Introduction and a New Release:
Hi. My name is Julie C. Gilbert. I’m a high school chemistry teacher and a multi-genre writer. 2017’s been an interesting year so far. For one thing, I’ve been a fiction writer for well over a decade, but somehow, I caught the “must write nonfiction” bug bad this year.
Scroll down for the new releases.

~ David A. Hunt, Ph.D., The College of New Jersey, Professor of Chemistry

I Need a Return to Fiction!
To escape the craziness of normalcy, I’m releasing two fantasy books: Redeemer Chronicles II: The Holy War (October 3, 2017) and Guardian Angel Files: Spirit’s Bane (November 7, 2017). They’re in two very different flavors of fantasy.
The Holy War is about a girl who found out she’s the Chosen Redeemer and now has to race against evil forces to stop a worldwide war. This fantasy flavor’s more typical epic fantasy featuring shapeshifters, zombies, and magic. It’s light and fun, despite the zombies, promise.
Spirit’s Bane probably best fits the Christian fantasy genre or supernatural. You’ll get to meet Mina and Allister, a pair of guardian angels in training who have caught Satan’s attention. This is a fun book I’m hoping to turn into a series. I’m eager to know what happens next. What goes on in the world we cannot see?
