Julia Laflin works in the creative development and marketing of multimedia content for museums, art galleries, sports venues and attractions, plus healthcare apps. She’s been in love with books ever since tackling The Little Red Hen at nursery school, so writing them became the way to go. Published non-fiction includes Silver - A Practical Guide to Collecting Silverware (Apple Press) and The New Covent Garden Soup Company’s Soup & Beyond (Macmillan). The House at Roc Noir is an indie-published novella set in Corsica. Julia lives in London and pines for the seaside.
