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.

My name's Samantha Young, and I'm seventeen years old. I read in your biography that you started working seriously to become a writer when you were my age, and I've just started to become serious about it myself. As a kid, I LOVED your books. Two of the first books my mum read to me, before I could read myself, were 'The Dragonslayers' and 'The World's Worst Fairy Godmother.' I even remember a time as a kid when I thought my teacher was an alien! I really believe your books were a large part of keeping my imagination alive; I was bullied a lot when I was younger, and if I hadn't read so much, I probably would have lost my love of fantasy and the bizarre. Reading your books was a prominent part of my childhood that I still remember today, and they were some of my best friends growing up. So...thank you, seriously. Hopefully you'll be hearing from me in the future! 🙂
Were you a teacher when you married Katherine?
What year was it?
Quick question, how should i approach Willie? She is not mean and I dont want to look too stubborn...any ideas? Loooking forward to seeing you,
I wanted to thank you for your unicorn chronicles series though I've only read the first two. I found the second one and read it then looked for the first to read and only found your site and the other two. My question I would love answered is the cover art for my copies are different then the current cover art, why did it change? I would like to say I do love the old cover art. =)
Has anyone of your family members ever inspired your stories? What is the most challenging step of the writing process? Have you ever used math or science or art or music that you learned at school ever been used in your story? What is your favorite book you have written? Have you ever wanted to be in your book? Do you ever wish you were jeremy in jeremy thatcher dragon hatcher?
I've been a long-time fan of your Unicorn Chronicles and Magic Shop books, but I have one question. What are you working on now? 🙂 I haven't heard about anything new since The Last Hunt came out.
It's My birthday tommorow!!!! I am so excited! When is your birthday? Oh yeah, sorry for all those questions in my first message!
Sadly, my sister will never let me read to her. She is always doing other stuff. And she doesn't care about books. All my favorite books my class read last year i loved, but she is reading them now and says they are boring.I guess she is not much of a reading person.
