Jessie Jones has just discovered she’s a witch. Too bad there isn’t a hex to make slimy Callum Henderson and his friends disappear … yet. A feisty, funny YA series about discovering your place and your power.

New girl, new school, new life on stupid island – thanks Mum. All Jessie Jones wants is to keep her head down, avoid school douchebag Callum Henderson, and coast – middle-of-the-road-like. But when strange powers start to manifest during crippling period pains, flying under the radar seems highly unlikely.

Can Jessie embrace her new-found witchiness, control her erratic powers and work out a way to bring down Callum and his cult of toxic masculinity?

Hexed is pure fierce magical genius.

I can't wait for everyone to read this book.

Where the World Turns Wild

Powerful & empowering, fun & FURIOUS. This is a riveting & timely tale of sexism & sexual harassment in secondary schools, with added witchery. I loved the female friendships, & the island setting which runs through the story like a cool breeze.

Blood Moon

Witty and engaging, and taking on period taboo. YA readers will love it

A word after a word after a word is power.



After a brief (but fun) stint working in television and as a primary school teacher, Julia Tuffs decided to take her writing dreams more seriously. She lives in South-West London with her family and ragdoll cats (Billy and Nora) and spends her time writing, reading, dreaming of holidays and watching too much reality TV. She aims to write the kinds of books that shaped and inspired her as a teenager.

HEXED is her debut novel.
