Iulia Calota

Agent: Sarah Hornsley

Born in communist Romania, Iulia moved to London shortly-after graduating from the university in Bucharest, where she studied journalism and communication. Waitressing her way through a post-grad in Public Relations at London College of Communication, Iulia started her career in advertising working for major networks such as WPP, Omnicom and Havas.

In 2013, having single for seven years, she decided to take control of her love life and launched a one-year project to manage her way into a committed relationship. After nine months of The Love Project, she met her husband Alistair and together they moved to the South West of France where they run a successful holiday rental business.

THE LOVE PROJECT is her first book and it chronicles the steps she took and the wild, poignant and often humorous results, as well as the lessons learnt. She is currently working on her second contemporary fiction book and has an interest in writing about relationships and human nature.

In 2019 her short memoir THE BINDING OF ISAAC, about her mother’s mental health decline, was shortlisted at the Fish Publishing Short Memoir Competition and later published on The Write Launch.

When she’s not writing, reading or greeting guests, Iulia can be found walking their dog Filou, an adorable wolfhound cross they bought at a car boot sale, doing yoga or swimming in the river.
