Character. Conflict. Chemistry.
›I proofread everything. If a song on my iPod has a typo, I have to fix it or I cannot enjoy the song.
›I adore Coke. It's my favourite food. Yes, I wish I loved something like carrots or water, but I don't.
› My favourite TV shows of all time are Saved by the Bell and Arrested Development. I'm currently in love with The Great British Baking Show.
› My biggest fear is being eaten alive. Sharks, bears, cougars... if it can eat you, I'm concerned about it.
›I don't sleep with a pillow. I have a bunch, but I throw them on the floor before bed. If I use one I feel like I'm lying in a hotel waiting for something to happen.
Julianna Keyes is a Canadian writer who has lived on both coasts and several places in between. She's been skydiving, bungee jumping and white water rafting, but nothing thrills - or terrifies - her as much as the blank page. She loves Chinese food, foreign languages, baseball and television, not necessarily in that order, and will go to her grave swearing that "ain't" is not a word. She has volunteered in Zambia, taught English in China, and dreams of seeing pink dolphins in the Amazon. It'll happen.
She is represented by Jill Marr at the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.
