Hi, I'm Julia!

I like reading fiction that is unpredictable and which stays with me long after I've turned the final page. Stories with strong, often uncomfortable messages, about life, society and the human condition fascinate me. I love narrative and descriptive text that make characters and events come to life in my mind. If fiction touches my soul and teaches me something.

Mum to two teenage girls, I live on the edge of the Lake District and work part-time in insurance. In my spare time, I teach French to secondary-school-aged children, I'm an active member of our local village hall committee, I enjoy wine and board games evenings and going on 'low-level' walks (when it's dry!!!)
