Julie G. Fox. Author and Founder of Clever Fox Press. Julie's first book 'Goodbye, Emma' told the story of a boy refugee who was forced to leave behind his pet when his family fled the country. This book (which is still Julie's bestseller!) was based on a true story as Julie and her brother were refugees themselves. The proceeds from the sale of 'Goodbye, Emma' as well as all other books Julie has authored and published since have always been donated to charities dedicated to helping children refugees. The first hundred copies of 'Goodbye, Emma' book were shipped to refugee camps in Greece and Iraq and to the charities which are working with children refugees in England, Canada, Germany, Greece and Turkey. After 'Goodbye, Emma' came out Julie felt that she had too many stories locked away in her head, and these stories had to somehow reach more children. She decided to connect with artists, illustrators and writers in the countries troubled by wars and economic problems, to encourage these talented and creative individuals, who lacked platform due to the difficult situations in their homelands, to contribute and to share their stories. Clever Fox Press which was founded by Julie in early 2016 has since written and produced 20 more books with more projects on the way. We now have a terrific team of freelance artists and writers from Ukraine, Russia, Georgia, Spain, Italy, Syria, Greece, South Korea, United States, Latvia and India. Our motto is to write up to children, not down as children are much more perceptive and intelligent than we give them credit for. Thus, we do not break down our books by age group as we believe these are also obsolete. Our books are written for children of all ages including parents and grandparents. We have also noticed the drastic decline of poetry for children. An odd rhyme is there but real poetry has disappeared from bookshelves altogether. So our other goal is to re-introduce poetry in the world of rhyme and non-rhyme which the business of children's books has become. We at Clever Fox Press are also big fans of folklore and fairytales. These hold a world of wisdom passed down from one generation to the next and should never be forgotten but retold to our children as well as to our grandchildren. So once upon a time, there was... #thatladywithfoxears who loves to tell stories and her terrific team of artists and writers from all over the world!
