My novel, The House That Alice Built is set in Cascais in Portugal, and it is one of the stars of the book. Images of it and other places I visit pop into my head and I often use them in my writing – it’s like I’ve filed them away for future use and they reappear when wanted. I thought I’d ask my fellow Choc-Lit and Ruby Fiction authors about their special places and how they inspire them. I call it Author Snapchat. 

Today Jackie Ladbury, who’s novel Happy Christmas Eve was published last month, shares her favourite places.
