I'm Julie. I use the handle julival or my real name interchangeably. I've been around this board almost since its debut and I've been around most of the people who post here since 1999 or whenever they started posting, whichever was first.

I read a lot of fantasy and a lot of other stuff, too. I'm a traditionalist who grew up on JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis, but I've read quite a bit more fantasy since then. I'd have to say my favorite fantasy author for the past several years has been George RR Martin, author of A Song of Ice and Fire (a series that keeps growing, along the lines of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time, only with less black and white characters and less discussion of what fabric everyone is wearing.).

I am wordy and like to explain things, so am always happy to be of assistance in the chat (when I'm around on Saturday evenings - US eastern time). I'm also a mom and a former research biochemist and a former teacher (briefly and unfortunately) and currently an office manager for a small business.

I live in on the fringe of the midwestern US, am married, have two teenaged sons (one of whom has just started Wheel of Time - poor child), two dogs, and some fish.

What else? Oh. I've met 28 of the current and former members of the FFF in person at various social events, weddings, and the like, and on the whole, I find them to be quite a wonderful group of people.

Also, sometimes I post in this color instead of the other one. Depends on whether I'm feeling like coral or grape. I'm sure you care.
