About Me

julie_carobiniHello! I grew up in LA in the eclectic and artsy Navarro family, a group of truly right-brained individuals. Among us you’ll find writers, artists, and musicians, all of us willing to talk about the arts at a moment’s notice.

After weathering some missteps in my early years, I landed in Ventura County where I made great friends, found faith, and fell in love with the dashing Dan Carobini. (Who, although born and bred in landlocked Pennsylvania, now owns several pairs of board shorts.)

After conquering a serious illness, and while raising three children, I began writing articles for a variety of magazines. My work covered issues such as family, faith, and the sea. I’ve also edited many books for talented authors. Over the years I picked up two writing awards from the National League of American Pen Women and a Carol Award for editing from ACFW.

Eventually I decided to write seaside novels with a touch of romance and faith, and that’s where I found my voice. I currently have ten full-length novels and three novellas in print ~ with more on the way. Most recently, I’ve begun writing mysteries, too. Turns out I can be rather creepy 🙂 (Thanks, Mom, for bringing me up on Agatha Christie and Mary Stewart!)

When I’m not writing, marketing, or editing, I’m marveling at the beautiful kiddos I’ve had the privilege to raise … and yet giddy that, now that they are grown, I’ve traded in my van for a sporty little number 😉
