About JT Authors
Julie Solano and Tracy Justice (JT Authors) are two middle school teachers who are avid readers and love promoting literacy with their students. As part of their bucket list, they decided to write a Young Adult book series in hopes of getting reluctant teen readers to pick up a book for the sheer joy of reading. It is their hope to spread positive messages to teens, while encouraging reading. When Fall Breaks is the first book in the Seasons of Jefferson Series. This book is intended to give readers an awareness of the warning signs and dangers of unhealthy relationships and substance abuse. The second book, in the series, The Dead of Winter, is the continuation of the story, and was newly released in November of 2015. The team is currently working on the third book, yet to be titled.
Julie Solano has lived in far Northern California, nearly her entire life. She graduated from CSU, Chico, where she majored in Psychology and minored in Child Development. She later went on to Simpson University where she obtained her multiple subject teaching credential. Julie enjoys life in the "State of Jefferson," where she lives with her husband and two children. As a family, they spend their time tromping around the Marble Mountains and Russian Wilderness. They also take pleasure in rafting, skiing, snowmobiling, off-roading, campfires, and living it up in the great outdoors. When she's not with her family, Julie spends her days teaching next door to her co-author, fellow prankster, and partner in crime, Tracy. The most recent of their crazy adventures was to take on the challenge of writing this series of novels about what life is like in their neck of the woods.
Born and raised in Northern California, Tracy Justice is a wife, mother, and full-time teacher. She graduated from CSU, Chico, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Liberal Arts. One of her fondest memories growing up was herding cattle in the Marble Mountains with her family. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, riding horses, running, hiking, swimming, and of course reading. After some encouragement from Julie, she decided to add "Co-author" to her ever growing bucket list. She never knew how much fun it would be to write a book with her best friends. She hopes you enjoy reading their books in the "Seasons of Jefferson Series" as much as she enjoyed writing them with Julie.
