Julie Rieman Duck
Sometimes it takes a swift kick to start doing what you love. For Julie Rieman Duck, it was more like a full body slam. A health scare and loss of her editing job put Julie square in front of a choice: Do what I love, or do nothing? The decision to write again after 20 years of shelving her voice brought about edgy young adult novels - A Place In This Life, SWELL and Little Rooms.
Today, Julie bounces between copywriting by day, fiction writing by night and never compromising her love for the written word.

I was born and named, but I wasn’t supposed to make it. I was loved and claimed, but still, I wasn’t supposed to make it. I was born In West Philadelphia to a seventeen year old girl who had epilepsy, and a father who had a drug, and alcohol addiction. My mother only lived eight months after I was born. I never knew her, nor could I remember seeing her face. Yet, I found myself crying for her many nights. This void in my life was supposed to destroy me, and I wasn’t supposed to make it.
It was March 5, 1975 when my mother died in her sleep. You can say that my father died that day also, because he was the one who found my mother in her forever rest. He was so hurt and depressed. Drugs and alcoh ... read more

Like many my age, I grew up watching Perry Mason on television. He was a lawyer who always won the case at the very end of the show with a “surprise” witness. From that show’s inspiration, we’d often have a trial in my house after dinners. Dad was always the judge and my sister was usually my witness. As far back as I can remember I wanted to be an attorney and fight for people.
Throughout my school years, I took on every argument and every debate. I read every book about great lawyers and famous trials I could find.
I began my practice of law in 1980 and have rejoiced every day since, because every day I get to help somebody. I passed the Bar exam and went into practice for myself, and I took on case ... read more

I live in Zeeland, Michigan where half of the year is winter and other, much shorter half, is summer. Yippy summer! It’s a wonderful place to live as long as you own a four wheel drive vehicle and you happen to get a kick out of measuring the snow fall in feet rather than inches. I write paranormal romance because I love to explore and manipulate the limitless possibilities of the genre. To be completely honest, I’m also very fond of taking a totally hot, powerful immortal hero and using a strong, confident, beautiful heroine to turn his world upside down and make him fight like hell for a victory that seems impossible to achieve. Some might call it torture. I call it entertainment and character building. R ... read more

I was born in the tiny town of Campbell River, B.C. and grew up a child of missionary parents in East Africa. From an early age I discovered a love of reading and shortly thereafter discovered a joy and talent for writing. By the time I reached high school I was writing for fun and slowly getting interested in both reading and writing romance. My first published novel was written back in 2009 and it took a little convincing to try getting it published. I live in Ontario with my husband, young daughter and two cats. I love Canada. Because of my love for this great country, most of my stories are based here.
