10 Jul Author School for Children: Juliette Forrest: Vile Villains
You can’t beat a baddie everyone loves to hate. Join children’s author Juliette Forrest who will help you create some memorable baddies. Drawing inspiration from some infamous wicked characters, we’ll create our very own despicable villains from scratch. Watch out, they’re behind you!
After finishing school, Juliette left Scotland for the bright lights of London where she trained as an art director and worked in the creative departments of advertising agencies, winning awards for her TV, radio, press and poster campaigns. Wanting a life of adventure, she packed her bags and travelled around the world, where she stayed with the Karen people in Thailand, dived the Great Barrier Reef, explored Malaysian jungles, visited the Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island in Hong Kong and hared across America by Greyhound Bus. Winning a New Writers Award from the Scottish Book Trust gave Juliette the support she needed to complete her first novel Twister, which was snapped up by Scholastic and published in February 2018. Juliette lives in Glasgow and loves exploring the great outdoors with her rescue dog – even though she has a sneaking suspicion he is the one taking her for a walk.
