Julie Eberhart Painter, born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, always dreamed of becoming a writer. She wrote stories in her head all through her eight-year study of ballet and during her classes in Interior Design at the Moore Institute of Art Science and Industry in Philadelphia. She’s been known to mime furniture at parties. Her favorite pieces are Chippendale dining chairs and Victorian chaise lounges.
For twenty-six years, Julie worked with nursing homes as a volunteer coordinator and later as a community ombudsman. During her eighteen years with Hospice of Volusia/Flagler in Port Orange, Florida, she co-counseled patients and edited two book anthologies, stories collected from the community at large about grieving and bereavement.
Julie has published four novels: The Kingmaker; American Castles; Tahitian Destiny Mortal Coil, and The World, the Flesh and the Devil. Her e-book, From the Inside Out, is a personal memoir, about how to stay motivated and effective as a volunteer coordinator. It is available in online bookstores.
Julie has integrated her volunteer work and her hobbies of duplicate bridge and world travel into her flash fiction, which can be read online at www.bewilderingstories.com. Her short stories, based on Celtic, Chinese and Polynesian legends, appear in publications worldwide.
Her non-fiction work includes articles on writing in The Romance Writers' Report, The Galley, Florida Writers’ Magazine and The Heartbeat. She has contributed many essays to the Orlando Sentinel, Seniors Today, The News-Journal of Daytona Beach, and The Wittenberg Door, a religious humor magazine.
