ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Julie W. Buscher

I was born and raised in rural Central Utah. I graduated from LDS Business College, Salt Lake City, Utah; thereafter I worked as a secretary and also a paralegal secretary for many years, and am an experienced business writer. I’ve traveled the country, and lived in the western United States all my life.\r\n\r\nI enjoy writing, and have written poems, prose, funny Xmas newsletters, and short humorous stories (Erma Bombeck style).\r\n\r\n1 - “Homer the Helicopter Grand Canyon Adventures” is my first book. A shorter version was selected as a finalist in Shamrock Publishing Co.’s 1997 children’s fiction contest.\r\n\r\n2 - My humorous short story“One Wife’s Viewpoint” was published in the April 1994 issue of International Cessna 180-185’s Aircraft Newsletter.\r\n\r\n3 - Homer the Helicopter Grand Canyon Adventures eBook was judged the 2007 winner in the ebook category of the Indie Excellence Awards by a panel of publishing experts in editing, marketing, publicity and design. The award is sponsored by Smarketing, LLC.\r\nHomer eBook is duplicates of printed version.\r\n\r\n4 – I was invited by Experimental Aircraft Association to be one of their featured authors in “Authors’ Area” at the 2008 Airventure Convention, Oshkosh, WI, which convention I did attend. (See custom bookmark given out at convention, and also to individuals and other organizations.)\r\n\r\nMy other interests include genealogy and playing the piano.\r\n\r\nPresently, I live in Brighton, Colorado, with hubby, Charlie, a private pilot—(I myself a previous pinch-hitter pilot), where we fly his vintage Cessna 180 aircraft. My inspiration for writing Homer’s story came from
