Julie Bronson lives next to the Iowa border and accidentally discovered the beauty of old abandoned houses about ten years ago. The magic of the internet showed her that she isn’t the only one who loves these gems. Many of the places she started out photographing have vanished, so she hopes this book will preserve the memories of those, and the ones that are fading away, for many years. Her day job is selling semi-truck parts and she has been married to the same patient man since 1980. She has no kids, except for the four-legged fuzzy kind.
