Julia Macfarlane was born and spent most of her life in the North East of England. She is proud to describe herself as a Smoggie (someone from Teesside, home to Europe’s largest chemical industry) and her stories often reflect her Northern roots.
Julia has an eye for character, an ear for dialogue and a cynical sense of humour running through her work. She has been writing for years and had work appear in various publications. Her career has spanned working as a Tax Officer for Her Majesty’s Inspector of Taxes, being a French/German translator and working for various UK universities in business/university management.

Julia also runs the Bognor Regis Write Club, a group for would-be professional writers; is an active member of Bognor Regis Rambling Club and Chicester Natural History Society. She divides her time between these andenjoying her grandkids; spoiling rotten her beautiful cockapoo; in fact, anything she can find to do that prevents her sitting at her desk and completing her writing projects.
Nevertheless she has managed to write and publish a book of short stories, ‘ News of Leon and Other Tales‘
