Juliet Blaxland is an architect, a published writer, cartoonist and illustrator. She grew up in a remote part of Suffolk and now lives on the cliff edge of the easternmost part of England in a house known as the Easternmost House. Outdoorsy and self-reliant, as an army wife she is often alone, and when she is not out walking with her dog and observing the comings and goings of the natural world, she is to be found at her kitchen table, writing about the remarkable landscape, the sea, wildlife and shifting coastline where she makes her life.
She is the author and illustrator of ten children’s books about a greyhound called Speedy, published by the Retired Greyhound Trust. Her cartoon series, Life in a Listed Building, was published monthly in the Prince of Wales's architecture magazine Perspectives, and won a prize at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Over 100 cartoons were published regularly in architecture magazines in the 1990s and 2000s. The Crowood Press published Nimrod, a Cavalry Black, in 2015, and The House Pony: an ABC of Horsemanship, was published in 2018. She is also a prize-winning photographer.
Her first adult non-fiction title, THE EASTERNMOST HOUSE, is a compelling memoir that mediates on nature, coastal erosion and the changing seasons. It will be published in 2019 by Sandstone Press.
