Julie Anne Peters
Julie Anne Peters is the critically-acclaimed, award-winning author of more than a dozen books for young adults and children. Her books have been published in numerous countries, including Korea, China, Croatia, Germany, France, Italy, Indonesia, Turkey, and Brazil.
Julie is a member of The Society of Book Writers and Illustrators, the Colorado Authors League, and The Authors Guild.
She loves writing because she gets to be her own boss and doesn't have to work in an office cubicle. It's hard to think outside the box when you work in a cube.
Julie lives in Lakewood, Colorado, with her partner, Sherri, and far too many cats. The cats are under the impression that they're creative geniuses, since they spend a majority of their day walking back and forth across her computer keyboard. They probably generate more words per day than she does, but who can read cat gibberish?
