My name is Julie and I am a published writer, qualified proof reader and editor. You are joining me at the beginning of my freelancing journey. Whereas previously, I would write for competitions or for short story compilations, I have decided to use my talents and start freelancing. I work at a prestigious private school and I proofreading the school reports which go to parents on a regular basis. These need to be top quality and contain no errors – they pay good fees to send their children to the school and deserve value.

The screen shown is my ‘Tree of Writing Life’. It was the start of my life as a writer. Ok my previous home space was limited and I hid one half of my spare room behind this screen, allowing me the peace and calm I desired in order to create.

20180825_092628But that was back then! Much has changed and we have bought a beautiful little three-bedroomed detached corner house in a town called Attleborough. We have only recently moved in after a tumultuous year so I have been off-grid and written very little.

I have written little since before lockdown really. For some reason when I was given lots of time and not much to fill it with, I stopped writing. Lockdown seemed to change something within me and I lost the interest in writing which was obviously a bad move. But here I am and I am ready to start again. My pen is re-inked and my beautiful new home gives me many sunny corners in which to curl up and think and put pen to paper. So let’s go!

I need to mention ‘we’ which, at home, is just me and my fabulous husband. His name is Clive. Between us, but not together, we have five children, grown up children; four sons and a daughter. My twin sons and Clive’s eldest went to school together while my daughter was in the year above and his youngest son was a couple of years below. We also have a beautiful little granddaughter and two adorable twin grandsons.

Clive and I love to dance. Dancing is one of our greatest pleasures. We started learning not long after we moved in together and we have never looked back.  Clive loves to fly kites and, while I am happy to watch and occasionally fetch and carry those that don’t launch, I like to spend my time writing or reading, be it proofreading or a good book. I will try to balance wit and wisdom for your reading pleasure.

Thank you for visiting and I look forward to hearing from you.
