10 Fun Facts

  1. "Julie" is a nickname. My full name is "Juliana"  -- but no one calls me that except my mother, mostly when she's mad at me.
  2. I have a giant, blond goldendoodle named Scout, who I named after my favorite character in Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. 
  3. I grew up in the smallest town in the state of Massachusetts. It's essentially a one-square-mile sandbar they decided to build houses on.
  4. I was once stung by a scorpion. 
  5. I am a certified sailing instructor. My life dream is to quite literally sail off into the sunset and live in the BVI.
  6. I am suuuuuuper blind without my contacts/glasses. Seriously, it's terrible. And somewhat comical. (But mostly terrible.)
  7. My favorite movie is Gone With The Wind. I've seen it so many times, I've honestly lost count. 
  8. I don't believe in love.
  9. My favorite genre (to read) is fantasy. If someone put a gun to my head and made me pick my all time favorite standalone book, I'd wind up dead. Buuuut as far as series go... For Urban Fantasy, my favorite is easily Karen Marie Moning's Fever series, and for Historical Fantasy, it's Juliet Marillier's Sevenwaters series.
  10. Oh, yeah, #8 is a blatant lie. (Most of the time.)
