Julianna Douglas

Biography

For as long as I can remember, I've been a hopeless romantic and believer in fairy tales. Even as a little girl, my fondest dream was to find a Prince Charming who would sweep me off my feet. I'm happy to say that I did realize that dream and have been married to him for nineteen years.

With that being the case, it's not too surprising that I've been obsessed with romance novels since my teens. I read virtually every sub-genre of romance and just can't get enough of them. Occasionally, over the years, people who know my passion for reading have asked if I would ever write a book. In spite of having a vivid imagination and often making up stories in my head to entertain myself, my answer was always an emphatic 'no'. Perhaps it was because I didn't care much for writing in school, but I never in my wildest dreams ever pictured myself as a writer.

Now, here I am years later, eating my words. I truly feel like I've found my life's passion. Nearly every time I sit down to write, I feel energized and excited to be creating something new. I think it's because I'm no longer boxed in like I was with school writing assignments and can give my creative side free rein. I can't wait to write the next sentence, the next page, the next chapter, the next book. The muses keep the ideas flowing faster than I can put them on the page and my characters have become a living, breathing part of my life. Now, my fondest wish is that my readers come to love my characters and stories every bit as much as I've loved creating them.

I currently live in hot, sunny Phoenix, Arizona with my wonderful husband who is also my writing cheerleader and technical guru, our two teenage children (one boy, one girl), Tundra, our Husky/Great Pyrenees mix dog, and our three cats, Lucy, Misty and Mackenzie. When I'm not reading or writing, I can usually be found hanging out on GoodReads, surfing the web, watching TV or movies, book shopping, or feeding my insatiable thirst for knowledge. I also run the book review website, The Hope Chest Reviews.
