Welcome to the Guestbook!

I’m always eager to read your comments about my books and stories, so please feel free to pitch in. Here are a few things for you to know:

1) I answer the messages here personally.

2) No message shows up here until I actually answer it to prevent spam and other inappropriate postings. So there will sometimes be a delay before your message posts, especially if I am traveling.

3) Teachers, a gentle request: Please do not have multiple children send me variants of the same message. A group email is much easier to respond to and not such a drain on my time. My thanks in advance for being alert to this.

You've been my "literary rock" since 1993. I love your books! It really has been a pleasure as an adult to re-read my collection after having it packed away for the last 19 years. Thank you for the fantastic adventures and imaginative, yet relatable characters.

P.S. Goblins on the Prowl was worth the wait!

What a lovely message. Since I totally love "The Rock" being someone's "Literary Rock" feels like a great compliment.

Even more of a compliment is that you love the books on re-reading. I have always tried to write in a way that would delight my kid audience yet at the same time be something my adult readers (generally parents and teachers) could enjoy. The fact that you liked GOBLINS ON THE PROWL is the icing on the cake. Man, that book was hard to do. But I was really happy with it when I had finally finished, so your approval means a great deal to me!

All best,
