After retiring from a successful career in the civil service, Julie Anderson turned her attention to writing. Along with the Cassie Fortune mysteries Plague, Oracle and Opera, Julie has authored two children’s novels and a collection of short stories. She is the Chair of Trustees for Clapham Writers, and is one of the creators and organisers of Clapham Book Festival. Plague and Oracle have been widely praised, and Julie has created a downloadable walking tour guide of the London sites in Plague. The trilogy's finale Opera was released September 2022 and has been longlisted for the prestigous Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award.
