Julia Hughes moves the waters of
the River Thames and the literary hearts of millions of readers. From her home
in London, her unsurpassed mastery of fiction and her vast and unsurpassed knowledge
of the Queen’s English make her one of the world’s most brilliant writers. Depth
of Character is one of the Holy Grails of Writing and she keeps this legendary
treasure within easy access in the titanic and mystical chambers of her
brilliant mind. She has been my editor and greatest literary friend for more
than a decade.
There has always been magic in
writing, ever since that first mark was cut into a tree and some wandering cave
man “read” it. That enchantment lives on in the world of today. Saturday nights
have become “my” time for writing. Any time after 7 PM finds me racing against
the clock to finish a short-story by midnight. It is 7 AM when Julia opens my
e-mail in London. I am no doubt snoring when Julia reads the jumbled words from
that “Hillbilly Writer” in the U.S.
I always awaken in a Fairy Tale and
find that just like the “Shoemaker and the Elves” the scribbles I laid out the
night before have been transformed into something readable … and occasionally much
much more. No one could ask for a better friend. Her adorable little dog is of
course named “Tinkerbelle”
Thank you Julia!
Sorry if this all seems a bit rambling.
I could have sent it over for edits … but I wanted to “surprise” you.
I will love you forever … and I
will never forget!
Julia Hughes books can be found on Amazon. I don’t know how
many there are. Her literary “gifts” would definitely have to include “proliferation.”
