what Julia writes about

In my opinion, you are either a writer or you are not. If you are a writer, you don't want to limit yourself to one form of writing, just like a true bookworm wouldn't limit himself to only one genre.
My forte is definitely sci-fi, fantasy and mystery, but the first books that got published were stories for children. I have projects in the making which are non-fiction and tailored specifically to be of use as an ebook only.
To say it with the words of Vincent van Gogh: "Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well."

Julia's background

Julia lives in Franconia, a very beautiful region in Bavaria, Southern Germany, which is renowned for its good food and wine and its medieval castles. Her home is in a little village on the countryside, where she lives with her husband and her two black cats.
She was born in December 1974 in Nuremberg in Bavaria as the only daughter of two antique dealers, who also traded with antique books and of course also read them. Hence, Julia developed a deep interest in books even before she was able to read herself.
As soon as she had learned how to read, she made it her main past time, reading everything that fell into her hands, even old German script, antique maps and documentary books, which changed her perception of the world and her goals in life in a profound way.
Being brought up bilingual, she spent one year at college in Brighton, UK, when she was 18. She formed a deep connection then with the British Islands, their history and mythology and from that point on, she read all books in English, starting with all Anne McCaffrey and Jane Austen books.
She then started her career in IT and later switched to Sales and Marketing in the IT sector, working in various European cities including Edinburgh, Amsterdam and of course in Germany.
Julia started writing very early in her life. Until the age of 37 she wrote many different texts in English and German and took part in interactive written roleplaying games with other English native speakers. She also started a few books in German language, but was never able to complete them.
Then she took part in an English short story contest, which she won, albeit being the only non-native author. That gave her the courage to start over with one of her several books, but this time in English language, which proved to be the missing link that set her off. To this day she is not able to explain the strange and deep affinity to everything that is British, but yet again, this was what enabled the next step on her way.
Being strongly influenced by bestselling authors like Anne McCaffrey, Piers Anthony, David Eddings, Gena Showalter, Patricia Briggs, Christopher Dawes and Henry Lincoln, she still didn`t think her work would live up to a standard that would fascinate a large audience.
In the end it was her friendship to the British authors Henry Lincoln and Christopher Dawes and both of their invaluable advice and encouragement and all the positive feedback from her British friends that prompted her to get her work published.
Random candid:
