#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and and if you watch reruns of the game show The Weakest Link you might just catch her winning 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.

A graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges, Ms. Quinn is one of only sixteen members of Romance Writers of America’s Hall of Fame. Her books have been translated into 32 languages, and she lives with her family in the Pacif

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!
Laurie
