Message:Cora: I've changed the last paragraphs in the last two chapters, and I'm about to send them in...I didn't really know what kind of changes to make, but I'll send them anyway and see what you think.

Message:Kristine: I've just read your last chapters and am about to put them on the Story Board.

I love it - it's excellent - all up to the last sentence, or perhaps just the last phrase. Somehow it seems just a little weak. Could you think of something else - a sort-of up-beat, uplifting last sentence. I'll have a think too, but I was not here yesterday and I wanted to put your story on as soon as possible

Aoibheann: I'm not too much into sport, I'm afraid, but it sounds like good news.

Message:Aoibheann: I'm glad you've thought about doing another story - I don't think that your heart was in that one about the Irish maid.

What you've sent me is a very good plan for a story, but not really a story. You are rushing too much. What you could do is have a chapter for each day of the week. Why don't you start on Monday and make that a whole chapter - describe what happens, give the names of the people in the story (don't say: 'My name is ...' that's just boring, but you can just slip it in like: 'Give me that, Orla,' shouted Moira, the greatest bully in the class. She grabbed my lunch and ...

Message:Krisitne: I look forward to reading your story tomorrow. Hopefully I will have posted it by the time that you get back from school.

Sinead: I remember Carrabane - a lovely school.
I agree with you about TREACHERY AT MIDNIGHT - I think it's the best children's book that I have written, though I agree that GORGEOUS has been very popular. I'm very engaged in books for adults at the moment, but hopefully I will get around to finishing TWICE AS GORGEOUS

Message:Aoibheann: I suppose authors write what children buy, otherwise it's hard to know what interests them.

Message:Hi,

I just purchased Michaelmas Tribute and am loving it. It's going to be tough waiting another year to get the next installment - particularly in light of the ending of Tribute. Great job! Please keep them coming.

Message:i don't see why most children's books are about breaking friends or making friends or fighting or things like that. i love a seris of books called heartland about a horse healing sanctuary
in virgina, and its very realalistic and very belivable

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Well, these were two very interesting emails - I'm quite surprised. i wonder what publishers would say to that. They are very obsessed with having 'modern' books.
I think that one of the best modern books that I have read is 'Sabriel' by Garth Nix and, of course, 'Northern Lights' by Phillip Pullman

From my own youth I loved 'Anne of Green Gables'

Name: Kristine
Message:Cora: While there are a lot of good modern books around, ones for pre-teen girls are mostly "Glitter Queens" and "Gossip Girls" and "The Sleepover Club", girly, glittery things like that. From the ages of eight to twelve I couldn't find anything decent to read, and it drove me crazy. While those books are good (if you like that sort of thing), they just don't compare with the books Aoibheann mentioned. They're true classics - I still cry every time I see the movie "Little Women"!

Message:aoibheann: That's no problem - just write when you have a comment on one of my books, a story to send or a question to ask. Don't think that you have to write every day.
Yes, I have read both of these books - they are definitely of my generation, but there are probably better books around today for people of your age.

I'm lucky to be retired. I can just write whenever I feel like it!

Message:Hi Cora - just thought I'd let you know that I probably won't get much writing done for the next couple of weeks, I've got exams coming up and I really want to do well in them, so I'm gonna put my main focus on study for a while...
