years and has tutored English privately for over twenty years.

three grown children, one of whom has Down's syndrome. She lives in
Manchester with her husband, Burmese cat and Nissan Figaro where she
is currently working on her next novel - that's at her office

Writing has always been
a passion, yet it was only in 2018, many years into her teaching
career, that Juliet wrote her first book
‘Caught on the Web’, and even then, writing a book had not

be a page or three for professional development purposes,

'Caught on the Web' was published.
Besides her love of
writing, teaching, cats and Figaros, Juliet enjoys playing violin
and cycling - both of which she performs terribly! It is no wonder
