#1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn loves to dispel the myth that smart women don't read (or write) romance, and in 2001 she did so in grand style, competing on the the game show The Weakest Link and walking away with the $79,000 jackpot.

Robert Sherriff Julia, can you please help I have only been writing for the last three years. I was also sexually abused as a 7 yr old. Nobody's Home then I have written a children's book Dirkbell. I have just finished another Detective Crow New York New York just waiting to get published then I have started another book My Child Is an Alien.
I have just retired I am 64 my wife's name is Carol I have 6 children 10 grandchildren another in March. Plus two great-grandchildren. How do I get my books out there? I am trying to raise money All money raised goes to,
ADELAIDE HOSPITAL CHILDRENS WARD (leukemia)

https://www.fishpond.com.au/Books/Nob...
Please read this. Don't run away. This book is about ("Domestic abuse") and ('Sexual Abuse") Most people don't want to talk about it? You say taboo you say "NO" too hard subject.
It entitles everyone to be brought up in a safe and secure environment, free from violence, abuse, and cruelty. It is one of the fundamental rights of anyone brought into the world by parents who should love and care for them primarily.
But for Robert Sherriff, it wasn’t like that. First behind the closed doors of an ordinary family home and then in the dark recesses of a society that was ill-equipped to deal with the trauma and suffering he experienced, Robert found that mercy was just a dream.

Dirkbell the squirrel lives at the top of a huge oak tree near the sea, with his wife and their twin babies. Every day he scampers around the woods, collecting enough food for his family.
He is friendly with the mice family who owns the bakery at the foot of the tree but when Cooper, a brown terrier who lives nearby, scares off Tom the cat, then Cooper takes matters into his own hands.
Can he persuade Cooper to mend his ways? Will Tom come back if he does? It’s up to Cooper to save the day and the peace and quiet of his neighbourhood by convincing the unruly pup to value friendship and to be considerate towards others.

Feby Thank you for adding me, Mrs. Quinn. I adore your book. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is one of my favorite :)


Laurie Hi Julia,
I am absolutely in love with your books! Every one of them I read captured my attention and made me wish that I was really living in old days London. They were fun and witty, my favorites had to be the Duke and I, and Everything and the Moon. Most of them I read I gave five stars because they had so many different characters with different personality's. It was just so much fun reading your work.
Thank you for your genius books!
Laurie
