Name: Claire
Message:Hi Bridget: The nearest mountains to us are probably the mountains in Kerry. They are all very beautiful with purple heather. They are near the Lakes of Killarney. I wonder did your mother see them when she was in Ireland. They are probably the most beautiful thing in Ireland.

Hi Kate: Are you from Ballyglass school?

Name: Bridget
Message:Hi Claire:
Yes, I have seen the Snake River, since it's only about 45 minutes from my house. I don't think the mountains are the Salmon River Mountains, but they might be. Where I live people don't really call the mountains by their real names. They just say "the mountains".
Are there any mountains where you live? I don't have a map of Ireland, so I can't look myself. I know that everything's very green from what my mom has told me, so it's one of the places I most want to see. She visited Ireland when she was about twenty.

Message:Hi Bridget: I was looking on a map of Idaho and I wondered whether you had ever seen Snake rRver and whether the mountains that you talk about are the Salmon River Mountains

Everyone: Please put something on the story. What about Ballyglass school. Why was Cora inspired by your visit to the school?

Message:Hi Cora:
Not many people I know fell ready to see the movies either. I cry almost every time I think about the World Trade Center or Flight 97. I'm pretty bad when I see sad movies, too. Whenever I watch IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE on Christmas I cry, and SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE, and SONG OF BERNADETTE.

Hi Claire:
Our leaves are really bright colors already. My favorite place this time of year is up in the mountains. They're covered with evergreens, which make the changing leaves stand out even more.

Message:Stephen: I'm glad you enjoyed my visit. I'll try to pop in again some time.

Kate: I wasn't long enough in your school to get to know people as characters, but if you add something to the story then you can make it more real.

Niamh: Yes, I started a book about training, and buying and selling horses and it started off at Ballinasloe Horse Fair. Unfortunately the English publisher who wanted a 'horse' book didn't really want that sort of book so I never finished it. Funnily enough, I thought of it today as I was coming through Galway when I saw a notice saying that traffic to Dublin would be delayed because of Balinasloe Horse Fair.

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:I have started a new story. It is called Treasure Hunt and was inspired by my visit to Ballyglass School yesterday.

Bridget: I'm not sure that I could bear to see either of those movies. Those people who brought the plane down were unbelievably heroic. I think I would prefer to read a book about it. I am a terrible person for crying at the cinema when anything sad happens!

Claire: the leaves haven't turned colour yet here, in Co. Clare, either and we are further north than you are in Cork.

Message:Hi Bridget: I just had a quick look at my atlas to see where you were over in Idaho before I wrote back. I suppose you are in the middle Fall (that's what you call autumm in America, isn't it?)
The weather has been very wet here (per usual) and the leaves havne't turned colour yet. Everything is still very green. My mother says that you have beautiful colour in your leaves over there, she thinks. What does everything look like?

Message:Hi Cora:
There were two movies made this year about September 11th. One of them was about the World Trade Center, and the other was about the people on United Flight 97 who brought the plane down before it could hit another monument.

Hi Claire:
Thanksgiving day is on the 23rd. During World War II it was switched to the week after, and then switched back to the 23rd a year or two afterward.

Message:Grace: Yes, I will do that this evening.

Kate: I did write a sequel to 'Gorgeous'. It's called 'Twice as Gorgeous', but I'm not sure whether it will be published or not. I've also written a modern book called 'Fabulous'.

Tomás: The illustrator for the Drumshee Chronicles covers is called Helen Smith and she lives in London.

Katrina: I have had many editors, but my favourite was someone called Eilis. She was always very nice about telling me which bits of book she loved (before getting down to the criticisms.)

Daniel: I am not very artistic, but I try to help with ideas expressed in words, rather than sketches. 'A Life for a Life' was probably my design (roughly speaking).

Message:Ann-Marie: Nice to hear from you. I hope your project went well. I suppose school is a bit of a shock after all the fun during the summer.

Aoife: I remember reading once that a writer said 'Most people don't realise how many taps of the keyboard go into every book.' This is true. Writing is hard work, though enjoyable, but there comes a time when lots of people just put it aside and then the story never gets finished. I think the thing to do is to have a plan before you start and then to make yourself do a little every day.

Message:I am, like, SOOO sorry that I can't keep up with adding bits onto my stories. Most of the stuff I write usually ends up unfinished and forgotten about! But anyway, tonight I am adding another few chapters onto my story 'Abandoned' because I really want to get it finished. I have worked out a plot for my story and I hope that you and other readers will like it!
Lots of Love, Aoife.

Message:Linda: I'm very flattered to think that I might have inspired you. Do let me know if can help in any way with your essay.
I don't think 'Gorgeous 2' will be coming out. The publisher who printed 'Gorgeous' thinks that Irish-published children's books don't do well in Ireland so now I am going to concentrate on English publishers.
