Jamie Brenner grew up in suburban Philadelphia, where her Saturday routine of breakfast at a diner with her dad followed by a visit to the local bookstore sparked a lifelong book obsession. After studying literature at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Jamie moved to New York City where she started her career at HarperCollins Publishers, then later Barnes&Noble.com and Vogue.com before returning to books as a literary agent. Now a full-time writer, her latest novel, The Forever Summer, is a USA Today bestseller. Her next book, The Husband Hour, publishes in April 2018 with Little, Brown. Jamie lives in New York City with her husband and teenage daughters.
