As one reader remarked, “It’s easier to remember when written in verse.” Julia’s experience of music and dance, combined with her passion for these stories, enables her to present rhyming verse in a fun and accessible way.’

As part of her visit, Julia holds a book-signing session, where children and carers can meet her, collect the books they have ordered and request a dedication.


Schools and children can buy a signed copy of her book for a special price, including a free bookmark.

School visits are from £75 per visit. For a quotation, please contact

Author Visits

Julia loves to share her books with children – in schools and libraries. She offers a reading of one of her picture books, When Moggie Met Froggie or When Moggie and Froggie Met Doggie, both suitable for EYFS.


She discusses care and friendship, talks briefly about writing a story, and leads a drawing activity based on the characters. Sessions are classroom-based and last around 30-40 minutes.

Remarkable Women in Verse tells the stories of Rosa Parks, Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan, and Florence Nightingale. The story is suitable for Upper Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 pupils, enriching their learning and embedding this important core knowledge in their long-term memories.


These long-form poems bring history, poetry and PSHE together to provide cross-curricular opportunities and prompt important discussions around equality, diversity and inclusion and their relevance today. They also complement topics such as the Victorians and ‘People who made a difference’.  Sessions last around 40 minutes and can be classroom or assembly-based.
