We are all very glad you came here to JBR.
Can you tell us a little about yourself? 
 Hi Julie, I’m very excited to be here with you all!
I’m a thirty-something-something mother of 2 who likes to read a lot and write even more. I do have a day job which allows me to put food on the table so for that I am thankful. I live in Europe with my family and travelling has always been my greatest passion. 

What genres do you write?
I mainly write erotica although I’m working on a novel that is literary fiction. This current series is Paranormal however, my WIPs are not. So, to answer your question as honestly as I can, I’m not sure I have a genre. Usually while I’m driving or taking a shower, I’ll get an idea that won’t leave me alone and it turns into a story. 

As a reader I love all genres but my followers want to know what to except from your books. Action, adventure, romance, sex, magic??
Hahaha, well, you can expect sex, for sure. The Underdogs of the Arena has all kinds of otherworldly creatures. Warewolves, shifter, vampires and soon to be witches in Book 3. 

Who is your favorite character(s) from your books?
Oh, that’s a difficult question. Ellen is definitely my favourite female. She’s feisty and fearless. She also has a less than stellar vocabulary. Stones…well, he’s just deliciously flawed. He’s been hurt and now needs help thawing out the walls around his heart. 

What is your newest release? Can you tell us a little about it?
Stone Cold is book 2 of the Underdogs of the Arena Series. Jared Stones is a kick boxing coach and has brought Ellen to her Light Weight championship. He has spent the last two years trying to forget Sloane, the female he loved more than anything. In book 2, Sloane returns to visit Ellen, her best friend and well…Stones is just a little irked. 

What about future projects? any hints?
Yes, many many things going on. First, Book 3 of the series will be Sloane’s brother Kyle. He’s actually a baddy in book two so we’ll get to see why and see the change in him. I’m also working, in collaboration with JC Wells, on a series that revolves around a Columbian Drug Ring in California. Alejandro is tortured yet hides it behind a mask of all-cocky, all-consuming male pride. There is also a stand-alone bringing head to head a environmental activist and a female lawyer paid to bring him down. There is also another paranormal series but this one will be a full novel..I won’t be able to fit it in a short story. Witches and Wizards and parallel worlds J 

Can you give aspiring authors any advice?
Write every day. Even if you think you have nothing to say. Read every day. Do research for your stories and don’t hesitate in speaking with people who have been in your characters’ shoes. But most of all, write from the heart and not because there is a trend happening. Who knows, maybe your quirky, eccentric idea will BE the next trend. 

How about some "fun" personal stuff!
What book have they read that touched you deeply? and why? (yours or someone elses)
I have recently read Consequences by Aleatha Romig and…well, it’s just WOW! I highly recommend it. It’s not your typical love story, in fact, there are times where you actually do not think it is a love story. Absolutely fantastic piece of work. 

Favorite past time activity?
Reading. Definitely.
a favorite book or author you can recommend (not your own)?and WHY?
Oh wow. This has got to be the most difficult question ever asked. My favorite authors vary with my passing moods. I’m a great fan of John Grishman and in a different style, Paul Auster. LOVE Paul Auster. I read “Leviathan” in two days and when I finished it, I went back to the beginning to read it again. Amazing author! In the Romance genre, I’m a great fan of Lorelei James. I started with the Rough Riders Series and when I had to wait for her next books to come out, I started reading everything else she wrote. She is a truly talented author with a captivating narrative voice and great, great dialogues. Oh, and did I mention her men are…incredibly sexy? 

Favorite place to travel to?
Let’s see… Corsica would be my number 1 destination. It is an island off the coast of France and Italy in the center of the Mediterranean Sea. The culture is its own with legends and traditions only found on that small piece of land. The high mountains fall steeply onto ragged beaches that are often times deserted which is perfect when seeking out a peaceful day in the sun. The waters vary from the crystal turquoise of the shallow ends to the rich dark blue of the deep seas. With a thousand kilometers of coastal shores, there are no two places alike. It is truly the most beautiful place I have ever seen. My second favorite destinations would be a tie between the southern tip of Japan and the Bavarian Region of Germany. 

What kind of music do you listen too?
Ah, music! Like books, I have eclectic tastes. My all-time favorite band that stirs things inside me from the memories it procures would be Dave Matthews Band. But I also love to dance around to Maroon 5 because really? Who doesn’t love a man with moves like Jagger? Of course, the 80’s have left their mark on me as well with Depeche Mode, The Cure etc… And then, hail to the classics of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Pink Floyd, Led Zep, The Eagles. Can’t get enough. 

And finally where can we find your books?(please include any links you want including buy links)
