Since the early 80s, I have travelled around the world, mostly with my husband.
Julie started writing poetry and short stories at the age of 9, an excellent way to switch off, I guess. Then it just escalated from there. Her English teacher at her secondary school, Mrs Love, was an inspiration to Julie. In 1985 I moved to Tripoli in Libya, and as the schools did not have any books, I started writing for the children of the local British schools. It's amazing that when there are no books, you crave anything to read. So, we all got together and made something out of nothing.
Julie has continued writing for newspapers, The Times in Kuwait in 89 just before the first Gulf conflict, then Libya, Sweden, the Uk, and many other countries. And the stories could go on and on...
I now live in Portugal, and I have had many books published in the past and have joined publishers Opera Omnia, and they published the first bilingual book back in November 2012. Many of my books are now in several languages.
She lives In Avis in Portugal with her husband and continues to write for children and young adults.
"I feel books are essential and that children should have carefree, happy, well-adjusted lives. Sadly, in this world, it is not always the case. But one can hope".
Julies motto in life is, "Always be the very best you can be"
