My speciality is the ontological convergence of science, technology and politics, from the perspective of a credentialed academic and professional background.
Kidding. My last science class was in 1976, Physics for Poets, and my tech training was a coding class circa 1980 offered through the adult education program of the Department of Agriculture. We programmed a large machine to alphabetize cards. Never one to let a lack of expertise slow me down, I write nonetheless about science, technology and politics. Also about food. And travel. And other people’s books.
Why blog? Back before I caught on to fake news, someone on the internet claimed that novel writers are required to provide themselves with an audience as well as a book before any publisher will look at them. I’ve since learned that’s not really true, but have grown fond of blogging. So, I guess I’m here to stroke my ego, and yours. Also to do my bit to inflate the income of those great advertising platforms, the search engine companies.
From my fill-in-the-blank author’s bio: Julia lives with her husband in a hideaway surrounded by birches and espaliered apple trees. When she’s not writing bestselling novels, she collects missives from her wandering children like nectar from honeydew, writes songs, treks the Mt. Jefferson Wilderness and weaves between rush-hour traffic on her bicycle.
Having trouble adjusting to reality? To the idea we’re all insignificant and connected to each other like burrs in a sock? You’ve come to the right place.
Started a novel in 2012, one of those write-in-60-days projects. Anticipating finishing if The End doesn’t get me first.
