Message:Kaytlann:
That does sound frustrating.
I'd love to see one of your stories. Try planning a clever ending before you start a story and that would get around the difficulty of finishing a story if that is what prevents you from keeping them.
Hope you enjoy I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend.

Message:Ruairi & Dylan:
Yes, that would have been rather nice, but the necklace goes through all of the books - it was lost in the first book, found again in the third book, 'Castle at Drumshee' then placed back again when Grace had a vision of someone who was desperate - someone who really would need that necklace more than she did...

Message:Your book The Famine Secret from Drumshee was very good and interesting to see how many people actually died during the famine. It was very sad when there mum and dad died.
The ending was unexpecting because we all thought it was going to be a stash of food in the storeroom.

Message:Many thanks for the messages - Fiona is my favourite, also, Naomi.

You're probably right about Titanic being more exciting, Emma, but the Famine was such an important episode in the history of Ireland that it was a book I did really want to write.

I wonder whether you might be interested in reading a book about London, Megan. My latest book, The Montgomery Murder is going very well and is on the shortlist for five different 'Children's Book of the Year' awards in the UK.

Which is your favourite character out of both books, Caitai?

Message:Sorry, Aoife, the publisher who published the Drumshee books has finished so I don't think that there will be any more.
Have you tried 'The Montgomery Murder' or 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend' - these are my latest books.

Message:Anastasia:
Yes, I think that Jane is more my kind of girl, also, but when I was drawing the character of Jenny I wanted to make her a contrast to Jane.

I got my first book published after I retired from teaching, though now I wish that I had tried at an earlier stage because I do enjoy writing.
It's best not to think about publication until you get over your problem about finishing stories (which lots of people have). The next time you start to write a story try this. Invent a character ( a really interesting character) and give her (or him) a problem to solve - a quite serious problem.
In the solving of the problem you will find the ending for your story. Try it and see if it works for you.

Message:Ireland does sound beautiful! &the sequel sounds like its going to be just as great, im definetly going to buy it :D & its kind of hard to choose between them, i thought they were both really different in personalities &yet both just as interesting and fun to read about! But i think i might go with Jane, because i can relate to her more. oh & i have another question! Im hoping to be able to write a couple of books one day and be able to sell them as well, (ive started many but i never finish them for some reason), i was wondering when you published your first book? & was it hard, or did it take long to get it published? any advice for me? thanks!

Message:Dear Anastasia,
It's exciting for me to get a letter from someone in California. I live ion the west of Ireland, only seven miles from the coast of the Atlantic ocean. Itr's cool and wet most of the year, but very beautiful. The nearest house is about half a mile away but everyone is very neighbourly and help each other.
Yes, I have finished the sequel which is about Jenny and a big problem that suddenly arises for her and about Jane and her love life... The book is called JANE AUSTEN STOLE MY BOY FRIEND.
Which did you like best, Jenny or Jane?
Thanks for writing,
Cora.

Message:Alison: I think that you might do this project better if you had more interesting questions. Go to 'biography' on the top line of this website and read that. It answers most of these questions - except the one about which book is my favourite and I am never able to decide on that one, myself.

Once you have looked at that, the best thing would be to send me ten questions. that would give you a very good basis for an article on me.

Message:Alexandra:
That's wonderful news. I so love to hear of people enjoying 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend'. I think that the American cover is lovely.
I know what you mean about libraries. When I love a book, I want to have it on my book shelves and be bale to dip into it whenever I like. I'm thrilled that you feel like that about my book.
The sequel, 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend' (not said by Jenny - they remain great friends) will be out some time in the new year. It starts just a few days after the other one finishes.

Message:I put your book on hold at the library and when I got it, I loved it so much that I went out and bought it. I usually just get novels from the library and never buy them, but I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend was special.
After I read yours, I found another book about Jane Austen, and it wasn't nearly so good. How many more Jane Austens are there going to be, and when will they be coming out?
Thanks,
Alexandra (US)

I'm so delighted that you enjoyed the book. The sequel to it - all about Jane and Jenny - will be out in the New Year. It is called JANE AUSTEN STOLE MY BOYFRIEND and it is more about Jane and her romances and flirtations. I hope you like it as much as I WAS JANE AUSTEN'S BEST FRIEND
