Reference librarian pens duel-timeline novel, her second

Julie Tulba has found that her master's degree in library science has helped her to do research for her historical novels.

Julie Tulba's latest novel moves through time, just as its author moved through the world.

“The Dead Are Resting” is the second novel for the part-time reference librarian at Butler County Community College.

She started writing the historical fiction novel in March 2020 after she returned from trips to England and Southeast Asia in 2019 before COVID-19 restrictions made travel in 2020 very difficult.

“It's mind-boggling to think I could use my passport and travel to the other side of the earth,” she said. “There were no constraints.”

She began globe-trotting after leaving her job as a technical services librarian at the Butler Public Library. She spent a month touring France, Germany and the Netherlands and another month visiting Singapore, Cambodia and Vietnam.
