Julia Ann Charpentier


  • Dr. Kate Gale, Core Faculty, California State University, Dominguez Hills
"I have had the pleasure of working with Julia Ann Charpentier as her mentor at California State University, Dominguez Hills. Julia exhibited exceptional writing skills and true dedication towards the craft. She is able to present coherent, well thought-out ideas and build upon them, applying consistently solid judgment. She has an experienced voice and reasons exceptionally well under pressure. Julia is a very talented writer and I give her my strongest endorsement."


  • Dr. Katherine Wikoff, Professor, Milwaukee School of Engineering
“I met Julia almost twenty years ago, through our nonfiction writing about romance fiction. I admired her well-researched and fascinating work on Rudolph Valentino, the 1920s silent film star. Then, about five years ago, Julia contacted me to ask for an interview, related to my job as a college writing professor, regarding connections between literature and business communication. She is a skillful interviewer who does her homework; she came well prepared to our session and asked excellent questions. In particular, Julia has a special talent for casting a wide net, gathering unusual information, and then writing articles that are fresh and surprising in some way–an interesting take on a familiar topic or a twist of insight regarding a well-worn assumption.”

“Julia Ann Charpentier was one of the most dependable freelance writers I worked with during my time as managing editor at TDmonthly Magazine. She consistently delivered well-crafted articles with in-depth reporting on or before deadline. Her pieces required few edits, and she was a pleasure to work with. I would work with her again in a heartbeat.”
