Julian Coleman is my pseudonym. I’m really not hiding behind an assumed name. Julia is the first name of one grandmother, and Coleman is the maiden last name of the other. It is my way of honoring the strong women who came before me. In reality, I’m not woman enough to fill their shoes, but I try.
If you’ve followed me on Facebook or Twitter, then you know that my writing sprung up as my way of coping with my nightmares. I’ve always had them. My thoughts as to why are kind of simple. I think there is something screwy with my DNA.
Facebook friends and Twitter followers have shared their nightmares with me. I am grateful. Now, we don’t feel so strange. That’s a good feeling.

Really, Cher? A Story With a Dog In It
Humor/Contemporary Women's Fiction
The stray was a mutt that resembled a small German Shepherd. She looked more wolfish than domesticated canine. Her coat was brindle, almost the same color as my skin, with irregular dark markings that looked like zigzag lines of tar. She had wolf ears that she rotated like antennas. The staff gushed about her cheerful personality. Clearly that persona had departed as soon as I had entered. We studied each other cautiously like opposing gunslingers facing off in a dusty western town.
She just seemed standoffish and sneaky to me. Maybe it was just me. Maybe I was emitting a vibe that was sloughing off like dandruff. But I saw what I saw. We were eying each other suspiciously.
