Jamie Brenner grew up in suburban Philadelphia, where her regular Saturday routine of brunch and a visit to the local bookstore with her father lead to a lifelong love of reading. After studying literature at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., Jamie set out for New York City where she started her career at HarperCollins Publishers, then later Barnes&Noble.com and Vogue.com before becoming a literary agent. Now a full-time writer herself, she is the author of The Wedding Sisters and The Gin Lovers. Jamie still lives in New York with her husband and children, whom she takes to the bookstore every chance she gets.
Her next novel, The Forever Summer, is coming spring 2017 from Little, Brown.
