Julie Eshbaugh lives in Philadelphia after having called Utah, France, and New York City home. Early on, Julie focused her artistic energies on filmmaking and online video. She made two short films and then spent several years producing an online video series for teens, which received several honors from the Webby Awards. Creating videos for teens led to writing novels for teens, and Julie has never looked back. Obsidian and Stars is the sequel to her debut novel, Ivory and Bone.
