Author Bio

julie Hodgson

Since the early 80s I have traveled around the world, mostly with my husband.
I started writing poetry and short stories at the age of 9, nice way to switch off I guess. Then it just escalated from there. My English teacher at my secondary school Mrs Love was an inspiration to me. In 1985 I moved to Tripoli in Libya, and as the schools did not have any books I started writing for the children of the local British schools. Its amazing that when there are no books you crave anything to read. So we all got together and made something out of nothing.
I have continued writing for newspapers, The Times in Kuwait in 89 just before the first Gulf conflict, then,Libya, Sweden, Uk and lots of other countries. And the story could go on and on...
I now live in Sweden I have had many books published in the past and have joined publishers Opera Omnia and they published the first bilingual book back in November 2012.

On the 15th October 2017 I opened my very own bookstore.. This has been a dream of mine...
I feel books are important and that children should have carefree ,happy well adjusted lives. Sadly in this world it is not always the case.But one can hope.

My motto in life is, "Always be the very best you can be"
