Message:River-Ocean: A nice compromise might be to aim at journalism. How is your English (from a teacher's point of view)? I remember when I was your age my mother wanted me to go for a job in a bank - which didn't make much sense as I never could add up - or even count reliably.

Niamh: A good idea for writing a story is to think of a person - really imagine him or her - and then give that person a problem - in the working out of the problem the story will have a good beginning, middle and ending.

Message:I am sorry for not making anything clear to you. I am fifteen years old and as long as I remember, I have wanted to be a writer but I fear that maybe I am not good enough to be a writer and just be somebody who I am not.
I hope this helps you answer my questions. Sorry for the bother.

Message:I haven't really answered all of your questions because it's difficult to know what to say when I don't know how old you are and what options are open to you.
I'd love a few more details and then will do my best.

Message:It was until I was about fourteen or fifteen - then I settled into school and inot passing examinations - then I went to university and got my degree - got a job at Linguaphone (language teaching by the direct method) then I married, had two children, then I started teaching, then I became a headteacher and then I retired.

And finally I started to write books!

Message:Hey Cora!!! i just read your book "I was Jane Austen's best friend" and i have to say i thought it was fabulous! i mean i could almost imagine everything you said in my head and almost making it into a movie. i just like to ask a few questions:
1) Was being an author your long life dream?
2) what inspired you?
3) Did anybody else encourage you to do something else than writing?
i'm sorry but i have always enjoyed writing and i don't know what to do because certain people in my life want me to be something else which i am not good at.......what would you do in my situation? i just wants some advice and talk to somebody who really understands what i am going through!!!
Sorry about the questions!
i hope you write more boo

Message:I'm actually delighted that you like Poppy the best because you are the very first person, including reviewers, that has said that.
i'm pleased because book 2, which I am just finishing off, is much more about Poppy. She and Daisy share the narration.

Message:Dear Cora Harrison,

It's Molly again. I read Debutantes, and I love it. I think I like Poppy best, though I like everyone. I can't wait for the next book.

I love writing stories-none of them are very good, but I still write them.

From Molly

Message:Taiane: It was years before I knew really what sprigged muslin is - though I liked the sound of the words. Muslin is a very fine, soft cotton, imported from India and the 'sprigged' bit means that it had tiny flowers, often of the same colour as the muslin, embroidered (stitched) on to it.

Message:Oi, Cora! Eu não achei uma tradução para "sprigged", só para "muslin", que é "musselina".

Message:I loved your school, too, Mary & Caoimhe. In fact, as I type this, I am looking at the lovely picture of the glens that you presented me with. It reminds me of a very happy day last year in the sunlit glens of Antrim.

Message:I missed you, too, Taiane. I'm so sorry that 'Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend' was not translated into Portuguese. I think that you should try it in English - I find reading a book in a foreign language is very good for your knowledge of that language and you already know all the names of the main characters. I wonder how 'sprigged muslin' - the cloth that Jenny's first ball dress was made from - is expressed in Portuguese. Could you find it and write it down for me?
P.S. I loved your video on the Macmillan 'MYKINDABOOK websit.

Message:Hey, Cora! How are you? I miss you :)
I'm so sorry for don't send you messages anymore, but I'll try. I lent the book "I was Jane Austen best friend" to my friend and she loved it! I'll read it again because I really loved it too. I love Jenny and Jane!
Kisses,
Taiane.
