Your Name: keira p.

Subject: more books?

Message: dear erica, do you have any more books for 9 year olds?

i have read a few of your books, and here are the titles: When life gives you O.J.,and Aces wild.

i thought they were AWSOME!!!!! i loved 'em! so i was wondering, maybe you could write 

another book about Zelly and Ace? or more books for 9 year olds? 

you don't have to it's just a suggestion, 'cause you're the author.

Thank you for your books!


3rd grade

Dear Keira,

Thanks so much for your email.  It made me so happy to hear that you've read and enjoyed both WHEN LIFE GIVES YOU O.J. and ACES WILD!  I have exciting news for you:  I am working on a new book that I think will be great for 9 year olds.  Hopefully, it will also be excellent for 11 or 12 year olds, because the way things work, even if I finish writing it in 2014 (which is one of my New Year's resolutions, along with drinking more water), it won't come out for a few years.  I would suggest that, in the meantime, you read lots of other great books and maybe even write one yourself -- after all, who knows more about 9 year olds than a 9 year old?

Best wishes,
