Julia Harris grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado.  During high school, she was captain of the golf and swimming team, president of the Habitat for Humanity club, a member of the National Art Honor Society, and occasionally (and usually unwillingly) dressed as an alligator mascot to illicit cheers for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox baseball team.

In 2013, she graduated from Saint Mary's College with a B.A. in English Literature and English Writing. She received Honors for her Senior Comprehensive project "Raw", and was awarded the 2013 Laurie A. Lesniewski Award for Creative Writing. She was on the editorial board for Chimes literary journal, and had works published there, and The Avenue, a literary journal for creative non-fiction. In the summers, she interned at SSPR, a public relations company in Chicago, IL.

Julia is a runner, bar trivia extradonaire, avid LOTR reader, and sister to two older brothers. She likes nature walks, Game of Thrones, singing karaoke and one day aspires to climb all the fourteeners in the Rocky Mountains. Julia enjoys writing abstract poems and has recently finished a chapbook about the deterioration of American sub-culture through the eyes of a split-personality. She also likes to cook Italian food.
