Julie is passionate about telling stories that capture the human experience. Her idea for How People Get Their Politics was more than a decade in the making while she witnessed the United States reach unsustainable levels of division. She is also the author of Murphy's Miracle: One Dog's Wild Journey, a story inspired by the miraculous return of a beloved golden retriever who spent two years lost in the Sierra Wilderness.
Julie lives in Northern California with her husband and four children. She holds a degree in English from the University of California, Berkeley and is a credentialed high school English teacher.
