Hi, my name is Tina Johnston. I am a writer of travel books. I love Morocco and especially Taghazout. Years ago I built a house in one of the beautiful mountain village behind Taghazout which I visit as often as I can. The village people are my family, and I feel honoured that they accepted me into their lives all those years ago. Back then there was no foreigner living in the village. Nowadays many luxurious villas have been built on the outskirts. My house is not a splendid villa. But it is right in the middle of the village. I can pop over to see my neighbours for tea, or we meet outside for a chat. The children, when not at school, run around, singing and playing, until long after dark. My neighbour helps whenever work needs doing on the house and looks after it when I am back in England. I like to walk down to Taghazout and sit in one of the cafes, watching the world go by. And my daughter loves surfing. Of course! 

One of my books Tomorrow, Insha’Allah! is a half-fictional account of the time when I built the house. It is about the hilarious misunderstandings due to language problems and difference in culture, the difficulties and milestones I had to overcome. But it is also about the mutual respect and friendship, which slowly developed between the village people and me. Couscous with Pauline is the sequel to this book. 

My books are available at www.amazon.co.uk or directly from my publisher www.greensunsetbooks.co.uk
