More About the Author

My journey to becoming an author has been a roundabout one, taking in many other careers. I grew up on the edge of Epping Forest and was that dreamy kind of child who was always writing stories. After reading English at Cambridge, I decided to find out as much as I could about the wider world so joined the Foreign Office and served in Poland. My work as a diplomat took me from the high point of town twinning in the Tatra Mountains to the low of inspecting the bottom of a Silesian coal mine.

On leaving Poland, I exchanged diplomacy for academia and took a doctorate in the literature of the English Romantic Period at Oxford. I then joined Oxfam as a lobbyist on conflict issues, campaigning at the UN and with governments to lessen the impact of conflict on civilians living in war zones - a cause about which I still feel very passionate.

Married with three children, I now live in Oxford between two rivers, surrounded by gargoyles, beautiful sandstone buildings and ancient trees.

My first novel, 'The Diamond of Drury Lane', won the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2006 and the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 (formerly known as the Smarties Prize). I was also chosen by Waterstone's in 2007 as one of their 'Twenty-five authors for the future'. 'Empty Quarter' was longlisted for the Carnegie Award 2009; 'Wolf Cry' in 2010. In the US, 'Secret of the Sirens' won the honor book medal of the Green Earth Book Award.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Tom Peel on 13 May 2010
Format: Paperback
A good adventure story which is located in an unusual geographical setting. I expect many readers will not have heard of the Sami people before reading this book. Having visited Norway, the book brought back a memorable holiday with wild, rugged landscapes.

Wolf Cry explores the relationship between various ethnic groups and a stranger from afar who happens to be a black man. He becomes a central character in the plot. After reading the book it should help young people for whom it is intended to think about the stereotyping of races and individuals.

The adventure story element moves along at an exciting pace. The book deserves reading to the end with its challenging conclusion.

Format: Paperback
A new children's book (that I was lucky to get a proof of) by the author of the Cat Royal series and the Companion's Quartet. This time Julia Golding takes us back to Viking Times, and the story of Freydis and her brother Toki, who are awaiting their father's return. However, pirate lord Sulke raids their home, and Toki and the villagers are kidnapped, leaving an injured Fraydis behind.
Meanwhile her father is returning, with a slave in tow for Theydis known as 'the blue man,' Enno. This story is about love , family, sacrifice and friendship, and will know doubt be eagerly read by fans of Golding's work. Personally I prefer Cat from the Cat Royal books, but this was still a very enjoyable read.
