The Joy of Fan Mail

I received an email from a young writer friend:

It has been a while since I last read your book, but I finally got the chance to read The Veil of Magic series cover to cover and I LOVED it!!!  I loved them so much that I wish there were more in the series.

This is exactly what a writer likes to hear!

Fan Mail

I’ve been getting fan mail.

I really enjoy hearing from kids. I love to write because I love the process of writing (well, most of the time). But I’ve also discovered the great pleasure of writing books kids enjoy. The only way I know that they enjoy my stories is when I get to talk to them, or when they write to me.

Sometimes they write to Griffith, the fictional wizard who owns the magic shop at Then I have fun answering from him, or for him. The kids seem to have no trouble playing along. (That’s why I love writing for kids!)
