About this author

New York Times bestselling author Julie James 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. Her books have been translated into sixteen languages and Julie’s new novel, IT HAPPENED ONE WEDDING, hits bookstores on May 6.

Julie James lives with her husband and two children in Chicago, where she is working on her next novel.

Thanks, Faifaiz! So glad you enjoyed the FBI/U.S. Attorney series! All of my currently-available books have been, or will be, translated into Thai. Although it's by two different publishers, so that's a little confusing. More info can be found at the international editions page on my website: http://juliejames.com/books/internati...

Hope that helps!

message 85: by Julie

Julie James Hi Tai! So glad to hear you enjoyed the books, and that they helped take away some stress. As an author, that's one of the best compliments I can get. : )

Re: Sam (yep, he's the African American agent with the designer suits): I don't have anything currently in the works for him, but I am kicking around some ideas. The problem for me as a writer, however, is that once I mentally put a character in the "funny sidekick" role, I have a hard time seeing them in a lead role. I have the same problem with Jeremy, Jason's best friend in Just the Sexiest Man Alive--lots of readers have asked whether I'll write his book, and I've mused over ideas, but nothing's grabbed me yet. Same with Tyler in Practice Makes Perfect and Huxley in A Lot Like Love.

BUT... I never say never. I've given some thought to possibly doing a novella for Sam and I continue to muse over ideas. In the meantime, people should assume that he's happily got something going on with Rae after their Meet Cute in About That Night. : )


Taiyesha-Duchess of Indiana Hi Julie! I'm obsessed with all of your books. They are so good and help me take the stress of nursing school of my shoulders! You're my favorite contemporary romance author out there! I can't wait for your next book :] I was wondering though, is Sam , who if i'm correct is the stylish African American Agent, going to get a book? I would DIE if he did. None of my favorite authors have ever written a book with a African American protagonist :)

p.s. thanks for the signed copy of your book

I cracked up reading "About That Night" where Rylann jokes about forgetting about books where you don't have to highlight or outline in the margins. When I do have time for reading books for pleasure, they're always yours. Thanks for writing such great, strong heroines to relate to!
