Julia Crouch


UK flag

Julia Crouch grew up in Cambridge and studied Drama at Bristol University. She spent ten years working as a theatre director and playwright, then, after a spell of teaching, she somehow became a successful graphic and website designer, a career she followed for another decade while raising her three children. An MA in sequential illustration reawoke her love of narrative and a couple of Open University creative writing courses brought it to the fore.

She works in a shed at the bottom of the Brighton house she shares with her husband, the actor and playwright Tim Crouch, their three children, two cats called Keith and Sandra, and about twelve guitars.

The Hike (2022)
Susi Holliday
"Such unpleasant people, yet Holliday still somehow has us caring what happens to them. Cat is one of the biggest literary pieces of work since Amy in Gone Girl."

The Beaten Track (2022)
Louise Mangos
"An unputdownable, spine-chilling backpacking voyage through the depths of a dark and dangerous obsession. Mary Shelley's Frankenstein meets Cheryl Strayed's Wild."
thumb
The Hunting Party (2018)
Lucy Foley
"[A] brilliant, edgy book about friendship and obsession. Atmospheric, spooky, dripping with threat, it’s a book to dig your claws into and not let go."
