I’m Julia, and I write speculative fiction with a romantic twist. My writing is influenced by my love of historical eras and fondness for imagining life on Earth after a blank slate. When not writing, I enjoy hiking and exploring (especially in my native state of Colorado and adopted state of Florida), reading historical fiction and YA fantasy, and watching entirely too much television (especially period dramas!) I live in Florida with my husband and zoo of rescue animals. My debut novel, Ashes Swept, was released in 2017.
