Hi, my name is Julie and I write books! I also eat, sleep, pet cats, but mostly I'm dedicated to the written word-a real bookworm if you will.
A few years back I conceived of a series from one word that flashed across my brain...FRANKENSWINE! Wow, it hit me like a ton of bricks that this could be the seed of a series of books for Y.A. readers and above that are take-offs of traditional horror classics such as Frankenstein and The Werewolf. Yes, I could re-engineer the classics to my liking with animal characters. I began tinkering around.
I sat right down, like most writers do and penned the book...
DR. FRANKENSWINE about a mad scientist PIG named Oinkter Frankenswine who journeys to Darmstadt to take up his EVIL legacy, and along with the most lame assistant imaginable...HOGOR, the two set out to create the perfect MONSTER! Sounds like Frankenstein, doesn't it??? Only in my version, the main characters are PIGS.
From that germ of an idea came the 2nd book in the series...
THE WEREWOOF-Sherlock Hound of Scottie Yard and his trusty assistant, Woofton are hot on the trail of the WEREWOOF in London. Werewoof?
Then came Book #3...CATULA...The Count is on the loose in London being chased by Jonathan Clawer, Miss Meowna, Dr. van Hissing and a whole cast of CAT characters, written in diary style the same as DRACULA-a spoof from the original classic.
Soon I intend to pen THE BANTAM OF THE OPERA which will finish the series.
My other books listed here on Smashwords for purchase are...
Big Bad Wolf-the Wolf's side of the story from Fairy Tale lore...he wants you to hear his side!
Waiting for Aliens...Alien spoof book about a horrid old couple who go on a madcap adventure of Waiting For Aliens
Dogchiatrist-Dr. Barkley Jones treats dog patients helping them overcome their fears
The Grass Grows Green-historical novel about racial prejudice.
Yes, I write books, books are my life, reading, too! I hope you will see them and purchase some and give some reviews, too!
My new Adult book is SCROOGE, THE VAMPIRE-the monster mash-up book of Dickens' beloved classic A Christmas Carol. Scary! Funny! You'll never think of Scrooge the same way again after reading it.
When I'm not writing, I'm painting my own original folk art and selling it on Ebay weekly and in galleries across the U.S. I've placed paintings in fine homes in nearly every state in the union! Am most well known for my black folk art though I'm not African-American.
But writing is my very first love!
I reside in Hillsboro, TX, 60 miles south of Dallas where I grew, write and pet cats!
I will have new books coming soon!
