Julie Strauss lives, reads, writes, cooks, and gardens with her husband and four children in Southern California. She is known in some circles as “that weird bookish lady who talks to her plants” and in other circles as “that foul-mouthed wine drinker who laughs at inappropriate moments.” She loves you as a person but does not care about your cats unless you have taught them how to talk.
