Julie is the author of the hugely entertaining Edwin Spencer trilogy, the third of which will be published in the summer of 2013.
Julie was brought up in the suburbs of East London.
She always enjoyed writing, but came into her own when she started to write Edwin Spencer: Mission Improbable (Catnip Books) about a very ordinary boy who is whisked off to an extraordinary place where he is alarmed at what is expected of him.
In Edward Spencer: Shadow Magic, Edwin finds himself back in Hysteria - there is more to be done if the kingdom is to be saved, and Edwin is the one to do it. Along with his trusty (if very irritating) sidekick, Perpetua.
Julie is a regular visitor to schools. She is based in Leigh on Sea.
