Julie Thomas


I live in Cambridge, New Zealand. For the last 25 + years I have worked in the media, radio, TV and film. I started writing when I was about 8 and have written professionally and personally for years.
I decided it was time to slow down a little and focus on the writing I want to do. So I sold my house in Auckland and moved about two hours south to a lovely rural village and I just LOVE it.
I live with my very intelligent and affectionate cat. I love reading, music of all types, cooking, watching sport and being with family.

My novel, "The Keeper of Secrets" is published as a Trade Paperback under the William Morrow imprint and also as an ebook.

I write from the heart and the subjects of my books fascinate me. I spent 7 years researching 'The Keeper of Secrets' and it was a labour of love. 'In Vino Veritas' is the first in a trilogy of crime novella featuring murder and mayhem in the vineyard! I also enjoy making people laugh and I have a wacky sense of humour.
