Her novels have been translated into 43 languages and are beloved the world over. A graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges, she lives with her family in the Pacific Northwest.

Look for BRIDGERTON, based on her popular series of novels about the Bridgerton family, on Netflix.


"A great read...with mystery and adventure and, yes, romance. Quinn's fans will be grateful she's crossed the pond for this textured look at life in New York during the 1770s." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband

"Quinn's sprightly dialogue, colorful descriptions, quick pace and emotionally touching storyline are just what readers expect from this consummate storyteller." -- RT Book Reviews on The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband

"The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband was an absolute treat. A historical romance written not in the Regency era but during the American Revolutionary War, this had a mix of poignant moments one would expect during such a tumultuous time along with the sweeping, heartwarming feeling of falling in love." -- Harlequin Junkie

"The novel has a well-constructed plot, well-drawn characters, and vivid dialog...Imaginative...The author maintains the tension of the undiscovered lie almost to the end, and the denouement is both amusing and satisfying." -- Historical Novel Society on The Girl with the Make-Believe Husband
