Bio:
  1. Kenner (aka Julie Kenner) is the New York TimesUSA TodayPublishers WeeklyWall Street Journal,and #1 International bestselling author of over seventy novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres.

 

Though known primarily for her award-winning and international bestselling erotic romances, JK has been writing full time for over a decade in a variety of genres including paranormal and contemporary romance, “chicklit” suspense, urban fantasy,  and paranormal mommy lit.

 

JK has been praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations” and by RT Bookclub for having “cornered the market on sinfully attractive, dominant antiheroes and the women who swoon for them.” JK has been a finalist for Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award five times, and a winner once, taking home the first RITA trophy awarded in the category of erotic romance in 2014 for her novel, Claim Me.

 

Before diving into writing full time, JK worked as an attorney in Texas and California where she practiced primarily civil, entertainment, and First Amendment law.  She currently lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and two rather spastic cats.
