About Julane Herr Powell

Since a very young age, when my Grandma read to me, I've wanted to become an author. I wanted to carry on the rich tradition of story telling that existed in my family. I ached for my readers to laugh, cry, and feel emotions hidden deep in their souls.

Time and circumstances were not in my favor to write until a few years ago when I found myself unemployed, living alone, recovering from an abusive relationship, and desperately struggling to keep my sanity. Times were difficult but I began plucking away at a keyboard and found therapy in the written word.

The story of Lillie is not my first attempt at writing a book, but it's a story that begs to be told. In her story, I hope you discover something in this timeless tale that speaks to you.


Review by: Cindy Gibson on Oct. 5, 2015 :
Lillie is an amazing story of love, endurance, and faith. I was swept up in Lillie's life story. I could smell her pies baking, I could see the river side when the gypsies visited and I could feel the green grass between my toes. I was carried away in the Pony Preacher's revival meeting feeling the power of his words and the elation of his healing. Julane Herr Powell has mastery of language and the ability to communicate the complexity and texture of a scene. The story is sad, but I am happy Lillie had Julane to tell her story.
