Julia Ibbotson Sitting Round My Pool

I have just finished reading, Walking in the Rain by Julia Ibbotson and I loved this book, so you can imagine how excited I am to have the author, sitting round my pool today!

Describe yourself in 3 words:
Loyal, empathetic, patient.

Favourite food:
Succulent roast chicken with crispy roast potatoes, blackberry apple crumble.

Favourite colour:
Pink because it’s soft, calming and warming for the complexion.

Favourite place:
Madeira at our apartment: hot, sunny, can virtually live outside!

How many books have you published?
The Old Rectory: escape to a Country Kitchen
Walking in the Rain
S.C.A.R.S (children’s)

Blurb for Drumbeats:

Sometimes you need to escape to find yourself. It’s 1965 and the air is hot with the sound of the Beatles, love and freedom. 18 year old Jess flees her stifling English background for Ghana, West Africa.  But it’s a time of political turbulence and what she finds is danger, civil war, tragedy and romance. Why do the drumbeats haunt her dreams? And can she ever really escape?
