Autho, journalist and screenwriter Martin Kirby has written four books – the latest, Shaking the Tree: Mother’s Garden – The Growing Years was published in December 2010.

Shaking The Tree is the second part of the inspirational true story of a Norfolk family – Martin Kirby, Maggie Whitman, and their children Ella and Joe Joe. Now, in another laugh-out-loud, heartfelt, honest account of life on the wild side, Martin lays bare the joys, fears and tribulations that face anyone who falls in love with the idea of a Mediterranean escape. This moving account of starting afresh, somewhere far from all they knew, goes to the heart of fulfilment, the value of family, the importance of time; and it asks important questions of us all.
