If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?I’d travel to the past. I could stop some wars, save some lives, and have some fun with my futuristic knowledge.

If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
I’d take a hammock, a cold glass of orange juice, and a teleportation device. Never know when you need to teleport to get more orange juice.

What is the last movie you saw?
The last movie I saw was Inception. Really good movie.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
I’d like the ability to stretch like plastic man. That way, I could stay in bed while cooking breakfast, or continue to write while I walk the dog.

When you were 12 years old what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was 12, I wanted to be a professional football player. I may have a play or two left in me.
Which fictional character would you most like to meet?
I’d like to meet Braveheart. Who’s cooler than William Wallace?

What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast?
I love French Toast.

Is there anything you need in order to write? (ie Chocolate, quiet, music)I need theme music to write. It helps me picture the scenes and tap into the emotions of a story through the music.

Night owl, or early bird?I’m an early bird. Even during the rare moments I have nothing to do, I’ll still wake up early.

One food you would never eat?I would never eat caviar. Fish eggs? No way.

Thank you Julian. Please visit Julian’s Website to learn more about him or his other books.

The Adventures of Annie Marmalade:Quest for the Ronji Crystal

When the sacred Ronji Crystal is taken to the Giants of the dark mountains, a little girl with a special gift is the only one who can return it.

The sacred Ronji Crystal has been taken from the magical town of Goodhaven.The crystal holds a curse that prevents the Giants of the dark mountains from attacking the town. The king of Goodhaven sends his son, Prince Marion, to retrieve it. His request, take neither man, woman, nor boy with him. Prince Marion finds his solution in a small girl with a special gift. Annie Marmalade has the power to turn any item into a dessert. Prince Marion simply wants Annie to open the entrance to Debor. When the door slams shut, Annie Marmalade and Prince Marion are forced to work together to retrieve the crystal from the depths of Debor. Journeying through the tunnels of the dark mountains, they learn the secrets of Debor. Annie uses her gift to create desserts to battle King Ontross and his minions. She creates rivers of caramel, licorice lassos, and even gummy bears to help Prince Marion return the Ronji Crystal to Goodhaven. This, however, is just the beginning.

The Adventures of Annie Marmalade is a children’s fantasy adventure. The target audience is children from the age of 8-14, though the story can be enjoyed by all ages.
