About Jamie



The Obligatory Bio

Jamie Sobrato dreamed of being a writer ever since composing her first bad poetry at the age of 8. Now that she’s seen 20 of her novels published in the US and around the world, she’s grateful for those grade school teachers who had the grace not to cringe at her early efforts.  Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Jamie now lives with her husband and two children in Northern California, where she is at work on her next book.

Still Curious? Have burning questions you need answered?

When is your next book coming out, and why are you taking so long to write it?

Email me at jamiesobrato@yahoo.com and I’ll add you to my email list. When I have a new release, you’ll be the first to know. And no, I won’t sell your email address to spam bots or abuse it in any annoying or obnoxious way. All that will happen is you’ll get a very infrequent newsletter from me. Promise.

How long does it take you to write a book, anyway?

I’m envious of authors who have an easy answer for this, such as “three months.” I have written a novel in as little as a couple of months, and I have take a lot longer. I have one book that I’m still pecking away at after 3 years. Yeesh. My favorite thought on this topic is not my own, but that of a writer friend: “It takes me as long as the publisher contract says I have to write the book.”

Why is your website so jacked up?

I maintain it myself, and I far prefer writing books to posting stuff about them on the internet. This is a serious character flaw, but I’m working on it.
