Author Tags: Fiction

Also a massage therapist and teacher, Ottawa Valley-raised Julie Paul moved to Victoria and published her first collection of fiction, The Jealousy Bone, in 2008. Her second collection of twelve unsettling stories, The Pull of the Moon (Brindle & Glass 2014), received the twelfth $5,000 City of Victoria Butler Prize, presented by City of Victoria acting mayor Chris Coleman and sponsor Brian Butler. “I’m so grateful, I’m pinching myself,” she said. As her characters struggle for belonging, connection, love and forgiveness, Paul examines the world with a poet’s eyes focussing on relationships between lovers, families, friends, and the cost of secrets kept and then revealed. The title was selected as a Top 100 Book of 2014 by the Globe & Mail.
