Today Lovely Books Shines The Author Spotlight On…
Julie is a southern California native, a fan of a really good story (preferably a romance with a happily ever after), really good pie (preferably pumpkin)and copious amounts of coffee (preferably Folgers). She has always enjoyed writing and at one time thought she might be a singer/songwriter. The ‘writer’ part is that one that stuck. Julie is obsessed with Pi…the equation and the food. She’s allergic to cats, cantaloupe and hates mushrooms. So if you ever want to give her a gift, those are out for sure. She currently lives with her romance hero husband and two boys in Melbourne, Australia.

When I was a boy, I met a girl.
She didn’t know it then, but…
She changed me.
Now…..I am a man.
A man who is broken by the stories of the women who come to me.
They are my birds with broken wings.
I help them heal, help them to make them strong, so they can fly free.
Lark changed me. Loved Me. Made Me Strong.
With her, I am free.
To the girl of the past.
To the girl of my present.
And, the girl of my future.
