Julie has a Master's in Liberal Studies in Arts and Culture with a Creative Writing Specialty at the University of Denver. She earned her BA in Communication graduating Magna Cum Laude also from the University of Denver.
When she isn't working, reading, or writing, she likes to watch movies and go camping.
She happily shares her life with her husband of over twenty-years. The empty-nest couple enjoy spending as much time as they can with their sons.
Julie does her best to live by the mantra: never let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.

Interviews and analysis found that there were twenty identifiable attributes for writers that go beyond just writing and confirm that the simple act of writing does not make one a writer.
