Works by Julio


As March blossoms into April, four characters find their lives and loves turned upside-down by fate, frustration and bad case of Spring Fever


Winter greenhouse


In a greenhouse in the depths of winter, a scientist prepares for her greatest achievement:  a hoard of decorative butterflies out of season.  But distractions abound


Maze made from a hedge


What begins as a gentle afternoon’s chit-chat between a boy and his grandma spirals sultrily into a midsummer night of desire, desperation and through-the-looking-glass darkness
