Nathalie asked Juliet Marillier:

Who, or what, inspired you in becoming an author?

Juliet Marillier Difficult to say, Nathalie. I've been an avid reader since I was very young, and I was a keen writer up to the age of around 16. But I ended up studying music and languages at university and becoming a music teacher. I love storytelling - I read a lot of fairy tales, myths and legends - and the way stories can lead us into other worlds and make us think differently about ourselves and our own world. Later in life I had a chance to do some serious writing, and I ended up having a second career as an author. I often remind myself how lucky I am to be able to earn a living doing something I love so much.
all the best, Juliet M
