J.A. Alexsoo was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, and has forever been a fan of fantasy. She has a B.Sc. in biology and environmental studies from Trent University and graduated from George Brown College, but her education in science hasn’t diminished her passion for fiction. Julie is a writer, and most recently is the author of The Knight’s Order. She has also published a short story with Reader’s Digest: Our Canada called A Gift Without Wrapping. When she isn’t imagining new adventures for her novels, she walks her two dogs and loves capturing scenes of nature.

Hi! I’m Julie
Thanks for visiting. I hope you’ve enjoyed browsing through my little corner of the interweb. I’m honored that you are curious about me, so here’s more, just for you!
A Fan of Fantasy & Science Fiction
Ever since I was young, I loved fantasy. Knights, dragons, and magic (oh my!). I find sword-play fascinating, though I’ve never tried it myself. Probably all those novels have rubbed off on me.
If you love any and all things Fantasy & Science Fiction related, then you’ll like my website. Topics on books, movies, video-games, you name it, you’ll find it here.
Always enjoyed science fiction as well. Grew up (well when I was old enough, parents, you know how it is) watching Sliders, X-Files, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Outer Limits, and remember those Alien movies!?
Fantasy. That’s the section you can find me in any bookstore. And lucky for me, science fiction isn’t far from there usually. I have read many different books, but I always faithfully return to those genres. The first book that ignited my love of reading was Dragonlance: The Legend of Huma.
Roguish archer! That’s me… though magic is pretty cool. So many choices!
A Proud Pet Parent
I had cats growing up, so it was an interesting change when I got a dog a few years ago. Now I have two, and I’m convinced they are the cutest pomeranians I’ve ever seen (although all dogs and cats are adorable).
Animal and Nature Advocate
I have an education in biology and environmental studies, so of course I am. I hope we can learn to do more to protect our environment. There are many wonderful people doing their part. Please recycle and compost when you can.
My goal is that once I am more established and have the means and resources, I intend to do all I can to advocate for the rights and health of both pets and wild animals alike. If you have a dog (or even a cat), please use a harness, not a collar when walking your pet.
Everyone has to start somewhere. That’s what I told myself as I began this journey. So far I have a short story published in Reader’s Digest: Our Canada, a few comics posted in the Trent University Student Magazine Absynthe, and a fantasy novel: The Knight’s Order. Six years in the making. When I wrote the first chapter in 2010, I never dreamed I would get this far. It was only in 2014 that I seriously considered making it into a book. So here’s to the future!
Please visit The Knight’s Order Page if you’d like to learn more about my fantasy novel. I’m working on Book 2 now. Please join my email list if you want updates on how it’s progressing.
Thanks for reading. I can’t wait to meet you!
