Except I'd have to be one of those companions with a boyfriend on the side, because of, you know, my husband. I really do love history, and I cast a broad net in my attempts to study and understand it. I do find, though, that I'm more drawn to European and Asian history than to American. And I'm pretty enamored of the Middle Ages. I guess that's no secret. :) (less)

That means so much to me. I'm flattered that you'd spend an entire weekend with my novels. :) It's always been one of the ironies of this business -- you give a novel a year or two years of your life, and people read it in a day. It feels unfair somehow. (But I'm very glad when readers drop whatever they're doing to read my stuff.) I will be publishing another YA novel before too long with Viking Young Readers Group, but I'm still in the idea stages so far so it's bound to be a while yet. You might try The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place. It's a bit younger, but I think it still has enough snark and wink-wink humor to appeal to an adult reader. It might tide you over! There's also Secondhand Charm, which has been cross-marketed to YA and upper Middle Grade. Thanks for writing!(less)

The Emperor's Ostrich by Julie Berry

Agonizing. From the brutal, gray, blood-soaked devastation of trench warfare, Remarque's novel creates moments of beauty, all the more poignant and heartbreaking for being the sacrificial offerings of lives wasted by a needless war. Many novels have ...more

The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry
“To be needed is one way to be safe. The other is to have money.”
Julie Berry
More of Julie's books…
“I don't believe in miracles, but if the need is great, a girl might make her own miracle.”
Julie Berry, All the Truth That's in Me

“There is a curious comfort in letting go. After the agony, letting go brings numbness, and after the numbness, clarity. As if I can see the world for the first time, and my place in it, independent of you, a whole vista of what may be. Even if it is not grand or inspiring, it is real and solid, unlike the fantasy I've built around you. I will do this.
I will triumph over you.”
Julie Berry, All the Truth That's in Me

“I don't suppose you believe love could last forever."
I'd hurt him. I looked away, chagrined.
"You're mistaken," I said. "I do believe it could. But it would depend upon the lovers."
He folded his arms and watched me, forcing me to return his gaze. Oh, those eyes.
"And what kind of lovers must they be?" he asked.
The You-and-Me kind?”
Julie Berry, The Amaranth Enchantment
