A Q & A with #author Rebecca Powell @BeccaPowellUK

Today I have the pleasure of the company of author of The Brazilian Husband, Rebecca Powell .

Now living in France, but born in Bristol, ‘Rebecca discovered an early love of stories from weekly visits to the local library with her mum, sister and brothers (novelists Gareth L Powell and Huw Powell) and from hours spent with her dad sitting around an old tape recorder making up adventures.

Inspired by her experiences of life, Rebecca followed the advice of just about every literary guru, and started to write what she knew: the joy and insecurities of motherhood; the early loss of a parent; and of course, the country she loved so dearly, Brazil.’

It was the beginning of a story which was to become her debut novel, The Brazilian Husband, which was published earlier this year.
