In a rare feat, Julie’s first novel, Into the Free, hit the New York Times Bestseller list in Paperback Fiction.
She’s also a children’s book author, marketing writer, volunteer, speech-language pathologist, nurturer, worrier, doer, giver. Many titles have been given to Julie Cantrell throughout her three (plus) decades on this planet.
If you ask her who she is, the answer is easy. She is first and foremost a mother, blessed to have two shining beams of light who brighten her world every day.
Julie wrote God Is with Me through the Day and God Is with Me through the Night to help her own children overcome fears such as separation anxiety and nightmares while building their trust in God. The published versions are geared for preschool and kindergarten aged children, and they include entertaining photos of animals that kids seem to love. Julie hopes these books provide your family enough stories, snuggles, and smiles to last a lifetime!
Julie is the editor-in-chief of Southern Literary Review and also maintains a blog for parents, teachers, and children’s ministers.
