VJ Books Presents Author Mary Kubica!

Mary Kubica has been writing stories since she was a child. She already had many unfinished projects by the time she had a child of her own, but she seized this moment of change in her life and started on the first book that she would finish.

Before becoming a full-time mom and author, Kubica studied History and American Literature at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, and subsequently taught high school history. After four years of writing, editing, and weathering the many rejection letters that come with becoming a novelist, her first thriller, The Good Girl (2014), was published.

With more than a half-dozen novels now published, her books have sold more than 2 million copies across the globe. When not writing, Kubica enjoys gardening, working at her local animal shelter, reading, and photography. She lives near Chicago with her husband and two children.
