Julia Ingledew is first introduced in the first book, Midnight for Charlie Bone, when Charlie goes to Ingledew's Bookstore and Julia gives him the robotic talking doll and later, the Tolly Twelve Bells, which were designed to "wake" Miss Ingledew's neice, Emma Tolly, who was hyptonized into the girl Emilia Moon for 8 years. When Charlie goes back to the bookstore, he brings with him his Great-Uncle Paton Yewbeam, who, over the course of the eight books in the Children of the Red King series, forms a loving and wholesome relationship with Ingledew. In the eighth book, Paton proposes to Julia when he is recovering in the hospital after a nasty arrow wound had been afflicted upon him in the final battle. After their marriage, Paton moves into the bookstore with Julia. Julia Ingledew is listed as one of the members of the "good side", as she is constantly helping the good children (Charlie, Tancred, Lysander, eventually Billy, etc...).
