Julie's Books

Remember my 'Taste of Life' cookbooks? Perhaps you're asking how does a healthy-eating cookbook author write 22 cookbooks, sell 2.2 million copies, over 19 years, and then suddenly start writing her memoir and then a cross over between fiction and non-fiction, based on real life events!

I know my memoir and debut novel will surprise many, but that's the way it should be. With the gift of years, your life changes. You learn. You grow. Add the odd life crisis, twists and turns you never expected, the loss of loved ones, and of course the redefining of self is inevitable.

A Memoir

The Book Club Edition  




... when you follow the whispers of your heart you will find your way ...


... when a person really desires something, the whole universe will conspire to help that person realize their dream ...
