Julie L. Kessler
lawyer traveler writer

Journalist. Lawyer. Traveler. Joyful vagabond.


Welcome to the official website of Julie L. Kessler.




Julie L. Kessler has always believed, as Hemingway said, in living life all the way up. From her home in Hawaii to Israel to Washington to France to her current hometown of Los Angeles – and nearly countless places in between – she's embraced travel, adventure, and the vagaries of fate her whole life.





Her book Fifty-Fifty: The Clarity of Hindsight offers a warm, moving, and at times tearfully funny account of her first fifty years on the planet.





This site tracks her writing, travel, appearances, and thoughts.





















Get Julie's whirlwind adventure of a memoir, Fifty-Fifty: The Clarity of Hindsight. You'll be deliriously glad you did!
