When not fighting plots and chasing bunnies, Julia is mostly to be
found in theatres, generally messing about with words and tripping
over props (of which she is an avid collector). Currently developing
an AI farce with 3 other lunatics. Building a clockpunk world. Gothic
also appeals. You have been warned.
Can be found @JuliaFWarren (where you can expect occasional
bouts of nonsense; pretty frequently actually). Domiciled at
www.greycellspress.co.uk. And at artscribe.wixsite.com/juliawarren. Mysteries a speciality... usually also historical; yep, I do enjoy living in past worlds as well as future ones… hey,so let’s build worlds! :)
Eccentric American, expert in accent work. She excels both at comedy and drama and loves theatre more than life. Among other skills, she can speak fluent Norwegian, cry on cue, and solve a Rubiks cube in about 90 seconds ;-)
