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. Whether or not I’m a real grown-up or have anything in common with Judy Blume remains to be seen. But my first novel, Letters for Scarlet, was released by Velvet Morning Press in 2016. And I’m VERY excited to announce that my first YA book, Lily by any other name will be released by InkSpell Publishing on November 14th! It’s available to pre-order on amazon NOW. You can also click here to get it on KOBO.
17-year-old Lily Anderson is ready to wrap herself in a big red bow and give Zach Hewitt the greatest gift in the history of Christmas: Her. But when she pulls a pair of booties from her stocking and learns her forty-year-old mother is pregnant, Lily finds herself adrift, unsure of Zach’s commitment.
