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.
With the film industry releasing movies at an accelerated rate, we take a moment to notice how the powers have changed, in favor for the women of film. More adventurous, less yielding to commonality, more commanding while changing the true landscape of cinema. We've chosen, but a few of the many for our focus on the show's theme. Join in and tell us who your favorites are. Some picks are on longevity, some on body of work, and yet some on the excitement their character portrayals have created....What do you think?
Now that Ferguson has received the attention of the world, where does the community go from here? How does this broken and hurting community UNIFY and change their city for the better? Will they have a massive voter registration drive that will sign up every unregistered voter in St. Louis County? If successful, wil...l they take their voting power and remove their current Governor, Mayor and District Attorney from office? Will they DEMAND a new Police Chief that will work for all the people of Ferguson and provide transparency in the police department? If Ferguson was able to accomplish these things, maybe people could begin to say Michael Brown's death was not in vain but brought about positive change for the city of Ferguson.
Center Stage has covered the murder of Mike Brown for the past two weeks, please visit the links listed below to listen to the show. ( 1.)

Blood Profit$ - the blood of the many for the profits of a few Blood Profit$ is an epic tale of an American David and Goliath confrontation.
Julia Abbott, a diminutive Iraq war hero from Montana... AJ Morales, an Afghanistan veteran whose father was unjustly ruined through political mudslinging... Charlie Prendergast, son of the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff... Antonia Scozzari, daughter of a merger between the Boston and New York mobs... ... risking the ultimate sacrifice, an unlikely trio will come together forged by a pact to restore the spirit of the America Dream. Their quest will take them from war ravaged Iraq to the protected poppy fields of Afghanistan, into the lithium mines of Bolivia, to the smoke filled backrooms of the policy making power elite of Washington D.C. then deep into the internal workings of the drug smuggling American Mafia - where all that matters is power for personal gain.

Julia Roller:The first months and years of motherhood can be the most challenging and disorienting of your life—and faith. When you’re surrounded by the happy chaos of children, how do you spend quiet time with God if the only quiet time you get is while you sleep? How can you demonstrate a solid spiritual life to your children if you don’t have time to pursue one yourself?
When Julia Roller discovered that her spiritual growth had been stunted by the busyness of life with her toddler, she embarked on a yearlong journey through ten spiritual disciplines: prayer, fellowship, submission, study, simplicity, silence, worship, fasting, service, and celebration. As she focused on each discipline, she discovered practical ways to observe them—even in the chaos of her every day.
Mom Seeks God offers a highly relatable story and useful advice to help new moms grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer. As readers discover ten essential faith practices, they’ll learn that motherhood, itself, is a spiritual discipline, and may be God’s most effective technique for forming a more Christ-like life.
