Julia ran the first writing course that I attended when I moved to the North East about 12 years ago and has given me such encouragement – from publishing my Diamond Twig book to providing the "blurb" on my new collection, plus so much in between. Generous, funny, so talented and amazingly honest about all she was going through. I’m doing the Race for Life in May, in aid of Cancer Research and now I’ll be doing it in memory of Julia – well, more in celebration of her and the legacy she has left us all. I can just picture her wide smile at the thought of me running…..
Update: I raised £591.54 — thank you to everyone who sponsored me.
