Easter weekend is nearly upon us, so before I get caught up in the midst of family clamouring for attention, I wanted to take this chance to thank you for being part of my life by reading my blog and wish you the best for this time of the year.

I hope, whatever Easter means to you, that you enjoy any time that you get to spend with loved ones, recharge your batteries and make the most of this springtime (well when it arrives - it appears to have got lost).

Wishing you all a Happy Easter,

Love Marie.

Patchwork Dog has a knack for getting into trouble and his best friend, Calico Cat usually winds up right in the middle of the mess with him.

Twig Stories’ royalties are shared with conservation nonprofits.
When a melting glacier bursts an ice dam, a river floods an old growth forest, and surrounds an ancient tree. Impish, stick creatures – the Old Seeder Twigs - are stranded. Their fate is tied to a goliath, sinister beaver named Slapper and his colony. But will they help?
Have you ever wished your cat could talk or wondered where he/she goes when you are not around? Kiwi in Cat City is the first book in a series, of which there are six fun adventures so far. 

Kiwi seems like a typical moggie, content to nap in the sun and chase shadows, but she has a secret: she is a magical cat from a place called Cat City. With her two humans, James and Amy, Kiwi finds mysteries and adventures, dealing with catnappings, jewel thieves, giant rats, time travel, haunted houses, Father Christmas, pyramids and more. The fun stories contain positive messages about loyalty, friendship, honesty, bullying and the power of standing together. 
So now you know what to ask the Easter Bunny to bring. They may cost a little more but they will last a lot longer (perhaps 2 or more relatives could club together)
Whatever you get for Easter I hope you have a great one and all that remains is for me to thank all the authors for taking part and allowing me to showcase their work.
Happy Easter
