Julia Buckley is a Chicago-area writer. She has written three mystery series with Berkley Prime Crime, including the best-selling Writer's Apprentice Series, which Mystery Scene calls "engaging, enjoyable, and surprising," while Kirkus dubs it "pleasantly old-fashioned." The Library Journal called Buckley "a writer to watch."

Buckley is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, and the Chicago Writers Association. She blogs about writing and mysteries at Mysterious Musings, where she has interviewed almost 200 other mystery writers about their work.

She teaches high school English and enjoys reading, playing Words With Friends, and spending time with her husband and two sons, along with their menagerie of animals.

Thank you for reading; I'm so glad you like my books. My most recent series is written under the name Veronica Bond--have you discovered those? The first is called Death in Castle Dark, and the second comes out in July. I also recently published a fourth Undercover Dish mystery called A Fatal Fettuccine. I'm looking into some new projects after that, so stay tuned!(less)
