Julie Trettel is a full time Systems Administrator, Wife, Mother of four, and part time Musician and Writer. She resides in Richmond, VA and can often be found writing on the sidelines of a football field or swimming pool. She comes from a long line of story tellers and has a thousand stories running through her mind. Writing has always been a stress reliever and escape for her to manage the crazy demands of juggling time and schedules between work and an active family of six. In her “free time,” she enjoys traveling, reading, outdoor activities, and spending time with family and friends. Her husband, James, challenged her to write a book in one year. She took on that challenge – this is her first published work.
