Background Information

  I am a native of Los Angeles, born and raised. I began a career in the business world, then had children, so I decided to stay home and be with them. Writing, for me, started in my 40s, six or seven years ago. It just sort of happened—like someone waking up one day and realizing they could sing (a personal fantasy of mine—but I digress.) I began writing fan fiction for a TV show I’d become disenchanted with. For those unfamiliar, fan fiction is the writing of stories where the characters—and usually the setting—have already been created by someone else. Fan fiction can be written based on TV shows, books, movies, comics, Anime...anything where the characters and basic idea of the story have already been created, with the understanding by everyone that rights to those characters and that show/book/movie/comic belong to someone else. I started writing what I’d like to see happen, with the plot, the characters, etc. There are a lot of fan fiction writers out there, and many places where the work can be posted online. Out of that came the first pages of TESTAROSSA.


I love crime fiction and cop shows, so I tried to do both with TESTAROSSA.

Crime Fiction Author Julie Dolcemaschio
Things are never how they seem, especially in police work. John Testarossa is an LAPD cop with an NYPD attitude, and he has seen it all. The dead, the dying and the decomposing are all in a day’s work for the red-headed Italian from New York. And when your day begins with pulling a frat boy out of the Venice Canals alive and ends with an arm rolling up on the shores of Santa Monica Bay, nothing surprises anymore. But when the dead body on which the arm was once attached is discovered, John and his partner, Alex Ortiz, enter the world of college sports, athletes, and the illegal drugs that enhance their performance. The detectives navigate through the worst the City of Angels has to offer, and John and Alex become involved in an investigation right out of today’s headlines. A young college student, sports, and the drugs that keep athletes competitive come together in an intriguing story of greed and vengeance—a vengeance John understands. John has lived with the rage and the ultimate revenge he took years ago after suffering a loss that came to define him as a young boy, and ultimately as a man. John carries a dark secret, and it is through his narrative, and a compelling back-story, that the true man is discovered. When John meets the beautiful Dr. Karen Gennaro, a woman with a few secrets of her own, he falls hard. But can he sustain his love for a woman he knows he will only hurt in the end? Can he give himself over to a woman whom he may leave a widow one day, like his father did to his mother? And can he love a woman and keep the secret he knows will drive her away from him forever? But it is the relationship between the detective and his partners that keeps him going. John is a dedicated cop—and one who has made mistakes. And as John, Alex, and their brave and dedicated partners fight the good fight, it is the bond that is formed between these people in the face of death and the risks that come with being a Los Angeles Police detective that sustains him. And when that deep bond is torn apart in a senseless act of violence that is commonplace on the streets of Los Angeles, will his past, and a desire for vengeance, destroy him? On the Westside of Los Angeles, where Venice Beach, Marina del Rey, and the dream of Abbot Kinney’s Venice Canals paint a picture of bliss, Testarossa will take you on a deeper, darker journey.
