Since 10th Grade, Julie has been a writer. In high school and college, it was journalism. Her first job was writing business plans for high tech startups, and to this day she continues to write marketing and investor-related material. She is currently the senior director of product marketing at an educational tech company.
Though an avid reader from an early age, it wasn't until 2008 that Julie discovered her passion for writing fiction. She has since published over three dozen stories, many of which can be found online. Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in a variety of publications, including CRAFT, Jewish Women's Archive, The SFWP Quarterly, The MacGuffin, Salt Hill, Sixfold, The Coil, Ellipsis, MoonPark Review, Crab Orchard Review and others. THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH was the runner-up for the 2018 Press 53 Award for Short Fiction and is her debut collection. She is the founder of the Literary Modiin monthly author series, connecting readers and writers of Jewish books.
She holds a BA in political science from Barnard College, Columbia University, and a MA in international relations from Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs.
A native of Connecticut, she now lives in Modiin, Israel, with her husband and four children. When she’s not writing or working, she can be found reading, running, biking, swimming, birdwatching, baking or trying to grow things in her garden.
