About Me

Julie Embleton was born and raised in Ireland in a suburb at the foot of the Dublin mountains. Despite being determined to become a Graphic Designer she never forgot the encouragement given by a teacher that had prompted her to begin writing during her early teens. Julie graduated from college with a degree in Graphic Design and then promptly left Ireland to find her fortune. Years later she came to realise that the fortune she sought was an urban legend, so returned home to Ireland where the weirdness of life had thrown her head first into the hotel industry. While continuing to experience the eye-opening education provided by hotel life she never stopped writing, and after doing so in secret for many, many years finally decided to brave a step into the literary world.

She now lives by the sea with her amazing daughter and ridiculously cute cat and is happily buried in the creation of her next book.
