Literary Fiction, Military Fiction
I’m currently (as of 8 September 2020) a law student at the University of Texas at Austin. Prior to law school, I taught creative writing at John Hopkins’ Center for Talented Youth program, and worked as an editor for 1966: A Journal of Creative Nonfiction. I’m a graduate of Trinity University, where I majored in English and minored in creative writing. I’ve always had a passion for writing literary fiction, and after continuously reading and rereading my two favorite novels, The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien and The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers, I decided to write my own story about a soldier’s return home from Afghanistan.
My novel Indivisible is about the way that time itself both heals and scars us, how time pushes us to points where we must choose between breaking or making peace with senselessness and tragedy. It’s a novel about strength and, at times, the absence of it.
Update 12 February 2020: I recently had a flash fiction piece, A Bookmark Near the End, published by the NY Times, which is pretty exciting.

“Indivisible by Julia Camp is a serious book. You know a book is serious when there’s a suicide on page two and when tears are streaming down your cheeks on page three. … All war veterans deserve our respect and often our sympathy, but this book helps us see and especially feel why. … Like all great works of art—Hamlet, say—there are no answers. Great works leave us with questions, not resolutions. They don’t satisfy; they provoke. They change us. Indivisible has left me with all those questions I thought I’d solved long ago. It’s a serious thing to ask those questions, and Indivisible is a serious book.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Jon Michael Miller (5 STARS)
