Join Julie Sykes as she takes you on a journey into the world of her books!



As a child Julie Sykes was always ‘telling tales’. Not the ‘she put toothpaste on my toothbrush’ sort, but tales where she wildly exaggerated everyday happenings. She loved to watch how people reacted to her stories. She also loved reading. Now Julie’s an award winning, cake eating, children’s author of over seventy books. She writes for all ages and has many pseudonyms. 

Come and see how Julie came to writing, where her ideas come from, her writing process (including carrot and cake) and the publisher’s role in creating a book. Julie likes to end with a question and answer session. Warning - If there aren’t any questions then she'll be asking you some!
