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.

Have you ever heard an instrumental song that inspired a story?
Anyway, I just thought that since I was here I would let you know how great I think you are and to say thanks for all the great books that helped me through my childhood!
It was great meeting you at the SCBWI Conference in Miami a few weeks ago. I loved your your workshop on Friday and your presentation on Saturday. You not only made me laugh but you also gave lots of great advice and insight for an aspiring writer like me. Unfortunately, I have always been a horribly slow reader, but when I do pick up a novel yours are at the top of a pile, with my favorites so far being the Magic Shop series. Your stories have that perfect combination of humor and imagination that a struggling reader like me needs.
We hope to see you at another conference in Florida soon. Thanks again for coming, and have a great weekend.
i wanted to share the description of Lila with you and see what you think of it.
There was a teenage girl standing in the doorway about 12 feet away from them. She was lean, about 5 4 in height, and very beautiful. She wore a red and blue outfit that revealed her arms, the lower half of her legs, and her midsection. Her skin was beige, and had a slight glow to it. She had sandal-like brown leather shoes on her feet, and wore a bright red full length cape secured around her neck with the same kind of chain as Byrons green cloak. She also had very pretty brown hair that extended down to her waist, her lips were thin, and her eyes were of a deep blue, like the sea after a violent tempest.
is this a good enough description of her? or is there something i'm missing? PLEASE let me know!
I have been a fan of yours for years. While making a list of books (there is a huge book fair here in AZ next month) I came across your website. I remember I wrote in this guest book back when I was 13, and I actually found my message! That was back in 2000. I am now 26. I started with your Unicorn Chronicles series. I finally had the pleasure of finishing the series last year, when I finally got my hands on 'The Final Hunt'. It was a long journey (more than half my life lol), but I was glad to have the privlige of reading that series. Bravo on the ending, and I hope you continue to write more stories such as that.
