|Juliet Greenwood is published by
Honno Press. Her books are set in Wales, London, and Cornwall in
Victorian and Edwardian times, and follow the lives of strong,
independently-minded women struggling to find freedom and
self-fulfilment. Her novels have reached #4 and #5 in the UK Amazon
Kindle store, while ‘Eden’s Garden’ was a finalist for ‘The People’s Book Prize’. ‘We That are Left’
was completed with a Literature Wales Writers’ Bursary. She also
writes serials and stories for magazines as ‘Heather Pardoe’.
Juliet’s great grandmother worked as a nail maker in Lye Waste, near Birmingham in the Black Country, hammering nails while rocking the cradle with her foot. Juliet’s grandmother worked her way up to become a cook in a big country house. Their stories have left Juliet with a passion for history, and in particular for the experiences of women, so often overlooked or forgotten.
Juliet lives in a traditional cottage in Snowdonia, and loves gardening and walking. Despite being halfway up a Welsh mountain, she grows delicious black grapes from a cutting from the Hampton Court vine.
