been walking around with her nose stuck in a book since the age of
five. It didnít matter if she was walking to school or lacing up her
skating boots, reading has been her lifelong passion. After several
years in public relations, Internet sales and marketing, Julia was
able to merge her passion for the written word with her career when
she went to work for HarperCollins in online marketing. After several
years learning from her amazing colleagues and authors, Julia left the
publishing world to start a family. While raising her children Julia
worked for marketing agencies to build websites and brands for a wide
array of clients through web marketing. Then she returned to her
passion by becoming a copy editor. Julia was so pleased to join the L.
Perkins Agency in late 2012, to learn from her talented colleagues who
have done so much to further the careers of terrific authors. Julia is
thrilled to bring her experiences in publishing, copy editing and
marketing to her new clients as they look to forge the way in the
evolving world of e-publishing.
