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! When Jeremy Thatcher: Dragon Hatcher was published, I was 9 years old. I read it and loved it! I kept my copy all these years! Now that my son is 9 years old, I gave my copy to him since he needed a fantasy novel to read for school. He started reading it last week and he loves it too! He can't wait for the local library to re-open (whenever that will be) so he can read your other books! He is especially looking forward to My Teacher is an Alien. Thank you for writing such amazing stories for kids!

Hi, Heidi - Many thanks for this lovely message. One of the great pleasures in having been around for as long as I have been is becoming a two-generation writer. I just love it so much when someone who read one of my books when he or she was a kid writes to tell me they are now sharing the story (or stories!) with their own child. It's pretty much the highest compliment a children's writer can get.
PS: Please tell your son I said hello!
