Julie Hegarty & Ritchie Collins Book and Novel

Julie Hegarty & Ritchie Collins - Author


New children’s author Julie Hegarty has teamed up with Beatbullying, the UK’s biggest anti-bullying charity and the first to use solutions for young people devised by young people, to help raise awareness of bullying within Britain’s primary schools.

Hegarty has been taken on as a patron for the charity in order to help them raise awareness of the need to educate and support young children, primary school teachers and parents on the causes of bullying and how best to deal with it when it occurs.

Julie Hegarty grew up on the picturesque coast of South Wales, where her days were spent exploring the rock pools and paddling on the beach. Her childhood love for writing poetry stayed with her through her high powered career as a music business accountant, where she worked for celebrity clients including George Michael and Nancy Griffiths and soon after moving to Edinburgh the character of Michelle the scallop started to take shape.
