Julie Barker was born and raised in west Texas, and currently resides in Quanah, Texas, with her husband and three children. She maintained her west Texas roots into college when she attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, receiving a degree in social work. Julie has grown up surrounded by the ranching heritage, and felt drawn to share this way of life through the adventures of the little cowboy jackrabbit, Hitchin’ Post.
