New Book! The Calling of Crows

Hello All! I am thrilled to announce that my second novel, The Calling of Crows, will be available just in time for Christmas! This is another Historical Paranormal Novel, but with a historical...


Hillery Louise Ashford, heiress of a plantation long tormented by the curse of a voodoo priestess,

returns to the states after an extensive education in France during the political unrest of the opening days of America’s Civil War.

In route to her Louisiana home Hillery meets, and falls in love with Stuart Michaels, a renowned Washington artist.

As the couple become inseparable the realization that they are on opposing sides of a war that threatens to destroy a nation

is daunting enough without the complications and additional obstacles that they will encounter. Hillery, however,

is obligated to travel to her family home where she must go deeply into her ancestral lineage in order to put an end to the misery

that the curse has cast upon its occupants. While she is spiritually guided by the gift of sight, to her astonishment she discovers

that Stuart, too, shares an equally unusual sense of perception. The pair team up to solve the puzzle and free the people that are her

only remaining family. Marietta, the ghost of Hillery’s mother is there to pave the way, but Hillery must take a fresh look at her

political views if she intends to have a happy union with the man of her dreams. While she is dealing with these disturbing consequences

Stuart is forced to go off to battle leaving Hillery to go to his aid as often as he comes to hers. The horrors of Libby Prison and the

perils of the Underground Railroad factor into their new reality, and the couple despair of ever finding the nuptial bliss they each desire.

The young lovers must face loss and tragedy, both together and on their own, in order to gain the future they seek.

The Plantation Is...

A poignant love story spanning the years of the American Civil War, a ghostly tale

that ties a young heiress to her past forcing her to uncover the secrets of her family lineage,

the curse of a voodoo queen that torments the populace of a crumbling plantation,

The Plantation is based on factual historical events and wrapped in paranormal happenings.

What Our Readers Say...

“I love how the narrative was interwoven into factual historical background; a great love story entwined with the supernatural. An excellent read!”

Dr. Robin R. West Associate Professor of History, Madisonville Community College

“A passionate tale of two young lovers who come together during the hardships of America’s Civil War, The Plantation is a mesmerizing ghost story of intricately woven mysteries on a plantation long cursed by a voodoo priestess. The heroine is a woman gifted with the clarity of sight who allows her dreams and intuitions to guide her. Whether depicting foods, furnishings, prisons, or battlefields, the author’s detailed descriptions both impressed and intrigued me. I found myself mesmerized by the cliff-hanger presented at the end of each and every chapter. It was an impossible novel to put down.”

The Calling of crows is full of finite details that allow the reader to paint a vivid picture of the harrowing lives of the native women and children in 1864, and how their footsteps paved the path forward for future generations. The author allows you to travel from the past through time with historical accuracy and a paranormal twist. The need to know more will keep you reading! I felt like I knew the characters, Awinita and Amara, as their strengths infused me. This is a great read that gives history and insight to a period and people.

Julie Jones has written an intriguing plot weaving threads of interesting, but little known factual history, along with ancient mystical events, plus a murder mystery that threatens our heroine, Amara, an independent young woman living on her own on a Midwest American farm. All three themes present a world of confusion and awe for young Amara, whose strength and intelligence will surprise and delight the reader, who will undoubtedly, like myself be motivated to read more whenever possible.

I love the way the author intertwined the lives of two very interesting girls from different centuries with such passion and enthusiasm! The history of both 1864 and 1970 was factual and well researched. I found the mythical parts of the story so thrilling that I read it in record time! It is a real page-turner!
