During her 2009 visit to Spain Margaret discovered a mysterious piece of statuary, a figure of
the knight reading a book which left her facinated with a chivalrous Spanish knight named Martin
Vasquez de Arce. With her lifelong interest in books she was intrigued by the statue
and knew she had to tell his story. After several years she was able to complete her first
juvenile novel chronicling the adventures of the knight and his squire as they travel across
Aragon and try to protect a very special codex.
The novel format represents a new opportunity to tell a richer story.
