DeAnna Julie Dodson

Author Bio:

DeAnna Julie Dodson (also writing as Julianna Deering) has always been an avid reader and a lover of storytelling, whether on the page, the screen or the stage. This, along with her keen interest in history and her Christian faith, shows in her tales of love, forgiveness and triumph over adversity. A fifth-generation Texan, she makes her home north of Dallas with three spoiled cats and, when not writing, spends her free time quilting, cross stitching and watching NHL hockey. Her first books, In Honor Bound, By Love Redeemed and To Grace Surrendered, are a trilogy of medieval romances. More recently, she has written four contemporary Annie's Attic Mysteries: Letters in the Attic, The Key in the Attic, The Diary in the Attic and The Legacy in the Attic, as well as Decadent Deceit (a contemporary/historical mystery) and A Ring of Deception (contemporary). Her new series of Drew Farthering mysteries set in 1930s England debuts with Rules of Murder and continues with Death by the Book, Murder at the Mikado, Dressed for Death, Murder on the Moor (Fall, 2016) and Death with Two Faces (Summer, 2017). She is represented by Wendy Lawton of the Books & Such Literary Agency (
