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.
