Julia Joseph taught theater for nine years in Texas middle and high schools, where she wrote and produced three original plays for her students. In 2011, Joseph left teaching to devote all of her energy to her own children and to writing a novel. She earned her B. A. in English Literature and Language with a focus in Drama from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, Texas.

Joseph spends most of her free time reading, writing, and chauffeuring her kids between activities. She lives happily with her husband and two children wherever the Army happens to station them.
