Julia Heaberlin is the author of the international bestseller BLACK-EYED SUSANS and the upcoming PAPER GHOSTS, which will be released in the U.S. and the UK in April 2018. Julia describes PAPER GHOSTS as a creepy road trip across Texas with an old man who claims dementia and a young woman hunting very personal answers to a series of cold cases to which he is linked. Julia's books, which have sold to more than seventeen countries, include two other psychological thrillers set in Texas, PLAYING DEAD and LIE STILL. She still considers herself a journalist and has long held an interest in true crime. Before writing novels, she was an award-winning editor for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, The Detroit News, and The Dallas Morning News. (Almost) a native Texan, Heaberlin lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area where she is at work on her next novel.
