Story
Tagline
New York Times best-selling author of “Something Borrowed,” “Something Blue,” “Heart of the Matter” and more.
Introduction

Emily Giffin, a Chicago native, graduated summa cum laude from Wake Forest University and the University of Virginia School of Law. After law school, she moved to Manhattan and practiced litigation at a large firm for several years while she paid back her school loans, wrote a novel in her very limited spare time, and dreamed of becoming a writer.

Despite the rejection of her first manuscript, Giffin persisted, retiring from the legal profession and moving to London to pursue her dreams fulltime. It was there that she began writing Something Borrowed (2004), a story of a young woman who, upon turning thirty, finally learned to take a risk and follow her heart. One year later, Giffin's own gamble paid off, as she completed her manuscript, landed an agent and signed a two-book deal on both sides of the Atlantic. The following summer, Something Borrowed, hailed as a "heartbreakingly honest debut" with "dead-on dialogue, real-life complexity and genuine warmth," became a surprise sensation, and Giffin vowed never to practice law again.

Dubbed a "modern day Jane Austen" and a "dependably down-to-earth storyteller," Giffin has since penned four more New York Times bestsellers, Something Blue (2005), Baby Proof (2006), Love the One You're With (2008) and Heart of the Matter (2010). Her five novels, all filled with her endearingly flawed characters and emotional complexity, have been translated into twenty-nine languages, with five million copies in print worldwide. In addition, three of her novels have been optioned for the big screen, starting with Something Borrowed, which was released in 2011.

Giffin now resides with her husband and three young children in Atlanta, where she received the Georgia Debut Author of the Year Award. She just released her sixth novel Where We Belong and is working on a screenplay for Baby Proof.
