Julie garwood has sold millions of books worldwide. Her name is synonymous with romance powerhouses Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught. Since 1985, with the release of Gentle Warrior, her first historical set in the middle ages, Julie's transformed herself from a reticent young adult writer (A Girl Named Summer and What's A Girl To Do? written as Emily Chase) to a historical and suspense dynamo whose name appears regularly on the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.
Having grown up in a large Irish family with six other siblings, Julie was eleven when her mother made the startling discovery that her daughter couldn't read. Julie was then sent to a remedial high school where she was taken under the wing of a nun who spent the summer teaching her young pupil the basics. "[Sister Elizabeth] introduced me to reading—short stories, the classics. I sat on the dictionary and stood up, learned this word, sat down. Stood up, learned another word, and sat down again. Up and down—all summer long,"
With the release of her two young adult novels and her historical romance, Julie went full-steam ahead with her publisher, Pocket Books. She wrote Rebellious Desire in 1986 for the now defunct Tapestry line. Heroine Caroline Richmond rescues a "dandy" who's been shot in the groin and much to Caroline's surprise, the man mourns his boots more so than his delicate wound.
This terrific sense of humor is illustrated to perfection in titles such as Guardian Angel (featuring a Regency-era James Bond), Honor's Splendor (a klutzy heroine) and Lion's Lady (an evil father). RT BOOKclub awarded Julie its prestigious Career Achievement award in 19881999 for her Regency historical romances. One year later, Pocket released Julie's first contemporary suspense title, Heartbreaker, for the Buchanan Brothers series. The love story of Nick Buchanan, an FBI agent, and Laurel Madden, the younger sister of Nick's best friend, Father Tom Madden, who hears the confession of a killer who threatens Laurel, received glowing reviews. Julie went on to pen Mercy in 2001 and now KILLJOY, released this month from Ballantine. KILLJOY follows Avery Delaney, an FBI profiler, who must track down her Aunt Carolyn, the woman who raised her as a child.
