A note from Julia: I love to read anything that catches my interest – my books reflect this eclectic taste: Paranormal time travel romance, London criminals and fat old detectives, I even created an alternate universe where mythical beasts exist.

The Griffin's Boy
In a world where only those of noble birth are invited to join the elite Griffin Riders, orphan Neb is destined for a life of drudgery. His path changes when he steals the disobedient young griffin Balkind in an attempt to prove that you don't need noble blood to become a hero. He'll risk his life and soul to become a mere Griffin's Boy. He'll also lose his heart to the enigma known as Samara.
An Explosive Time
Detective Inspector Crombie of the London Met deals with alligators, elephants, and a cosy little arrangement between the underworld and Whitehall that threatens to send his world supernova. It really doesn’t surprise him to discover the Celtic Cousins, the collective bane of his life, are the catalysts of this explosive time.
A Ripple in Time
Wren makes a psychic connection with a girl emigrating to America in 1912. Through his eyes, she is able to foresee the fate of the ship taking her across the Atlantic.
Consequently, RMS Titanic steams safely into New York Harbour: an anomaly which creates devastation for future generations. Wren must somehow turn back time and repair history; even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear.

What can go wrong? …

Detective Inspector Crombie finds himself spending Christmas in the Italian equivalent of the House of Usher. After picking a fight with the wrong cat, Crombie finds a poetic justice in having the very last word. Detective Crombie features in "A Raucous Time" has an honourable mention in "A Ripple in Time" and takes centre stage in "An Explosive Time", in The Celtic Cousins' Adventures.
The Griffin Cryer
It's an easy mistake to make - instead of whistling and calling for her dog, fifteen year old Frankie accidentally summons a griffin and his rider from another world. The Rider is tall, blond and extremely rude. On the other hand, Balkind is the sweetest, most lovable griffin Frankie's ever met, and Frankie is determined to help the Rider and his griffin find a way back to their own world.
