Diary of a Dead Girl
Julie Townsend’s world is turned upside down after her
parents’ tragic death. Now sole guardian of her younger brother at only
twenty-three, and desperate for a change, she takes an offer too good to
refuse—a house to live in for free in a small town.
Things take a dangerous turn when she discovers a diary full of secrets
concerning her cousin’s murder. When Julie begins to investigate, she realizes
she’s in too deep—and may soon be the next victim.
Summer of Indie asked author C.J. Urban to tell us more
about herself so that readers could get to know her better. We asked her about her personal life, as well what inspired her to become an author:
"I've lived in Orange County my whole life, and I love it. Knowing
both the beach and Big Bear are a hop, skip, and a jump away is pretty amazing.
I've always loved writing, and I plan to continue until I can no longer type. I
have an adorable miniature Pomeranian named Mocha. She keeps me company on
those nights (or early mornings) that I'm up typing away trying not to lose
sudden bursts of inspiration. I'm also a huge coffee-lover and find it's one of
the best ways to bring people together. I graduated with a bachelor of arts in
psychology from Cal State Fullerton and loved earning the degree. My goal is to
be a full-time writer, and I'm working my hardest to make that dream a reality."
