I’m Julia. I write books and music – at the moment, mostly books, though there will be more music on the way soon.
The Otherlife is a novel for 12+ (grownups, of course, are very welcome to read it also) about friendship and Norse gods and academic pressure and heavy metal, narrated by two boys called Ben and Hobie. It was published by Andersen Press in July 2016.
Head to my music page to read more about my music and my solo albums Robber Bride and I Am Not The Night. You can also read all my lyrics.
Things I love, apart from reading and writing: old recipe books, old languages, old friends, swimming, remote country cottages, and cheese. My favourite authors are Patricia Highsmith, Agatha Christie, Donna Tartt, Paul Auster, Angela Carter, Tim Winton and Stephen King. I would like very much to host a dinner party for all these people.
For school visits, events or press enquiries, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for visiting!
