Hi. I love your Peter Pan story (I still have yet to read your other books). And I just wanted to ask if you could give me any advice to be a good writer like yourself. It's my dream to be an author one day so I was hoping maybe you could give me a few tips. Thank you!
Hi Guys! I'm writing fairy tales. A LOT of fairy tales and I'll be writing them very fast for my publisher StoneHouse Ink. I'll be posting the rough drafts up here as I write them, to give you all a chance to see what they're about. Then I have to take them down once they're published, be sure to read quick! So... if you like fairy tales and magical memories, then I suggest you snuggle back in a comfy chair and enjoy! :) If you haven't checked out my totally cool Free writing secrets class...

Hey hi yeah I can't speak to other people publicly AT ALL so hah I will try. So I just wanted to say I have actually bought three of you Faerie Tale collection and I am going to be reading them very soon! You are an amazing writer and when I was at Desret Book I saw like literally all of your books there and I nearly bought all of them xD but I wasn't able to so I will actually be planning on reading the rest of your books after I buy the paper back version!
Can I just say that I think what you are doing is a wonderful thing? I know a lot of authors would rather sign over their own soul than allow readers to read their work for free, so I just wanted to say that I really appreciate it. I have so enjoyed reading your fairytale collection over the past two years, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to tell you so. It is very inspiring to see that a published author would still think of the readers that love their book first and their next paycheck second. I can only hope that should I ever be faced with the same choice, that I will make a similar decision. All in all, thank you. You have no idea the impact your writing has had on my life.
I actually first encountered your books on my kindle. I've bought quite some and one of my favourites has to be pride and popularity, which I've re-read probably over 50 times!! All in all, i just want to say a big THANK YOU, for writing these stories and books and sharing you gift of writing with the world. Sincerely, A HUGE fan :) xxx
