About Julie Cohen

Julie Cohen grew up in the mountains of western Maine, USA, and wrote stories from an early age, most of them involving rock stars or magic. After taking an honours degree in English from Brown University, she moved to the United Kingdom, where she spent three years researching fairies in Victorian children's literature. As this had very few practical applications, she became a secondary school English teacher, writing novels in the evenings and in the school holidays. She currrently writes full time and lives in Berkshire with her husband, son and about a million guitars.

Julie writes commercial women's fiction and romance. Getting Away With It, published by Headline Review, is her thirteenth novel. Her next, The Summer of Living Dangerously, will be published in paperback in April 2012.

Reviews

Review by: Morgen Bailey on Dec. 08, 2012 :
Twins - one good, one bad. What's not to like?

We're reflecting on Liza's past from her grown-up self but often get childlike glimpses which I loved. This story has such rich characters, humour and a great plot. I have Julie's 'One Night Stand' and brought it to the top of the pile because of this story.

As writers we're often advised not to start characters' names with the same letter, or if you do make sure they sound different as Julie has done, but I knew someone who had four children, all starting with the same letter (Liam, Lola, erm...) and for me, although personally, this added an extra layer realism, plus my mum / aunt are twins so I could imagine the girls being them - I wonder which would have been which.
