In 2013 Testarossa was reprinted under the Bookspan/Direct Brands imprint and retitled A Deadly legacy. It will be re-released in trade paperback under the Crooked Lane Books banner in September 2015.
4 Days, the sequel to A Deadly Legacy, has been completed and is awaiting publication.
Julie is also an accomplished poet, writing under the name Julie Dolcemaschio. She has written several books of poetry, and her work has been featured in several literary journals.
