About Me

Hola, gente!

I figured it was time to write a new about me page, because I no longer feel like a “young writer armed with laptop, pen, and paper and no one set-in-stone goal,” my nephew no longer growls in his playpen, and my sweet lab Matthew died a while ago.

So! New me page.

I’m still Julie Gabrielle Anne, and my laptop Nightwing and I conspire together late at night or around midday in front of the television with The Mentalist to write novels about blood feuds, Shakespeare retellings, gymnastics, cyborgs, and BA heroines who love chocolate, horses, and the color purple.

I’ve been writing since I was an annoying little girl. I like writing novels best of all, but I’m not a horrible poet or essayist, and I also write short stories that oftentimes turn into novellas because I’m long-winded.

If I’m not writing you won’t be able to find me, because I’ll be hiding somewhere with a good book (under a bed works well) or buried under mountains of homework in my dorm at Austin Peay State University. If you can’t not find me (no, that’s not a typo) in those places, you are guaranteed to find me in search of food, hugging one of my wonderful horses (not mine, really; I volunteer at a therapy stable), or hanging with my friends and family.

California is my birth stage, but I’m a Tennessee girl now. I say y’all and am proud of it.

Besides writing, I love gymnastics. I’m an avid reader and I love music of all kinds. Except country. I’m a huge movie fan and I’ll watch Pirates of the Caribbean, the Bourne Trilogy, and Inside Man all day long. I also enjoy looking up words in other languages and playing badminton with my siblings. That is utterly hilarious, as we all run around swinging our rackets and hitting nothing.

Some other things about me: I believe in God. I’m a proud 2010 graduate. I wear a size 11 1/2 sneaker. My birthday is in August and my birthstone is the peridot. I like Justin Bieber’s music and do not approve of haters. My favorite color is purple. My greatest fear is of a little kid slamming their finger in a door, I kid you not. I’ve pet a baby lynx. I named the anaconda, the one at the Nashville Zoo, Gabrielle. My favorite food is fried pork chops/chicken and barbecued ribs. I’m an editor for Reuts Publications. When I graduate college, I’ll be too young to toast with champagne, and that makes me sad.

That’s all there is to me!

    • I don’t mind you asking at all. I kind of shy away from stereotypes where religion is concerned. Basically, I believe in heaven, hell, Jesus, the resurrection, good angels and fallen angels and being born again – all that fun stuff. :)

  1. Hi, I was on inkpop the other day when I stumbled upon your story, snow. Please don’t get upset that I’m sending this message through this website, for my inkpop account is no longer working correctly. I would just like to tell you that I love that story! It was so orginal. I’m glad I read it. Are you planing on adding more to the story?I hope you are. :)I’m sorry for sending this to you through a comment oh here, instead of a comment on your story snow. Thank you for your time. :)

    • Hey, Kayla! I’m glad you loved it – and of course I’m not upset you sent me a message on here! I’m not sure what’s going to happen with Snow. I started writing it with the intention of making it a full-length novel, but I’m kind of fond of it as a longish short story, too. Whatever I end up doing with it, I’ll try to keep you updated on here! :D

  3. You are from Tennessee too? No way! i live in Tennessee, I’m not a hick either, and I spend my time on the lake too! Well in the summer I do, but then again it is like 60 degrees today and is going to be 70 sometime in the coming days.

    • Hey, fellow Tennesseean! I absolutely love spending hot days on the lake. I went water-skiing for the first time last year and had the time of my life. I faceplanted a couple of times, too! Haha.

      • I remember doing that like two or three summers ago and yeah I had the same experience. Only wakeboarding hurt a lot worse and i’m still struggling with it. Hopefully this summer will be the year!

  4. Gabby! (If you don’t mind me calling you that… xD)
    There’s a new Inkpop!
    It’s called Hexbound, and basically an ex-inkie was sad Inkpop shut down, and so he made another website replicating it.
    It was only recently published, so it’s still new/doesn’t have many projects.
    But you can check it out:
