All of Jessie's world is a stage, and she's determined to become a player, in "Drama Queens in the House" by Julie Williams.

Sixteen-year-old Jessie Jasper Lewis doesn't remember a time in her life when she wasn't surrounded by method actors, bright spotlights, and feather boas. Her parents started the Jumble Players Theater together, and theater is the glue that holds her crazy family together. But when she discovers that her father's cheating on her mother with a man, Jessie feels like her world is toppling over. And on top of everything else, she has to deal with a delusional aunt who is predicting the end of the world. Jessie certainly doesn't feel ready to be center stage in the production that is her family. But where does she belong in all of this chaos?

About the Author
When they were small children, Julie's parents took her and her siblings to the movies every Sunday afternoon. What seemed like normal fun family outings actually ignited an imagination that is now without boundaries. After graduating from college with a degree in Mass Media-Communication, Julie's career has been concentrated in working retail support for various large corporations. However, all of Julie's spare time has been devoted to churning out long and short tales of humor, adventure, mystery, and murder for adults and children. Julie's short story, "The Fear of Women," was a finalist in the 14th Gertrude Johnson Williams Short Story Competition sponsored by the Johnson Publishing Company. She has created the eBook horror series, "The University of Perdition," which is now available on Amazon.com. Julie has completed her first full-length adult fiction novel entitled, "DISRESPECTING LELA," that deals with secrets, family, and murder.
