Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way, I’ll introduce the author I am hosting on this hunt. I am super excited to be hosting…

 Sharon Biggs Waller! 


 About Sharon:
Sharon Biggs Waller is the author of the critically acclaimed young adult novel A MAD WICKED FOLLY. She discovered her love for gardening when she moved to England in 2000, and for the natural world when she became a national park ranger in the 1980s. THE FORBIDDEN ORCHID is her second novel and a Junior Library Guild selection.

 About THE FORBIDDEN ORCHID: 

The adventures of a British girl in China, hunting for the orchid that will save her family.
I heard Sharon spends 13 hours a day writing, which is why her books are so amazing.

And now, an exclusive video from Sharon!

From Sharon: Research through books and original content is fabulously helpful when writing historical fiction, but when I can, I try to travel to the settings in my book.  With THE FORBIDDEN ORCHID it was only possible to go to England—my funds didn’t stretch far enough to go to China, although I had some wonderful help with friends who knew the country very well.   For my YASH content I put together a little slideshow of some of the places I visited.  The song playing is an old Welsh tune called Saucy Sailor and it’s sung by the Wailin’ Jennys.  If you know where this song appears in the book, enter it in the comments section on my website, www.sharonbiggswaller.com, and I’ll send one lucky winner a neato prize!
