Shirley Jump is an author of romance and women’s fiction novels. She is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. Shirley began her career in journalism, and sold her first article when she was only 11. She dreamed of being the next Jane Pauley. She hosted two locally broadcasted shoes on her own, plus a late-night comedy show she co-hosted. Eventually, Shirley decided that a career as a freelance writer would suit her better. She sold a couple of essays to anthologies, and then switched to being a romance novelist. Shirley enjoys seeing her books in stores, but confesses that she mostly writes because she’d rather write than clean the toilets, and helps her buy more shoes.

Shirley Jump made her debut as a novelist in 2003 with the novel The Virgin’s Proposal. Below is a list of Shirley Jump’s books in order of when they were first released:
