Author Biography
Krantz, Judith (Author)
Judith Krantz was born on January 9, 1929 in New York City. She graduated from Wellesley College in 1948. She was a fashion publicist in Paris in the late 1940s. She was the fashion editor for Good Housekeeping magazine, a contributing writer to McCall's magazine and Ladies' Home Journal, and the contributing West Coast editor of Cosmopolitan.

Her first novel, Scruples, was published in 1978. Her other novels include Princess Daisy, Mistral's Daughter, I'll Take Manhattan, Till We Meet Again, The Jewels of Tessa Kent, and Lovers. Her autobiography, Sex and Shopping: The Confessions of a Nice Jewish Girl, was published in 2000. Although she did not publish her first book until she was 50, Krantz's 10 novels have together sold more than 85 million copies in more than 50 languages. Most of her books also became TV movies or mini-series, often produced by her husband, Steve Krantz.

Because of her love for reading and writing, Krantz was an enthusiastic supporter of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles and an active member of the Council of the Library Foundation. In 2014, she received the Light of Learning Award from the LFLA. In recognition of her many years of support, the Los Angeles Public Library named the Judith Krantz Fiction Collection in her honor.

Judith Krantz passed away on 06/22/2019 at the age of 91.
