    Hi. Ms. Friedman,

    I am in the 3rd grade and I love your books. My favorie is Happy Birthday Mallory. Now I am reading Mallory vs. Max. I also write stories with my dad. The stories are about a snail named “Pail”. Whenever Pail gets scared he faints. Will you ever have a booksigning in New Jersey? That is where I live.

    Thanks - Your Fan Maddie

    Thanks for all the great letters.

    To Maddie: I was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas in 1964.

    To Lisa: I have always loved writing and have been doing it since I awas a young girl. I usually find inspiration in the every day things that go on around me. I don’t have any plans to come to California right now, but I would love to. It is one of my favorite places to visit!

    Molly: I am so glad you like the books. I don’t have any plans to write a Christmas book, but I did write a book called Happy New Year, Mallory. It is coming out next year.

    Maddie: Pail sounds great. Unfortunaley, I don’t have any plans to come to New Jersey right now. I will keep posting my travel plans so please be on the lookout.

    Tori: The “B” stans for Baim which was my last name before I got married.

    Thanks so much for all being such great fans!
    keep reading and writing,

    Heeey. Im only just starting to read your books. They are very cool so far. I have noticed in the books its all about Mallory like she wants it to be just perfrect for her. But im not sure if you are trying to make it like that but yeah.
    I wanted to know for my book report where do you usually write your books like in your room or somewhere ?
