In Jules Van Mil’s life, creativity is a driving force. Years ago, she studied Education, majoring in Fine Arts and English and then taught primary school children in country Western Australia. Although she loved teaching, she decided to change careers and study fashion design. With a dedicated team, she established a couture bridal and evening wear label. Entering a different path again Jules signed a book publishing deal in 2018. Her first adult novel “A Remarkable Woman” was released last month.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Frenchwoman Avril Montdidier is on a mission: to emigrate to Australia and start her own fashion business, leaving the tragedies of the Second World War behind her. She has family in Melbourne and an apprenticeship at Dior in Paris under her tailored belt, so the future seems bright. But just as she’s ready to begin, an event in her personal life forces her to make the difficult decision. She must flee to a cattle station in southern Queensland and work as a nanny. It is here Avril meets Tim. She must grapple with her twin desires – her love for Tim and the impossibility of their situation, and her yearning to stand on her own two feet and gain independence.
