Julie Thompson

Julie Thompson

United States

Julie Thompson (pseudonym, "Marie Lopez") didn't like studying Spanish in school. But, she plugged away at it anyway, never dreaming that she would spend the rest of her life speaking, writing, reading and teaching it! She interrupted her college studies to begin volunteer work, working with English and Spanish speakers, and hasn't stopped yet. When she moved to South America, she added yet another language to the list: Ecuadorian Quichua.

Currently she is the owner of ESEN Translation Services, a minority/woman owned small business, offering language services in English, Spanish and Ecuadorian Quichua. These including translation, interpretation, proofreading, transcription, editing and language learning.

She has been a literacy and language instruction volunteer in South America since she moved there in 1989. In 2011, she published the book, "Wanna Go Where?", a guide into planning for a move abroad. Her e-guide, "5 Reasons to NOT learn a Second Language" was published in 2015. And now, she's working on a series of children's stories, based on her aunt's two Russian Blue cats, the objective of this book proposal.

Update #1 - Here we go! April 4, 2016

I thought I had sent out an update a couple of weeks ago; sorry about that!

Actually, it's been rather difficult for me to concentrate since Saturday. If you've read my bio, you'll see that I've been a volunteer in Ecuador, South America, for the past 26 years. It's been such a tense and anxious time for me since the terrible earthquake only five days ago. Most of my friends have checked in, but there are still some that I know nothing about and am very, very anxious for. The hardest thing is to not be able to do anything except to pray. But, I also know that sometimes opportunities arise when you least expect them, and so I'm trying to get myself prepared for any such opportunity.

So, first update: preliminary sketches of our two stars, Olivia and The Mush. Please feel free to suggest, point out or observe. Thanks!
