Sand Dune Books is the publishing imprint for author Maddie James, who also writes as Sophie Jacobs.

Maddie writes to silence the people in her head--people who finally quiet down when their stories are told. Author of 40+ romantic novels and novellas, she pens stories in contemporary, paranormal, and romantic suspense worlds. She's mighty partial to her cowboys and her small town heroes.

Published since 1997, she has worked with a variety of publishing house from traditional to small press--Kensington Books, Thorndike, Resplendence Publishing, Turquoise Morning Press--and now produces all of her work as an independent author via Sand Dune Books.

RT Book Reviews says, James “deftly combines romance and suspense,” and Affaire de Couer claims, “James has a special talent for traditional romance.” Published in print, ebook, audiobook, and in at least seven languages, Maddie has been listed as a Top 100 Romance Author on Amazon and as an iBooks Rising Star in Western Romance. As Sophie Jacobs, she writes contemporary romance and women’s fiction.

Maddie is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and its Published Author Network (PAN), and Novelists, Inc (NINC).
