My name is Julie Stevens, but I use the name Jumping Jules. I’ve had Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 30 years. I used to be a primary school teacher and was a successful athlete. Nowadays, my MS has progressed so much, I use sticks, wheelchair or mobility scooter to move around. I love writing poetry and my poems tend to reflect the impact MS has on my life, as well as other topics close to my heart. I write poems for both adults and children. I am thrilled they can relate to my poems and are finding them inspiring. My debut collection Quicksand was published in September 2020 by: www.hybriddreich.co.uk. Being disabled hasn’t stopped me from having fun. It just means I have to shine my light in a different way.
