She is the sixth of eight children in a large Irish family. At the age of six, Julie had her tonsils removed and complications from the surgery resulted in a long period of recuperation. She fell hopelessly behind in school and never caught up.
By chance, Sister Mary Elizabeth passed us in the hall and was drafted to tutor me. The patient teacher eventually unlocked the door to the world of reading.
First, she introduced me to the Nancy Drew mysteries. One of her favorite authors was O. Henry, and he became one of mine, too. Of course, some of the vocabulary was beyond me so I had to look up a lot of words. I sat on a large dictionary -- got up, looked up a word, sat back down. Julie married young with Gerry Garwood and they had three children: Gerry Jr. She began her writing career when the youngest of her three children entered school.
After the publication of two young adult books, she turned her talents to historical romance fiction. Her first romance novel, Gentle Warrior, was published by Pocket Books with her married name in -- there have been over 20 novels since then. The popularity of her books expands with each new publication, and she is now read and enjoyed in many languages around the world. Her reputation as a masterful storyteller is solidly founded in her ability to deliver stories with appealing characters, powerful emotions, and surprising plot twists.
Julie attributes much of her success to growing up in a family of Irish heritage. Add in the fact that I was the sixth of seven children. Early in life I learned that self-expression had to be forceful, imaginative and quick," says Julie. Julie lives with her family in Leawood, Kansas. When her schedule allows time away from family and career, she devotes her efforts to promoting literacy, and especially enjoys sharing her love of reading with student groups.
Sadly, this was a tough book to get through at times. The pacing felt off and it seemed to lag too much in some parts. I very well could be being a little too picky here, but I think it just felt too unbalanced to me. I liked him, and I also liked the h -- so there is that! Overall, just an okay read for me. There is some family drama, some sweet and sexy times, and a few funny moments
