Julie is a children's book author, born and raised in west Texas. Surrounded by the ranching heritage, she felt drawn to share this way of life through the adventures of a thoughtful little jackrabbit named Hitchin' Post.
Hitchin' Post marks Julie's debut into the world of children's literature. What began as a fun, creative project with her mother, Carolyn Altman, soon developed into her first completed children's book. Carolyn is the illustrator of the bright and cheerful images found in Hitchin' Post, which no doubt bring to life the adventures of this caring and lovable jackrabbit.
Hitchin' Post is the 2017 Reader's Favorite Gold Medal recipient in the children' general genre.
Julie is currently working on a follow-up to Hitchin' Post, to be released later this year.
Meet this long-eared, cowboy jackrabbit named Hitchin' Post. Better known to all of his cowboy friends as "Hitch". Hitch loves his ranch and his cowboy friends, and learns that through life's ups and downs, friendships and the little things in life is really all he needs to feel rich.
