Judith Krantz

Judith Krantz (née Tarcher; January 9, 1928 – June 22, 2019) was a magazine writer and fashion editor who turned to fiction as she approached the age of 50. Her first novel ''Scruples'' (1978) quickly became a ''New York Times'' best-seller and went on to be a worldwide publishing success, translated into 50 languages. ''Scruples'', which describes the glamorous and affluent world of high fashion in Beverly Hills, California, helped define a new supercharged sub-genre of the romance novel - the [https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/bonkbuster bonkbuster] or "sex-and-shopping" novel. She also fundamentally changed the publishing industry by becoming one of the first celebrity authors through her extensive touring and promotion - "a superstar of fiction". Her later books included ''Princess Daisy'' (1980), ''Till We Meet Again'' (1988), ''Dazzle'' (1990) and ''Spring Collection'' (1996). Her autobiography, ''Sex and Shopping: The Confessions of a Nice Jewish Girl'', was published in 2000. Provided by Wikipedia
