Today’s featured Beau Monde author is Julia Justiss!
Award-winning historical romance author Julia Justiss has written more than twenty-five novels and novellas set in the English Regency. Her awards include the Golden Heart for Regency from Romance Writers of America, The Golden Quill, and finals in Romantic Times Magazine’s Best First Historical, the National Readers Choice, the Daphne du Maurier and All About Romance’s Favorite Book of the Year.
A voracious reader who began jotting down plot ideas for Nancy Drew novels in her third grade spiral, Julia has published poetry and worked as a business journalist. An avid fan of Georgette Heyer, while unable to work a regular job when her husband was posted at the U.S Embassy in Tunisia, she decided to write her own Regency novel. And never looked back.
She and her husband live in East Texas, where she continues to craft the stories she loves. Check her website www.juliajustiss.com for her latest releases.
The Regency period ushers in the modern era. Industrialization has begun to change the way people live and work, the railroad is in its infancy, and there are continuous innovations in science. Yet, there is still the romance of an ordered society based around land, dominated by the horse and carriage.
Julia loves the Beau Monde Chapter and being with other writers who are as obsessed with the history of the period as she is. She has been a Beau Monde member for twenty years.
