Julia is an ASMR artist, a biologist and a writer, born in Donetsk, Ukraine. When she was 27 Julia decided to run away from colourless winters, environmental pollution, and corruption in search of a better life. Aotearoa, New Zealand warmly welcomed her and became her new home.
In 2022 Julia published her first book, Lada Between Two Worlds (fantasy, middle grade), which focuses on animal rights. The process of writing brought her so much joy that it quickly became part of her daily routine and overwhelmed her leisure. She doesn’t have a lot of time to read or watch films anymore, but those favourites from the past are Spirited Away, Friends, Girl Interrupted, Terminator and everything with Leo DiCaprio. She also loves reading Si-Fi, especially Brothers Strugatsky.
Julia’s other passion is producing Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) videos. She has a YouTube channel, with 40,000 followers, that provides meditations and relaxing experiences. See www.youtube.com/c/NanaFox. Her Instagram account has 1500 followers and is steadily growing, follow her at @nana.foxnz
Julia is a vegetarian and tries to reduce her impact on living beings as much as she can. She lives with her husband and an odd-eye cat Pasha in sunny Whakatū, Aotearoa New Zealand.
