“I met Julia almost twenty years ago, through our nonfiction writing about romance fiction. I admired her well-researched and fascinating work on Rudolph Valentino, the 1920s silent film star. Then, about five years ago, Julia contacted me to ask for an interview, related to my job as a college writing professor, regarding connections between literature and business communication. She is a skillful interviewer who does her homework; she came well prepared to our session and asked excellent questions. In particular, Julia has a special talent for casting a wide net, gathering unusual information, and then writing articles that are fresh and surprising in some way–an interesting take on a familiar topic or a twist of insight regarding a well-worn assumption.” -Dr. Katherine Wikoff, Associate Professor, General Studies, Milwaukee School of Engineering-

I would work with her again in a heartbeat.” -Vanessa VanderZanden, former Managing Editor, TDmonthly Magazine-
