How to Contact Me

Please read this before emailing!

Is it all right if I email you?
Totally! I love hearing from readers—that’s one of the awesome things about being a writer today. Still, it can be overwhelming at times. If you have questions about movies, book release dates, my background, etc. please review the info on the webpage first, especially the Frequently Asked Questions, because you’ll often find the answer there. That will help me meet my other deadlines!

Can I send you my writing to read?
I’m sorry, but no. I cannot read unpublished work, and will delete it unread if you send it. That includes your story ideas and outlines. I get deluged with requests, and I want to avoid any misunderstandings. I do offer considerable help to writers on my Help for Writers page. For more information, read these two blog posts.

Can I interview you for my school project/book report?
Can I send you a questionnaire for my school project?

I’m sorry, but no. As a former teacher, I used to respond to all of those individually, but found it was taking hours a day at certain times of the year. Many of the questions are the same, so I have posted answers to frequently asked school project questions, and I hope that’s helpful!!

If you’re working on a book report, you’ll find resources specific to each book under the individual book listing.

Warning: you can snail mail me at one of the addresses below, but, fair warning: I’m very sketchy about answering snail mail. It takes FOREVER to get to me and then it sits in a little pile. Even if your teacher wants you to snail mail a letter to me, ask if you can write it in a formal manner and then paste it into the body of an email (no attachments).

Business-related correspondence (rights inquiries, requests for blurbs, etc.) should be sent to:
