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.

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
