About: Juliet Greenwood
- Juliet is the author of 'We That are Left', set in Cornwall, Anglesey and France in the First World War and published by Honno Press on 20th February 2014. 'We That are Left' is The Welsh Books Council's Book of the Month for March, Waterstones Wales Book of the Month for March, and the inaugural Book of the Month for the National Museums of Wales. Juliet's previous novel for Honno, 'Eden's Garden' was Welsh Book of the Month in 2012, a Kindle bestseller in 2012 and 2013 and is now a finalist in The People's Book Prize 2013/14 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. Juliet has been told that her great-grandmother was the cook at a big country house at the beginning of the last century. She has definitely inherited the baking gene – her chocolate-and-orange cake is legendary! 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, from running her own craft stall at Covent Garden Market to running puppet and storytelling workshops in North Wales. A severe illness over 15 years ago inspired her to pursue her life-long passion and finally fulfill 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’
