    Hey Cathy!
    I literally love all your books!
    But anyway I really like this guy and we've been friends for years and I know he doesn't feel the same. Everybody else thinks he does and they think we should go out. but I know he does feel the same. To be honest I'm not sure how I feel.
    What do I do?
    Do I tell him?
    Any advice?
    I hop you can help me. And letters to Cathy was brilliant!

  • Verity, age 12

    Your books are amazing (I am not going to spotlight one because they are all amazing). Where did you get your ideas from? They are fantastic! When did you suddenly decide that you wanted to be an author? Was it because you had talent? Everybody had=s different talents and multiple, but what made you choose writing?

    Love Verity s Dream

    Hi Cathy!
    My twin and I are big fans of the series, The Chocolate Box Girls. This is actually a question that I really don't want unanswered! One day when I was walking at High Cliff Beach, I looked around at all the big houses around me. Then I saw one house that caught my eye. A big house with a gravel and stone pathway. The house had a sign saying... Tanglewood (and two numbers) MY TWIN AND I WERE SO SHOCKED. Just to mention we were near the woods walking to a beach. I couldn't believe it. Even better, on our way back home, I saw this cool path that led into the forest. My grandpa said it led to a caravan site. I'm pretty sure that there aren't 5 girls in the house with the last name of Tanberry. But my grandma said Tanglewood isn't a common house name, and with all of the signs that follow the books description of Tanglewood, I couldn't help believing that you have some connection to this house. So I want to ask, do you know anything about a real Tanglewood house. Is the house based on any house in real life? Please email me back the answer since where I live I won't find the book, Letters to Cathy easily. Please reply soon!

    Hey Cathy! I started reading your books when I was about 9 and I love them. My favourite of all time has to be Summer's Dream. I really felt connected to her and even felt quite emotional for her. I was very upset that she didn't get to achieve her dream, so when I recently read your short story about Ash, I was very excited to hear that Summer was going then after all. I've decided to write a fan fiction about that. Does anyone know any good websites?

    Hey Cathy! In school,two of my best friends (Who don't like each other and are complete opposites!) are ALWAYS arguing and i'm always in the middle of it all:( It's really irritating but how do i make peace between them!

    P.S I really love reading your books. They are so awesome and I have ALL of them stacked on my bookshelf. I've read all of them at least twice;) <3

    From Katie.

    Dear Cathy,
    I absolutely love reading books. I especially love reading books before I go to bed. If I don't understand a word I make a note of it and when I have finished reading I always search it up on the internet. Surprisingly, I think the girl I am most like in the chocolate is probably Honey. If you asked my parents how much of a drama queen they would be having a huge list.
    I am planning to get a collection of your books.
    Please make loads of them.
    I will be saving up my money.
    From Hannah
    (I met you at Bullers Wood School)

Hello planet!

Coco here! I’m afraid on top of ALL of the worlds other problems (global warming, saving the pandas…

I could go on!) we’ve also been having a few problems with spam comments – it’s probably just my mental sisters messing about…

But ANYWAY, to post your comment, simply put my first name (Coco) in the box below!

Lots of love,


Please wait...
