Like most authors I know, I'm a voracious reader. My favorite classic authors are Edith Wharton, John le Carre, Martin Cruz Smith, Jane Austen, Graham Greene, P.D. Wodehouse, Margaret Mitchell, Glen David Gold, and Raymond Chandler.

As for contemporary authors, I think that both Martin Cruz Smith and John Le Carre are two of the best writers alive, and I love the writing styles of Helen Fielding, Jackie Collins and Allison Pearson. I think John Lescroart and MJ Rose are amazing, both as authors and author advocates.

I'm a cinephile (I see everything--chick flicks, action films, art house movies, almost every kind of foreign film) and I'm a walker and hiker--anywhere from four to eleven miles a day.

Otherwise, I'M WRITING. Or researching for my next books....meeting the wonderful people who let me know that what I write resonates with them...or hanging out in my fave bookstores (which is any bookstore in any town I happen to be in, at the time).

I've got a sweet romantic husband (who both cooks AND walks the dog, come rain, sleet or flood), and two great funny kids, a boy and a girl. Yeah, I know, I'm lucky, and I should count my blessings. (Believe me, I do!)

I'm also the author of three non-fiction books: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Finding Mr. Right [Alpha/Pearson]; Marriage Confidential: 102 Honest Answers to the Questions Every Husband Wants to Ask, and Every Wife Needs to Know [Signal Press]; and Last Night I Dreamt of Cosmopolatans: A Modern Girl's Dream Dictionary [St. Martin's Press]

As a journalist, my celebrity interviews and relationships trends articles have been featured in Los Angeles Times Syndicate International, Redbook and Complete Woman magazines, as well as AOL, Yahoo, AskMen.com, Divorce360.com, and SingleMindedWomen.com

PRAISE FOR JOSIE'S BOOKS:

The Baby Planner

"Brown takes baby mania to its illogical, hysterical extreme in this bubbly romp....But what begins as a light foray into Bugaboo country turns into something bigger than a satire of status-obsessed Bay Area yummy mummies as Brown takes a dark look at the fears of parenthood and family, with Katie's heartbreaking longing for a child unveiling a disturbing reality about her marriage and family. Still, the message from the somber realities is one full of hope: love makes a family, commitment keeps it together." --Publishers Weekly

Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives

"Josie Brown writes with all the secrets, sex, money and scandal of an OK Magazine cover. Truly entertaining reading."--Jackie Collins, Hollywood Wives

"Josie Brown's writing is whip-smart as well as wickedly funny, and just as you are enjoying the ride she takes you on, she shatters your heart with her insight into modern lives." --Tatjana Soli, New York Times bestselling author and 2011 recipient of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for fiction for The Lotus Eaters

"Already touted as the perfect summer beach read, this character driven (sometimes steamy) book can best be described as the offspring of an affair between Desperate Housewives and a Jennifer Weiner novel....A quick look into the sometimes catty world of wealth where priorities get shifted, friendships get broken and marriages, like their mansions, get rearranged. It was light and fluffy (with some excellent dialogue.)..." -- GoodHousekeeping.com

"I loved it! Josie Brown captures the highs and lows of love, lust and marriage with heartwrenching pathos. I'm recommending it to all my friends as the perfect beach read!" -- Lisa Rinna, acatress, and author of the novel Starlit



True Hollywood Lies

The tone is confessional, the writing laced with venomous humor..."
--Wall Street Journal

"Brown captures the humor of working for a megalomaniac...[A] well-paced, entertaining story..." --Publishers Weekly

"A fine piece of literary work." --New York Post


Impossibly Tongue-Tied

"Brad, Angelina, Britney and Kevin may want to check out Josie Brown's new novel, Impossibly Tongue-Tied, for its ripped-from-the-headlines plot that mixes their scandals together..." - PAGE SIX, New York Post

Josie lives in San Francisco, California, with Martin and our two children.

Martin, my husband: THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO FINDING MR. RIGHT, and MARRIAGE CONFIDENTIAL: 102 HONEST Answers to the Questions Every Husband Wants to Ask, and Every Wife Needs to Know.

I love all of Josie's work so the HA series is my favorite of her work. So I'm always thrilled when she comes out with another piece. This one takes a different sort of pace than the prior housewife assassin series, but is still fantastic. As always, I look forward to any future installments to this series. In the meantime, I will busy myself with reading all the rest of Josie's work that I haven't yet consumed. There are blessed few truly gifted writers anymore. I'm thrilled to have found this one. Even more thrilled she continues to deliver work after awesome work.

The title doesn't lie. Lots of great and interesting recipes to tries. Wasn't expecting to see real recipes. Donna Stone in a new light. Still fighting crime with her true love Jack. Together they fight for Justice. A real page turner. An ending that leaves you ready for the next book. Strongly recommend reading.

Wow, this was different.

Donna is now out of the closet and everyone knows she is playing bodyguard, along with Jack, to political nominees on the Presidential trail. Not one of the other housewife characters questions this - so be aware it is obviously a poor plot line. Despite knowing that Lee C was involved in human "big game" hunting, Donna is just fine with him. And since Babette taught Trisha about the "quorum", and an entire book happened in the Lion's Lair, it is no surprise that ACME hasn't bugged it, of course. Donna is blamed for every failure and when she is fired, goes right to the bottle and starts drinking heavily - because she wants her children to see the same alcoholic and distant parent Donna had as a child. Our heroine wants back into the spy business, not time to raise her children. Then we have the ultimate in plot idiocies: an 11 y.o. girl's crush is still so angst-ridden that 25 years later she can't function when the boy and "other woman" reappear? Of course Donna is protecting Bobby's secrets - that 'relationship' was really important and it doesn't matter about national security, et al. Here's some advice to our heroine: forget about whether Bobby was keeping you occupied with that second kiss so CeeCee could steal the recipe, and worry about why Jack accused you of killing his pregnant wife, why Ryan suddenly has no power to keep you from being arrested and interrogated repeatedly, and the fact that you used to go out on solo missions and win the day - but now you need rescued every darn time because along with getting fat / old / ugly - you have apparently lost your skills!

And then we have the ending. Is Jack alarmed at Carl's return? No, we're on to the Lincoln bedroom for some sex.

They now have a term for watching TV shows one after the other on your DVR, it is called binge-watching. Well, I binge-read all the Housewives books because I couldn’t stop once I started! As with the other books, this was a fun read and full of twists and turns. The main character is really funny and very relatable. Although this book has romance and comedy, it is written very intelligently with current events thrown into the mix. I can’t wait for #7!!!
