Julie is the author of the adult fantasy trilogy In Ash series. A Curse in Ash (10/21) and A Prophecy in Ash (10/22) are already published. Book 3 will release in October 2023. It has received rave reviews for it's character building and relationship dynamics. It's queer, polyamorous, and full of spicy consent.
Julie has two other contemporary romances written, one in querying and one in editing phases. There is a third in drafting phase and another in the idea phase. She plans to continue her publishing journey with spicy contemporary romance novels, but may revist fantasy at some point in the future.
Julie Zantopoulos grew up in Havertown, Pennsylvania but spent weekends and summers in the Pocono Mountains where she wandered the woods and daydreamed of the world beyond the Veil. When she’s not writing she’s running her YouTube channel, hosting writing sprints to encourage the online writing community, or reading. If all else fails, you’ll find her enjoying “bad” SyFy Channel made for television movies.

A Curse in Ash
Everyone knows you don't mess with Fae on a New Moon.
But the Fae that Aisling Quinn deals with don't need a thin Veil to cross and jeopardize her carefully created life. As a powerful witch, she's battled for agency in realms determined to control her. Now, she has a circle of friends she loves, a job where she excels, and a craft she's perfecting.
Enter a handsome stranger magically linked to her and the Fae fiancé who won't leave her side until threats against her life stop. As if that will ever happen.
Aisling has trained in magic use, self-defense, and secrecy, but no amount of training prepared her for a curse that hits so close to home. Then again, she never anticipated having two men by her side ready to fight and die with her.
With a diverse cast of characters and no shortage of danger or romance, the explosive world of A Curse in Ash, the first in an adult contemporary fantasy series, will leave you breathless for more.
