About the Author

In 1988, Julie K. Parrott was recognized in the Women’s Register for her contribution to the Northern Territory community and in 2000 was awarded the Australian Sports Medal.

As mother to three daughters, Parrott spent most of her adult life in the Northern Territory of Australia, playing and coaching tennis and taking an active role in the delivery of public policy.

In 2011, Parrott, along with her partner and beloved pets moved to Queensland’s Sunshine Coast. Quickly changing her writing style from formal government speak to creative, she now spends her time penning anecdotes, travelling and sharing her life with her partner, daughters, six grandchildren and good friends.

Parrott remains committed to helping people put into words the stories they have to tell, believing it is the honest battlers from the suburbs who have some of the most sensitive, interesting and fascinating tales to share.
