Julie Portrait

Hi, I am Julie and my home is in Auckland, New Zealand – a small, magnificent, quiet country situated at the bottom of the world. The most exciting thing that happens on a day-to-day basis is getting a fresh new tea towel out of the drawer.

I am a mama to two beautiful tiny humans – Dylan (a wild pre-schooler) and Eloise (a ferocious toddler). My blog and books often feature them, but are mostly about my ride on the parenting rollercoaster. I also have a wonderful husband, Andrew, but (like Dolly Parton’s other half), he prefers to keep out of the limelight.

When I am not writing or being a responsible adult you may find me in the kitchen trying to bake the best chocolate brownie in the entire world.
