About Me

DSCN8886I am an independent author of contemporary romance from around the world: novels, novellas and short stories. I have just published my novella, Over You (Sam’s Story), the first of two sequels to my début novel, From Here to Nashville. You can find it on Amazon here. My second novel, The Vineyard in Alsace was published in 2017 and my debut novel From Here to Nashville was published on February 16th, 2015. I am a proud member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Alliance of Independent Authors, and The Society of Authors.

I blog about my self-publishing journey on this website and welcome your comments on my blog posts. You can also connect with me on Twitter and via my Facebook Author Page.

In January 2016, I went freelance as a writer, supply teacher and WordPress website designer and troubleshooter. I have now expanded to include other web platforms as a result of my new job working as a Communications Officer for a local charity. If you’d like to make use of my business skills, you can find my website here.

I am married and live with my family in Bedfordshire in the UK.

  1. Hi Julie,
    I’ve just had two of my short stories published in an anthology and wondered if you would review the book on your blog?
    It’s called ‘The Milk of Female Kindness’ and includes short fiction, poetry, art, memoir and medical writing on the theme of honest motherhood. Some of the writers have recently given birth, others are grandmothers. Some, like me, are childless; my writing is inspired by memories of my own mother. Some of the pieces will make you smile, others are heartbreaking.

    I’d be very happy to send you an e-book or hard copy, or some sample stories.
    Best wishes and thanks,
    Sandra @ http://www.sandradanby.com/
