Author photo. Always intent on being a writer, Julie Krantz often describes herself as "one of those kids who headed to the library for a good time." A lifelong book lover, she published her first article in the Riverton, NJ newspaper in eighth grade. Now a full-time poet, picture book writer and novelist, her work can be found in the SCBWI National Bulletin, the Chapel Hill News and Charlotte Viewpoint as well as various online forums. Julie's first picture book, TACHI'S GIFT, appeared in the September 2007 issue of SPIDER Magazine as a story entitled, "Yoshi's Yucca." This same story received a Letter of Merit from the SCBWI Magazine Merit Award Committee in 2008. Julie also won a 2006 Emerging Artists Grant from the Durham Arts Council, a First Place in Children's Writing from Carteret Writers, Inc. in 2002, and an Honorable Mention from the Society of Southwestern Authors in the early '90's. A graduate of Douglass College and Rutgers University, she recently earned a Certificate with Honors in Creative Writing from UCLA-Extension. In addition to writing, Julie has raised four children (and had her hair raised by them!) and loves to read, hike, camp, shop, knit, eat and participate in blogs and writing contests. She also enjoys visiting schools for workshops, talks and poetry readings. That just about covers it. Oh! Except for watching movies and traveling. In fact, Julie has lived in many places, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Arizona, California, North Carolina, Florida and France.
