Jude Deveraux Biography & Facts

Jude Deveraux (born September 20, 1947 in Fairdale, Kentucky, née Jude Gilliam) is an American author of historical romances. Deveraux has written over 40 novels, many of which have been on The New York Times Best Seller list, including such titles as A Knight in Shining Armor and Remembrance; she has sold over 50 million copies as of 2016. Deveraux appeared as herself in the 1987 romance novelist documentary Where the Heart Roams. Literary work Known for her historical romances with storylines centered on strong, capable heroines, Deveraux has written stories set in several time periods, including post-Revolutionary America, nineteenth century Colorado, and nineteenth century New Mexico. She has written several time-travel romances, and her later novels have had a contemporary setting. Many of her more recent books feature paranormal storylines. Many of her books follow the Montgomery and Taggert families and contain recurring characters. In 2009, she was one of four authors who produced works for the debut of Vook, a company which produces "video books" by combining text, video and internet links into a single experience.Deveraux wrote "A Girl From Summer Hill," a contemporary take of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice in 2016. Personal life Deveraux's 8-year-old adopted son, Sam Alexander Montassir, died in 2005 when he was hit by a truck near their home in North Carolina. After the death of Deveraux's son, she came under the influence of psychic Rose Marks, who offered her the ability to continue to contact her son as well as to save him from being "caught between heaven and hell". Deveraux had already known Marks, who used an assumed name of "Joyce Mitchell" to Deveraux, from marriage counselling as well as difficulties in becoming pregnant, but the relationship strengthened after the death, and Deveraux was encouraged to break ties with other friends. Marks extracted between 17-20 million dollars from Deveraux, leaving her with almost no money left despite her lucrative writing career. Marks told Deveraux as well as other victims that their money and valuables were cursed by malign influence and needed to be given to her for "cleansing rituals" and that they would be returned; yet the items never were returned. Marks was found guilty of fraud in a trial in 2013, and lost an appeal of her sentence in 2016.
