Public speaker, educator, and author of the 'Lane' trilogy of books.

Julie C. Round



Julie Christine Round, née Dundas, was born in 1942 in Slough, when it was in Bucks.

After training at Balls Park College she began teaching in London but moved to the North East when she married Ben in 1966. In 1985 she was elected to serve on Kent County Council but had to move on the closure of Chatham Dockyard. She then gained a Diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties and began to tutor pupils with special needs.

On retirement to Sussex she volunteered as an adviser in the local Alzheimer's Society Advice Centre and helped to raise money for Ferring Country Centre, a riding school for the disabled.

The three books that make up the 'Lane' trilogy were inspired by coastal Sussex and the people she met there.

Julie's locally based stories continue with 'Never Run Away' and 'Never Pretend'

She is a speaker for the West Sussex WI and is giving talks to local groups about her writing life.

News from Julie  

• "Lane's End," my first novel is now available as an audiobook through the Calibre audio library.The code number is 10106.

• "Never Run Away" and "Never Pretend" are for sale direct from me or on amazon.

The launch for "A Lesson for the Teacher" on June 3rd was a great success and brings to six the novels I have written since 2007.  While the first five are all family stories set in and around Worthing, the latest book takes the reader back to the West London of the 1960's and to the time of hitchhiking and holiday camps.   All the books are available through Waterstones and on Amazon.More about future plans can be gleaned from my blog - see above.
