Like many children born in the fifties, Juliet’s father served in WW2 as a tank commander. He was involved in the D-Day landings, then, later, seconded as a guard at the Nuremberg war trials. Her grandfather served at Gallipoli in WW1. Although each received awards for bravery, they both undoubtedly suffered for their services.
Juliet’s experience of education was first at an austere convent school; later, aged seven, she was sent to an all-girls English public school. She witnessed many dark doings within these unaccountable institutions.
Her young adult years were spent living and working in London before studying history while raising her children. She now lives with her partner by the sea and is currently writing her next novel.
