Minette lives in Dorset and is an internationally best-selling author of psychological crime-thrillers and historical novels. She has won several literary awards, both in the UK and abroad, and her work has been adapted for television. Minette has kindly supported us through television programmes and the use of her home as a fundraising venue, as well as chairing the judging panel for our children’s story writing competition.

“I’m honoured to be one of Julia's House patrons and try to help them in any way I can, not only to raise awareness of their life-changing work but also the important job of fundraising to keep this amazing care accessible and available for local families. Along with everyone at Julia's House, I deeply appreciate the wonderful generosity that our supporters show to help children and families who are less fortunate than themselves.”
