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.

Hi! I've been a big fan of your books since I was a kid. I think Jennifer Murdley's Toad was the one that started it off, and it was downhill from there. I remember checking out your anthologies of scary stories from my school library frequently, and some of them still haunt me to this day! I just revisited The Unicorn Chronicles again, one of many times that I have done so over the years (my copy of Into the Land of the Unicorns, the only installment of the series I have on paperback, is starting to fall apart). I think I first read that one when I was eight, and you finished the series when I was about twenty three. I didn't feel very patient about it at the time, but it was well worth the wait, and I very much remember how excited I was when the third and fourth books finally came out! It remains one of my all-time favorite series.
I love escaping to Luster, and I think it shows me something new every time. Thank you so much for many wonderful hours spent, and many more to come!

Thanks for this lovely message! As someone who used to use books to escape into fantasy worlds myself, it delights me to know that you could escape into a world that I created. I really wanted to create something that kids could love the way I had loved the books of my own childhood and youth!

Thanks for forgiving me for the terrible delay it took me to finish the series. It turned out to be a much bigger story than I had imagined when I began!
