Why write contemporary romance?
While in primary school, she discovered numerous hardcover books with beautiful illustrations of a girl and her prince. The story of how an ordinary girl found her hero after going through heart-wrenching obstacles fascinated her. That was how it started. These types of characters have stuck with her for all these years, and now she’s writing them in her novels. The settings are different, but the goals, motivations and conflicts of the heroes and heroines are the same.
Julia devours all genres, but prefers contemporary – young adult, literary and romance. At this stage, her focus is to write contemporary romance with a suspense subplot as this is what she loves to read.
