Her book, A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS hit bookstores in October 2013, and is based on her two popular and critically-acclaimed storybook apps for the iPad -- A TROOP IS A GROUP OF MONKEYS and A SHIVER OF SHARKS.

Popular Answered Questions

Julie Hedlund I never get writer's block. I get writer's procrastination. To overcome I simply force myself into my chair and start writing.

Hi Vivian,

This is a great question, and the answer is that I don't plan for balance day by day. Instead, I aim for balance in a week or a month. Some days my family and home may require more of my time than anything else. When I'm in a creative "spurt," I ignore some of my other career responsibilities and write as much as I can while the muse is with me. Some days I don't write at all because I have to attend to the business side of things. So instead of killing myself trying to balance each day, I just try to make sure everything gets my attention over a span of time. I've tried imposing more rigid schedules and routines on myself, but it never works. I guess I just don't have the kind of personality that lends itself to routine. :-)

I hope this response answers your question. Thank you for asking!(less)

Julie Hedlund and 8 other people liked Kaethe's review of Triangle:
Triangle by Mac Barnett
"Triangle - Mac Barnett, Jon Klassen  Set amidst a dystopian hellscape of repetition and conformity, Barnett and Klassen's story evokes a quiet terror in the unwary reader. Look into Triangle's mad, staring, eyes and see the sort of dread that come..." Read more of this review »

"A great book! The author relays the complex world of sibling and family relationships very well and displays the courage to try to sort it all out. I ate this book up.

A lovely tale full of warmth. Highly recommend."
