About

Juliana used to live on the canyon rim writing, raising horses, cooking for friends and family, singing, teaching, and wandering through the wild. Recently, she left her home in the Panhandle of Texas and moved to the San Gabriel Valley in Southern California. She previously taught high school including such subjects as English, dual college credit, math, and various remediation topics. She has lived all over the US: Utah, Rhode Island, New York, Florida, Ohio, the Panhandle of Texas and now Southern California.  She grew up on a family farm in Missouri and once spent a winter living in Veracruz, Mexico. Her travels include India, Nepal, Myanmar, Thailand, Kashmir, England, Dubai, Ethiopia, Costa Rica, Argentina, and Italy.  One passion is predators, especially pumas. The book, “Sexual Harassment in the Workplace: A Guide to Prevention” ( co-authored with attorney Betsy Doucet) was published in 1992 and has been translated into Spanish. Her book of poetry, “On the Rim of Wonder” was published April 2014. Both are available on Amazon. Her latest book, “You’re Gonna Eat That:  Adventures with Food, Family, and Friends: was published by DreamCatcher Press last year. The link is :  www.dreamcatcherbooks.com/angel-edition-books.html. Signed copies are available directly from the author.  Several of her poems have been published by The Story Circle Network, an organization dedicated to women telling their stories.  One of their recent anthologies, Inside and Out contains her poem, “Babie Doll”.  Currently, she is gardening, hiking, entertaining friends, singing, and working on a new book in Southern California.

    • I enjoyed your last blog post–made me smile. Generally, I am so a-religious that some of your interests/concerns are far afield from mine. Nevertheless, I am always interested in how others see things which perhaps explains why I have been married to an Iranian, a Nigerian, etc. I am very flattered that you find my poems, essays, etc. to your liking and are following my blog.

  1. My o my! You raise horses? Wow! Love, love, them! I don’t get the chance to ride them that much around here, but I dream of having one or two of mine someday.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Will be following yours from now on πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Jen. Now if I can just figure out how to do all this and post the icon on my blog, we are good to go. I never did figure out how to place my icon for being a SCN Star Blogger on my blog so wondering…

  2. “She teaches high school math, but taught English and literature before the administration discovered she was good at math and science.” I found this very cute I actually giggled πŸ˜‰
