Dubbed a modern-day Jane Austen, Emily Giffin's five novels have sold millions of copies and scored spots on the New York Times bestseller list. Blonde, blue-eyed, smart, and beautiful, Giffin writes about heroines with deep flaws that drive the story, but on the surface at least, Giffin's own life seems charmed, even close to perfect.
After years of making the smart, risk-averse decisions that often mark overachievers, Giffin took a major leap of faith in herself, leaving the stressful world of high-stakes litigation to try writing novels full-time. For many lawyers, following their dreams would have been too risky. For many lawyers that do take a risk, the leap would have been a mere break that led to returning to legal practice. But not for Emily Giffin, whose risk paid off with enormous measurable success and the adoration of her fans.
