Julie Dryja’s novel, “Puckshaw” is currently available on Amazon.com, Kindle and Barnes & Noble.
"Puckshaw" is a richly detailed saga of an American family as it rises to fame under the harsh glare of notoriety and falls into despair under a cloud of suspicion surrounding the murder of a young girl.
"Blood on the I-90" and "A Bride for Peter" complete the trilogy as vehicles for the continuing story line of two of Puckshaw's fearless, colorful detectives as they continue to solve crime with cunning and humor.
Born the youngest of fourteen children to immigrant parents, Julie Dryja was raised and educated in Western New York. By the age of twelve, scribbling into spiral notebooks to detail special events or landmark occurrences became a creative and emotional outlet for the youngster. In time, poetry, essays and short stories followed. Frequent, detailed journaling became her life-long love and served as the basis of her future writing projects. Many years would pass before her efforts were channeled into three full length novels.
After thirteen productive years in a religious community, (Sisters of Saint Joseph of Buffalo, NY) she returned to Niagara University to complete her Master's Degree. Her professional career included teaching math, continuing education instructor at Niagara Community College, owner and director of an early childhood center, (Lewiston Childcare of Lewiston, NY) and ownership of an historical travel agency in Niagara Falls, NY.

Upon her retirement, she traveled extensively while returning to her most creative undertaking--completing her novels. Julie is married and has one daughter, Francine. She resides with her husband, John in Lewiston, NY and Miami Beach, Florida.
