Jules Jones is a materials scientist with a degree in maths and physics, and as such should really be writing hard sf. The output is more along the lines of sf & fantasy, erotica and romance, often all at the same time. Jules has lived in more countries than she wishes to think about, but hails from and currently lives in the UK. She has moved often enough to have learnt that there is in fact such a thing as too many books, and and even too many cross-stitch kits. Her novel Spindrift was an Eppie finalist, and both the novel and its sequel were nominated for the Gaylactic Spectrum Award.
