Message:Nora: I'm so pleased that you enjoyed my visit to the library. I enjoyed it immensely myself.

No, I haven't put any of my family into my books, though I may have used some character traits from children that I used to teach - they are all adults now!

Message:Emma: I think that was one of the most interesting questions that I have ever been asked - perhaps the most interesting one!
I think it may be that the plots of my Drumshee books are fairly straightforward, but (I hope) the characters are well-drawn and realistic so that although you, as a reader, can guess what will happen, you do get yourself under the skin of the character so the outcome still comes as a surprise.
Does that help?

Message:Alisha: I hope you enjoy 'I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend'. I so loved writing that book, especially all about the gorgeous ball gowns they had. Everything was so romantic in those days.

Daragh: It was a pleasure to sign your book.
The ancient necklace that was found in the Burren in the nineteen-thirties was The Glenisheen Collar of Gold. You can see it in the National Museum if you go to Dublin.

Message:Hi Cora, I am the girl from the book club meeting in Limerick today. You told me to ask this question again so here it goes.
In your books you use a writing technique where the reader knows what is going to happen but when it actually happens it is a surprise. Talk soon, Emma.

Message:Thanks, Erica.

I hope your English teacher enjoys the book. It's amazing the number of adults who are buying I WAS JANE AUSTEN'S BEST FRIEND and seem to be enjoying it - even men. I suppose the world is full of Jane Austen fans!

Message:continued:

Stage 3: You need to explain why Sarah isn't present at the announcement. Perhaps she has an accident, jumps into a river to save a drowning puppy, twists an ankle in a race - something like that.
Stage 4: I think it might be best if Sarah got a prize as well when the judges found out why she was not able to attend the announcement

Message:Katherine:

I didn't put on your story because I think you have a good idea here and it's worth exploring properly. Try it like this.
Stage 1: The competion is announced by the teacher. The two friends are excited. they discuss writing a story and make plans for winning.
Stage 2: This should be about the writing of the story. Do it from both girls' point of view. End this stage with them handing in their stories (holding their thumbs for luck, or something).
