Queen Victoria was a huge fan. Julie became interested in Corelli in the mid 1980s when a professor handed her a copy of A Romance of Two Worlds and said, ‘I think you should read this’. In 1995, whilst visiting England, Julie went to Stratford upon Avon with her musician-therapist friend, John Richardson. Visiting Corelli’s house, Mason Croft, was like stepping back in time. John kept the receptionist busy while Julie attempted to go upstairs and into Corelli’s bedroom but she was stopped halfway up the staircase by an impenetrable wall of such devastating sadness and loneliness she literally ran from the house in tears and swore she’d never go back. She wrote Beyond Laughter on her return to Australia.
