My name is Julia and I currently live in Canton, Michigan with my wonderful fiancee Joe. We are expecting our first child in June and that is what inspired us to begin writing children's books. My little sister has been so kind as to illustrate these books for us.

As for my young adult novels they are being worked on but they are on the back burner. Stay tuned.

First, I heard the song 'Valcanoe' and thought of a rebellious character who really couldn't help but cause people pain. Scott was born. The rest of the story unfolded from the idea of him. (less)

Carrie Three Temporarily Postponed

Hey guys! In order for the final book in the Carrie series to meet the standards I have set in my mind, I have decided to take a pause from the storyline. I am currently working on another project as I allow book three to develop in my mind.

'Mind Games' will be available very soon. Sorry for the delay!

“No,” Scott’s voice cracked, “Carrie look at me.”
Carrie bit down on her lip and tried to focus on the healing process. The usual sensation of the energy flowing through her finger tips was a weak haze and it completely disappeared when Scott whispered, defeated, “Carrie, please.”
Julia Barkey

“I might’ve found a way to cure them.” Crystal said in a jumble of words.
“Cure them? Permanently?”
“Yes sir.”
He thought about this a moment before speaking, “You’ve got two weeks, can you do it by then?”
“That’s plenty of time sir, thank you.”
Julia Barkey

“There’s someone here.”
“I know.” She said, “Where’s Scott?”
“I’m not sure,” He said, “I thought you were going to wait outside with Nichole and Matt.”
“We decided to come in.”
“You mean they’re in here too?”
“Okay…” He said calmly, “You stay here.”
She nodded as he turned to go.
“Oh, and Carrie.”
“Could you actually listen to me this time?” He asked with a faint smile on his face.”
Julia Barkey

“The pity in Matt’s eyes was almost too much to bear but she found herself unable to turn away. She had only seen that look once and that was when he almost lost Nichole. The sparkle in his eye burned out as if it was nothing more than a dying ember leaving his brown eyes dark and cold. Like Scott’s.”
Julia Barkey

“ “Alright, who’s first?” Crystal asked once Carrie was in the chair that she had instructed her to sit in.
Everyone was quiet.
“Who wants to draw straws?” Matt asked. Carrie hadn’t realized until this moment that the subtle smile on his face never faded. It was as though he found humor in everything that was going on.
Will slowly raised his hand, his other hand was left shoved in the pocket of his blue jeans, “I’ll do it.” ”
