With a background in paediatric nursing, Julie spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool. Every day she witnessed courage and resilience from the tiny people she cared for, which inspired her to write stories to entertain them. A self-confessed science fiction nerd, (she even owns a T.A.R.D.I.S) and cupcake enthusiast, Julie is a middle grade author of The Adventures Of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy and Frankie Dupont Mysteries, independently published through Amazon and Createspace.
Julie is represented by Rebecca Angus of Golden Wheat Literary for her unpublished Middle Grade and Picture Book manuscripts. http://www.goldenwheatliterary.net/
