Jude Deveraux was once a fifth-grade teacher who loved to read. When her imagination began to be filled with her own stories to tell, her career as a writer began. Deveraux’s novels have been set in both contemporary and historical periods. Her strong, lyrical writing style and ability to write stories with memorable characters, rich detail, and believable dialogue has garnered her many devoted readers.
Jude Deveraux has had over 30 books on the New York Times bestsellers list, has over 60 million copies in print, and has been translated into 18 languages. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading murder mysteries, and working in her garden; and in boxing class, she likes to show much younger males that she can throw a mean right cross.
