Indie Author Corner: Meet Julie Anne Grasso + Giveaway (AU only)

The Indie Author Corner, is a tool to help independently published authors promote their writing by introducing themselves and their books on my blog. If you are an indie author and would like to be included as a book feature please read this sign-up post. Today I’m hosting an Australian indie author of children’s books.

Meet Julie Anne Grasso

I am an Australian and I have a background in pediatric nursing.  I have spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool and every day I witnessed great courage and resilience from the tiny people I cared for, which inspired me to write stories about a little girl elf just like them. Add in some very funky technology, my love of science fiction and my desire to impart great values through my little girl elf named Caramel and there you have it, Escape From The Forbidden Planet was the result.
