Juliet is the author of 'We That are Left' and 'Eden's Garden' both published by Honno Press.
Juliet lives in a traditional Welsh quarryman's cottage between Anglesey and the mountains of Snowdonia. She has a large garden that would have been used by original inhabitants to grow vegetables and fruit to supplement their wages. Juliet tries to follow in their footsteps with the aid of a polytunnel and plenty of experimenting with the results!
Between the ages of 8 and 16 Juliet attended Elmfield Rudolf Steiner School, where many of her teachers were French and German refugees. The memories of their experiences have stayed with her, and formed part of the inspiration for 'We That are Left'.
As a child, Juliet always had her nose in a book. She wrote her first novel (an epic inspired by Rosemary Sutcliff and set in Saxon times) at the age of ten. After studying English at Lancaster University and King's College, London, Juliet worked in a variety of jobs to support her writing, before finally fulfilling her ambition to become a published author.
As well as novels under her own name, Juliet writes serials and short stories for magazines as 'Heather Pardoe'.
'We That are Left' was completed with the aid of a Literature Wales Bursary and was book of the Month for March 2014 for Waterstones Wales, The Books Council of Wales, and the National Museums of Wales.
'Eden's Garden' was chosen by the Welsh Books Council as Welsh Book of the Month May 2013, and as a finalist for The People's Book Prize 2013/14.
Both books reached the top #5 in the Kindle Store in summer 2014.
