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.

Does the main character in a story always have to solve the problem on his own or can someone else help him?
My class enjoyed attending your talk. Thanks for gracing Nouakchott with your presence. And yes! I am using your acronym (GSIGSO).
I read always october and fell in love. I got so many kids I know stuck on it. I liked it so much that I came up with a sequel called "never november." In it Jake and Lily return to Always October to find it's been taken over ( by guess who) and turned into a place where all the monsters are humans. It's up to Jake and Lily to save Always October again. Or will they be to late? So what do you think? If you like it, you should know I'm 11 on feb. 26 2013.
P.S. I played Freya in "The Theft of Thor's Hammer" last year.
Yours truly, Zaynah
I just finished reading Almost October last night and loved it! As an adult (a couple years younger than you) my guilty pleasure is reading kids books. This is one of the best I've read in quite a while. Thank you for writing such a great story.
p.s. I'm originally from Rochester, NY - nice to know someone from my neck of the woods is such a great author. Please keep writing!

How could you write My teacher is an Alien as if you were a young girl in 6th grade so well? It must be so hard. Do you cracking codes if you had the key? I love to.
How do you get inspired about the fantasy part of your books? Do your ideas only come from the real world or dreams? Do you sometimes get scared about the reviews for your books?
I just wanted to send a special thank you for being such an inspiration to me growing up. I have always loved your stories, and the first book I remember my parents reading to me was Sarahs Unicorn. This book has always been special to me, since my name is Sara too, and I always imagined myself in the main characters shoes with a friend like Oakhorn. I remember even writing him letters too, that I would leave in the kitchen, hoping he would somehow read them. In retrospect, it was silly, but my parents would often play along and write back as "Oakhorn the Unicorn," leaving the messages for me to find. I couldn't figure out how a unicorn could write letters with no hands, but attributed it to magic until I eventually realized that I recognized the handwriting... Go figure... ha ha. It WAS magic while it lasted though, and inspired me to start writing my own stories for fun.
When I was a little older, I read all the Space Brat books, as well as the My Teacher is an Alien series. I still have all the originals, and I practically devoured them when they were new. I have very fond memories of sitting in my room after I was supposed to be asleep, reading them. Plus, my brother loved them too!
Now that I am a "grown-up," (which is a relative term- I fear I will never completely be one) I am working in the science writing and communication fields, but would love to write a great fantasy or sci-fi novel one day too! ^_^
I hope you continue writing, and although I am no longer a little girl, I feel I will always enjoy your stories because they keep us young at heart. I will be sure to keep an eye out for new things from you. I'm so glad I found this site to tell you!
