All About Julie Leto

By all reports, Julie Leto was a sweet child once, somewhat shy, preferring to play quietly in her room making up stories. However, being raised with three brothers in a loud, primarily Italian household did have its influences and Julie discovered her inner tough girl. That's probably why most of her heroines kick serious butt. Writing sassy heroines has worked out, as she's sold over forty books to four publishers featuring strong, confident women. Julie lives in Florida with her daughter, a spoiled dachshund, a haughty lynx-point Siamese and a wide range of relatives all within driving distance.

I’m in the middle of two books…ACROSS THE STARLIT SEA by Diana Peterfreund and THE COUNTESS CONSPIRACY by Courtney Milan.  I’ve been so busy with the holidays I haven’t had much time to read.  I hate that!  Hopefully, things will free up next week.   You?
