About the author
Julie's professional background is in education, for which she holds a first class degree with honours. Writing fiction is a creative seed that has been growing and gathering momentum for several years, so the chance to become a published author was an opportunity that she snapped up without hesitation.
She has enjoyed action-packed, thrill-seeking experiences in life, including jet-skiing, motorcycle trail-riding, sportboat racing, fencing, karate, scuba-diving, flying airplanes – and even considered a career as a stuntwoman! These days, when she's not writing, her interests incline towards the arts - in all their forms - from painting and drawing to live music and theatre.
She lives with her wife outside north London, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Living just a stone’s throw from their quirky local pub, it is not unusual after a Sunday walk to find her rehydrating with a pint of craft ale.
A frequent visitor to the UK’s vibrant capital, London is the inspiration and setting for her debut novel, Marmalade Martini. Following the success of this first book, Julie is currently embarking on the sequel, Rock & Rhubarb. This time, the setting is Brighton, UK, where the doors to Alchemy Cocktail Bar will open for one last time...
