I am a lover of wine, swear words and alone time. I usually only have time for one of the three so please excuse my language.


Julie has a Masters degree in Psychology, which has proved useless in trying to understand her teenaged daughter. She has the attention span of a gnat, zero sense of direction and loses at least 3 things every day. Except for a minor situation at a county fair, her children are not on the short list of items she’s lost. She is extremely proud of this. You can find her writing on Facebook or Twitter. She has been published on Washington Post, Babble, McSweeney’s, Scary Mommy, and Huffington Post, among others.
