Julia King is a botanist turned children's book author with years of experience chasing toddlers around while naming plants by their Latin names. She is an avid proponent of reading to children when they are tiny tots and wants to foster a passionate love of books and a love of animals in kids, so they learn to read well and understand the natural world around them.
With 15 years of experience in the field of environmental consulting Julia has honed her ability to tell stories about the physical world through her photographs and accompanying text. She has been a passionate writer since her youth and has taken her photography to the next level through detail in composition and subject matter.
In Bingo's Big Adventure, Julia's first book, she has translated cat thoughts into human language through her almost telepathic-like abilities, interpreting what Bingo experiences in his first outing on their property into easy to read text.
When not translating "cat" into English, Julia teaches her kids how to shovel horse manure, play in the mud, identify weedy plant species, and build Lego towers. Then in her spare time she writes environmental documents and finds time to sneak out of the house when the kids are sleeping to play volleyball with a bunch of moms like herself.
To sum it up Julia describes herself as: Mom, equestrian, house wife, botanist, wetland scientist, children's book author, nurse, gardener, chicken wrangler, amateur veterinarian, laundry hanger, taxi driver, cleaning wench, short order cook, friend, etc...
