To all my long-time GoodReads friends, I'm the GoodReads user formerly known as Julie (mom2lnb).;-)

I'm a hopeless romantic and believer in fairy tales. Even as a little girl, my fondest dream was to find a Prince Charming who would sweep me off my feet. I'm happy to report I've been married to him for twenty years. Although I've been an avid reader since I was two years old, I never envisioned myself as a writer until five years ago.

I hope that my readers will love my characters and stories every bit as much as I've loved creating them.

It's so gratifying as a author to know that readers enjoy my work so much that they're eagerly waiting for the next book. My current WIP is coming along slowly but surely. It's more than halfway done. With any luck, I hope to have it finished before the end of 2016.(less)

Yes, we did. We've actually had her since the summer, and I finally got around to downloading the pics into my computer. She a little bigger than my new profile pic now, but still pretty cute. I'm using her as my wallpaper at the moment too. Now I just need to post some pictures of my other cat and my dog.:-)

Mahlet Hey Julie!

I think I read somewhere that JR Ward is afraid to fly, so she tends to stick to this region (she came within 15 minutes of my home to sign Covet last year). I was out of town, so a girlfriend - who had never read a single PNR - went on my behalf. She reported back that Ward was quite a character. One of the readers said, "I've just discovered your books!"...and Ward responded, "Well, it's about f@#king time!" :)

There are several book signing Q&A sessions posted on YouTube from the Covet promotion where Ward gives out hints on where the series is going (who's pairing up next...will Blay&Quinn be together?..that kind of stuff). Also, I read somewhere that Ward does virtual book signings since she won't fly? I'm not sure what it entails, but you end of with a signed book :)
