I'm halfway through "WTF" and its like the best book I've ever read !! I'm really excited to find out what happens next that I literally cannot put it down. My friend Rachael Noven suggested me the book and I'm glad she did. Are there any sequels to WTF ? Will their ever be ? Or are there anymore of your books like it ? Thanks !

Thanks, Brooke -- I'm really glad you're enjoying the book, and thanks for your interest in other projects! Keep an eye on the "News/Book News" section of my site for upcoming books. Got to run; I'm heading for a gathering of Simon & Schuster writers and editors. Who knows? Maybe we'll come up with some new ideas there!

(1) Don't give up. Keep trying, a little bit each day. (2) Join a professional group that will have people who can read your work and give you advice. If you're writing a YA book, you can join the SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). Their site is (3) Be sure to read writers who inspire you. Ask "What is it about this person's writing that makes me want to keep on reading?" What kinds of words does this person use? What words does he or she NOT use? What makes the idea fly off the page? What about the characters/plot/setting/etc. keeps you interested. Steal from the best! (4) Keep trying. Did I say that already?

Hello! Im 13 years old and I think your "wtf" book is AMAZING! Its truly the best book i have ever read (: I took it to school and the cover was so cool that my friends took it and read the first few pages and they are HOOKED! They want to read it after me, so i have 3 people waiting in line. I was reading it in bed and i though 'after this chapter i will go to sleep' but then you left it with such a good cliffhanger that i had to read another chapter! Well nayway, keep up the AWESOME writing coz i would love to see more! Thanks for the awesome books 😛

That's great, Sara! Keep it up. I hope to see your name in print someday!
I thought you were great! You visited Plum Valley and I was there. I was the one that was the friend of the one that went crazy over you. He was the one that when you shook his hand, he told nobody to touch it. Well, anyway, I really like your books. They are really neat. Bye!
