James L. Rubart likes to say he is 28 years old but lives trapped inside an older man’s body. He thinks he’s still young enough to water ski like a madman and dirt bike with his two grown sons. He’s the best-selling author of nine novels and loves to send readers on journeys they’ll remember months after they finish his stories. Awards he has won include RT Book Reviews, CAROL, INSPY, and Christy Book of the Year. He’s also a speaker, branding expert, co-host of the Novel Marketing podcast, and cofounder with his son, Taylor, of the Rubart Writing Academy. He lives with his wife in Washington State.
