She has been writing professionally for over ten years and her books have reached over 500,000 readers. Juliette is a French professor and a blogger for The Huffington Post, and her work has been featured on Kindle Love Stories, USA Today’s Happy Ever After Blog, and on the Examiner.com, where her novels were called “a perfect way to escape to a world far away from your own.” Later in her career, Amazon ran a feature story on how Juliette turned her publishing dreams into a reality on Amazon Success Stories. Juliette holds a B.A. from Georgetown University and an M.A. from New York University in Paris, and she is represented by Kevan Lyon of the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency.


Why write with Juliette? 

“Juliette Sobanet has the knowledge and expertise you’d expect in a professional writing mentor, but what makes her invaluable is her insight. She has the ability to look at a piece of my writing with more insight into what it’s really about than I have as the writer.  The result is that, although I’ve only been writing for a short time, under her guidance I am becoming the writer I’ve always wanted to be.” –Erny R. ~ Screenwriter & Novelist
