Sheila Julson

Sheila Julson is a freelance writer who enjoys capturing the stories behind Milwaukee’s happening food, beverage and urban farming scenes. She also pens articles about holistic health, green living, sustainability and human-interest features. As a long-time fiction writer, her novel, Thorn, placed in the General Fiction quarterfinalist round of the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. When she’s not hammering away at a computer keyboard, she enjoys hiking, gardening, vegetarian cooking, sewing, making homemade wine (and drinking it) and any other urban homesteading pursuits that catch her interest. She lives on Milwaukee’s South Shore with her musician husband and a spoiled hound dog.
