I had the coolest email this week, from a girl thanking me for the books, and for writing back to her when she emails… and it got me thinking. We don’t say thank you often enough! So let’s do something about it….

Here is Emma’s email, which started me thinking….

Thanks Cathy for writing to me the way you do. You’re an international writer who has loads of fans and yet you still take time to write back to each one of us personally. You answer our questions and help us out. I know no other author who does that so thanks!
And thanks, too, because your books are so inspirational. They help me understand and believe and want to stand up for myself! Thanks, Cathy!

So… who would I say thanks to? Lot of people, for lots of things!!!!

A big THANKS to my fab family, for putting up with me… to my friends… to all the fab crew at Puffin books & also to my agent, for making my dreams come true… to my writer-gal pals, Fiona Gibson, Lisa Clark, Magi Gibson & Meg Rosoff, for patience, laughs & understanding… to Fluffy Puffin, for everything… to Kitty’s Tearoom, for having the best cake in the known universe… to the cool kids who came to the EDINBURGH BOOK FEST recently, to see me…. to everyone who emails me with feedback & support… everyone who voted for me in Queen of Teen… to Daisy & Kelpie (dogs), Midnight & Snowy (rabbits) & Lily, Pickle & Pepper (cats) for letting me stroke them… to llamas, for existing… and lots, lots more. Including Emma N, for giving me the cool idea for this blog!

What would YOU say thanks for? Let me know in the box below… keep your comments short, & I’ll post the best online!

  2. Hey Cathy, I’m 12 and I think that you’re books are absolutely AMAZING! Are there any movies? I hope there are! I’ve read Scarlett, Driftwood and I’ve nearly finished Sundae Girl! In school, we read the Machine Gunners and had to make an air raid story and in mine-the neighbour’s dog was called Toto! Every year, for the year 7’s, there is a free book thing, where yyou can choose a book which they give you for free and they have a serlection-and, unfortunately, last year, when I was in year 7, they didn’t have this book, but this year, they had Scarlett! My friend in year 7 chose that book!
    I would like you’re opinion on my english…..PLEASE check out a poem I wrote-you can find it if you type up Isobel Jane Fasey on google! Maybe when you send an email back to me I could send you my air raid story!
    Keep writing amazing stories!

  4. Hi…just wanna say thanks to Cathy for the great books, and just like Emma says, actually answering back! Your books are great and if there was one or two books that should be turned into a film or TV series, it definately has to be between Driftwood and Sundae Girl. I look forward to reading Angel Cakes and Daisy Star, cos even when I’m down, your books seem to cheer me up. So Thanks alot. Oh yeah…and when your write, your kids must have some serious fun helping you with the characters (ONE WORD – JOEY!)
