About Jule Selbo
Jule Selbo is a multi-award-winning novelist, playwright, and screenwriter whose original work explores an individual’s need for justice, love, and a sense of belonging. She’s written for legends like George Lucas, Aaron Spelling, George Romero, Sissy Spacek, Geena Davis, with projects at
Disney, Universal, MTV, Columbia Pictures, and more.
Growing up in Fargo, North Dakota, Jule created plays in her garage and made short films at the local junior high school. After earning a BFA at Southern Methodist University, and a Masters at UNC, Chapel Hill, she made her way to New York City, where her plays ran off-off-Broadway. Productions in regional theaters and Los Angeles opened opportunities for writing and producing gigs in network television and major film studios in Hollywood.
In the early 2000s, she earned her Ph.D. at the University of Exeter, and took on a professorship at CSU Fullerton, teaching Screenwriting classes and World Cinema. Her three books on screenwriting are curriculum in universities across the globe. She taught in Florence, Italy – and this is where her first novel, Find Me in Florence (Chatelaine First Place Award) was born. Other books include award-winning historical fiction: Dreams of Discovery, Based on the Life of Explorer John Cabot and Breaking Barriers, The Life of Laura Bassi (Finalist for the Goethe Award). Short stories have appeared in Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.

If you only listen to one of our podcasts this year, let it be this one…
As an indie press-seeking or self-published author, the dream is to get your hard-won book out into the hands of the public. Some will jump when offered the chance because it sounds too good to be true. In this episode, Kathleen and Penny Sansevieri go in-depth into the darker side of the publishing world. A caution for the hopeful to do their due diligence before handing money to a supposed publishing company or marketing firm.
This week’s episode of Talking Book Publishing is a rare treat for us. It’s never happened in the podcast’s two seasons that we get to talk with an author on the release day of their book. Today our guest Bruce Carlin is the author of Undeterred: How One Determined Vietnamese Orphan Carved Out a Place for Himself in America. This novelistic biography is an immigrant story of resilience and determination. Bruce and Kathleen discuss his writing process, the book’s subject, dive a little into the stock market, and how these pieces combine to tell a compelling once-in-a-lifetime story.
