Scribbler’s Playhouse features big ideas and the people who explore them, people who stand up for what they believe in, research and write about what we can do to make things better for ourselves and for other living things. Themes lean toward environmental topics, cosmology, technology and politics, and spill into food, travel, music, books and blogs. Having trouble adjusting to reality? To the idea we’re all insignificant and attached to each other like burrs in a sock? You’ve come to the right place.
From my (not completely true) fill-in-the-blank author’s bio: Julia lives with her husband in a hideaway surrounded by birches, maples 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.*
I am working on my great American novel, write newspaper editorials, write for newsletters, “Good Living and Retirement,” and have appeared in Oregon Quarterly. I currently chair the local Library Foundation board, volunteer for the Oregon Community Foundation, practice and teach Ashtanga yoga, ski, hike, travel, bicycle, cook, play in a band, coo over babies and other people’s dogs.
