About Julie Hodgson
Julie Hodgson lives in Portugal with her husband John and has travelled extensively all over the world writing for children. Working on the children’s page of the Kuwaiti times for about a year. Just before the first Gulf conflict in 1989. She has travelled to North Africa and lived in Tripoli where she engaged in many activities with school children. Tours around the world with her books and encourages people to read. An avid reader herself and a coffee lover. Julie’s motto in life is “always be the very best you can be” And she certainly lives up to that fact.
She now settles for a quieter life and has more time to write stories, is in popular demand for storytelling and has visited many schools in Portugal. A few years ago, on Fridays, the children are entertained by Julie Julie’s stories on the local radio show, “Bom Dia “(good morning, Portugal) on RTL 96fm in Portugal which is a great success with an avid following. When last interviewed on the radio Julie stressed how important it was for children to be able to read. She usually donates the proceeds from the sales of her books to charities. In fact, the sales of the books in Portugal are being donated to a handicapped society in Ponte de Sor.
As an avid charity giver, Julie sends most of her book royalties to charities.
