Message:Nora: Was Mallesh your favourite character?
It might be a good idea for him to drop in to see the boys in one of the future books. I'm just about to write book 4 so I might use him in that. So now you have inspired me!

Message:Carola: Your English is excellent! I could not imagine being able to speak Dutch as well as that.
I'm delighted you liked 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend'. I got a lot of inspiration for the character of Jane from the funny stories she wrote when she was a young teenager and I tried to make Jenny to be completely opposite to her.

Message:Hi, I have just finished reading the book 'I was Jane Austens best friend'. I thought it was a lovely book. I really enjoyed reading it. You gave it a nice turn especially with Henry and Captain Thomas Williams. I have to write a report about this book for school. Thank You for the book.
PS. Sorry if my English is bad I am 13 years old and I'm from the Netherlands. I am still learning to speak english.

Message:Kristine: Don't worry about it - I fully understand. I must say these days I feel as if I have taken on a few too many books, myself.
However, I've been shortlisted for the Hillingdon and the Stockton Book of the Year Awards so it will be a great boost if I get one of those!

I hope you are well, Sarah.,

Message:Cora: I just wanted to apologise for not updating my story...I'm doing the Leaving Cert this year so school work is really taking up most of my time! I just wanted to let you know that I haven't just abandoned it or left it unfinished...I have the best of intentions to complete it, but I don't see that happening at the moment...

Message:Sarah, I'd suggest 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend' if you like a long book that is about romance - but if you like something fast-moving and exciting you could try 'The Montgomery Murder'.

Message:Thanks, Ellen, I'm glad that you like the books.
Oddly enough, sometimes something you read while researching brings an idea.
Otherwise I suppose because I read a lot I have lots of ideas in my head.
Have you read The Montgomery Murder? That is my latest book - it's a bout London, not Ireland

Message:Lisa: Yes, I meant in the early days of the sixteenth century - and afterwards.
I've a feeling that there was one of the clan, called 'the blind abbot', who was prominant in the time of Queen Elizabeth I.
You will probably find quite a lot about the family on the Internet if you look it up - where do you live - Ireland or America?

Message:Thanks Cora -'at that time' do you mean the time of the setting of the book - 1509?

Message:Sorry, Lisa, for the delay. I meant to look up my notes and forgot until now.

Yes, the name Mac William came originally from the Burkes - an anglo norman family. They split into two clans - The Mac William (son of William) and ClanRickarde (sons of Rickarde or Richard). Both clans were very powerful in the west of Ireland at that time.

Hope this helps.

Message:Hi Cora

Just finished reading My Lady Judge. On p. 135, it mentions a MacWilliam. Did this have any basis? Was there MacWilliam's in Ireland to your knowledge?
Thanks

Message:Pauline: I look forward to hearing from you. I hope that you enjoy 1798

Isaac: I I hope that you like Deadly Fire. Please let me know - and especially useful is to know whether you guessed the murderer or whether it was a great surprise to you. Murder on Stage should be out at the end of the year.

Message:We really liked the Montgomery Murder and have just bought The Deadly Fire and can't wait to read it.
Can you tell me when Murder on Stage will be published, please?

Message:I'm so sorry I haven't commented or sent any stories in lately! I was really busy. I started reading the Secret of 1798 yesterday and I love it so far! I like how Bess saved Michael from almost drowning, it just shows dogs can also have a heart.

Message:"I Was Jane Austen's best Friend" was based really on what is known about her life and about the life of of Jenny Cooper.

There are characters in the story which resemble characters in all of the Jane Austen books. I had fun imagining Jane noticing interesting or amusing things about people around her and that later on she put them into her books.

Message:thank you very mutch and the first book cover was beautiful and sore the next one wil also be, im very glad to hear that there is going to be a next book, looking forward to it.
