Julie Wyckoff is a freelance writer and photographer. She is the author of the novel, "When Two Hearts Are One", the book-length narrative essay, "So Much More Than A Game", and the non-fiction book, "My Dear Wife: The Civil War Diaries and Letters of John Quigley".
"So Much More Than A Game" is about a young group of boys playing baseball with heart and spirit and joy...but not at the beginning of the season. Starting as a disparate group, some unhappy with being stuck with a woman coach, some battling their egos, some battling their confidence and some battling their fears, they grew into a team with purpose, and unity, and with a never quit attitude... and they had fun.
"My Dear Wife...." is about Julie's great great grandfather. His letters to his wife and his diary kept during the Civil War were passed down to her. She compiled, edited and annotated and published them. They are source material. John Quigley didn't perform great heroic feats, but carried out his duties with honor even while he suffered to see his family and grew angry when he couldn't obtain a furlough. His papers create snapshots of historical events from one man's perspective.
Julie is the producer of the video documentaries, 'Where the River Flows Clean', 'A Matter of Attitude' and "Grand Adventure-The Journey of Grand River Expedition '90'.
Julie has also published short stories, articles and narrative essays in various publications over the past 30 years.
