Hello and thanks for stopping by! My name is Julie and I’m the wife of one, the mother of two, and the owner of three adorable dogs. My husband and kids are adorable, too, but they tend to steer clear of the spotlight. Click here to learn more about me.

At ten years old I wrote this in my diary: When I grow up I want to be a teacher like my dad, and a writer like Judy Blume.

In a shocking display of goal-achievement, I did become a teacher and am now a published author. My works explore conflicts in friendship and family, in love and life. Check out Letters for Scarlet, Guest list (its prequel novella), and Lily by Any Other Name (a YA novel set in the same world as my other books).
