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'

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.

Message:Marie: Thanks for your message - which book do you like best?
Aoibheann: You could do a story about your experiences in the drama competition. Start with being selected - perhaps for the lead part, then talk about the first showing at An Glor and go on from there. The nice thing about a story is that your group can eventually be the winners.

Message:Dear Kristine
I'm so sorry that you were worried. The problem was that I didn't manage to transer chapter Six. No, I think it's great -, much improved. You really are a wonderful writer - not just for your age - but a wonderful writer - full stop!
