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.

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!
Thank you so much for the laughter and magic over the years! My especial favorites of your books have been your stories and compilations on unicorns. I would like to know, what has inspired you to write about unicorns in particular over the years?
So many young adult and adult fantasy/paranormal stories these days center around vampires, werewolves, zombies, and the like - dangerous creatures of the night that draw a stark contrast to the innocent and healing nature of the unicorn. I look back on my childhood fascination with unicorns and wonder: is there a place for unicorns in stories for adults today? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on this.
Always a fan,
P.S. Goblins on the Prowl was worth the wait!
I am a long time fan, and getting my daughter, Nola, into your books as well! We have been reading the Unicorn Chronicles (just finished book 2), and before these we read Jeremy Thatcher. She loves them!
When I was looking for the Unicorn Chronicles at a used book store where we lived in Denver, CO, I was amazed at how many of your books I had actually read back in the 90s. I knew you'd also written the Aliens ate My homework series, but I had forgotten about so many others! And I love that I can go back and read them with my daughter and still get just as much joy as the first time I read them.
I actually found a letter last year when I was going through a box at my parent's house. It was a letter I wrote to you when I was 10 years old (~1994). I saved it, but unfortunately have since misplaced it (we moved), but I laughed reading it. I was an ambitious kid, and I'm pretty sure I wanted to be your pen pal!
Honestly, if I had to credit a single author that influenced my love for reading scifi, it would be you.
Thank you for what you've written, thank you for all you do, and thank you for being so kind to your fans.
I read your books when I was in high school in Pakistan and loved them dearly. I don't know how, but my school library had a full set of signed books from you and they bought me and my friends much joy.
I still think about them randomly from time to time. Thank you very much for the happiness you gave my little 14 year old heart.
