Julie Manthey started writing stories for her family and friends as soon as she could hold on to a crayon. She is a novelist, traveler, screenwriter, and eternal optimist who always tries to leave room for hope. She is always planning her next trip and is taller in person.

Julie is also a proud Hoya alumna of Georgetown University. She loves books, libraries, and bookstores and is frequently updating her very diverse reading list, which includes several fellow indie authors.

Julie thinks that the best part of writing fiction is imagining alternate worlds and mixing up a small echo of reality with a very large dose of fiction to create a fun, magical reading escape. She hopes that you enjoy the magical and fictional world she created in ‘The Magic of Cape Disappointment.’

She loves to travel and shares her reflections on travel and writing in her blog. Julie is also currently writing the second novel in the Cape Disappointment series.

She is an independent author and has self-published her novel. If you enjoyed reading it, please, tell all your friends and librarians. Please also consider writing a review on Amazon, GoodreadsBarnes and Noble, or other book sites. Thanks for your support!
