was born and raised in a suburb of Denver, Colorado, and currently lives in Texas with her little cowboys. Before becoming a full-time author, she created a career as a barber/cosmetologist and lash technician, and she spent her nights writing. Now, when she's not creating amazing adventures under the sea and steamy seductions that will make your skin tingle, she is working hard at the men's grooming salon (to pay the bills), planning her farm and looking for property, brainstorming and solving problems, and she loves going to concerts. She is an excellent chef who enjoys cooking, but loves doing things outside like hiking, fishing, camping, and swimming. She enjoys everything about the water and swims anywhere she can. The big mountains gave her direction, but she is a wanderer. She is currently obsessed with making a farm, and she fantasizes about Alaska and living off grid. She is super deeply in love with a man named Jarrad (who personally hung the moon while catching air on his dirt bike), and Julie will always dote on him like a king.
