Julia Quinn is a pseudonym that is used by Julie Pottinger; a bestselling author of the American romantic history. Julie Pottinger said that she chose to use her pseudonym so that her regency romances would be put on bookshelves, next to Amanda quick who was very successful in American’s history of romantic authors. Julia Pottinger’s books have been translated into more than 26 foreign languages and she has had an opportunity of appearing on the New York Times’ Bestseller list more than 18 times.

Julie Pottinger’s Biography

Julie Pottinger was raised in the New England although much of her time was spent in USA’s California after the separation of her parents. Julie Pottinger devoured books from a very young age. Her father was however very strict on the choices of books she led and at most times found themselves disagreeing on this. For example, her father became against her reading of book from the sweet valley high book and the sweet dreams books. He told her that he will only allow her to read such books if she proves that they are useful to her. Julie Pottinger normally defended herself by telling her father that she was only reading all those books so that at one point she could write one by herself.

Pressurized by her utterances and promises to her dad, she sat at their home computer and created her very first two chapters of her book. She completed her first novel after three years and submitted it to the sweet dreams, where it was eventually rejected.

Julie Pottinger graduated with art history degree from Harvard University. During her senior years in Harvard University, she still wasn’t sure want she wanted to do with her life and degree. So she decided to go to a medical school. Her decision of joining a medical school forced her to extend her time in college for two years so that she could complete the minimum science prerequisite that was required for one to get an entry to a medical school.

To keep herself busy during the long tiresome days of studying science, Julie Pottinger began her journey of writing Regency romantic novels that were mostly light hearted. A few weeks after been admitted to the long awaited medical school, she noticed that the two novels she wrote namely: Dancing at Midnight and Splendid had been accepted and unusually sold at auction, a situation that rarely happens to novice romantic writers. She then decided to postpone joining medical school for a period of two years and used that time to write two other romantic novels.

By the time Julie Pottinger fully joined the Yale school of medicine so that she could realize her dream of becoming a medical doctor, she had three of her books published. After a few months of studying medicine at Yale medical school, Julie Pottinger discovered her passion of writing rather than doing dissections. She then decided to leave medical school and devote her full time in writing novels.

Pottinger was a feminist. This was clearly seen in her writings where she gave her heroine characters qualities that were not necessarily true to the attitudes of her society at that time. Her books however have been popular for being humorous with sharp witty dialogues. Her novels are majorly driven by characters and lack the usual external conflicts that are found in many romantic novels.

One of her books namely: When He Was Wicked was seen as highly unusual to be a romantic novel. This is because the first chapters of the book introduces a heroine who is happily married to somebody who is not a hero, followed by the passing on of her first husband and how the two dealt with the grief before giving time for the second love story to develop.

However, most of Julie Pottinger’s books are a dedication to her husband, Paul Pottinger but with alternative tittles. Julie Pottinger won her first award; Romance Writers of America; RITA Awards of 2007 for her novel, On The Way To The Wedding and scoped another the following year for her book, The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever. When she again won the 2010 award for her novel, What Happens in London, she was honored as the youngest member and the only one among the fifteen authors to be named on the RWA Hall of Fame. However, in 2003, she had a rare opportunity of being profiled in the Time Magazine, which was an achievement very few romantic writers have been able to accomplish.

In 2005, Publishers Weekly gave her book, To Sir Philip with Love a rare review that led to it being named one of the best mass original markets among the six on that year. Surprisingly, each of her 13 novels have at one time appeared on the New York Times Bestseller’s List, with her novel, Mr. Cavendish, I presume hitting a number one spot in 2008. Julie Pottinger continues to flourish with most her book such as, A Night Like This appearing on the New York Times Magazine list on June 2012. Additionally, both of her Lady Whistledown anthologies had also appeared in the NYT List together with those she collaborated with Eloisa James and Connie Brockway namely; The Lady Most Likely and The Lady Most Willing, not forgetting her latest book Bridgertons: Happily Ever After.

In 2001, Julie Pottinger won $79,000 on the weakest link. All in all, Julie Pottinger (Julie Quinn) is an avid reader and normally post recommendations of her favorite novels on her Facebook page. Pottinger and her husband currently live in the United States of America at the Pacific Northwest area.

In her book The Bridgertons: Happy Ever After, she developed the Bridgertons family to consist of 8 siblings together with their widowed mother. In the book, the Bridgerton are highly favored and well respected among the British society. They are an amazingly tight knit clan and extremely loving. This series consist of 8 books where each and every sibling finds true love. However, each novel is set on the upper backdrop of an upper English community during the time of England Regency.

Julie Quinn has also published six epilogues for The Viscount Who Loved Me, Romancing Mister Bridgerton, An Offer From A Gentleman, When He Was Wicked, It’s In His Kiss and To Sir Philip, With Love, as eBooks. The final collection the eight remaining epilogues plus a story about violet; The Bridgerton Matriarch was released on 2nd April 2013.
