Julie Means Kane is an award-winning writer living in Hillsdale, New York. She has been a sous-chef, private investigator, back-to-the-lander, jeweler, teacher’s aide, newspaper manager, business consultant and mother of two.
Currently, she is working on a narrative history of the life of her grandfather, Gaston B. Means, arch-swindler and master liar. She has found the roles of consultant and swindler remarkably similar — both require belief in oneself and the ability to instill confidence in others. Perhaps it runs in the family.
