JULIE MAYERSON BROWN began her career writing humorous essays, using her two adorable (yes, biased opinion) sons as unwitting muses, for an LA based parenting monthly. After several years as a columnist, Brown began freelancing. Her work has appeared in the Daily Breeze, Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Jewish Journal, and Parenting Magazine.
An original “Valley Girl” from Encino, California, Brown now lives on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, a rural suburb of Los Angeles, with her husband, two sons (who return from college periodically for laundry service and home-made chicken soup), four (yes FOUR) boxer dogs, and hundreds of wild peacocks. An “at-home” mom and community volunteer for over twenty years, she is a founding member of a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to protecting children and teens.
Her first novel, The Long Dance Home, was published by Mischievous Muse Press, a subsidiary of World Nouveau Books. Her next book, The Second Sister, will be released early 2015. When not writing novels or rescuing dogs, Julie is reading, gardening, cooking, or bargain shoe shopping online (not necessarily in that order…)
