Julie Kibler


Julie Kibler began writing Calling Me Home after learning a bit of family lore—as a teen, her paternal grandmother fell in love with a young black man, but their families tore them apart. Then, while digging into the past, she discovered her father’s hometown had signs at the city limits warning blacks to be gone by sundown. She is currently writing her next novel and blogs regularly with five other women writers, all transplants to North Texas, at What Women Write.
