the Author


            ulie is an international bestselling children's author and illustrator with a series of positive psychology books distributed in 14 countries.

As a nurse, Julie witnessed the power of attitude and how it affects both physical and mental well-being.  Her interest in the mind-body connection led to A for Attitude being self-published in 1998 for distribution in Australia and New Zealand. It was subsequently reprinted by Random House in 1999, became an Australian best-seller, then went on to be published throughout Asia – both in it's original format as well as being translated into several other languages.


                for Attitude resources have attracted positive feedback from people of all ages, all walks of life and from all corners of the world – but the most precious reviews are those from children.

It is Julie's wish that parents (along with grandparents and teachers) will read the books and do the activities with children in your lives. To focus on the positives and learn from the challenges. To be kind to yourselves and others.


To be the best you can be, and to encourage children to do the same.
