JULIANNA DEERING has always been an avid reader and a lover of storytelling, whether on the page, the screen or the stage. This, along with her keen interest in history and her Christian faith, shows in her tales of love, forgiveness and triumph over adversity.

“We forget sometimes that parents--even uncles--have lives of their own. Worlds of their own. Sides of themselves we never see and never dream are there. Even when someone describes those lives to us, we can't believe them. We know better.”
Julianna Deering, Rules of Murder

“Nick: "You look rather done in. Anything wrong?"
Drew shrugged. "Not really. The world's not a fit place to live in, but unfortunately there just aren't any other viable options."
"Cheery as always." Nick grinned. "I understand you've been up to London again. Presumably it wasn't to see the queen."
"No, I believe Tuesdays she does the ironing and isn't at home to visitors."
"Pity. All that way for nothing.”
Julianna Deering

“At least, if your will is as you say, it proves definitively that I couldn't be the murderer." Nick put on an exaggerated expression of relief. "I was beginning to worry."
"I'm happy to set your mind at ease, Nick, old boy, but I must admit I've long held you above suspicion in this case."
"Really?"
"Oh, by all means. Obviously our murderer is of superior intelligence and nerve. I ruled you out from the start.”
