Featured Author

Jules Marriner

For many years Jules worked as an illustrator, wishing she could see her own children’s books in print. Then, an off-chance remark made her pluck up the courage to bring to life ‘Vincent and the Vampires’, her first book. Now, she is working on her eleventh!

Jules works from home, in the cosy studio at the end of her wild garden on the Isle of Wight, thinking about how she can make a story from the silly things that occur to her, or putting to paper a hare-brained scene from her imagination.

Jules is one of the co-founders of the IW Story Festival. For more information about Jules visit her website
