We’re thrilled to introduce you to her latest work, with a reading from Julie herself, from Spirited

Driven by passionate, courageous female characters

Spirited is a beautifully haunting and atmospheric historical novel about three brave women with unspeakable truths in their heart.

Set in Victorian England, Viola is an amateur photographer struggling with the grief of her father’s death and the sterile atmosphere of her marriage to her childhood friend, Jonah.

When she discovers a talent for capturing ghostly images on camera, Viola comes to the attention of a spirit medium, and a powerful attraction between the two women is sparked.

As each woman puts herself at risk, secrets are brought to light that will change their lives forever.

At what cost will they find their freedom?
