... idea for the book?

THE IDEA FOR THE BOOK ORIGINATED IN SOMETHING WHICH HAPPENED WHEN I WAS A HEADTEACHER IN ENGLAND. A FILM DIRECTOR CAME TO MY SCHOOL (AND OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD) AND WANT TO INTERVIEW THE GIRLS IN YEAR 6 FOR A SMALL PART IN A FILM. IN THE END HE CHOSE SOMEONE FROM ANOTHER SCHOOL, BUT MY YEAR 6 TEACHER SAID TO ME:"JUST AS WELL; IT WOULD HAVE CAUSED TERRIBLE TROUBLE!"
...book THE ROSE exist?
NO, BUT THERE IS A BOOK CALLED 'THE GO-BETWEEN' AND THAT GAVE ME THE IDEA.

Message:I did write about half of a sequel some time, but never finished it. If I remember rightly, it was about Fern coming back from England after having had a wonderful time at the preview of the film; she goes to secondary school and there is a lot of jealousy about her fame...

Message:I'm so delighted to hear that. The Drumshee books were the first that I wrote and I am so fond of them.
The descendants of the children in 'The Famine' turn up in 'Titanic' and I think you might enjoy this. The books are well out of print, now, but you can get them quite cheaply from Amazon.

Message:Yes, I'm afraid that I now have two series going for adults: the 'Mara' books set in the Burren and the 'Reverend Mother' books set in the city of Cork in 1923 so I won't revert to young adults for at least a year. I would love to do a third Jane Austen, and some more about the 'Debutantes', but sales, though respectable, were not outstanding - most young people tend to borrow from library or friends and that doesn't pay the publisher's bills!

Message:Hello,
Do you have any plans to write a new historical series for teenagers now or in the future, or are you concentrating on the Burren mysteries?

Message:Hope all goes well with your writing, Hamilton. I thought you were an adult because your style is so mature.

Nessa: If you read my author's note (too long to reproduce here) you will see why the title was used.
Hope you enjoyed the books.

Message:Thank you for that great idea - the cogs in my brain are already wurring around thinking about the plot! It would be good to see the language and dress now compared to the the twenties! Just out of curiosity, what made you think I was older than I am?
