Julian Winters is a former management trainer who lives in the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, and has been crafting fiction since he was a child creating communities around his hand-drawn "paper people." He began writing LGBTQ character-driven stories in online communities as a teen and has developed a devoted fan fiction following. When he isn't writing or using his sense of humor to entertain his young nephews, Julian enjoys reading, experimental cooking in the kitchen, and watching the only sports he can keep up with: volleyball and soccer. Running with Lions is his first novel.

#1 AMAZON BESTSELLER | TEEN & YOUNG ADULT LGBT FICTION
GOLD WINNER, 2018 IBPA BENJAMIN FRANKLIN AWARDS

“A warm, funny, smart and poignant debut, full of heart and full of hope. I loved the
adorably cute relationship that emerges between Sebastian and Emir, I loved the humour,
and I loved being reminded what it’s like to be a teenager during a long, hot, messy
summer, when everything is new and exciting, anything seems possible, and the world is
opening out in front of you. I throughly enjoyed it and hope it gets all the accolades and
praise it deserves.”—SIMON JAMES GREEN, author of Noah Can’t Even

“Funny, wise, and ridiculously romantic. It hit me right in the heart.”—BECKY ALBERTALLI,
author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

“A heartwarming freshman novel from an author poised to be a modern Matt Christopher
for an older audience.”—Kirkus Reviews
