"Not all who wander are lost." Juliet Waldron earned a B. A. in English, but has worked at jobs ranging from artist's model to brokerage. Thirty years ago, after the kids left home, she dropped out of 9-5 and began to write, hoping to create a genuine time travel experience for her readers. "Mozart's Wife" won the 1st Independent e-Book Award and still, many years later, garners praise. "My Mozart" is a companion novel, a passionate story of love and madness told by a vulnerable teen fan. "Nightingale" is the romantic story of a prima donna--a bird in a golden cage--in 18th Century Vienna.
"Genesee", an interracial love story set during the American Revolution, won an Epic Award for Best Historical. In "Angel's Flight," a wealthy Dutch heiress is pursued up the Hudson by a fortune-hunting British major, who is determined to have her--by force if necessary. At the height of the Revolutionary War in New York, her only way home leads her into the paths of warring armies, brigands and Indians.
A historical romance set in German country, PA, "Hand-me-Down Bride," is based on the immigration story of her great-great grandmother. "Butterfly Bride" is the sequel, where Sophie's little sister, a material girl, confronts the Great Valley--and her patient sister--with a new set of problems. "Red Magic," is a romantic adventure set in 18th Century Austria. It's the story of a spoiled, proud young woman who has to grow up fast when she's forced into a marriage with a man she despises. "Red Magic" has sequels--"Black Magic," now published, and, "Green Magic," which will follow the supernatural adventures of the von Hagen twins, Goran and Mina, into the Regency period.
"Roan Rose" is a medieval novel "owed" to the last Plantagenent King, Richard III, since the day she was introduced to him in "The Daughter of Time," more than sixty years ago. Here, the familiar antagonists of York and Lancaster are viewed through the sometimes jaundiced eyes of Rose, a peasant-born servant to a great heiress, Lady Anne Neville.
"The Master Passion," about Alexander Hamilton and his wife, Betsy Schuyler, is now published. In some ways it's another story of the woman behind the man, but it's also the story of this immigrant Founding Father, and about the hardships he overcame on his way to the top and the personal demons which would, in the end, bring him down.
Juliet enjoys playing doorwoman for her cats, long hikes, and reading non-fiction history and archeology. Sometimes, she gets to travel and camp. She gardens and cruises the roads of PA behind her husband of fifty years on his "bucket list" 'bike, a Hayabusa. Three granddaughters, mostly grown, make her proud. The oldest is in AmeriCorps, doing good for our country. Another just won a 2014 Watty Award for her stellar fan fic. The youngest dreams, too, but hers, because of autism, are more difficult to know.
Juliet's most recent book is a collaboration with Athabascan native John Wisdomkeeper, "Fly Away Snow Goose. This was inspired by the stories told by Canadian Residential School survivors and by the Tlicho tribe whose ancestral lands are within the Northwest Territory. "Fly Away Snow Goose" is part of the Canadian Historical Bride series published by Books We Love in honor of their nation's 150 anniversary. Each province has its own unique story.
Juliet's reviews appear on Amazon, Good Reads, B&N, and at the Historical Novel Society's US site and online magazine. She has been a presenter at several past Historical Novel Society conventions.
