Juliet Kemp lives in London with her partners, kid, and dog, and a desk with a fantastic view of the river. She writes fiction and non-fiction.

When not writing, child-wrangling, or dog-wrangling, she knits, sews, indulges her colouring-pen habit, reads as much as possible, puts headphones on to pretend no one else is at home (very rarely actually true), and wanders round the house looking for things to get rid of in pursuit of glorious minimalism. As glorious minimalism is not really compatible with a household containing three adults, a child, a dog, and a large number of books, CDs, and marker pens, this is a never-ending endeavour.

She also enjoys cycling, very lazy gardening, and climbing.
