Hi Everybody!

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all of you who have written in lately.  To Lexie, Anindita, Amanda, Bari, Meitav, Marni, Kyjah, Parmeda, Maria, Victoria, Molly and Maame:  Thanks for all the great comments and questions!  

Some of you asked what the newest book is that is out.  It is called Red, White, and True Blue Mallory and it is about Mallory’s class trip to Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. is a super cool place and I hope you will all read the book.

Some of you asked if I am working on a new book and the answer to that is yes!  I am working on a book called Mallory and Mary Ann.  It is all about Mallory and her best friend.  Sometimes even the best of friends have trouble getting along.

Some of you asked if I will write a series about Winnie.  The answer to that is that I am thinking about.  If you think it is a good idea, let me know.

Last but not least, some of you told me that you’d like to grow up and become a writer and asked if I have any advice on that topic, and of course, I do!  The best thing you can do if you want to be a good writer is to be a good reader.   I read all of the time.  Of course, working on your creative writing skills helps too!

I’m so glad you all wrote to me and that you’re enjoying the Mallory books!

Talk to you soon!

Laurie Friedman

    Dear Laurie,
    Hello! I was just wondering if you are planning on writing the mallory series when she is a teenager? I think you should, but you are very smart and famous so i’m sure you know if you should or not. May i make another suggestion? I think that you should write a “mallory” book but make joey fall in love with mallory or make a halloween mallory book! That would be SWIZZLE(i made that word up it means: Cool, Sweet, Awesome and so on)!!!!Thank You very much!!!! : ) please write back!
    Thank you,
    Emily : )
