It is with profound sadness that Marcia's son Charles and family, her many friends and literary agent have to tell you that Marcia died on June 30th.

Her cancer returned and in November she was given six months and she lasted seven, passing away peacefully with her family at her side.

Ever the professional, Marcia managed to deliver her final book under her contract to Transworld and it will be published in October 2022. Readers of the Chadwick Trilogy will be delighted to meet the family again in 'Christmas At The Keep', a short novella which will be published as a small format hardback in time for Christmas. As her agent says, "every stocking should have a copy."

Marcia loved the feedback she got from her readers, and we are sure she would like us to thank you for your loyalty.
