Hello, Lorraine. How are you doing?
Hi, Julie! I’m doing fine, busy, but fine. J

Welcome to Julie’s Book Review. We are thrilled to have you on the site.

Thank you. It’s great to be here.

I am an avid reader and I always wonder how did they come up with that story? Did you have any special inspiration for your first story?

The first contemporary romance I wrote was Love on the Rocks, recently released from Breathless Press. My main inspiration was in wanting to type something besides typing tests and mundane drills. I was on medical leave for an amputated thumb and desperately trying to get the flexibility back in that hand. I saw an ad about The Rocks at Hopewell Cape, a local tourist attraction. It sparked an idea and I ran with it, finishing the manuscript seven weeks later.



What genres do you like to read personally? Any others you would like to explore as a writer?

I write what I love to read, romantic suspense. I’ve also written historical, inspirational, sweet romance, a medical romance, and a witch story, but my main love is romantic suspense.



As a writer do you have any authors you look up to or even any that have helped you along? Who do you follow and read when not writing books?

Oh golly! There are too many to name. I love so many authors and have made numerous online friends to whom I can reach out for info or a brainstorming session. I have a vast collection of books, both print and ebooks, and what I’m reading depends on my mood at any given time. 

 

Of your published books out, is there a  favorite? Favorite scene? Favorite Character?
Would you want to meet that character in real life?

Tough question, Julie!
Zakia and the Cowboy and Blessed Homecoming have both received their silver stars on Are, so I’m proud of those two babies for sure.



Favorite Scene? 
 Jeesh, girl! You don’t make this easy. LOL The following scene is a short peek at my current work in progress, Cameron’s Quest, Book 5 in my Thunder Creek Ranch series with Evernight.


When Cam returned with the last of their cases, the girls were nowhere in sight. They’d removed their coats and boots, making use of the coat rack behind the door and lining their boots up neatly on the rubber mat. An eruption of giggles drew his glance to the loft and there were his daughters, standing and looking into the master bedroom.
Cam shucked his boots and coat and joined them upstairs. “What’s so funny?”
“Uh, we were just laughing at Mama. She saw your huge bed and her feet took flight,” said Lynne.
“Yeah, she fairly flew and landed on top with a big bounce.” Rena looked almost stunned by her mother’s antics, as did Lynne and Abby.
“Well, she’s never had a proper bed. We’ve all had singles,” admitted Abby, almost apologetic for her mother’s behavior.
Cam stepped into the room to see Lacey sitting primly at the edge of the bed, her cheeks flushed and rosy with embarrassment. He walked closer and leaned over to whisper in her ear. “Anytime you want that bed to bounce, call me. We’ll rock it together.” He pulled back to discover her cheeks an even darker red, her eyes lit with…desire?
“That’s a deal, cowboy.”
Cam’s surprise must have shown on his face for she giggled as she pushed to her feet.
“So, what are the sleeping arrangements?” Hot color crept into her already heated cheeks. Oh, shit! What a bloody fool I am. Why am I always putting my foot in it around this man?
