E L James, whose "Fifty Shades of Grey" series has broken sales records for adult publishing (150 million copies sold worldwide), is back with "The Mister," a contemporary romance set in London, Cornwall, and Eastern Europe. She headlines this Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) event.

About the Book

London 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But his biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own?

From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, "The Mister" is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.

About the Author

E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fangirl. After twenty-five years of working in television, she decided to pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous romance "Fifty Shades of Grey" and its two sequels, "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed". In 2015, she published the #1 bestseller "Grey", the story of "Fifty Shades of Grey" from the perspective of Christian Grey, and in 2017, the chart-topping "Darker," the second part of the Fifty Shades story from Christian’s point of view. Her books have been published in fifty languages and have sold more than 150 million copies worldwide.

E L James has been recognized as one of Time magazine’s “Most Influential People in the World” and Publishers Weekly’s ”Person of the Year.” "Fifty Shades of Grey" stayed on The New York Times Best Seller List for 133 consecutive weeks. "Fifty Shades Freed" won the Goodreads Choice Award (2012), and "Fifty Shades of Grey" was selected as one of the 100 Great Reads, as voted by readers, in PBS’s The Great American Read (2018). "Darker" has been long-listed for the 2019 International DUBLIN Literary Award.

She co-produced for Universal Studios the Fifty Shades movies, which made more than a billion dollars at the box office. The third installment, "Fifty Shades Freed," won the People’s Choice Award for Drama in 2018.

E L James is blessed with two wonderful sons and lives with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, and their West Highland terriers in the leafy suburbs of West London.
