Julie Christine Johnson's In Another Life

A native of the Pacific Northwest, Julie Christine Johnson is a runner, a hiker, a wine geek and, since returning to Washington’s Olympic Peninsula after years of travel took her around the world, a writer whose short stories and essays have appeared in various journals including Mud Season Review, Flash Fiction by Women Writers, and Cirque: A Literary Journal of the North Pacific Rim.

In October of 2010, Julie took her first writing class at the Richard Hugo House in Seattle, and her first short story, “Water Child,” was published in the June 2011 anthology Stories for Sendai. In July of 2012, she penned the first words of her first novel, and in February of 2016, that novel, In Another Life, was published by Sourcebooks.

Steeped in the rich history and romantic landscape of rural France, In Another Life tells the story of a woman’s quest to solve an ancient murder and free a man haunted by ghosts from his past. As the suspenseful tale unfolds, she learns that the dead may not be as far from us as we think. READ MORE

The music of French rock band Nordic’s Yell reflects the diverse musical tastes of the band, with influences ranging from hard rock to grunge to acoustic blues, and on their first album, released in August of 2014, the band provides a glimpse into their unique musical universe. Brothers Niels (vocals, guitar) and Lorenzo (guitar) began playing music together at the age of 13 and founded Nordic’s Yell in 2013 and, in just two short years, have developed a dedicated underground following.

On Nordic Yell’s debut EP, recorded at Magic Studio in Saint Peray, France, Niels’ haunting vocals combine with Lorenzo’s layered, complex melodies to form songs that memorably toe the line between darkness and hope.
