Marcia Williams

A self-confessed ‘obsessive illustrator’, Marcia Williams has written and illustrated numerous books since ‘The First Christmas’ was published in 1987. Many of these have been retellings of classic stories – from Noah’s Ark to Don Quixote – illustrated in her distinctive cartoon-strip style. She has retold several of Shakespeare’s plays and taken to the boards herself to play the Bard in a production based on her books, culminating in a performance in Stratford-upon-Avon.
