    Saturday Cocktails w/ Julia Ibbotson

    in Books

    Julia Ibbotson lives in a renovated Victorian rectory in the English countryside with her husband (four children, now grown up, having fled the nest), along with lots of apple trees, a kitchen garden and far too many moles. She is an author and academic, and loves choral singing, walking, swimming, gardening and cooking (not necessarily at the same time). She started writing as soon as she could hold a pencil in her tiny fist and has not stopped since, much to the bemusement of her long-suffering husband who brings her endless cups of coffee and sometimes even makes the dinner when she is distracted and frowning at her laptop.


     


    She wrote her first novel when she was 10 years old, sadly never published and long since consigned to the manuscript graveyard. She loves writing novels with a strong sense of time and place and that is the basis of her latest, Drumbeats, the first of a trilogy which follows Jess through the trials and tribulations of her life. It starts with Jess on her gap year in Ghana in the 1960s.


     


    Recently she found an old manuscript gathering dust in her drawer, one she had originally scribbled when she was still at school, many years ago. It was a children’s story about a boy who slips through a tear in the fabric of the universe to find himself in a fantasy medieval world. She is currently blowing off the dust and redrafting it for her publishers to let it loose on the world in the autumn. It’s called S.C.A.R.S.


     


    She loves to hear from readers (it’s a pleasant distraction from her steaming keyboard), so do get in touch via the links below.

    Saturday Cocktails w/ Fiction Addiction Book Tours

    in Books

    Julia Ibbotson is the award-winning author of The Old Rectory: Escape to a Country Kitchen, first published to acclaim in the USA and now re-launched with a brand-new cover by her new English publisher in the UK. Julia has been writing creatively all her life (unpublished!) but her day jobs to pay the mortgage have been as a school teacher and latterly a university academic, gaining her PhD at the age of 57. She delights in being a wife and mother to four, with four little grandchildren. She loves reading, gardening, growing food, cooking for family and friends and country life. Having published many academic texts and papers, she came late to actually publishing her creative writing, at the age of 60 plus, when she was persuaded to write the story of the renovation of her Victorian rectory in The Old Rectory. She has combined memoir, history, research, story and recipes in this first published book, which has won a number of international book festivals in the biography category, gained 5 star reviews on Amazon, and has been widely featured (along with her house) in the media. She has begun to delve into the world of blogging, facebook and now has her own website at www.juliaibbotson.com  at which she also posts blogs regularly, about writing, life and her passions. Her new project is a trilogy of novels following the life story of a new character, Jess, through from fleeing to West Africa as a volunteer teacher/nurse in the 1960s to the millennium. The first of the series, Drumbeats, is due to be published later this year. You can find out more on her website and on her author page on Amazon.

    Premier Episode

    in Politics

    The first episode of Drumbeats will focus on the goals for the show and the type of guests who will be interviewed weekly.  I will also discuss my recently released novel, From The Waist Up a mystery set in Washington, DC.  Because infidelity is a theme in the book, I'll also take calls to discuss the subject.
    About the book
     
         Infidelity is a gamble that when exposed, carries devastating  repercussions.  Add murder and the stakes go through the roof.  Felix Anderson unwittingly learns this lesson and the costs are high.  A one-night indiscretion, the subsequent slaying of his beautiful, young wife, and his own evasive behavior places him under a cloud of suspicion despite an ironclad alibi.
         Relentlessly shadowed by Detectives Monroe Waters and Kevin Conner, Feilx’s continual missteps cast doubt on his innocence.  Complicating his predicament is a hefty insurance settlement, a dubious financial transaction and unpredictable ex-lover.  Undeterred, Felix focuses on finding his wife's killer.  As he attempts to put the pieces together Felix is propelled through a series of events that leave him no margin for error.   
          Inspired by the works of Walter Mosley, Elmore Leonard and George Pelecaonos, From the Waist Up represents Lawson's first foray into the world of fiction.  Set in 1996, Lawson utilizes his interest in history, politics and biographies to present readers with a provocative insight into the culture of African-American professionals in Washington, DC where he currently resides.

    Twisted South Radio welcomes Brett Detar & Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre

    in Entertainment

    Brett Detar is a songwriter, singer, & musician following in the Americana / roots music tradition living in Los Angeles, California. I'M GIVING AWAY MY BRAND NEW RECORD FOR FREE AT BRETTDETAR.COM - please go and sign up to download it for free. He’d be honored if you did.
    Bird In The Tangle is an authentic roots record that takes its listeners on a sweeping journey across coasts and five cities into fleeting highs and empty houses, bleak street lights and closed eyes, the darkest depths of wanderlust and loneliness. Paying homage to the legacy of story-telling found within America’s own art form of country music-- in all its weepy, pedal-steel steeped, Yes-Hank-woulda-done-it-this-way glory-- Brett Detar lays bare his soul in this stunning solo debut. The album documents one of the loneliest and most doubtful times in singer/songwriter Brett Detar's life. After touring the world full-time, releasing five studio albums on both indie and major labels in a successful indie rock band with his childhood friends for ten years, he found himself with splintered musical attachments, changed life goals, and an uncertain musical future.
    Blazing a trail out of Memphis, Tennessee, Joecephus and the George Jonestown Massacre are on a roll. Having been referred to as “a cross between Motorhead and Merle Haggard” and having served as opening acts for such diverse artists as Shooter Jennings, David Allan Coe, Jesco White The Dancing Outlaw, Jim Dickinson, Unknown Hinson, Green Jello, Scott Biram, The Reverend Horton Heat,H. R. of the legendary Bad Brains and many more. Joecephus and company are ready for full auditory assault in any venue that can take it. Exhibiting a tireless work ethic, the band has played Honky-tonk venues as well as Punk/ Metal clubs throughout the tri-state area. They have created a unique style by mixing “outlaw” country sounds with rockabilly rhythms in combination with hardcore metal drumbeats, blurring the boundaries of country, metal, and punk.
