This is my fancy bio:
Julie Roberts Towe became a voracious writer at ten years old; a poem captivated her and made her see the world in a new way. The poem was “I am a Quiet Place” by Judy Polkow. Recognizing the power of metaphor, she began to write constantly, using journals, letters, and volumes upon volumes of poetry to begin exploring the world around her through her writing. Ordinary and overlooked aspects of life revealed their deeper meaning and became an important part of her work.
Having spent most of her life in east Tennessee in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the beauty of nature is ever present in her writing. Now living in a North Texas suburb with her husband and four children, Julie returns home to Appalachia in her stories. She covers many diverse subjects in her writing, but particularly addresses topics relating to equality for women and the LGBTQI Community, acceptance of personal and cultural diversity, and abuse recovery. She writes to give birth to love.
