Julia Jarman


Welcome to Julia’s new website!

Please have a look round. You will find details of her books for children of all ages and reading abilities. 

You will also find resources for teachers and librarians based on her work, activities for children such as word-searches and pictures to colour, and information about her visits to schools and libraries.

Do get in touch using the form at the bottom of the page if you would like to know more. 

A popular children’s author, Julia has been writing for over 30 years.

She has written more than 100 books. Long ones, short ones, modern and historical, funny, sad, serious and silly.

Formerly a teacher, she loves visiting schools and libraries.

She lives in a small village in Bedfordshire, England but is always happy to travel to talk about her work.

On the rare days not filled by reading or writing, she enjoys gardening, cooking, walking, swimming, discussing books with friends and going to the theatre.

Upcoming Events

Sorry! Like everyone else I’m staying at home to stop the spread of Coronavirus.

If you’re looking for something to while away a few minutes, here’s a video of me reading one of my favourite stories, Jessame’s Lucky Day.

I was planning to tell you about the forthcoming Big Red Bath tour, due to launch at Half Moon Theatre on May 22nd but that’s on hold.

A decision will be made later in the year about starting the tour in the Spring. Let’s be optimistic. The show will come to a stage near you later if not sooner.

Splish! Splash! Splosh!

The stage show by FullHouse Theatre was a huge success when it toured in 2015.

Please visit Fullhouse Theatre Group for revised details of venues and to buy tickets

Please go to the Latest News page for more information about recent events.


WORLD BOOK DAY 2021.  FYI that’s Thursday March 4th.

Some schools are looking ahead optimistically. 

Hurray!  I have been booked by HEXTON JMI SCHOOL, HERTFORDSHIRE for the day, and by BLUNDELL’S PREP TIVERTON for Monday 1st March,  to kick start their WORLD BOOK WEEK!

I’m so looking forward to meeting pupils, staff and maybe parents as well, at these enterprising schools.
