Happy Christmas!

I cannot believe that another year has passed so quickly and here we are at Christmas.

It has been a busy book year writing Rebel Sisters and doing lots of book events all over the place and getting the chance to meet so many readers.
There were wonderful celebrations to mark 25 years since the publication of Under the Hawthorn Tree.

Children of the Famine trilogy Chinese editionsThe celebrations continue as it – alongside Wildflower Girl and Fields of Home – has just come out in China. I do hope readers there will enjoy ‘The Children of the Famine’ trilogy.

The Christmas tree is up; the house is decked out with holly and ivy from the garden. Even my dog, Buster, is getting into the festive spirit as he sits on my writing chair at my desk – with plans to write a book!!

Marita's dog, BusterHappy Christmas to all and wishing you a bright new year in 2016!
