About the Author

James Spada is the author of fourteen books, including the international bestsellers Peter Lawford: The Man Who Kept the Secrets, Grace: The Secret Lives of a Princess, Monroe:  Her Life in Pictures, and Streisand: The Woman and the Legend.

Born and raised in Staten Island, New York, he founded a Marilyn Monroe Fan Club at thirteen and edited its journals for four years.  As a college student in 1969, he began a political quarterly devoted exclusively to Senator Edward M. Kennedy.  He spent the summer of 1970 as a Senate intern in Kennedy's Boston office.

In 1977, Spada became the only author to write an authorized career biography of Robert Redford.  In 1981 and 1982, his best-selling pictorial books about Barbra Streisand and Marilyn Monroe were published, followed by studies of Judy Garland and Liza Minnelli, Bette Midler, Jane Fonda, Shirley MacLaine and Warren Beatty, and Katharine Hepburn. His 1987 book, Grace, spent nine weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and was translated in thirteen languages. His Peter Lawford biography was serialized by Vanity Fair in 1991 and also became a New York Times bestseller.

He lives in Los Angeles.
