Picture of Julia GreenI'm a writer of novels for teenagers/ young adults, and also stories for younger children. I write about relationships, emotions, real-life: important things like birth, death, love. I'm also a lecturer in creative writing at Bath Spa University; I'm the Course Director for the MA in Writing for Young People there. I'm also a mother (I have two sons) and that's very important to me. I live in Bath. I was born and brought up in a village in Surrey called Ashtead. I went to university in Kent (I did a degree in English and American Literature) and then to Oxford University to do an M. Phil in English Studies 1798-1880. I've always loved reading.
