About Me


Represented by Marcia Wernick, of Wernick & Pratt Agency. To hire me, contact Marcia at: marcia@wernickpratt.com

I’m a reformed graphic designer, concocting and sculpting story ideas and illustrations – every day. I’ve been called opinionated (I like to share) and hyper (ready for anything), and a Pollyanna (isn’t that nice?).

My picture book illustration debut LOUIS, written by Tom Lichtenheld, HMH, will be released Oct.6, 2020. For more on the book and to meet my Soaring 20s Picture Book Debut mates, click HERE

Look for my author/illustration picture book debut, I’M A HARE, SO THERE!, HMH, coming in Summer 2021.


I prefer to post recommendations, not reviews (only picture books and leveled-readers with a strong visual component, fiction or non-fiction, from traditional publishing sources). I reserve the right not to post because every selection has to meet a certain personal criteria. Bound copies would later be donated to my local public school district.

Still interested? Send me an email: jrzoch@gmail.com. Please use ‘Book Review Request’ in the subject line. Send a brief description of your book and bio, and include any links pertaining to you and your book. I will let you know as soon as possible if and when I can post a recommendation. I do not accept money for reviews.

  1. Hi Julie. Thanks for liking my Margaret Roach interview and FB page. I noticed on your FB profile that you are originally from North Wantagh. I’m originally from Levittown. Are you a MacArthur grad?


  2. Hi Julie,

    Great blog and artwork, how would you like to see a blog set up to promote New (to me) Authors and their books and after looking at your artwork, I may consider promoting graphic artists as well?

    Call over and have a look at mine and if you like it enough, I’d be delighted if you became a follower 🙂


  3. Liebe Julie,

    ich hoffe, ich erreiche Dich über diesen Weg. Den alten Kontakt finde ich leider nicht.

    Über Deine Karte habe ich mich, haben wir uns sehr gefreut.

    Wir sind gerade im Val Grande, Piemont, Italien. Von dort liebe Grüße

    Ralf und Anke Bendorf-Schneider

  4. Julie, Can you tell me which electronic drawing pad you use (I’m sure there is a name for it other than ‘electronic drawing pad’ which just reveals my complete ignorance here!) Thanks so much!-Christy
