Meet The Author: Julia Ibbotson

Have you booked your tickets for our What’s Cooking event yet?

If not here’s a little encouragement in the form of some background to one of the fabulous authors who will be on hand to talk about her book The Old Rectory: Escape to a Country Kitchen and some of the recipes it contains.

The Old Rectory:  Escape to a Country Kitchen - Julia Ibbotson
The Old Rectory: Escape to a Country Kitchen

Julia Ibbotson lives with her second husband in the heart of England in a renovated Victorian rectory. With their four children having grown up, she is now suffering from empty nest syndrome.

Julia read English and Sociology at Keele University after a turbulent but exciting gap year in Ghana. She wrote her first novel at 10 years of age, but life (and the need to earn a living as a single mother) intruded and she became a school teacher. On gaining her PhD as a (very) mature student, Julia moved on to be a university lecturer.

Apart from academic research texts, Julia has written a memoir The Old Rectory: Escape to a Country Kitchen (with recipes) and a children’s book S.C.A.R.S, before embarking on her Drumbeats trilogy.

Julia is currently completing a new novel, A Shape on the Air, a historical/romance time-slip story. Apart from insatiable reading, she loves travelling the world, singing in a community choir and a rock choir, swimming, yoga, Pilates, and walking in the English countryside.
