Molly Ker Hawn
Julia Walton has spent the majority of her professional life in captivity behind 6 ft cubicle walls. Her enclosure was comfortable and open to visitors during regular business hours. She was given adequate food, a soft nest, and plenty of insurance policies to pass the time. Yet still, she longed for freedom.
Now, she lives in Huntington Beach, CA with her husband and daughter where she can usually be coaxed out of hiding with tea, Crunchies, and Haribo gummy bears.
She received an MFA in Creative Writing from Chapman University.
When she’s not talking to herself, reading to her daughter, or watching her favorite movies on an endless loop, she writes contemporary YA fiction.
She has the worst sense of direction on the planet.
Her debut YA novel, WORDS ON BATHROOM WALLS, is forthcoming from Random House BFYR (July 4, 2017).
