Hi, welcome to the website of DL Jung, YA historical fiction author and occasional writer of fantasy and horror. This is my blog about my writing and all things bookish and historical, and the frequent intersection of the two.
Available in e-book and paperback
The first in a series of three YA historical fiction novels, recounting the wartime experiences of Aelita “Aelya” Makarova. Inspired by the true story of women combat pilots of the Soviet Union during World War II.

Xin li shi is Chinese for “new histories.” It is also a homophone (pronounced shin-lee-shuh) for something that comes “from the heart.” Xinlishi Press was created by DL Jung as an independent publisher to tell stories inspired by history, whether they are telling little known episodes from our real world or imagined histories of fantasy realms.
