Message:How lovely to hear from you, Taiane.

And I had nearly forgotten about that book. You must tell me how you think it translated. I had lots of messages from the translator quite a few years ago asking for explanations of some of the expressions I used, particularly the 18th century expressions. She seemed very nice and very intelligent.
Do keep in touch.. I love to hear from you.

Message:well, I'd really love to do a third one, and about Rose, who is my favourite of the sisters.

However, and now you know what I'm going to say, publishers don't print books to please writers, they print books to sell thousands of copies, and Macmillan are not convinced that they will sell thousands of copies of a third 'Debutantes' book.
And so...

Message:I think I know the answer to this, but I have to ask anyway. I've been thinking about the Debutante series which I read a few years ago, and completely LOVED. I'm thinking about re-reading them, but what I'd really love is a third book. Is there any chance at all you'd write a third, perhaps focusing on Rose?

Message:You know, Silber, you fill me with enthusiasm for doing some more of these books. I am a great enthusiast for Dickens and his stories of Victorian London and his books, especially Oliver Twist, inspired me to write about my own 'Fagin's Gang'.

I think that I will have a chat with my agent on Monday about the possibility of doing another set of these books. I did so enjoy writing them and lots of kids have told me that they enjoyed reading them. In fact, they won some prizes where the judges were children - always the most worth-while awards, in my view.
Thank you so much for going to the trouble of writing.

Message:Hello, dear Mrs. Harrison,
yes, I read them in English. I like the language a lot. Unfortunately they are not translated into german. It would be a shame if you would not continue such a fantastic and very thrilling series. I keep my fingers crossed for you, that you found very soon a new publisher for Alfie and his wonderful gang. Every book was like being part of the gang and I had the luck to read all six books in a row last year. But now I am out of this great stuff and that is the reason why I asked you. And do you have already ideas for the next books? I know, you write a lot of books, but please, find some time for Alfie. I like the way you describe the time and all the small informations about daily life back then.

Message:thank you for writing, Silber. I'm delighted that you liked the books. Did you read them in English?

Yes, I'd love to write some more, but the original publisher went out of business. So I must look for another publisher.

By the way, did you read them in English, or were they translated into German?

And I must say that you write excellent English!

Message:Hello, dear Mrs. Harrison,

I am from Germany and a huge fan of your London Murder Mysteries series. I read all six books in the series and I really want to know when you finally have the next books written and published for everyone who likes these books like me. I always ask myself what will happen with Alfie and the gang. It would be very kind of you to answer my question and I really hope for some good news.

Message:Thank you, 3rd class St. Conaire's Shannon, Co. Clare!

I remember coming to your school, long ago, when I wasn't so old as I am now.

I remember telling the children how I got the idea for 'Nuala & Her Secret Wolf'

It was the middle of the night... not a dark, dark night, but a night full of silver moonshine. My Alsatian dog (looked a little like a wolf) wanted to go out and I took her up to the ancient iron age fort on our land.

And while we stood there, I noticed, with a shiver of fear, that my dog was growling, very quietly, almost under breath.
And that all the hairs on the back of her neck, and right down her back, all the hair was standing on end....

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.

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
