About Julia

Lover of Stories

Julia Buckley has loved reading and writing since childhood. She is still a sucker for a great story, and, like any bibliophile, she loves libraries, Scholastic Book Fairs, the smell of ink, pads and pens, typewriters, and books you can't put down. She lives in a Chicago suburb with her husband Jeff, a giant dog named Digby and three spoiled but wonderful cats. She has two grown sons and a beautiful daughter-in-law.


"There are always the dreams of 'someday.' Those lovely images one has of spectral landscapes, decorating the imagination and glittering like gold."
