Author of the Month- June 2010

Julia Quinn
     With her novels translated into 13 different foreign languages and her 9-time appearance on the New York Times Bestseller List; I believe the consensus is, that Julia Quinn is a bona fide super-maven of the romance world. The Harvard alum with aspirations of becoming a doctor, entered medical school only to leave shortly after and pursue her dreams and write full-time. And what wonderful dreams they were! Every novel with her name scribed on the cover exemplifies her magnificent determination and talent; Each book by Quinn is simply marvelous. There is just no breaking down that sentiment; its fact. Readers fell in love with the Bridgertons, Blydons, Bevelstokes, Lyndons, Wyndams; and who can forget fan-favorite, Lady Whistledown! God-willing, through the years, Ms.Quinn will keep on as she's been keeping on and stick to the old adage; "If it isn't broke, don't fix it". Her humorous and emotional writing-style will surly be the text-book guide for the new generation of authors. But mark my words; Another JQ, you will never find!Source
