About this author

To all my long-time GoodReads friends, I'm the GoodReads user formerly known as Julie (mom2lnb).;-)

I'm 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 report I've been married to him for twenty years. Although I've been an avid reader since I was two years old, I never envisioned myself as a writer until five years ago. Now I feel like I've finally found my life's passion. The muses keep the ideas flowing faster than I can put them on the page. I hope that my readers will 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 husband, our two teenage

“There is a light in this world, a healing spirit more powerful than any darkness we may encounter. We sometimes lose sight of this force when there is suffering, too much pain. Then suddenly, the spirit will emerge through the lives of ordinary people who hear a call and answer in extraordinary ways.”

Yes, we did. We've actually had her since the summer, and I finally got around to downloading the pics into my computer. She a little bigger than my new profile pic now, but still pretty cute. I'm using her as my wallpaper at the moment too. Now I just need to post some pictures of my other cat and my dog.:-)

Mahlet Hey Julie!

I think I read somewhere that JR Ward is afraid to fly, so she tends to stick to this region (she came within 15 minutes of my home to sign Covet last year). I was out of town, so a girlfriend - who had never read a single PNR - went on my behalf. She reported back that Ward was quite a character. One of the readers said, "I've just discovered your books!"...and Ward responded, "Well, it's about f@#king time!" :)

There are several book signing Q&A sessions posted on YouTube from the Covet promotion where Ward gives out hints on where the series is going (who's pairing up next...will Blay&Quinn be together?..that kind of stuff). Also, I read somewhere that Ward does virtual book signings since she won't fly? I'm not sure what it entails, but you end of with a signed book :)




Adrienne Thanks for the friends invite , look forward to chatting about bookos with you:)

LOL! Actually, I've been answering them for a while. Just catching up with the newest ones tonight. They certainly are never-ending and the repetitive ones are always-annoying.;-) The unique ones are rare gems.
