Julie Frayn pens award-winning novels and short stories that pack a punch. And a few stabs. When not working or writing, Julie spend as much time as possible with her babies. Well, they’re grown adults now, but they still think she’s cool. Right kids? Right? Hello?

In grade school, Julie was a math whiz, loved to write stories and poems in English class, and had an artistic flair for pencil drawings and pen and ink pointillism. When it came time to choose a career, she was torn between three loves. Her artistic brain ached to create. But her practical side, and the need to eat, won out. She devoted her career to numbers. She counts beans by day, but still revels in the written word.

So glad you loved the novel. I struggled with those scenes at first, often having to walk away from the computer and come back later. But as I continued to write, it became easier. It was clear that by the end, though the subject matter still bothered me given the brutality she faced, writing it didn't. Reminded me of the frog in hot water analogy. If you drop him into boiling water he jumps out, if you put him in cool water and heat it slowly, he'll boil to death. That is sort of how abusers slowly hook their victims into believing that behaviour is normal. Very eye-opening. Thanks for the question! :)(less)
