Julie Turner, former theater reviewer for Gay RVA who now blogs at Inkqueery, has a lifelong love affair with books. Her knowledge and expertise of fiction spans genre-specific (sci-fi, horror, romance, etc) to classic literature. Julie also enjoys non-fiction, particularly memoir, autobiography, and biography. As an out and proud bisexual, Julie encourages the work of LGBTQ writers through her work as CEO/co-owner of Better Beta Readers, offering manuscript review services for first-time and beginning writers. She offers proofreading, line editing, content editing (includes proof and line edits) and coaching/critique at reasonable rates.

Julie is currently working on her own manuscript, A Date With the Fairy Drag Queen. Before starting at Better Beta Readers, she spent twenty years working as a paralegal.
