Message:Dear Butterfly,
That book, 'Treachery at Midnight' is a great favourite of mine and I'm so pleased you liked it. Why don't you try 'Doomed to Die'. They both were written around the same time and they have the same sort of feel about them, I think.

Message:Dear Grace/Heather,
Yes, I remember you so well and you were and still are a wonderful writer. Do keep it up and keep in touch. I sometimes feel that I have a whole family out there of the people who read my books and then shared their own writing with me.

Message:Grace here once again. This is the second part of my message.
I'm 15 now but I still remember clearly every comment & good wish you gave me. I decided to send you my competition entry, sort of as a token of thanks for practically teaching me how to write well, & I also would love some of your valuable critique as I still have a big interest in becoming an author. Thank you very much for everything & I hope you enjoy the story. All the best, Grace

Message:Hi Cora,
I'm sending you a message to say hi and explain to you who I am. Iím Grace, & I'm from Mayo. Years ago, when I was 10 years old, I started writing to you under the name "Heather". I posted several stories & happened to win a few competitions of yours. I will certainly not be offended if you don't remember me; you've given advice to so many young aspiring writers over the years. I really feel you've inspired me & encouraged me to keep writing, and as I wrote an entry for a local Story competition I thought back to the many times I excitedly sent you my stories. If you donít mind, Iíd like to continue this post in a separate message, as itís too long.

Message:You're right there.

Poor ye! Is it blocked badly?

I'm starting a snowman at school tomorrow.
Stil not done the scarf though hehe.

The Anual Late Late Toy Show is on tomorrow. The First with Ryan Tubirdey. (Sorry I'm unsure how to spell it.) I prefere Pat Kenny but...

Anyway I'm staying at my best friend's house with my best friends.
Remember Sadhbh?
It's her house, in Quin, and being a regular there we can do many the thing there.
Also, my other best friends Shauna And Nicole are coming too. It's going to be great fun. Of course I'll be bringing my knitting!

Message:I think you are right - authors do sometimes panic - I do, though I do always have a plan, but sometimes I think - is this material ever going to last a whole book!
But then I just concentrate on describing what's happening and what the people are thinking and feeling and so far, (fingers crossed) it has seemed to work out.
I think you're right. You just need to push yourself rather than taking the easy option of starting a new story.
Yes, I can knit, but I haven't done it since my children were young (a long time ago!)
We've been blocked in by the flood, but I have been busy writing so it hasn't bothered me.

Message:I know, It doesn't seem that long.

Seems Obvious that I read does it?
Of course every one reads.
My reading ability has improved, Has my Vocabulary but I haven't heard of 'Amy Green'.

Could you name the Author?

I find that with myself too. Rushing and Such...
Anyway...I've read in Books that the writer's find that too but push themselves on. I'm going to pursue such ideas.

The flooding has improved. School is open but big traffic jam's cause everyone to be late but still open. First day open was today.

Can you knit? I've been thought in school,home etc. I've found the knitting bug and etc ha.
So Far, I've knitted a hairband, two wristbands and am on a scarf.

Message:Goodness, is it that long!

Yes, you have improved and I can guess that you are a reader - in fact I wonder whether you are reading 'Amy Green' at the moment...

Your big problem is that you will not stick at a story. You get a good idea and start racing up the field with it (as if it was a game of hurley) and then you run out of steam and abandon it.

Remember that it's often while a writer is wrestling with ideas to keep the story going that the best ideas come.

So do try to make some sort of plan. If a better idea comes along, then you grab that idea, but if it doesn't, at least the story keeps going.

How's the flooding in Ennis? Is your school open?

Message:Cora:

I've just been thinking back about your visit in 2007. You picked me out as Fern, and I've been writing here since then. I've changed ha.
I'm no longer in Fourth Class Anymore of Course.
I'm Currently in Sixth Class in my last year at The Gaelscoil....Next year I'm heading off to GaeilColaiste Secondary School....Continuing with the Irish anyway.
I was wondering could you tell me if my Writing has 'Improved'? I've been thinking about it..as I find writing quite easy to do. I know my Words have shot up as I've read more over the years.
I'm Just Wondering.
