About Julie Seedorf
I have worn many hats throughout my life such as working as a waitress, nursing home activities, office manager and finally computer repair person eventually owning my own computer repair business. I never forgot my love of writing and quit my computer business in 2012 after signing a contract with Cozy Cat Press for Granny Hooks A Crook, the first book in my Fuchsia, Minnesota Series.
Using my imagination with fictional communities in Minnesota in both the Fuchsia Series and Brilliant, Minnesota Series hopefully will spark imagination in others bringing laughter and joy to my reader's lives.
I also dabble a bit in watercolor painting bringing another passion to my life. When we lose our infinite imagination and passion we lose a little bit inside of ourselves.
Oh, and did I tell you I like to be a little bit silly.

Granny will solve this mystery--you can bet your pink undies, she will!
You have all heard the story: big-city girl moves to small town and lives happily ever after. That's not the forever-after Angel Delaight found when she moved to Whistle Stop, Minnesota. First her realtor is found dead in her new house, which is also rumored to be haunted. Then homeless animals began showing up at her door, along with a bevy of townspeople who seem to know what she is doing at all times. Not to mention a secret journal turning up during renovation, revealing more secrets hidden in this small community.
Will those secrets from the past put Angel's life and those of her friends and family in danger? When the big-city girl meets a small town, it can be murder.
Both Abby and Maggie jumped and quickly dropped their hands to their sides as Brady ran into the kitchen and snatched up the phone.
*Brady, Brady, all of you have to come quickly. I need your help.* screamed Grandma.
Yes Grandma is in trouble again and the four cousins scramble to her aid. What they find when they look for her is a ransacked house, a missing Grandma and clues they don't understand. What they learn about Grandma leaves them wide eyed and open mouthed.
Here’s a different kind of book: This cozy mystery was written by 24 of Cozy Cat Press’s 40-some authors, with each author penning their own individual chapter or chapters. How did we make this happen? Easy! We started at the top of the alphabet with Amy Beth Arkawy and moved down the alphabet through Diane Weiner (with a few detours along the way). None of the authors had any idea where the next author would take the story; they only knew what they wanted to do with the characters and the plot in their own chapter. We think you’ll find the results amazing––and exciting! So, be prepared for quite a ride, as we go CHASING THE CODEX!
Maggie stopped by Abby, but Jake and Brady were having too much fun playing Annie Annie Over with the pen they had whisked off the table. Maggie had dropped it when she was going to chase Jake and Brady. It flew over the girls’ heads with ease. The look of concern on Abby’s face was enough to get Maggie’s attention, leaving her to ignore the pen that was flying over their heads.
Once Brady and Jake saw that their sisters were not paying any attention to their antics but whispering seriously about something, the boys put down the pen.
“What’s going on?”
Yes, Grandma was in trouble again and the four cousins had to rescue her. Following her trail, and figuring out the clues, lead the cousins to secrets Grandma had not told them about her past. The fun they find along the way makes this a book for young readers and also the young at heart.
