Julie Murphy lives in North Texas with her supportive husband, her adoring dog, and her tolerating cats. Julie is now a full-time writer after several excellent years in the library sector. She can be found watching made-for-TV movies, seeking for the ideal slice of cheese pizza, and planning her next great trip adventure when she's not writing or reliving her reference desk glory days. Dumplin' (now a Netflix feature), Puddin', Ramona Blue, and Side Effects May Vary are among her other works for young adults. Julie's website is www.juliemurphywrites.com.
