Carol Drinkwater is a multi-award winning actress who is best known for her portrayal of Helen Herriot in the BBC television series All Creatures Great and Small. Carol is the author of twenty-one books, both fiction and non-fiction, and has achieved bestselling status - over a million copies sold worldwide - with her quartet of memoirs set on her olive farm in the south of France. Carol's fascination with the olive tree extended to a solo Mediterranean journey in search of the tree's mythical secrets. The resulting bestselling travel books, The Olive Route and The Olive Tree, have also inspired a five-part documentary film series. Carol's three short stories released as Kindle Singles - The Girl in Room Fourteen, Hotel Paradise and A Simple Act of Kindness - have reached the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic.
