Julia JohnsonWhat are you most looking forward to at the 2016 Festival?

The excitement and the buzz!

When did you realise you wanted to be a writer?

It was a natural progression from actor / storyteller to writer

What book do you find yourself re-reading most often?      

I don’t usually make time to read the same book more than once because there are so many books I want to read, but I have re-visited a few, and The Power of One by Bryce

Courtenay always inspires and empowers me.

If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

A wildlife broadcaster in the footsteps of the great Sir David Attenborough!

And finally, we have a number of aspiring writers attending the Festival. What one piece of advice would you give them?

Keep your eyes and ears open and be observant!
