Julia Fellner


I wrote my debut novel, Revealed, at the age of sixteen. After this first experience with the publishing industry I wanted to become more entrepreneurial than just writing.

Therefore, I self-published my second novel, To be a Hero and a short story collection, Adventure Stories of Pirates, Robots and Coconuts, also very much enjoying the management side of the process.

I graduated from Vienna University with a Bachelor in English linguistics, literature and cultural studies and am completing a Master degree in Management in the Creative Economy at Kingston University London.

Currently, I live in London, where I am working on exciting new projects.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
My first novel Revealed was published traditionally by a small publishing house. While it was a very useful first step into the publishing world, I soon wanted to become much more active in the overall process of producing and marketing a book rather than just writing it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not spending my time with friends and family, I bake, jog or just take long walks in nature. Unfortunately, between studying and work there is never enough time to read as much as I would like to.
