Great Christmas Tree Tour 2016: Margaret Daley
We always decorate our Christmas tree Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a family project with my mother-in-law, husband, son and two granddaughters. As I take out the Christmas ornaments, I love to tell my granddaughters the history behind the decoration. Often they have been made by someone special. I have ornaments my mother, mother-in-law, son and granddaughters have made. I have some from when I was a child. When my mother died, they became mine. When I look at my Christmas tree, it is full of memories with the people I love.
The one with pink boas and flamingos is in my office and left up year around.

Margaret has been writing for over 35 years. She started writing in the late 1970s because she wanted to see if she could put a whole story down on paper. That book is still in the drawer and will never see the light of day. But she was able to finish a book, which was her goal.
She decided after that to get some help, and joined a writers' roundtable where she met once a week with some fellow writers who went over each other's work. She sold her first book in the early 1980s and has been selling ever since. She loves to tell a story. When she was a little girl she made up stories while playing with her dolls. On long trips with her family she would weave a story about the surrounding countryside. From those early beginnings grew a love of entertaining people with a story. She has sold nearly 5 million books worldwide with over 90 books.
