Julie Glover is a city girl from the Lone Star State. She owns both go-go boots and cowboy boots, has been to Broadway shows and rodeos, enjoys chateaubriand and rattlesnake sausage, and listens to Led Zeppelin and Rascal Flatts.
Raised on Nancy Drew and Laura Ingalls Wilder, she spent much of her childhood making up stories in her head. Inspired by tough-minded women and her own stubborn will, Julie’s imaginary damsels were never in deep distress: They were able to vanquish the dragons themselves and still get the happily-ever-after prince.
After Hurricane Ike sent her family to evacuate in 2008, Julie started putting her story ideas on paper. With a laptop and time on her hands, she began writing the first novel—a mystery, Grace & Fire, which she hopes to publish soon.
Currently, Julie is working on young adult fiction, with three projects at various stages–The Year of Firsts, a MG contemporary; Sharing Hunter, a YA contemporary; and Breaking the Commandments, a YA mystery.
Julie loves words, lyrics, accents, sarcasm, idioms, proverbs, and all things language – even punctuation and grammar. She blogs twice a week on her website, Threading the Labyrinth. On Amazing Words Wednesday, she posts about word etymology, fun facts, and navigating the English language and on Scarlet Thread Sunday, she highlights a thread of something learned in the labyrinth of life and posts her ROW80 updates. She lives with a supportive husband and two active sons in Friendswood, Texas.
