Inspired by her 14-year-old daughter’s Breakfast Club T-shirt, first time author, Julie Ives, woke up one morning finding herself putting pencil to paper, furiously writing down the story of Welcome to Welby Island that was gaining steam in her head. She could imagine the characters and the setting but needed to bring them to life through the written word. She doesn’t equate herself to any one character but hints that there just may be a little of her in each of them.
Julie was born in New Jersey, attended high school in Huntington NY, and went onto college in Connecticut, where she met her husband Howie and married in 1993. However, the sandy beaches of the Sunshine State called to them in 2000, where they live with their daughter, Maggie.
