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!

  3. I love your books! I love lots of teen writers but I’ve voted for you on the Queen of Teen. I have found that your books have inspired me, especially Gingersnaps (I love the fox, it sounds cute)as it is kind of like me, I ditched these girls that were using me. Now I have 3 BFFs, Gina, Tazzy and Lauren! Luvs ya if ur reading this. So thanks for letting me know I’m not the only girl who had to stand being called a freak, who has weight issues and was used. Best wishes. xxx

  6. hi thanks for agreeing with me and i agree with you Emma cathys books are really important. as i found out people can fall back on them and find some confidence in them as i did i was having a really hard time at school and i started reading cathys books and found i had a connection with the charaters (that probably sounds really wierd) But its true.

  7. Azaria, when you’re like me it does not sound weird. Books are 30% of my life and a good author like Cathy Cassidy can make that book a vertual reality. I know how you feel and I sooo get what you’re saying! I especially had a connection with Ginger in Gingersnaps(I am fat, I’m teased and most people use me) and thanks to Cathy I changed that, I lost a little weight, made new friends and ditched the users and people now respect my high grades as I’m, not a C crowder any more.
    best wishes
