About this author

#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot. She displayed a decided lack of knowledge about baseball, country music, and plush toys, but she is proud to say that she aced all things British and literary, answered all of her history and geography questions correctly, and knew that there was a Da Vinci long before there was a code.

In 2010, Ms Quinn won her third RITA Award in four years and was the thirteenth author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. Her books have been translated into twenty-eight languages,...more

Julia Quinn added a status update: My current favorite line from my work-in-progress:

“Die!” the unicorn shrieked. “Die! Die! Die!”

It's always a good thing when you can work a murderous unicorn into a historical romance.

“You always get more respect when you don't have a happy ending.”
Julia Quinn

“Love's about finding the one person who makes your heart complete. Who makes you a better person than you ever dreamed you could be. Its about looking in the eyes of your wife and knowing all the way to your bones that she's simply the best person you've ever known.”
Julia Quinn, The Viscount Who Loved Me

Rika - (The Unpretentious Reader) I was searching for Miss Butterworth and the Mad Baron, I was devastated to realize it doesn't really exist

Maybe it does exist though but Goodreads doesn't know about it.. Just like Unicorns

Elizabeth Hi Julia! I just got my signed copy of The Bridgertons: Happily Ever After. Thank you so much for signing it. Getting my copy in the mail just made my day! :)

Feby Thank you for adding me, Mrs. Quinn. I adore your book. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is one of my favorite :)

Laurie Hi Julia,
I am absolutely in love with your books! Every one of them I read captured my attention and made me wish that I was really living in old days London. They were fun and witty, my favorites had to be the Duke and I, and Everything and the Moon. Most of them I read I gave five stars because they had so many different characters with different personality's. It was just so much fun reading your work.
Thank you for your genius books!
