Julie is an early years’ teacher in the beautiful country of Switzerland, where she lives with her partner and their bouncy springer spaniel. Originally from England, she has spent half of her life living in Europe, bringing up her three (now grown up) children and immersing herself in new languages and cultures. She loves to travel and can always be found exploring children’s book shops wherever she goes.
Julie has spent many years working in international schools teaching English to her classes. Picture books have been her friends and allies bringing rhyme, rhythm and repetition to the ears of her young students. She now teaches in French, sharing her joy of picture books, storytelling and song with her local community. It is the magic that picture books create for children that inspires her to write.
When Julie isn’t working or writing, she’s running with the dog in the forest, walking or pottering in the garden. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and enjoys participating in the wonderfully supportive Kid Lit blog communities around the world.
Storm Literary Agency looks forward to representing Julie’s debut picture book, Little Tiger.
