Julie DainesGenre: YA Suspense, YA Fantasy, Romance
Julie Daines was born in Concord, Massachusetts, and was raised in Utah. She spent eighteen months living in London, where she studied and fell in love with English literature, sticky toffee pudding, and the mysterious guy who ran the kebab store around the corner.
She loves reading, writing, and watching movies—anything that transports her to another world. She picks Captain Wentworth over Mr. Darcy, firmly believes in second breakfast, and never leaves home without her verveine.
She is a traditionally published author of three novels and one novella, and has won several awards for her writing—including winning/placing in the Storymakers’ First Chapter Contest multiple times. Her second novel, Unraveled, was a contender for the ALA Schneider Family Book Award. She is currently serving her second year on the LDStorymakers’ Board of Directors as Membership Chair.
