Jules Wilkinson was raised by television in the wilds of suburbia in Melbourne, Australia. She is the same age as Doctor Who.
A fangirl to her core, Jules is the administrator of the Supernatural Wiki which documents everything about the TV series Supernatural and its fandom; a resource so awesome it is used by the fandom, and the show’s writers and crew alike!
Jules shares her view her views and insights on Sueprnatural on the podcast she co-hosts with Amy Hutton – Women of Letters.
With Ryan Curtis, she also hosts the TVChinwag podcast that discusses two different series in-depth each week.
Jules developed her writing skills through an eclectic assemblage of freelance work that started with reporting on HIV/AIDS in the early 1990s, reviewing gay porn days back when it came on VHS tapes and writing literary reviews for queer Australian literary journal Screaming Hyena.
Jules’ more creative writing started in the crusty corners of cyberspace with forays into slash fanfic and internet chat rooms (or in Jules’ case, dungeons). Her stories – both fanfic and original writing – explore the post-modern self, gender identity and desire. To be honest a lot of it seems to be about sex and pop culture.
Her stand-up comedy has confused, and occasionally amused, audiences at festivals around Australia including the Melbourne Writers’ Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival and Mardi Gras.
When she is not writing or watching TV Jules actually has a job. Starting life as a scientist, when world domination eluded her, she moved into the community sector. Jules has worked for the last 20 years in areas including public housing, HIV/AIDS, sexual health and breast cancer.
