Rebecca Boxall was born in East Sussex in 1977 and grew up in a bustling Vicarage always filled with family, friends and parishioners. She now lives by the sea in Jersey with her husband, children and cats. She read English at the University of Warwick before training as a lawyer and also studied Creative Writing with The Writer's Bureau.
Rebecca's first three novels became international bestsellers, proving popular with readers interested in seasonal novels that are feel-good without being too fluffy. Her latest festive novella - The Christmas Forest - was released in November 2018.

About 'Christmas at the Vicarage': "I was inspired to write by Rosamunde Pilcher, my favourite writer, whose books I've re-read a million times. There's something so gentle and soothing about her books and I wanted to try to pen something similarly feel-good, but with drama too. They always say write about what you know and so I decided to focus on Vicarage life as I grew up in a village parish as the daughter of an eccentric vicar. When my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer it was the final push I needed to write a book based on life at a Vicarage, with a character inspired by him (the vicar!). He read the book in draft but sadly died before it was published. I hope you enjoy the book. If you do, I'd be massively grateful if you'd consider writing a brief review. Thank you!"
