Julia Blackburn

Julia Blackburn

Born in London in 1948, Julia Blackburn is the daughter of the poet Thomas Blackburn and the painter Rosalie de Meric. She describes her bohemian childhood in her memoir, The 3 of Us.

She has lived in Spain and Holland and during the last 15 years, she and her second husband, the dutch sculptor Herman Makkink, divided their time between Suffolk and a mountainous valley in northern Italy.

She has three children and two grandchildren.

Julia's books cover a wide range of subjects and are hard to categorize, but they all include aspects of her own life, descriptions of the natural world and a concern with the predicaments that people find themselves in.

As well as books, she has written four plays and seventeen short stories for BBC Radio 3 and 4.
