My Bio An avid fan of both the Met. Opera’s live broadcasts and the Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, this sliding scale of entertainment is evident in Julie's own often poignant, often playful observations on life’s experiences which she refers to as pondering the fuzzy navel of the universe.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
"Say Something English..." Romp through a collection of humour essays adapted from “letters home to mum and dad” in the style of Bill Bryson (Notes from a Small Island) and Laurie Notaro (The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club) as I navigate my way over, under… and sometimes right through the obstacles of living life in a new country, where cheddar cheese is an acceptable accompaniment to apple pie and small cakes are served for breakfast… with butter!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
"Hope, Loss and Possibilities..." There are many kinds of losses. Loss of a loved one, loss of dreams, a job, one’s health. People, seldom knowing what to say, can resort to The Blurt: Suck it up! … Are you looking forward to a good wake? … Hope and possibilities do come hand in hand with loss. Although they can at times seem annoyingly illusive.

My hope is these images and words might gently weave their way into the tapestry of your courageous journey.

I believe in you.
