Well, another year has almost come to a close. This may not be quite as eloquent as the Queen's Christmas message, but I'd simply like to thank my clients who have supported me during 2011. Thank you for allowing me to be creative, because that's what I love. In lieu of posting Christmas cards this year, I decided to donate to Oxfam instead. I apologise for not posting a card to each of you, but I thought a donation to those in need was more meaningful.
This year was very busy, and at long last my third picture book, The Box Boy was released by Windy Hollow Books. My editor, Helen Chamberlin and the Windy Hollow team were a pleasure to work with. I am very grateful for their support.
I hope that you all have a safe and restful festive season. I look forward to working with you all again in 2012.
From Mal (and The Box Boy).
