Debbie Jenkins is an entrepreneur, author and publisher and was a life-long city dweller who always longed for a place in the countryside. Her greatest excitement is in owning trees - hundreds of them! She's learning to ride a horse and to show jump, loves doing acrylic paintings and spends most of her time caring for her ever-growing cat and dog colony!
Her co-author and husband, Marcus Jenkins is a consultant software engineer specialising in the map and navigation fields. He travelled extensively in his youth, giving him a taste for living abroad. He enjoys hacking in metal with his lathe and mill in his spare time, usually with Randy the cat watching. He's learning to play the bass guitar and enjoys driving his boat in the Med.
The authors' Cave House is in the mountains near Corvera, 1 km away from a small village called La Murta, with a population (including them) of 101 people. The village is tidy and peaceful and inhabited by dedicated farmers. They serve on the village fiesta committee most years.
In June 2001 Debbie and Marcus bought a small warehouse, attached to some caves, with 6.5 acres of land. In August 2005 they moved into their new house to enjoy the Murcian lifestyle - going native in Murcia - which they now enjoy with their two rescue dogs, Dani and Fuggles, their six bin cats, Randy, Catalina, Hawkeye, BJ, Hotlips & Radar, their horse Renoir and assorted chickens.
In 2006 Debbie and Marcus bought a second house in the Murcia region in the pretty mountain village of Moratalla.
