I’m Julie, a writer and the host of StoryADay.org – a creative writing challenge that happens each May (and yes, you’re invited).

I write articles and courses to help other writers get their creative groove on, and I speak to writers’ groups and conferences about creativity, short story writing, self- and e-publishing, and social media. Want me to speak to your group? Contact me.

This is my sandbox blog, where I share what I learn about writing and other stuff about my life as a human, a mother, an ex-pat, a cook, a gardener, a knitter, and all the rest. (I don’t talk about being a wife much, because my husband’s a bit shy.)
