I’m Juliann Rich and I write books for young adults, but I don’t card anyone over 18 who wants to read them. I promise.
I do write character-driven books about young adults who are bound to discover their true selves and the courage to create an authentic life…if the journey doesn’t break them.
Want to hear some cool advanced praise for my latest book, GRAVITY?
“A spicy novel about two young women daring to fly free in life and love while accurately depicting the thrill of ski jumping!”~ Sarah Hendrickson, Olympic Ski Jumper and Member of the US Women’s Ski Jumping Team
Yep – that is pretty much the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me as a writer!
And now for a personal note to my readers:
Hey, you—yeah you over there with a dream bigger than the sky…a dream so deeply rooted inside you that reaching for it feels impossible. Yeah, that’s right. I’m talking to you. I’m writing for you. Know why?
Because I WAS YOU.
Fact: I’ve dreamed of writing a book for as long as I can remember. Fact: I allowed fear of failure to stop me for a really, really, really long time. Like, 45 years! Fact: I published my first book at age 48 and just published my fourth.
What made me take the leap? I’m not sure. One day I just woke up and realized the pain of not trying was worse than the fear of failing.
My dream deserved a chance.
