Julia R. DeStefano hails from Boston, Massachusetts. A diarist her entire life, it was a string of failed relationships and consecutively lost joys that would result in her creation of therapeutic free verse. Unable to vocalize her truth to those around her - Julia would bring her innermost thoughts and desires to light the only way she knew how: through the written word. 'Leave Everything,' her first poetry and photography collection, was published in August 2016 and reached #11 in Poetry by Women at Amazon. Full of wit, revelation, and vulnerability, Julia’s writing teeters on the razor’s edge of reason and passion. It unapologetically challenges perceptions. At present, Julia is writing the follow-up to 'Leave Everything' - forever capturing moments and preserving them in the glistening amber of language. Look for this Red Queen atop her throne of books.
