Found this site whilst searching for secondhand copies of a few Julie
Ellis books. I am so glad her relatives are keeping the interest alive.
Many Julie Ellis books are so filled with historical data and are so
research heavy I am just amazed she was able to publish so many in a
lifetime. My favorites are
The Only Sin
The Velvet Jungle
The Hampton Heritage, and the other two Hampton books I am still looking
No Greater Love am still looking for that too.
I will always look for Ellis in every 2nd hand bookshop I go into and
troll ebay for them. Thanks for keeping her memory alive. She was
For many, many years I have owned the original cover painting for the
1971 paperback romance CHATEAU SAXONY by Susan Richard. I had purchased
it at an art auction in New York City. And it was only tonight that I
learned that Susan Richard is a pseudonym for Julie Ellis. And I now
understand the meaning of the pseudonym. Terribly sad that she died in
I like so many others have stumbled upon Julies books and have found
that I cant put them down. I have also read all her books that our local
library has so looked online to find more titles of hers and hope to be
able to locate more of them what will we do now that she has found
another place to rest and write. God Bless
I have just finished reading a book from Ms Ellis, I enjoyed it so
much so that I would like to read all her books. I am so sorry for your
So sorry to hear of the passing of Ms. Ellis in 2006. I frequently look
for new writers and stumbled upon books by Julie Ellis recently. I have
been able to obtain several and have enjoyed them tremendously. Will
definitely be looking forward to reading more. The stories are full of
warmth, they're engaging, and informative.
A few days ago I went to my library to pick up some books I had
requested on line. One book was included that I had not requested but I
did not realize it until I got home. It was.. No Greater Love. I flipped
through it and decided I definitely wanted to read it. Once started I
did not do much else with my free time. I enjoyed it so much I decided
to check on line to find out more about Julie Ellis and other books she
might have written. It was with great sadness that I read on her web
site that she had died in February 2006.
Strange that I would have this sense of loss for a women I never knew.
Her book touched me. I am looking forward to reading more of her work,
in the future. I am sorry, Susan and Richard, for the loss of your
I Just read East Wind. I was surprised how much I like it. Never had a
big interest in Hong Kong, World War I or Jews and still the book was
exciting and great. Now I will just pick up her books and not see what
they are about first.
Hello, I just wanted to say what a wonderful writer Julie was. I stumbled across The Only Sin about a few days ago and fell completely in love with it. I was so excited I wanted to get on the web and learn more about her. I am so sorry for your loss, but know that her work will live on and be loved for generations.
My daughter and I are addicted to reading Julies
books. We cannot get enough of them and find it difficult at times to find them in out book stalls in South
Africa. She is our first priority when seeking for a good book to read.
If and when we do find one, or two, we are very quick to purchase them - it is almost like a prize possession. They keep us entertained from beginning to end. What an amazing writer. I have learnt to love the art of reading and sometimes find myself thinking how imaginative a mind can be.. just wish I had come across her books when I was a young lady then I could catch up with the reading of all her books.
So sorry to hear of your mothers passing. She was an amazing writer.
Just a question about what I hope is a typing error in the book, Fire Island Summer.
On page 157, Anne goes to Marks house to let Hannibal, the dog out. I will type what my copy of the book has written.
Hannibal was scratching at the door as she approached. She went inside, made love to him then let him out the back for a run.
I can only guess that instead of mading love, she was meant to make him lunch.
It did make me laugh though. I will be checking the Large Print copy we have, I work in a library.
I am really sad to hear of Julie passing. I had read a book by her years
ago and had lost it after I lent it to my uncle who soon died of cancer.
I have spent the last three years looking for the book as I thought it
was one of the best books I had ever read, but could not remember the
title. I found it today, it was Lasting Treasures. I looking forward to
reading the rest of her books, they are truly amazing.
I am sorry to hear that Mrs. Ellis passed away. I really enjoyed reading the books she had written. My condolences to family and friends She will never be forgotten
I'm so sorry to hear about the author of my favourite book passing
away. I received A woman for all seasons for my 15th birthday and have
read it time and time again. I love this book and don't go anywhere
without it. Sorry for your loss, she will never be forgotten.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of the writer, someone I got to
love through her writing, and your dear mother. I thoroughly enjoy
reading her books and have only conquered five of them to date as i read
them ever so slowly so not as to miss anything. I find it difficult to
put the books down once I am in possession of one as it is not easy to
find her books in South Africa. When I do search book sale standards,
your mothers books are the first that I seek. She will always be
remembered as my favourite author.
So sorry to hear of the passing of a great author and human being...i
will cherish the books that i have and will look forward to any more
that may be published...may peace be with all of her family and
friends...she will be missed but never forgotten

Dear Julie Ellis, As a young Jewish woman years ago, I read as many of your books, family sagas, as I could get my hands on and loved everyone. To my delight, I found Far To Go at the local library and have just started it. I will savour every page. Thank you for writing such beautiful books. Family sagas were my mainstay in the 70s and 80s and when I find one now, I am in heaven. I am not into reading contemporary books at all but I just might try one written by Julie Ellis. God bless you.

Who are the crazy people invading your website? Just to say I love your books. I've followed you for many years, reading the family sagas and now the suspense books and the contemporary one. You've filled many empty hours with pleasure

I just finished reading "The Poles" and I had to write to tell you how moved I was by this book. My daughter found the book at a used book sale and bought it for me. I am a proud Polish American and I really treasure your story. You managed to weave the historical events with your characters beautifully. I'm in awe. All 4 of my grandparents emigrated to the US from Poland and I would love to write a family history narrative/novel as moving as yours. Any tips you'd care to share?

What a thrilled it is for me to speak with you. I've been reading your
wonderful novels since I can't remember. I'm in my 40's now, new to this
cyberworld, and I just had to write to you the minute I visited your
Website. I look forward to discover your newest work each time I visit the
UK Amazon website. Please don't ever stop writing, your gift of the words
is so much appreciated. I won't take too much of your time except to ask if
you ever had a pseudonym, and if so, under what name.

I just wanted to tell you how much i have loved reading your books,
initially i picked up a woman for all seasons because the book cover looked interesting and now when i go into a book store i look for your name, my favourites are lasting treasure and a woman for all seasons, i am a little disheartened to find not many shops in
Bundaberg keep your books but i find them simply amazing and unable to put them down.
A Daughter's Promise was my first Julie Ellis experience and I loved every second of it. It is such a beautiful story and I look forward to reading more. I can not tell you how much I loved it.

Hi Julie, I'm from Sydney Australia and i bought your book A Woman For All Seasons for my mother for mother's day, she loved it so much it started to read it and
I'm only half the way through but I can't seem to put it down. Which is a real problem in my one hour lunch break. LOL.
Anyway i just wanted to thank you because until now have not found an author/book that i enjoy this much!
I loved "A woman for all seasons" and "Trespassing Hearts", with Betsy as my fave character

Hi, Julie, I am a Chinese who have just finished your story of "No Greater Love" so that i come to look for you on the web, fortunately you are here and unfortunately the book i just read was not listed here. anyway, I like romantic things, and simply your style. Hope to read another one in short time due.
I just finished" No greater Love," and I came here to the computer to look you up. I really enjoyed that book, and I am going to find another one of your books very
soon. I like a book that keeps me interested, and that I can look forward to reading more of it in the evenings to relax and give flight to my imagination!
I like your style!

I have just began reading your Commitment for the second time. I am a hopeless romantic, born in 1940. Your characters seem so real to me, more than a lot of other authors I've read. I look forward to acquiring and reading many more of your wonderful Books. Sincerely Ron B.

I have been enthralled with the reading of The Velvet Jungle and Lasting Treasures, and I look forward to reading all your other books
3-18-03 Ms. Ellis, I have just finished rereading for probably the dozenth time your book, "Commitment". I must tell you that it is absolutely wonderful! I was very intrigued by all the historical points you touched on from a woman's point of view. Also very interesting was the history of television you provided. Although the paperback I have was published by Zebra Romance, you produced much, much more than a romance novel. I look forward to finding other titles and new ones coming. Keep them coming.

Hello Ms. Ellis, I don't know if you would remember me but I met you and your daughter Susan while vacationing in Bermuda with my mom Renee, sometime in the spring of 1978. I was only 13 at the time, but I remember you two being the single moms on that trip. My mom, passed away in 1998 from Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma -- she was only 64 (I wonder about the environmental connection to that). My mother lived in Brookhaven up until that time. I am still going through her things up here in Boston and I found the
inscribed copy you sent her of your novel "Savage Oaks." I knew I could find you on the internet! I have yet to read one of your books -- but I am a reader and it is next on the list. I was very excited to hear that you are an environmentalist. I will graduate form Harvard University with my undergraduate in Natural Sciences and a concentration in Environmental Management in June of this year and am currently thinking about law school. I do miss Long Island very much. I hope all is well with you and take care -- Holly Richardson
