About

I am the author of Winter Seedlings, Winter Suns, and Silencer. My books are available at most online booksellers.

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.

  1. Im not sure if I was the commenter you deleted the comment of or not. Ive been following you on Twitter now for a while, and I find your comments and speakings well thought out. I was curious about a few things.

    1. Are your books on iTunes (i assume not, but better to ask first)
    2. Are your abuse subjects depthy? (My matriarch was the subject of my abuse, and on all 3 levels. Its difficult for me to read about others experiencing such abuse, but sometimes I can do it).
    3. Do any of the books end happily?

    I would have DM’ed you on twitter, but your not a follower of mine, so I cannot.

    • Yes, you were the one. Sorry I accidentally deleted your comment. To answer your questions:
      1. Yes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/julie-roberts-towe/id988671393?mt=11
      2. I don’t focus a lot on the actual physical act of abuse, but there is a lot of focus on the emotional toll, PTSD, nightmares, and such that follow abuse. The stories follow the characters as they try to put their lives back together. I have had a couple of people tell me they could not finish the book because of the abuse. I think sometimes it’s easier to read about the physical aspect when the emotional scars aren’t always brought to light. I hope this is enough information to help you make an informed decision about reading them. I do not fault anyone for not reading my books if they are afraid of being triggered.
      3. I don’t want to give away the endings… but, it’s mixed. At least one of my books does end happily, and I was actually faulted for that in a review because it was too tidy. But they had not read my other books or perhaps they’d know why I felt it was time to bring peace.
      The book I am writing now will be just a little bit lighter (not necessarily light, but light-er), and it will have a character on the autism spectrum. Still in the LGBT genre. If you can’t bring yourself to read the others (understandably) maybe the next one will work for you.
      Thank you for your interest and your questions! I followed you on twitter so you can DM there anytime you’d like. 🙂
