Sometimes the real essence of rock and roll can be reduced to an open E chord played like you really mean it.
- Brian May
Hi. I'm Julian. I put words in lines and then glue the lines together. If I do it right, you have feelings. It's a weird way to make a living, when you put it that way.
But hey, you're here, so welcome.

Julian Stuart is, according to a wide variety of sources, a writer.
Julian was raised in Canada and exported for the Australian market. They live mostly in front of a keyboard, with their husband and dog who remind them to go outside sometimes, and enjoy black tea, starlight, absurdism, sus2 chords, old book smell, and the word quirk.
Ironically, they have a great phone voice.
Their work has been published in Fireside Fiction, and on all major ebook retailers.
