Juliet took a mixed degree in biological natural sciences and history of art – so she had to be a writer! An award-winning journalist, broadcaster and author, she has worked for BBC television and radio, written for all the ‘broadsheet’ national newspapers (as well as various magazines and websites), and authored two non-fiction books for adults. She has also travelled in over 50 countries (and intends to make it more!).
Juliet recently started writing for children and is loving it. Her first children’s book, Amazing Minotaur (a retelling of the legend with a real maze and illustrations inspired by Minoan art) was published by Frances Lincoln in June 2014 and selected for the Summer Reading Challenge. Her next, Travels with My Granny (original fiction) is in the works with Otter-Barry Books. She is currently writing about feet, nursery rhymes and space travel.
