About Julianna Douglas
For as long as I can remember, I've been a hopeless romantic and believer in fairy tales. Even as a little girl, my fondest dream was to find a Prince Charming who would sweep me off my feet. I'm happy to say that I did realize that dream and have been married to him for twenty-three years.
With that being the case, it's not too surprising that I've been obsessed with romance novels since my teens. I read virtually every sub-genre of romance and just can't get enough of them. Occasionally, over the years, people who know my passion for reading have asked if I would ever write a book. In spite of having a vivid imagination and often making up stories in my head to entertain myself, my answer was always an emphatic 'no'. Perhaps it was because I didn't care much for writing in school, but I never in my wildest dreams ever pictured myself as a writer.
Now, here I am years later, eating my words. I truly feel like I've found my life's passion. Nearly every time I sit down to write, I feel energized and excited to be creating something new. I think it's because I'm no longer boxed in like I was with school writing assignments and can give my creative side free rein. I can't wait to write the next sentence, the next page, the next chapter, the next book. The muses keep the ideas flowing faster than I can put them on the page and my characters have become a living, breathing part of my life. Now, my fondest wish is that my readers come to love my characters and stories every bit as much as I've loved creating them.
I currently live in hot, sunny Phoenix, Arizona with my wonderful husband who is also my writing cheerleader and technical guru, our two children (an adult son and a teenage daughter), Tundra, our Husky/Great Pyrenees mix dog, and our two cats, Lucy and Emilie. When I'm not reading or writing, I can usually be found hanging out on GoodReads, surfing the web, watching TV or movies, book shopping, or feeding my insatiable thirst for knowledge. I also run the book review website, The Hope Chest Reviews.
