But then she dipped her toes into script writing and quickly realized that storytelling was her primary passion. So, she left the law to write full-time. Surprisingly, the Amazon bestseller had her sights set on the FBI.

Law enforcement has always intrigued her, partly because of family members like her grandfather, a police Captain before his retirement, and Julie’s husband, whose father was a former police officer in Chicago.

In fact, she graduated college and went to Law School with the intention of eventually veering into the FBI. However, an FBI recruiter dashed the author’s dreams during her first semester when he revealed that Julie would never pass the vision test.

This left her with no other choice but to become a real lawyer. You won’t find her complaining. It took the author a while to realize that she was too much of a scaredy cat to succeed as a Special Agent. Additionally, Julie found that she actually enjoyed practicing law.

It took her over a year to make that life-altering decision to leave the law for publishing. At the time, she had written two manuscripts. When producers optioned them, Julie realized she could turn publishing into a career if she wrote full-time. The author knew she would regret it in the long run if she allowed the uncertainty to prevent her from pursuing her writing dreams.

Her first book was a screenplay titled ‘The Andrews Project.’ A producer optioned the script, but the movie was never made. When the option expired, Julie’s film agent encouraged her to turn the script into a book, and the author acquiesced.

The film agent in question liked the manuscript so much that he submitted it to a literary agent who secured the author a deal with Berkley.

Julie doesn’t approach her books the same way she would a screenplay because screenplays are locked into a specific format. That said, when the author plots a book, she starts by playing it in her head like a movie.

The dialog is pivotal to her success. Audiences have praised Julie for the hilarious banter and sarcastic exchanges between her characters. They’ve also praised her for the insight she shows while writing from a male POV.

People think she grew up in a house with many male siblings, which is not true. She doesn’t have brothers. However, she can rely on her guy friends and husband to tell her how they would react in the situations she creates in her books.

Best Julie James Books

The author does extensive research for her books. That includes talking to lawyers in different fields, journalists, and even undercover FBI agents to understand their worlds better. Julie’s best books include:

Something About You: Cameron Lynde was looking for some peace and quiet when she rented a hotel room in Chicago. But that is not what she got from the room next door. If the hot-and-heavy lovemaking wasn’t bad enough, it had also ended in death.

Now, the U.S. Attorney is in a pickle. The FBI wants Special Agent Jack Pallas to investigate the case. But Pallas hates Cameron. The lawyer nearly sunk his career. How can anyone expect them to co-exist?

Initially, Jack is happy to dismiss the situation as a prank. After all, no one in their right mind would ask him to tolerate Cameron when she botched a crackdown years ago. The last thing the Special Agent expects is for sexual tension to ignite between him and Cameron.

Just The Sexiest Man Alive: Jason Andrews could have any woman he wanted. So why was Taylor Donovan so immune to his charms? How could she resist him when he could bend most women to his will without even trying?

How come her disinterest was making him want her even more? When she says no to him, Jason refuses to back down. After all, she’s been hired to coach him for his next role in a legal thriller.

She has no choice but to work with him, which gives Jason plenty of time to work his magic. As far as People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ is concerned, Taylor is his perfect match.
