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

Splish! Splash! Splosh!

BIG RED BATH is back on stage!
I’m thrilled to say that BIG RED BATH, the show based on my picture-book, will be back on the road very soon! Rehearsals are already underway for the relaunch at Half Moon Theatre, London E1 on 23rd October. This begins a country-wide tour, going to 12 different theatres, 6 during half-term week, and one of them may be near you. To find out and BOOK TICKETS click on the link below.

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

I’ll be there signing books after morning and afternoon performances at every venue except one. (Sorry Bedford but there’s a family event I’m not allowed to miss.) Please bring loved copies – if not too chewed – or buy new ones on the day. BIG RED BATH and other titles will be on sale.

I’m so looking forward to meeting you and of course seeing this exciting show!
