Julie self-published her first book, Shoot Down the Wendy Bird: A Collection of Flash Fiction & Poetry in January 2016 and is currently working on a new adult fantasy novel. She graduated with a degree in Psychology from Cabrini College.

If she's not reading she's probably filing, editing, or responding to comments on her quickly growing BookTube channel Pages & Pens (linked in bio). If you are looking for a refined and calm mannered author bio, or BookTube channel, you're in the wrong place. She loves giving colorful commentary and her unique view on books, authors, book hauls, and book tags.

Julie's a huge nerd for anything YA Lit, LOTR, and Harry Potter. She's got a soft spot for awful SyFy movies (honestly, they're SO bad they're

Not every day will produce a masterpiece, or even something salvageable, but write anyway. When you skip writing it makes starting up again even harder. I sit down to write every single day, whether it's to work on a short story, a part of my novel, an article for my website, a newsletter, or an email to a friend. If you're writing, you're not blocked.

Also, be creative about how you look for inspiration. There are plenty of things that can inspire a story, a character, or a scene in your book that are all around you if you stay observant.

It's also important to note that some days, and some moods, lend themselves to certain types of writing best. If you're in a foul mood don't try writing your love scenes-write an angsty poem, instead. (less)

I absolutely am open to buddy reading, though my schedule and reading is a bit scattered right now. You can always message me through my YouTube channel, or comment on videos, and inquire about reading along with me. I love to buddy read through Instagram chats, Twitter DM's, or FB messages. (less)

When I found booktube midway through 2016 I knew immediately I had found ‘my people’. I felt immediately at home, like “meeting” somebody and just knowing you are going to get along. I am so happy that you feel the same way! My channel started a short 3 months ago and already I have over two thousand book-loving friends and I’m thankful to each and every one of you.


I’m so incredibly thrilled to...

Review to come-but this was a good one.
