Message:Ursula: Yes, I have written most of it (and it is dedicated to you) - it's now a matter of waiting to see how it fits into my publishers program. There are about 32,000 words in it - I usually reckon that there are about 300 words to a page and about 2,000 to a chapter.

Cillian: I've just put your new bit on to your story. It's great - very exciting.

Claire: that's a great idea about the family tree.

Cian: Yes, I have ideas for more murder stories - at the moment I am writing a murder story for adults.

Message:Hi cora
I was just interested in knowing how many words are in a book such as gorgeous?
Have you started the second one yet?

Message:Hi Claire:
In the summer I'm swimming a lot, so I get fairly tanned. But in the winter I'm probably the whitest person in my family.
In Idaho it's sunny, but chilly. All summer I've been waking up hot in the mornings. For the past two days I've been waking up shivering.

Message:Hi Cora,
I was just thinking that it would be a brill idea if you put a sort of family tree on this website of the people who lived at Drumshee. I've noticed that the books are beginning to join up for instence Secret Spy is a bridge between 1798 and Famine Secret and World War II links up with Drumshee Rebels and with Titanic.

Bridget: You sound very grown-up too. I have black hair, white skin (I don't tan very well) and blue eyes. That's supposed to look Irish, I think. What's the weather like in Idaho today? - its cloudy here in Cork but at least its not raining.

Message:Hi Cora: I thought Treachery at Midnight was your best book, but I also liked the two murder stories. Are you planning to write any other murders?
Hi Eanna: I always think that I'd like to live in Dublin especially in the winter, but this summer I've been swimming with a dolphin in Kerry and last week I went shark fishing for the first time so now I'm begining to think that there are adventages in living in Kerry near to the sea.

When we have a wet spring or snowy winter, Idaho is fairly green until winter the next year. And then it looks nicer than any place I've ever been. But in the big cities everything is made of plexi-glass. The only green there is either painted of artificial.

Message:Cliona: I'm very pleased you said that. Some people are not so keen on that book because of the fact that the main character, Ronan, is so disabled. However, I think it's one of the best character sketches that I have done. It was quite hard to get 'under the skin' of someone who could not move, or even talk.

A prom is a dance for teenagers who are almost in college. It celebrates their last year in highschool, which is right before college.

I always think that 'SecretrSpy from Drumshee' is your best book.
Hi Bridget: I found that very interesting. I'm like Cora I want to know what a prom is. Please write back.

Everything sounds so pretty. Right now our yard needs to be mowed so it's brown in some places. There isn't a cloud in the sky, and like always, in the early morning, the sun is shining through the window and blinding everybody.

Message:Bridget: I am sitting at my computer in the spare bedroom of my cottage and looking out of the window. It has been raining earlier and everything looks a misty green. Some of the fields on the hill opposite have had the hay cut and these are a pale green, some fields are being grazed by suckler herds of cows and these are a bright green and, here and there, there are clumps of woodland and these are a very dark green. I think it looks very beautiful!

Jennifer: Nice to hear from you again. I'll let you know as soon as Doomed to Die comes out.

Message:Hi Cora jennifer here - haven't written for ages, but it is raining this morning and I started to read Viking at Drumshee for the fifth time and I really enjoyed it even though I know the story. |I hope the new story Doomed to Die is as good. I like the title.

Message:Hi Cora:
Yes, in Idaho it is fairly hot. It's more humid than usual, but we had a wet Spring.
During Summer things are fairly quiet, unless we have some friends at our house. When we have people over, our neighborhood needs earplugs very badly.
My family is Irish, but my mom is the only person who's been there. I have always thought Ireland must be one of the prettiest places in the world. And all the movies I've seen that take place in Ireland are always so green! In Idaho everything is a greenish brown. What is Summer like in Ireland?

Thanks! It will be much easier to post messages now!
Hi Claire:
I'm not allowed to put personal information like my age on the internet, but I am a kid and if I lived in Ireland, I wouldn't be in Secondary School yet.
I know how it feels to start a different school, I had been in one school for several years before my mom decided to homeschool me. I was upset to be leaving all my friends, but I did make more!
Since you asked what I look like, I have shoulder-length brown hair, and people tell me I look very grown-up for my age.

Message:Hi Bridget:
How old are you? I am almost thirteen and I will be going to secondary school in September. In some ways I can't wait but in others I feel quite frightened about it. Some of my friends from Primary, or National School will be going with me, but most are going to a different school including one of my best friends. My Mom says I'll make new friends, but I'm not sure. Please write back and tell me what you look like.

Message:Bridget: Like everyone else I found your account of your life in Idaho to be fascinating. What is it like there during the summer months? Is it hot? Please do call me Cora. Ireland is a very informal place!
Bridget & Eanna: Congratulations on a great story (thought there is no reason why other people can't take part.)

We have to be twelve to have a gun, but when we use it, we have to be supervised.
Hi Claire:
Swimming in Kerry sounds like a lot of fun. I rarely get to see open water, other than rivers and lakes.
I have read some of Cora Harrison's books, but not the Drumshee Chronicles. They sound good!
Hi Cian:
I don't have a gun club, I just go shooting with a friend. Are potatoes important crops in Ireland? They are where I live. Other than corn that's about all farmers grow. What do you think of plumbing as a job?
Hi Ms Harrison:
I've noticed that most people call you Cora. I'm so used to called an adult Ms or Mr, so I wasn't sure if you thought it was appropriate if I called you Cora or not.

Message:Bridget: It sounds really cool to go to gun club. I don't think were allowed to have a gun under eighteen, or perhaps it's twenty-one. My dad has a licence for a shotgun. He shoots crows with it when they start rooting up our potatoes.
By the way, I live in Kerry in the south-west of Ireland. I live near the sea - in fact I can see it from my bedroom window. We have a 150 acre farm. I'm hoping to be a farmer when I grow up, but my dad says that there's not much of a future in it. He thinks that I should be a plumber!

Message:message 2 for Bridget
Have you read any of Cora's books. I would recommend the Drumshee Chronicles as they are a bit more grown-up than the timeline series. I thought Treachery at Midnight was excellent and I am looking forward to getting the two new books when they come out.

Message:Hi Bridget
That was really interesting - it's like a film quite exotic for someone like me that lives in a boring small rainy city called Cork in the south of Ireland. What do I do? Well, not a lot - no guns no sharks. I do go swimming but it's just up and down a swimming pool. When the weather is warm I go swimming in Kerry and I like that because the waves are sometimes huge. What else do I do? Well, I go into the middle of the city and I meet my friends and we walk around and meet other girls from my school and we giggle and talk and send text messages.

Message:This is number 3 - the last entry!
I found Cora Harrison's website through my mom. It started when we were in a bookstore and my mom found The Viking at Drumshee for my brother. But he wanted an expensive book on dragons. My mom wouldn't get him the dragon book, but got him the Drumshee book anyway. Once he started reading it he wanted more! So when my mom was trying to find a Chrismas present for him, she came across the website, and showed me the story club.
Please write back!

Message:I live in a desert (not the sandy kind, the volcanic basalt kind). There are trees (mostly pine trees), and rivers, and huge mountains everywhere. Actually I live in one of the rockiest places in our country. There are places like Kansas where you can practically see all the way across the state because it's so flat.
I hear that in Ireland most people are Catholic, like my family. Where I live most people are Mormon, a religion that is truly American! Just as a completely unrelated fact, my brother's favorite food is buffalo jerky! That's probably truly American, too!

Message:Hi Claire:
I've never had anyone ask me questions like yours before. For me it's amazing to be able to communicate with someone in Ireland.
Well, you asked about me so basically I'm on the local Swim Team, I go scuba diving (in an indoor tank with sharks and piranhas) and target shooting with a friend (are people allowed to own guns where you live?), I'm going to help start a craft club with some friends of mine, and I do Greco-Roman wrestling a little bit. (Rulon Gardner, the Olympic wrestling champion, lives close to here.) More is coming. I didn't have enough room to put everything in at once.
