I love visiting schools and libraries and say yes to as many invitations as I can, while leaving time for writing. Please visit my website for biographical info, descriptions of my books, plans for using them in lessons and more info about my presentations:

1. How a book is made - a lively demonstration of the process 'from brainwave to book'. I bring drafts and proofs.

2. Join in with Julia!  - a lively interactive hands-on session. Meet my cuddly characters, sing the cross pirate song,run away from the anaconda and join in with my stories.

3.  Tell me!  Children question me, preferably about books written by me that they've read. A lively discussion ensues.

I'll devise other presentations to suit specific audiences. 

NB I'm now taking bookings for Summer and Autumn 2016 and Spring 2017. I'm booked for World Book Day 2016 and the weeks around it. Book now for 2017 if you're keen for me to visit your school.
