Julie is a native of Central Kentucky. After receiving her degree in English, she chose a career in higher education finance. Fifteen years later, she decided to allow her inner creative genius loose and began writing. She has been an avid reader her entire life, with a special love for mysteries, so she thought it fitting to make her first novel one of suspense. Growing up as an Army brat, she has lived in several states and foreign countries. To this day, she enjoys traveling to new places and experiencing new cultures. When at home she is likely to be found enjoying a few extreme sports, such as: rock climbing, scuba diving, or whitewater rafting. Her willingness to enter into activities of mortal peril is balanced by her commitment to ensure the quality of life for animals through her service with various dog rescue organizations. She now lives in Middle Tennessee with her three dogs, Ginny, Holly and Luna.

Suspended - a word Katie Freeman never thought she would hear. Now, here she was with an entire week to ruminate on her possible ruined career. And to make matters worse, she had brought her partner, Michael Powell, down with her. All of that changes when Michael and his former partner, Stan Odenthal, show up on her doorstep with a complex cold case that has haunted Stan for over two decades.
Twenty-three years ago, three women were murdered and their bodies left in a field -- all evidence pointing to ritualistic killings. The case remained unsolved, and Stan was bothered by the many unanswered questions and avenues of investigation that were left unexplored. Why did the killings stop after three? What did the ritualistic markings on the bodies really mean? Why these women?
Now with free time on their hands, Katie and Michael agree to help Stan with the one last case he couldn't solve. But with only four days to find a murderer, Katie and Michael must race the clock to discover answers before finding out whether the ax will fall on their careers.
