Julia has always been passionate about the written word, and has literally been writing and editing since she could read –- long before she received her B.A. in English -- but she didn’t consider it for a career until she fell in love with the English department after trying out two other majors first (vocal music and communications). She journeyed through college both reading and writing about some of the best literature ever written, and getting graded for it — a dream come true!
All the while she moderated an IRC chatroom where she met the man who would later become her husband. Four years and a bachelor’s degree later she graduated and got married, began freelancing as a writer, editor, and moderator not long after, and has been doing it ever since!
A native of New York and Central Florida, Julia currently resides outside SW Houston, Texas, with her incredible husband and their two goofy cats. Her hobbies include singing, seeing Broadway musicals
, reading, geocaching, scrapbooking, drinking tea, watching movies, and spending time with her husband and family & friends.Other Web sites of Julia's:
