With a background in paediatric nursing, Julie Anne Grasso spent many years literally wrapping children in cotton wool. Every day she witnessed courage and resilience from the tiny people she cared for, which inspired her to write stories to entertain them.

A self-confessed science fiction nerd, (she even owns a TARDIS) and cupcake enthusiast, Julie is a middle grade author (ages 8-12) of The Adventures Of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy and Frankie Dupont Mysteries.

She lives in Melbourne with her husband Danny and their little munchkins Giselle and Henry, and is also the proud owner of a Little Free Library to encourage literacy in all walks of life.

Julie holds a current “Working With Children Check” issued by The State Government of Victoria, Australia.

She is also a member of the Australian Society of Children’s Book Authors and Illustrators.
