Molly Ker Hawn
Julie Israel is an author, artist, and real life cookie monster from Portland, Oregon. She may also be a unicorn for getting a degree in Creative Writing and actually using it, but she hasn’t always; between graduating and selling her first book, she also taught English in Japan, tutored, wrote freelance copy, and volunteered.
When not writing, she is probably learning about or teaching herself something: photography, French, guitar, tarot, how to memorize a whole deck of cards. Like good stories, she believes life should be threaded through with fascinations.
Her first novel, JUNIPER LEMON’S HAPPINESS INDEX, comes out in 2017 with Kathy Dawson Books/Penguin.
