Bobbi Smith

After working as a department manager for Famous-Barr, and briefly as a clerk at a bookstore, Bobbi Smith gave up on career security and began writing. She sold her first book to Zebra in 1982.

In the past 28 years, Bobbi has written more than 50 books and 6 novellas, and the love affair has become a sizzling romance between the author and her fans. To date, there are over 6 million Bobbi Smith novels in print.

Bobbi has achieved many career goals. She has been awarded the prestigious Storyteller of the Year award and two Career Achievement awards from Romantic Times Magazine and has attained positions on The New York Times bestseller list, the USA TODAY bestseller list, the Waldenbooks bestseller list, B.

The foreign rights to Ms. Smith’s books have been sold to China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Russia and Sweden. Bobbi has written two faith-based contemporary novels—Haven and Miracles—under the pseudonym of Julie Marshall.

When she’s not working on her novels, she is frequently a guest speaker for writers’ groups. Bobbi is mother of two sons and resides in St. Charles, Missouri with her husband and three dogs.
