Julie Author Photo September 2022

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.

She is a middle grade author (ages 8-12) of The Adventures Of Caramel Cardamom Trilogy and Frankie Dupont Mysteries.  Her Debut Picture book, “Hooray, Hooray, It’s Library Day,” will be released by Scholastic Australia in July 2024.

Julie lives in Melbourne and works in public libraries, delivering story times to hundreds of children each week and developing the junior fiction collection to reflect the reading needs of her community. 

She is also one half of the indefatigable Middle Grade Mavens, a podcast by middle-grade authors, about middle-grade books.

Julie has a knack for pitching and is a wiz at Instagram Reels, so in October 2022, she launched her Author Services. Head to her Author Services page for her rates, then drop her a line via the Contact Me page.
