Think about a good Friends episode, and you have Julia Quinn's romantic appeal encapsulated in a 30 minute episode: witty,real, and adoringly romantic. 

Julia Quinn (Julie Pottinger) didn't start out wanting to be a romance novelist, but struggled to find out what she wanted to do with her life.  She considered many possibilities, coming up with a doctor's career and medical school. Unable to enroll directly into medical school as she needed a few science courses, she needed to do something in the meantime. She took a look at a stack of romance novels, so the story goes, and said "I can write those." And Julia Quinn the romance novelist was born. A few years later, she traded in her surgical scalpel for her novelist pen.

 Quinn shares her top five reasons (further details are shared in the full text) "Why It's Good to Be a Romance Writer."

1. You get to go to work in your sweatpants.

2. You get to be Queen of the World. (Or at least of your characters.)

3. There is no three. (See what I mean about being Queen of the World?)

4. At cocktail parties, you always have the most interesting job.

5. Happy endings, happy endings, happy endings!

Quinn specializes in  Regency romance writing, settings in England during the 1800's, rather Jane Austenesque. She has a "smart, funny touch with dialogue", and her writing is compared to that of Helen Fielding's Bridget Jones.

Julie's writing has quickly earned a reputation for warmth and humor, and her dialogue is considered among the best in the industry.
