All About Jamie Wesley

Jamie Wesley has been reading romance novels since she was about 12 when her mother left a romance novel, which a friend had given her, on the nightstand. Jamie read it instead, and the rest is history.

She started her first manuscript, a contemporary romance, after she graduated from Northwestern University in 2002 and couldn't find a job. Life got in the way as it often does, i.e. she found a job, and she didn't finish the story. However, she never forgot about it and finally got serious about completing it in 2009. And then she finished a few more stories. In 2012, her manuscript, TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD was named a finalist in RWA’s Golden Heart competition and will be published by Entangled Publishing in 2014.

Jamie holds a master’s degree in sport management (yes, that's a real thing :-) ) from the University of Texas at Austin, so it probably comes as no surprise that she loves sports and spends an inordinate amount of time rooting for her hometown Dallas’s pro sports teams and her alma maters.

She also adores Walt Disney World, shopping, and pop culture. Want to know if your favorite TV show is going to be canceled or what the newest Disney attraction is? Ask Jamie. She'll probably know the answer.

A Lady Walks into Target…

Saturday, after having lunch with a friend, I decided to head to Target to pick up Mariah Carey’s new CD. (If you don’t like her, well…it’s OK. Everyone is entitled to their opinion). Target promised a CD with exclusive tracks, and I’m as sucker for getting something extra for free. This story has a point, […]

As I Get Closer to My Book Release…

“I’m just so nervous. You know? And I’m also very excited. I’m nervous and I’m excited. It’s all very mixed up.”  That’s one of my favorite lines from one of my favorite movies, 10 Things I Hate About You. Granted, it’s no “Remove head from sphincter, then drive!” or “I know you can be overwhelmed […]
