Full Bio

Julie Anne Peters

Julie Anne Peters is the critically-acclaimed, award-winning author of more than a dozen books for young adults and children. Her book, Luna, was a National Book Award Finalist; Keeping You a Secret was named a Stonewall Honor Book; Between Mom and Jo won a Lambda Literary Award; and Define “Normal” was voted by young readers as their favorite book of the year in California and Maryland. Julie’s books have been published in numerous countries, including Korea, China, Croatia, Germany, France, Italy, Indonesia, Turkey, and Brazil.

She is a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, PEN America, Colorado Authors League, and The Author’s Guild.

Julie loves writing because she gets to be her own boss and doesn’t have to work in an office cubicle. It’s hard to think outside the box when you work in a cube. She lives in Lakewood, Colorado, with her partner, Sherri, and far too many cats. The cats are under the impression that they’re creative geniuses since they spend a majority of their day walking back and forth across her computer keyboard. They probably generate more words per day than she does, but who can read cat gibberish?
