Jules grew up in rural South Australia before moving to Adelaide, the state’s capital city, where she began her career as a teacher. She is now living in Hong Kong, the setting of her first book “Fool Me Twice”, which details the dangers and pitfalls she experienced in her search for love online.
Jules started writing her book over eight years ago when she was involved in an internet dating scam. She decided that this was an important story to assist other women not to get caught in the same trap and to help them make safer, smarter decisions when using internet dating platforms. It took a significant amount of time for her have the courage to share her own story, after battling with the shame of her own choices, which landed her in a dangerous situation that she counts herself lucky to have survived.
Jules has always had a passion for people and their stories, so she started her own podcast “Hong Kong Confidential” to provide a platform for the interesting and important stories of the people in Hong Kong. Just as she knows the importance of honouring the stories she shares on her podcast, she feels that her story can make an important contribution to the safety of those navigating the complicated – and sometimes illusionary – internet dating world.
