Julia’s background is firmly in non-fiction, in which field she has worked for many moons, first as in-house editor for various publishers and more recently as a freelance.
Having worked on hundreds of books on topics ranging from motor racing to dog training, cookery to philosophy, Julia continues to prepare copy for non-fiction publications on anything and everything, including international banking, fitted kitchens and military aircraft.
However, even while writing articles on lorry drivers with back ache and how to grow rhubarb, Julia also writes short fiction, and she has had success in competitions and in the women’s magazine market. She is also a competition judge.
Her first fiction collection is called Nine Lives: Monologues and First-person Stories for Reading Aloud.
Julia is also a yoga teacher and her most recent non-fiction book is Stripped-back Yoga, a look at the amusing and thought-provoking things she has seen and heard from her mat at the front of the class.
Julia says, “I have done public readings of my books and spoken to audiences about writing, including running workshops, and I would welcome the opportunity to do more of this.”
