About the author
Hi there, I was born in 1972 and live in Wolverhampton, England with my husband, two children, an energetic Border Collie and two frisky chinchillas. I studied for an English degree at the University of Wolverhampton and wrote my first novel in 2014. I am now the author of six adult novels and currently working on my seventh. I also love writing picture books for young children and am hoping to have them published in the future. I enjoy drawing, cooking, walking and watching films. Animal welfare, taking care of the environment and being kind to people interests me 🙂

Thanks for taking an interest in my work xx
‘The Beautiful Ones’ is such a moving and insightful read with the theme of mental health at its core. I found it easy to root for Caitlyn from the get go. I enjoyed feeling gripped by her family dynamics, her relationships with her friends, and the real insight into her thoughts, fears and feelings.
Julia has written her characters with deep sensitivity. I can tell she cared a lot about Cait and that comes through in every word. I loved Uncle Joe too.
I thoroughly recommend this book but be prepared to go through a whole host of emotions. Loved it!
Thanks for reading!
