I am a Christian author. I write YA novels — mostly fantasy, though I do have some ideas for dystopian novels (you can read more about all of those ideas here: https://juliawitmerblog.wordpress.com/…) In my writing, I try to interweave the truths I know about the world, and my faith, to come up with something magical and inspiring.
I’m also obsessed with my own characters. I know it may sound odd, but I tend to fall in love with each character I write, and I never want to part with them by the time I type the words “The End.”
On top of writing my own novels and fangirling over my own characters, I’m a geek. I won’t even pretend that I’m not — and that’s not a bad thing! I love watching Doctor Who, Sherlock, The Mentalist, Once Upon a Time . . . the list goes on and on, and though I shouldn’t spend as much time as I do watching those shows, I take pride in the fact that I am, in all truth, a geek.
Besides all that, when I find a song I like, I listen to it on repeat for hours, and since I come from a musical family, I suppose this is to be expected. I also love to read almost as much as I love to write, I enjoy sitting at my computer and soaking up everything about writing — by literary agents, published authors, editors — all of it. I like horses, though I can’t say I have the dedication of my little sister, who goes to riding lessons, and knows all the technical terms that one who rides horses should know, and I love to spend time with my family and pets.
I hope to one day be a published author. But my wish isn’t to become famous, like some want, and like I used to long for a while ago. Now, all I wish is to share my stories with the world, and hopefully, somehow, make a difference — if only in a single person’s life.
I try to post on my blog regularly, and my topics often include writing advice, my life as an author, short stories, and other tidbits that I’ll come up with along the way. If you wish to get in touch with me, all of my information is on my Contact Me page, and I’d love to hear from you!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day, and God bless!
