Julie Wallin Kaewert

Born 1959 Omaha, NE (USA)

Omaha native and Omaha Westside graduate Julie Kaewert began to write mysteries after working for a London publisher. She lived in Bloomsbury for a time, and later made it a setting for her novels. Her detective series explores the intricacies of publishing and the manuscript trade. Famed London book dealer Ed Maggs, current proprieter of the famous Maggs Brothers Books, founded in Charles Dicken's day by Uriah Maggs, has allowed Kaewert to include him as a character in her fiction under his own name. Kaewert also co-wrote the novel that accompanied the screen play for the movie, The Avengers.

Kaewert has served on the boards of Boulder Country Day School and of Friends First, an organization that helps teens avoid risky behavior.

We appreciate corrections and additions to our information about authors, but please read the following guidelines and caveats carefully.

  • The Nebraska Authors database is based on publicly available sources. Unless you are the author contacting us in person, it helps us if you cite the source or sources of your information. We cannot include unsourced information in the database.
  • We may be appreciative of information we choose not to include in the publicly available database.
  • To include an image on an author profile, please send jpg attachment to nebraskaauthors@lincoln.ne.gov. A photo-release agreement is required before the image will be published on this site.
  • Because of the way we are staffed, expect corrections or additions to take time, sometimes up to three months.
  • While we initially included some actual links to external URLs in the database, we will in the future no longer provide functioning links. We will instead record the presence of specific external materials in language that we hope will help intelligent users find it themselves. Web rot, in which actual materials remain online but undergo changes in their URLs, is too demanding in terms of staff time for us to hope to keep external links current.

Please copy, fill out the form below, and email it to heritage@lincoln.ne.gov to suggest a change.
