed on numerous Amazon bestseller lists, including the Movers & Shakers list and the Amazon Top 100; two were listed among Amazon's Top 100 Young Adult Ebooks of 2012.

My new release, Sloth: A Sinful Secrets Novel, made the USA Today bestseller list today.

And here's the thing: I really dislike talking about sales and rankings. Not because they're not important, and not because selling a lot isn't an achievement.

Ella James and 15 other people liked Crystal's review of Big Rock:
Big Rock by Lauren Blakely
"Let me start out by saying that I'm a fan of the male POV in books. I have fun writing them as well as reading them! This book was so much fun. It was sexy, sweet, then got sexier, and even sweeter. Spencer's cocky, yes, but he's also so much more..." Read more of this review »
