About the Author
She studied Zoology and Secondary Education at Brigham Young University, paying her way through college by performing live reptile demonstrations at the university’s life science museum.
She spent eighteen months living in London where she studied and fell in love with English Literature, Sticky Toffee Pudding, and the fellow who ran the kebab store around the corner.
After editing for other authors, she decided to take up writing again--this time in the young adult genre. She feels qualified to write for teens because, as a young adult, she mastered the art of drama. Oh, and she has some skulking around the house.
Julie is a member of SCBWI, the League of Utah Writers, and Utah Children’s Writers. She frequently attends conferences where she has won a few awards for her writing, and is part of a superb writer’s group.
FUN THINGS JULIE HAS DONE~
1. Thrown a frisbee off the top of the Eiffel tower. It was a group effort.
2. Removed my own stitches. The nurse was doing a terrible (aka painful) job, so I demanded the scissors and finished it myself.
3. Killed a rat with my bare hands. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
4. Pulled a snake tooth out of my finger--on my honeymoon. True story. The snake (a Rainbow Boa Constrictor) bit me a few weeks before my wedding. I couldn’t figure out why it was taking so long to heal--until part of the tooth started sticking out. Did I mention it was on my honeymoon?
5. Talked my way out of three speeding tickets. Seriously, it pays to go to the judge and argue your case.
6. Taught myself to play the Irish whistle.
7. Snuck out of the hotel (age 18--three girls--alone) in Moscow to meet some strange (but hot) guys at a local disco. Did we ever find them? No. Did we ever find the disco? No. Did we get lost on the subway system and find ourselves wandering deserted streets late at night in Communist Russia? Yes. Were we stupid to try? Absolutely.
8. Stole a flashing barricade from a road construction site. It’s important to note that they put those barricades up for a reason--to warn sneaky teenagers of the deep and dangerous hole. Picture roadrunner slapping down a black circle-hole. Picture Wile E. Coyote walking along then suddenly disappearing into the aforementioned hole. As a follow up, I’d like to say that, riddled by guilt, we put it back about an hour later.
9. Held a scorpion in my bare hands. A live scorpion.
10. Got car sick on the way home from Disneyland. I was trying to finish my math homework in the very back of a station wagon. To this day, any mathematical work still makes me a little queasy.
11. Been chased by a moose.
(A review copy was provided, however, all reviews are of my own opinion :)
