Julie, thank you for sharing some time with us today! I am excited to help you promote your upcoming Lexi book No Regrets. What’s it like to be celebrating the 10th full length book in the series?
It is amazing! Lexi is a hoot, but there are also amazing characters that support her. Who is your favorite character that you love to have with Lexi? All the characters bring something to Lexi’s growth.
I really enjoy writing all the supporting characters! Basia was the first fully fleshed out secondary character I wrote. She’s the expositional character in the series. She plays off Lexi’s inexperience and offers suggestions to help bring her out of her geek shell with sometimes—well, most of the time—unexpected results. Elvis and Xavier are also both fun characters to write. They had a lot in common with Lexi, and yet they are different, so it’s been interesting to plot their growth in different directions. Slash, of course, is an enigma, and it’s been quite fun to write him. His growth has been the slowest, but he has a LOT of layers to peel.
Baisa is one of my favorites that you have created. Along with the twins.Nerd girl is a bit of your motto, what makes Lexi not only a nerd girl but a female character that all can love?
I think people identify with Lexi. She’s highly intelligent, and yet touchingly naive about interpersonal relationships and friendships. She’s a loner and painfully introverted, yet she’s genuine, honest, intensely loyal, and always trying to figure out how to be a better person and friend. She’s an interesting conundrum. She’s smart enough to know she needs people and a life outside her “virtual existence,” but she doesn’t always know quite how to go about it.
How do you design your next book? Are you a vision board person, or do you have a unique way of planning it out?
What’s coming up for Lexi and you?
I’m officially contracted for two more Lexi books, but I think there will be more after that. I’m currently writing Book #11, NO STONE UNTURNED. I’m almost finished with the second book in my young adult spy/mystery KNIGHT MOVES.
Are you writing any books besides your Lexi series?
Yes! Thanks for asking! As I mentioned briefly before, I just released WHITE KNIGHTS, the first book in a young adult spy/mystery series. Early reviews have been great, so I’m excited about that! I’ve got several books plotted in this series, so stand by for more excitement!
It was a pleasure to chat! We look forward to more of your books on the shelves!
Thank you for having me, Bree! oxo
