Narrated by: Juliana Erickson

Imagining herself as the heroine in all her favorite stories, Juliana Erickson has always enjoyed exploring new and fantastic worlds. Off the pages, she has explored much of our own world, even calling Hawaii and Italy her other homes. Between adventures, and workouts at the kickboxing gym, she likes watching anything with dinosaurs, vikings, or aliens. Juliana’s mild-mannered alter ego is an instructional designer living in SoCal with her husband and their art collection. Follow the adventures of Juliana at VaultandVeil.com.
