Questions and Answers

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

Hi Everybody!

Thanks so much for writing.  To Mallory, Lily, Eva, Stephanie, Samantha, Emy, Kylie, Sai, Nani, Sundus, Teresa, and everyone else who wrote: Thanks for all the great mail and all of the great questions.  

Here are some of your questions and some answers:

Question: Which is my favorite Mallory book?

Answer:  I like all of the Mallory books.  I’ve always liked reading series books.  When I find a character I like, I like to read about all of the different things that happen to that character.  Plus, it would be really hard to choose just one Mallory book.

Question: Will Joey and Mallory ever get together?

Answer:  Keep reading!

Question:  What is the next Mallory book and when is it coming out?

Answer:  The next Mallory book that is coming out this fall is called, Happy NewYear, Mallory!  Mallory’s camp friends come to Fern Falls for a winter reunion but something unexpected (and kind of scary!) happens to Mallory and the reunion does not turn out the way she had planned.

I hope that answers some of your questions.  Let me know if you have more!

Talk to you soon!

Hi Everybody!

I hope summer is off to a great start for all of you.  It is for me!  I was at Books & Books (my favorite book store anywhere!) on Miami Beach on Saturday to do a reading and signing of Red, White, and True Blue Mallory.  It was a lot of fun and so great to see everyone who came!Thanks to all of you who came from near and far!

Keep reading and have a great summer!

Talk to you soon!

Hi Everybody!

First things first . . . I want to thank all of you who keep writing in!  To Kylie, Steph, Sai, Nani, Sundus, Teresa, Julia, Katie, Stephanie, and Allison:  Thanks so much for all the great mail.  I love hearing from each and every one of you and I’m so glad that you like reading about Mallory.

Now, time for a few more things.

PODCASTS:  If you click on podcasts on the upper right-hand corner of my blog, you can hear an interview with me about my new book which is coming out this fall called Thanksgiving Rules!  It is a funny picture book about a boy who loves to eat on Thanksgiving.  I hope you will all read it.

BOOK SIGNINGS:  For those of you who live in Miami, I will be signing and reading from Red, White, and True Blue Mallory next Saturday, June 13 at 11 at Books & Books on Lincoln Road, South Beach.  I hope you can come!

SUMMER READING:  If you are looking for something fun to read this summer, check out the latest Mallory book, Red, White and True Blue Mallory or try Campfire Mallory.
