Message:My own father got cancer when I was a teenager. I was older than Fern but I still remember that terrible time. He, also,used to walk out the roads at night because of the pain.
I was a headteacher (principal) when my daughter was at school and she hated it.
I used to think about writing a book when I was about eleven or twelve, but then forgot about it until after my retirement. I used to like making up stories for my class, though, and I used to include the children's names in the stories.
I would love to write a sequel to 'Gorgeous' but I'd have to get a publisher interested first.
Where is your school, by the way?

Message:Writers talk a lot about POV- that stands for 'point of view'. This book is written from Fern's point of view so I had to almost become her when I was writing it, I had to imagine very hard what she might say and, and, even more important, imagine what she might be feeling like, inside herself.
Does this answer your question?

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Thanks everyone for writing. Hope I've answered all of your questions. I think I have except the one about writing stories.
I never find it hard to get ideas - they just pop into my head. But then one has to make sure the book gets finished so I write a detailed plan, chapter by chapter, and make sure that I have a good ending before I begin.

Message:How long ...
I CANT REMEMBER - PROBABLY TWO TO THREE WEEKS FOR A BOOK OF THAT SIZE. I'M A FAST WRITER.
Would you ever consider finishing the sequal?
I WOULD IF A PUBLISHER WAS INTERESTED. MY AGENT TRIED ONE OR TO TO SEE IF 'GORGEOUS' COULD BE REPRINTED, BUT THERE WASN'T ANY INTEREST. 'I WAS JANE AUSTEN'S BEST FRIEND' IS ANOTHER OF MY 'FRIENDSHIP' BOOKS.
What age...
ABOUT 60.
.... based on real people?
ALL OF MY CHARACTERS ARE BASED ON REAL PEOPLE. OFTEN THEY 'STRAY' AS THE BOOK PROGRESSES.

Some very interesting questions. I'd be delighted to answer any more. And I am so thrilled that you like the book so much.

Message:Answers:
... 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.
