Julie Goralka, after suffering writers interuptus (i.e., job and family), returns to her muse - the written word to explore just what it all means when the day is finally done.

Julia's 6th grade teacher wrote on her report card that he wanted an autographed copy of her first book. Since then, she has done very little writing aside from some creative writing classes 30 years ago and, more recently, a bit of journaling. Instead, Julie found herself working at a major Chicago-area bank, first as a word processor, then secretary and eventually a Division Coordinator for a marketing desk on the trading floor.
