Subject to diary and other commitments, I’m always happy to discuss doing interviews, podcasts and so on.

If you have a book to propose for my review column in Albedo One, send me the details and we’ll take it from there.

If you have a query about foreign translation or other rights in my work, contact me in the first instance and I can put you in touch with the relevant publisher.


  1. Hello and a big thank you for your wonderful books. I am a 62 year old wifie /tapestry weaver living on Great Bernera,on the edge of the isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides. I just want to thank you for consistantly providing a totally believable world, with realistic characters and unexpectable plots for us to dive into.
    Having only found you in the last few years, I have and love every book and some of my friends are now hooked too!
    Good luck and many thanks, Sallie.
    PS Just getting near the end of “Dangerous Waters”

    1. Hi Sallie, thanks for taking the time to drop me a line – and I’m so pleased you’re enjoying the books. That’s why I write them after all 🙂

      You live in the Outer Hebrides? Somewhere I’ve long wanted to visit – the only complication being my ability to get seasick on a wet pavement. There’s not much in my books that’s autobiographical but Livak’s dislike of boats definitely is! One day, maybe…

      Incidentally, your tapestries are stunning! I’m a proficient knitter/embroiderer as long as I have a pattern but to be able to create art like yours? I’m awestruck.

      all best wishes, Juliet

  2. Dear Juliet,
    I’m mortified!
    Here we are 2 years down the line and i never imagined that you would be kind enough to drop me a line. So i never looked back, just kept reading all your books up.
    I love them!
    the only trouble being; that it takes a lot less time to read your books than it must do to write them. so I’ve run out.
    I want to thank you so much for your wonderful imaginations and the gripping stories

  3. Hi Juliet,

    I’m currently really enjoying the Aldabreshin books, however, I can’t seem to be able to buy an electric version of Eastern Tide on GooglePlay or Amazon?

    Thank you kindly

  4. Hello Juliet,

    I am gratefull for your books, and I would like to ask you, If there is somewhere the rules or precisely the game “White Raven”, which is many times mentioned in your books. It seems to be quite similar to game “Marshal and Spy” but I couldn’t find the rules for your game.
    Any advice? 🙂

    1. thanks for getting in touch, and I’m delighted that you enjoy the books. You’re not the first to ask about the White Raven game, and I’m always sorry to disappoint readers when I explain that there are no rules or other details available. I see it as a strategy game like ‘Fox and Geese’ or ‘The Viking Game’ with unequal sides and different victory conditions for each player, but that’s as far as I’ve got in inventing it. Game design is a skilled business and I am no such expert.
