Juliet Dymoke

I'm posting this more as an excuse to show off some examples of cover art painted by Colin Andrew than as a cover gallery for romance authoress Juliet Dymoke [Juliet Dymoke de Schanschieff, 1919-2001]. I've just posted a piece about Colin Andrew over on the Illustration Art Gallery blog, which covers his career as a comic strip artist and a book cover artist.

About the Author
Juliet Dymoke was born at Enfield in Middlesex and educated at a boarding school in the country. During the war she worked for The Canadian Army Medical Records and at that time married Hugo de Schanschieff who was then serving as an air gunner in he Royal Air Force.

It was while her husband was away in the R.A.F. that Juliet Dymoke turned her attention to writing and also to work on scripts for various films companies. She has published several books for children but counts historical novels with "more fact than fiction" as her particular field. She has travelled all over the British Isles in the course of her research, as she makes a special point of authenticity. Among her main interests are music, television drama and "anything to do with the countryside".
