Ladies and Gents, please help us welcome Guest Chef JULIA QUINN to PFHT today. We’re thrilled to have Julia with us. She’s offered to do something a bit different and answer questions from the audience, so please post your questions in the comments and Julia will do her best to answer them.
By way of introduction, here’s Julia’s “Official Bio” and photo I pinched from her website:
#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 fashion, appearing on 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. Ms. Quinn is the youngest member of Romance Writers of America’s Hall of Fame, her books have been translated into 24 languages, and she currently lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.
Julia’s latest books, Just Like Heaven and A Night Like This feature the Smyth-Smith Quartet. Beautiful covers, aren’t they?
Want to know more? Ask and ye shall receive answers.
Julia, thanks so much for being here.
I’ll start the Q & A by asking about a little rumor I heard. Is it true there will be giveaways today? Dare we hope a book might be involved?
