Julia joined New Leaf in January 2020 as the secretary in the Rugby office, working alongside Amanda and Francine. She is also a freelance journalist and the author of two comedy novels for children, ‘Fleeced!’ and ‘Rampage!’. She lives in Warwickshire with her husband and a barmy cockerpoo. When she isn’t writing, she loves reading thrillers and gardening. She has a love of the natural world that she says accounts for her reluctance to do any housework and watch seagulls flying instead.
