writer, editor, teacher

Julia earned her MFA in creative nonfiction from the Stonecoast Program at the University of Southern Maine. She is working on a memoir about race, love, country, and the life, loss, and legacy of her father—a pulp fiction writer who worked under seven pseudonyms before his suicide in 1980. She lived in Zimbabwe, Botswana, and several US cities before settling in rural Massachusetts, where she now lives with her husband and sons.

Julia teaches writing workshops in Williamstown, works one-on-one with writers to shape and edit their book manuscripts, and advises students on college and fellowship application essays.
