Elin is the author of 28 novels, including #thehotelnantucket which was just released on June 14th and will debut at No.1 on the New York Times bestseller list. During her senior year at Johns Hopkins University, Elin had her first short story accepted for publication in Seventeen Magazine, then spent a short stint working in publishing and teaching in New York City, before moving to Nantucket permanently in 1994. She earned her MFA in 1998 from the Iowa Writers Workshop and published her first novel, THE BEACH CLUB, in 2000. Aside from churning out 2+ decades of chart-topping summer books, the Winter series, and the Paradise series, Elin is also the proud mother of three, a dedicated Peloton rider, an aspiring book influencer, an enthusiastic at-home cook, and a grateful eight-year breast cancer survivor.
The author of six novels, including Blush and the national bestseller The Forever Summer, Jamie Brenner grew up in suburban Philadelphia on a steady diet of Jackie Collins and Judith Krantz novels. Like the heroines of her favorite books, Jamie left her hometown for New York City and worked at HarperCollins, Barnes&Noble.com and Vogue.com before becoming an author. She joins us to discuss her luxurious and richly compelling new novel #gilt, which Publishers Weekly says “sparkles like a diamond.”
