Julia is a big "story" worshiper. She sees life and its twists and turns as a story. Things begin, evolve and end, and Julia loves to extract these episodes and make s written telling out of it. Julia's story began back in the USSR, city of Tallinn in 1978. At the age of 13 Julia, as most of her countrymen, ended up in a young sovereign country, Republic of Estonia. But this was just the start of her adventures in the world. After graduating from Gymnasium, Julia won a grand from a Danish Democracy Fund and moved to Denmark for a study. The country and people became very inspirational to Julia, especially the history of Hans Christian Andersen, who made an enormous impact on literature in his time. And Julia was no stranger to his books as a child, too. Julia decided to dedicate herself to writing. After graduation from Journalism major, Julia never departed from writing, even though she worked in various industries and various European countries. The last 10 years Julia is living in the Netherlands with her husband and 3 children. She is freelancing in writing and trying out different genres. 5 years ago she got a chance to write children stories at TRP, and later on was also working as a Russian-language editor for them. Julia believes in the power of language skills, both verbal and written, after all the language is the most efficient tool of communication between all people, and exchanging idea and stories, being understood and being able to understand comes solely to one's ability to use their language. And getting a habit of reading with kids she finds just essential.
