Alex Martin Sitting Round My Pool


Sitting round my pool today is the lovely Alex Martin who writes poignant World War One dramas.



Describe yourself in 3 words
short, short-sighted, short-tempered.


Favourite food
Hmm, tricky, fond of food - would have to be vegetables - for their infinite variety


Favourite colour
Tend to go for warm colours - poppy red, flame orange, saffron, deep yellows


Favourite place to visit
Southern French vineyards - for the sunshine, wine, food and laid-back lifestyle.

Here's the blurb from Daffodils


"Katy dreams of a better life than just being a domestic servant at Cheadle Manor. Her one attempt to escape is thwarted when her flirtation with the manor’s heir results in a scandal that shocks the local community. 

Jem Beagle has always loved Katy. His offer of marriage rescues her but personal tragedy divides them. Jem leaves his beloved Wiltshire to become a reluctant soldier on the battlefields of World War One. Katy is left behind, restless and alone. 

Reverend Lionel White, just returned from India, brings a dash of colour to the small village, and offers Katy a window on the wider world. 

Katy decides she has to play her part in the global struggle and joins the war effort as a WAAC girl. She finally breaks free from the stifling Edwardian hierarchies that bind her but the brutality of global war brings home the price she has paid for her search."
