Meet the 2016 Authors Julia Johnson


Julia JohnsonWhat are you most looking forward to at the 2016 Festival?

The excitement and the buzz!

When did you realise you wanted to be a writer?

It was a natural progression from actor / storyteller to writer

What book do you find yourself re-reading most often?      

I don’t usually make time to read the same book more than once because there are so many books I want to read, but I have re-visited a few, and The Power of One by Bryce

Courtenay always inspires and empowers me.

If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

A wildlife broadcaster in the footsteps of the great Sir David Attenborough!

And finally, we have a number of aspiring writers attending the Festival. What one piece of advice would you give them?

Keep your eyes and ears open and be observant!
