About Me

Julia Fursdon


Born in 1957, my family had moved four times before I was four.  When I had my own children, we moved ten times while my children were small. So I have always felt like the outsider, never quite sure what to expect or what to do.  Like a fast food junkie invited to a royal banquet, it’s like I’m always checking what cutlery to use and regretting my choice of clothing.

As a child, the aim of my day was to spend time on my own telling myself stories.  Not much has changed really.

I wrote the “Prairie Patchwork” when I was doing a job that I hated.  (Thankfully I worked part time which gave me one afternoon off a week.)  For three hours a week, I visited another time and place and met some other people.  I couldn’t tell them what to do but I tried to solve their problems.  Everyone needs a place to escape and this was mine.

Currently I am writing short stories on completely disconnected themes except that most of them have a positive if not a happy ending.
