Julie has been writing her thoughts and fancies since she was a teen. "It is a marvelous way to empty your brain, for the moment," Prescott relays.
When she became a single parent at the age of 27, Prescott knew there had to be help available, besides Dr. Spock's book.

Prescott asked others to help answer questions she had when the children were young, but now the children were grown. Over 100 former single parents with young children who were now adults, answered her questions and the series: Single Parent Wisdom: If only I knew then what I know now...
