Meet the Author

As writers seem to, Julia H. West has held many arcane jobs. She's been a quality control technician for ultrasound heart machines (video recordings of ultrasound cross sections of her heart were shipped all over the world with the machines). She's been a genealogical researcher, an office manager, a secretary, a desktop publisher, a digger at an archaeological dig, a quality assurance tech, a webmaster, an aircraft electrician for the Air Force Reserves, and a keyer for the United States Post Office.

Julia loves music, and sings with the Utah Filk Organization (that's not a typo: filk is the music of the science fiction and fantasy community). She was a founding member of the local chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism and still enjoys researching medieval culture. She has been an active member of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America for over ten years, and has been awarded the Service to SFWA Award. She is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons).

Julia graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Utah with a BA in Anthropology. When people asked her what she would do with that degree, she'd tell them, "Write science fiction." Many of her stories incorporate fascinating bits of culture she discovered while studying. "Soul Walls" is loosely based on Hopi culture--the importance of running, the various spiritual guides, even the animals who aided Tiva.
