JULIE ANDERSON is the oldest of 7 children and has always loved writing and poetry. She recalls her mother being concerned that she read so much, she never came out of her room. As a youth worker for children with special needs, Julie has been around children her whole life. She really enjoys entertaining them with her silly rhymes and made up stories. Julie has 3 daughters which have inspired her to publish books for younger children. She is now in demand as a speaker in many schools nationally. She loves to combine those presentations with music and dance, her two favourite hobbies.
