I've been writing since I could hold a crayon and probably made up stories in my head long before that. I was born in California and have lived all over the U.S., but I admit I'm partial to places with a good beach.

I hold a degree in English with a minor in psychology, which means I'm imagining what goes on in your head and putting it into my next book.

Just kidding.

Maybe...

I'm married to a guy you may call the big hairy man, and together we have two daughters who just might be crazier and more sarcastic than I am. We live near the Great Salt Lake where I spend my time playing chauffeur to the kids, writing, and trying to convince the dog not to shed on my couch.

Criticism is "This book sucks" or "I don't like this character." Critique frames problems you don't see in your own story because you're so close to it and offers ways to fix it. Good and honest critique will always help you grow as a writer.(less)
Juli Caldwell I just do. For me, it's like breathing. Some people paint or make music or play sports naturally. Writing has always been the thing I do.

I wanted to like this book. The concept is intriguing but the delivery falls flat. It's mostly stream of consciousness narrative from Jane's perspective. The author has created some interesting characters, but we don't see much of them in favor of sp ...more

Well researched with a really compelling story of survival. My dad gave me this book when I was in a horrible awkward phase and I hated myself. He told me I reminded him of Ayla--tall, blonde, a total misfit, stronger than she realized, a survivor. D ...more

So, so good. Murder mystery at its finest. As a bonus, I picked up a secondhand hard cover, and it contained a newspaper clipping of one of the local characters featured in the novel. It made the writing so much more vivid for me. This one is a read- ...more

“Sisters share a bond that no one can explain. They understand each other in a way not even girl friends can approach. Secrets, heartbreaks, codes, history, delights, and sheer happiness can be shared in a simple glance between sisters. Many have attempted to decipher the language between sisters, and many have failed. sisters everywhere understand the importance of the bond and respect the relationship in other sisters. There is nothing more prized to a women than the secrets she shares with her sisters.”
Juli Caldwell, Beyond Perfection
