Juliet Marillier was born and brought up in Dunedin, New Zealand, and now lives in Western Australia. Her historical fantasy novels for adults and young adults have been translated into many languages and have won a number of awards including the Aurealis, the American Library Association’s Alex Award, the Sir Julius Vogel Award and the Prix Imaginales.
Her lifelong love of folklore, fairy tales and mythology is a major influence on her writing. Juliet has two new novels out this year: Shadowfell, first book in a new young adult / adult crossover series, was published in July, and Flame of Sevenwaters, an adult historical fantasy, comes out in late November.
Juliet looks forward to seeing all her fans at the Sydney and Perth expos and will be appearing both days of the event between 11am and 5pm.
