I'm an author, a book addict, and a sucker for a good ship. Growing up, it was hard to find cool girl characters in science fiction (my favorite genre), so I eventually decided to fix that by writing my own darn stories. It seems to be working: my debut novel "Blue Karma" won three independent publishing awards, including LibraryJournal's Best Self-Published Ebook award for 2015. Off the page, I enjoy running, travel, sports, and singing through each day as if my life were an off-Broadway musical. Keep up with me on Twitter @jk_ullrich or visit my website for more about my work.
