About the Author: Julia Golding

My journey to becoming an author has been a roundabout one, taking in many other careers I grew up on the edge of Epping Forest and was that dreamy kind of child who was always writing stories After reading English at Cambridge, I decided to find out as much as I could about the wider world so joined the Foreign Office and served in Poland My work as a diplomat took me from the high point of town twinning in the Tatra Mountains to the low of inspecting the bottom of a Silesian coal mine.On leaving Poland, I exchanged diplomacy for academia and took a doctorate in the literature of the English Romantic Period at Oxford I then joined Oxfam as a lobbyist on conflict issues, campaigning at the UN and with governments to lessen the impact of conflict on civilians living in war zones a cause about which I still feel very passionate.Married with three children, I now live in Oxford between two rivers, surrounded by gargoyles, beautiful sandstone buildings and ancient trees.My first novel, The Diamond of Drury Lane , won the Waterstone s Children s Book Prize 2006 and the Nestle Children s Book Prize 2006 formerly known as the Smarties Prize I was also chosen by Waterstone s in 2007 as one of their Twenty five authors for the future In the US, Secret of the Sirens won the honor book medal of the Green Earth Book Award My latest series, which starts with Mel Foster and the Demon Butler, about an intrepid Victorian orphan who lives in a household of monsters, won Bronze in the Primary Teacher awards in 2015 The next part, Mel Foster and the Time Machine, has set the time dial to arrive in 2016.

    Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestDNF 62%I ve had this book on my Kindle for literally years and am trying to clear out some of my older titles What better way to do that than an impromptu buddy read with the lovely Tadiana I bought DRAGONFLY because the summary sounded like it was going to be right up my alley It s about a girl named Tashi and a boy named Ramil who are from two countries on

    A gorgeous fantasy novel with lots of humour, romance and action I was especially intrigued by how Tashi and Ramil not only had to learn how to get along, but had to learn to accept the traditions and culture of each other s countries.And I was totally taken in by Tashi s self appointed protector Gordoc, who in his simple mindedness often ended upinsightful than all of his so called knowledgeable fr

    This wonderful tale of adventure, self discovery and love is marketed to the 9 12 year old age group like Anne of Green Gables always a surprise, since when I finally got around to reading it at 14 I really struggled with it , but is highly enjoyable for any age group.Sixteen year old Taoshira, Fourth Crown Princess of the Crescent Islands, was elected at 12, plucked from her goat herd on Kai Island and h

    If I were still teaching, I would have bought a copy instantly for my classroom shelves I know I would have loved this book at age twelve or thirteen, and would have read and reread it passionately.Now I m old, and I still found it perfect read for soggy hot weather after two days of insomnia Tashi, the sixteen year old Fourth Princess of the Blue Crescent, is sent to marry eighteen year old Ramil of Gerfal

    This book could have been a 4 for me if a few of the overly descriptive parts had been left out Yes, I knowit s fantasy, and it s to be expected While Golding has an excellent writing style and nice flow, I found myself skimming a few random parts that were only cosmetic to the story, and was still able to keep up with no problem.That said, this book was a pleasant read and I enjoyed it It s always nice to read about
