About the Author
Reviewers from Publisher's Weekly to Romantic Times have praised Julie Ortolon's contemporary romance for being "sizzling," "fastpaced," and "filled with genuine heart." Numerous awards for her work include two Bookseller's Best Awards. Almost Perfect, book one of her Perfect trilogy was a Rita finalist and was named Best Single Title Contemporary by the readers of Affaire de Coeur
Julie's road to success as a romance novelist was a bit bumpier than most authors, however. Her struggle with dyslexia left her functionally illiterate until her mid-twenties when she discovered romance novels were worth the effort. To turn her favorite pastime, daydreaming emotionally rich stories, into a career, she taught herself to read, type, and use English as a written language, not just a spoken one. Her struggles made hitting the USA Today list with her first title even more rewarding.
When Julie isn't writing or reading, she enjoys gardening, cooking, and traveling the world. You can learn more about Julie at: JulieOrtolon.com
