Julie Coulter Bellon
Julie Coulter Bellon is the award-winning author of more than a dozen romantic suspense novels. Her books almost always have characters that are in the military and law enforcement and sheï¿½s made many great friends in that field who help make her characters as authentic as possible. One of her most treasured experiences was when she was put into contact with a Marine who was stationed in Iraq at the time. His unit would gather around the computer after theyï¿½d come in from their mission of disarming IEDs along the roadsides and they would patiently answer all her questions. One of the things they told her during those sessions was that they missed having candy from home, like Skittles. So Julie arranged a Skittles for Soldiers food drive at all her booksignings and was able to collect 900 lbs of food and hygiene items for our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistanï¿½just to make sure our soldiers knew they werenï¿½t forgotten and were appreciated.
Julie has appeared on television and radio, and regularly teaches at writing conferences to help others improve their craft. She loves to travel and her favorite cities so far are Athens, Paris, Ottawa, and London. Her goals are to visit Hawaii, Australia, Ireland, and Scotland someday. She loves to read, write, teach, watch Castle, Hawaii Five-O, and eat Canadian chocolate. Not necessarily in that order.
