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.
