Noël Cades

April 28, 2014

Noël Cades is a writer originally from the UK who now lives in Australia, where she loves the climate but misses Bramley apples and Bonfire Night. Noël writes on the theme of “forbidden romance,” exploring illicit relationships and risky affairs, as well as age-gap relationships.

Noël’s interests include Latin, which she studied at school. She recently translated Vergil’s Aeneid Book III into Anglo Saxon-style alliterative verse, for no real reason other than to see if it could be done. (It could, but not very well).

With a day job, a night job and a family, squeezing in writing time means a lot of late nights, hence the title of Noël’s blog: “Writings at Midnight.”

Her first novel, Forbidden Lessons, was published in April of 2014.
