Julie Thomas turns page on crime

Julie Thomas turns page on crime
By Nancy El-Gamel

Best-selling Waikato author Julie Thomas is taking a risk with her second novel. She's left historical romance behind in order to kill people. On the page, of course. And never has killing people been so much fun, especially since she's managed to tie up the blood with chocolate and wine. Research, clearly, was a blast.

Indeed, being a published author is a blast, especially since she almost wasn't. She produced her first novel as an ebook. When it sold 40,000 copies, a publisher noticed and sent her an email.

Her computer marked it junk and sent it to spam. "I nearly didn't open it at all," Thomas says.
