Julie Thomas


I live in Putaruru, New Zealand. For the last 25 + years I have worked in the media, radio, TV and film and in 2011 I 'semi-retired' and now I write fulltime.. I started writing when I was about 8 and have written professionally and personally for years. I live with my very intelligent and affectionate cat. I love reading, music of all types, cooking, watching sport and being with family.

My first novel, "The Keeper of Secrets" is published as a Trade Paperback under the William Morrow imprint and also as an ebook.
My second novel "Blood, Wine and Chocolate" is published by HarperCollins and is available as a trade paperback and also as an ebook. It is a murder mystery, full of black humour, great wine and scrumptious chocolate.

My third novel, "Rachel's Legacy" (which is a sequel to "The Keeper of Secrets" will be published by HarperCollins as a trade paperback and as an ebook from March 2016.

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.
