Answers to your questions

Hi Everybody!

So many of you have been writing in with so many good questions and here are some answers.

Payjeeb is doing a book report and asked if I could provide some personal information for her report.    Payjeeb, I hope this helps!

I was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas.  I grew up in Arkansas and from there I lived in a lot of great places including New Orleans, Paris, Houston, and New York City.   I now live in Miami (which I love!) with my family and my dog (a fluffy white bichon) Ollie.  I love to run, cook, see movies with my kids, read, and write. 

Rachel wrote to ask me how many Mallory books there will be?  The answer to that question is 16.  So far, there are 9 books that are out and book #10 is coming out this fall.  It is called Step Fourth, Mallory.  Mallory is going to 4th grade!  There are lots of fun things in store for her and I hope you’ll all keep reading!

That’s it for now.

Talk to you soon!

    Thank you for answering my question! It’s so, so, so cool that you mentioned my name. I have a suggestion for a book: How about one called Happy Holidays, Mallory! It could be about Christmas time, ’cause who doesn’t love Christmas?

    Hi Laurie,

    I am Rachel from Singapore(which is in Asia) and I absolutely love love love the Mallory Series! I came across the first book when I was 9 and I’ve been reading them ever since. It has already been 3 years! :D Thank you for reading this little message. I really really really appreciate it. Hope you continue to write more wonderful books for the world! I cannot wait for the next Mallory book!

    Love, Rachel :)

    Hi, I am a 9 year old girl who is a fan of Mallory books and just read your Campfire Mallory book. I am also a HUGE fan of horses and I own one right now. I am trying to diside about the summer to see if I want to go to a horse camp or stay here with my horse.I have to know by Monday! My friend is also going to camp and we would be room-ates! This might be the last summer my friend is going to this camp. I would like to have fun with my friend,but also would like to stay with my horse. Just to tell you the camp is a whole 3 weeks! Please email me back VERY soon about your ideas! Thanks!

    To LoveOfaUnicorn,
    I am so glad you like the Mallory books and I horses. I love horses too and had one as well when I was your age. Wow! You have a tough choice to make about this summer. Both things sound like fun and I know you will make a good decision.
    Good luck and let me know what you decide!

  9. Laurie Says:

    Dear Alena and Ailana,
    Thanks for writing! Your names sound a lot alike.

    Here are some answers to your questions:

    Alena, I have two kids, Miami is in Florida, and there will be 16 Mallory books. Right now, I’m working on number 13. I write them about a year before they come out in stores and libraries.

    Ailana, I lived in an area of Paris called Montparnasse.

    I hope you both have a great day.
    Thanks again for writing!
    Laurie
