Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Lovely to hear from my favourite school.

And I am delighted to know that you liked one of my Drumshee books.

I wonder whether you might like to read 'Drumshee Rebels' next. That takes place after 'Titanic' and has Mike & Maggie MacMahon in it.

Let me know if you have any questions. It's a pleasure to hear from you.

Message:Hello Cora,
We have just finished reading Titanic Voyage from Drumshee and we had to tell you how much we LOVED it. It has been our favourite book we have read this year. Our teacher is from Clare and he is happy that we are reading about his county too. We look forward to reading more of your books next year. Any suggestions as to what we should read next?
Thanks so much and we hope you are keeping well.
Third Class, MNS

Message:How are you, Taiane? Every time I hear something about Brazil I think of you.

At the moment I am writing a book set in the time of King Henry VIII of England and so am reading lots of books about him and the time he lived in. The more I know, the more I want to know. I find myself looking up books to find out how much he paid his cook etc.

How are you?
Long time since last message I sent to you. I wish I had not stopped talking about books with you. It was one of the best parts of my day.

Message:Yes I have, I really like how there is a slight twist and the mystery is much deeper than the league itself.

Message:the Hound of the Baskervilles is brilliant.

Have you read 'The Red-headed League'? That is very clever.

Message:Hi Cora,
I wrote a while back. In answer to your questions: I haven't been able to read Body in the Fog (somehow it didn't get seen on my Christmas wishlist) but I'm looking forward to reading it and I come from the UK. Recently I've been reading some Sherlock Holmes stories and I was wondering if you liked them too?

Message:just the sort of message I love to get!
I chose to write about an Iron Age girl because we have an Iron Age fort behind our cottage.
I began the series in 1997 and went on until I had written 17 books.
If I could change anything I would make Nuala a much longer book.
This was a retirement project, but now I have had fifty books published.
Of the Drumshee series I think Drumshee Castle is my favourite. I began it when I found some stones from a castle up in our fort and I set it in the time of Queen Elizabeth I as that is a favourite time in history for me.
Thanks for the great questions.

Message:Hello Cora,

We're a 4th class from Co. Wicklow and we read your book Nuala and Her Secret Wolf as our class novel. We really enjoyed reading it and we came up with a few questions.
Why did you choose Nuala to write about?
Why did you write about the Iron Age?
How long ago did you start writing the Drumshee series?
If you could change anything in the book, what would you change?
How many books have you written?
What was your favourite book to write?

Thank you

Message:I think that I would love to do Rose. As I am a writer and she was a writer I would have more in common with her - I am not particularly good at dressmaking or clothes designing, and I'm certainly no good at playing music.

Message:I just read the message board:P and saw that if you were to do a third Debutantes book, it may be on Rose. I think it would be great to have a book from her point of view!!, as you have touched on the other sister's views:)

Message:Hi Cora:)
Is there any chance of you writing a third book in the Debutantes series??

Name: Cora Harrison
Message:Well, from the point of view of an author, I get 25% of the cost of every e-book sold and I get 10% of the cost of every hardback sold and only 7.5% of every paperback sold so from the point of view of an author I think they are a good thing.

From the point of view of a reader, I like e books for light fiction, but prefer 'real' books for non-fiction and for books that I treasure.

Hope this is a help.
