Publishing under the names Julie Kenner, J. Kenner, and J.K. Beck, I have published over forty novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres. I've also had the honour to be named on both the New York Times and USA Today's bestseller lists!
Praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a 'flair for dialogue and eccentric characterisations,' I am also a two-time RITA finalist, the winner of Romantic Times‘ Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Contemporary Paranormal of 2001, the winner of the Reviewers International Organisation’s award for best romantic suspense of 2004 and best paranormal of 2005, and the winner of the National Readers’ Choice Award for best mainstream book of 2005.
I write a range of stories including sexy and quirky romances, young adult novels, chick lit suspense and paranormal mommy lit. My foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, is in development as a feature film with 1492 Pictures. My first two books in the current Stark Trilogy, Release Me and Claim Me (under tha name J. Kenner) is a New York Times and USA Today bestseller.
I currently reside in Central Texas with my husband, two daughters, and several cats.
