Hi, I'm Julia!
From a young age, I have always aspired to create and tell stories. I went to college to pursue media production, and have found many ways to express my creativity in various roles throughout the years, building on my degree by pursuing creative hobbies and learning how to use different technology to bring my stories to life.
"Rosie Becomes a Warrior" is an incredibly meaningful passion project for me that I hope to turn into a larger children's book series for children managing type 1 diabetes everywhere.
I hope Rosie becomes a friend to any child with type 1 diabetes who reads this book. I hope for parents, you see your children with type 1 diabetes in her and remember how strong, resilient, and capable they are. I hope for any friends of people with type 1 diabetes or anyone who is interested in learning more about the condition itself that reads this book develops a better understanding of it and learns more about ways they can listen and empathize.
Rosie is for anyone who has struggled to connect or feel empowered because of the adversities they've faced in life. I hope she brings a smile to your face and fills your heart with hope.
Thank you for reading my children's story. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about it, and I especially look forward to the chance to continue her story in more books.
