Julia Boyce

Julia writes both middle grade and young adult novels. She is currently working on an edgy YA, while she submits a farm based MG to the editors and agents she has connected with at various SCBWI conferences. Julia has published an early reader and has also been published in Reader's Digest. When Julia is not writing fiction, she writes for a few local businesses and also helps out at SCBWI Encore. Julia lives on a farm in north western Rhode Island with her family, and an ever changing number of farm animals. Much of her writing is inspired by this lifestyle, and she can often be found writing in the barn or out in the cow fields.
