About Me




I’m Julie, nice to meet you.

I’m an Author, Artist and a Fashion Upcycler.

My writing career started more than 18 years ago, and my work appears in a wide variety of publications in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria, as well as the International Poetry Anthology and an anthology with the Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland.

I published my first book in October 2015; ‘Pushing Shadows’ is collection of poetry, about life, loss and love. I’m working on another book about my experiences as a FIFO (fly in fly out) wife.

I wrote a regular column What’s on Your Bedside Table for the Victorian publication Positive Words.

I appeared at the Brisbane Writers Festival 2015.

This year, I started a writers group with my friend Beth,  Wild Women Writers, which we run on the Sunshine Coast.

I’m also an Artist, working in Pastel; original artwork appears on the front cover of my book, in a local gallery and private homes.

I have a passion for upcycling clothes-by adding a creative flair to ordinary pieces, I love making them unique and unusual.

      Your welcome! and Thank you thank you!! I was just thinking that we really need to put ‘you’ into your writing, in fact its difficult NOT to put it in isnt it?
      I’ll be reading ‘you’ with interest as well!!
