I Love Julie Hutchings, Author Extraordinare

Do you know Julie Hutchings?

You know, this babe?

Julie Hutchings

Julie wears many hats. And not because she’s a shifty criminal with multiple identities trying to evade authorities (but she could be because she is that interesting.) Julie is a mom, author, blogger, writer, reader, encourager of people, pep-talker, advice giver, inappropriate joke-teller, and recipient of awkward text messages of my face.

17977192Her first novel RUNNING HOME  is phenomenal. She’s also participating in an anthology that I am editing and releasing this fall called The Dark Carnival. And what I’m most excited about, she’s currently writing a story about witches and it sounds like THE BEST NOVEL IN THE WHOLE UNIVERSE AND I CAN’T WAIT TIL IT’S DONE.

Ahem. Anywho, what I’ve noticed is how amazing Julie is. She’s entirely honest and true. She’s encouraging when I need it. And damn, this chica is talented. So I asked myself, how can I show her how AMAZING she is?

And I realized, what could be better than a Friday celebration in Julie’s honor?

pizzaSo, take a slice of digital pizza, a glass of champagne (because pizza and champagne obviously go together), and let’s cheers to how amazing and incredible Julie is.

I’ll toast first.

And then to follow, when I told other people in secret that I was doing a Julie-is-awesome-post, they were just dying to give a toast to Julie too!

So raise your glass and follow along! Get ready to read what people had to say when I asked them the following question:

    I love her because she is pure, unadulterated, awesomesaucy sauce…with a side of snarkilicious. *rolls in rainbows of happy* <–rainbows come from unicorn farts.

    Julie is not just a talented author, but one of those unique peoples who radiates strength from simply knowing who she is and sharing it with the world.

    You were an ear to lend when this stranger needed someone to “talk” to during times of great pain.
    We all know you can write. Be funny. Be you.
    And beyond all of your professional commitments and more importantly, your personal ones, you listened.
    You care. I “Thank you!” from the bottom of my heart.
    Angel smiles & laughter to you & yours.
    Cheers & Blessings!!!

    Julie is the single point in the universe where funny, irreverent and sweet all come together. She’s like a tabasco covered, sherbet filled fortune cookie.

    I love Julie because she’s funny, heartfelt, gloriously inappropriate at times, and on twitter is as good a friend as you could ask for.
