I consider myself an honorary Yorkshire woman living in the Chilterns, who still misses proper hills.
I have always wanted to be a writer and blame this on my Grandmother taking me at a young age to the Brontës’ parsonage at Haworth.
After reading English at the University of East Anglia, working life began in the glamorous, but deeply shallow world of PR, where I honed my fiction writing skills on press releases and other copy-writing projects.
Creative writing has always been a passion lurking within and after completing a course, I set up the Tring Writers' Circle. I felt obliged to set a good example, which also proved to be a genuine displacement activity for other tasks which I didn’t enjoy so much, such as cooking and cleaning. Fortunately my husband is good at the former and an occasional participant in the latter.
With my eldest having now taken flight to university I’m hoping to have even more time to devote to writing and to building on my two published novels thus far.
Jules' next book, Covent Garden in the Snow, will be published in paperback in November 2017.
