About Me

Hello friends! My name is Julie Navickas and I am the author of the Trading Heartbeats Trilogy. When I’m not writing, I spend my time serving as the executive director of The Writing Champions Project, a global writing community. I am also the public relations manager with Burning Soul Press and am an award-winning instructor in the School of Communication at Illinois State University where I teach coursework in writing for public relations, magazine production and design, and public speaking.

I earned my master’s degrees in organizational communication and English studies with an emphasis in book history, and a bachelor’s degree in public relations, graduating cum laude from Illinois State University. I am passionate about investing in my community and will often take on freelance or contractual jobs to help non-profits implement strategic social media strategies.

Additionally, I serve as an adjunct faculty member and continuing education instructor at Heartland Community College and am a national board member for the Association for Women in Communications. I’m a mom to three children: Lillian, Colton, and Brady and have been happily married to my high school sweetheart, Tommy for ten years.
