    Hi Amy,
    I think my customer Liga contacted you about a possible booksigning/appearance in Bridgton. I didn’t realize you have a New Little Beaver book out. How exciting! Let me know if you have any interest in coming over. Thanks,

    I have to make a time line and can’t find anything with dates about you. Could you help. I saw you a few years ago at young authors at UMPI. i’m a huge fan, and I am still writing like you said 🙂

      Hi, Jess. How lovely that you are still writing. I remember the UMPI Young Authors visit very clearly. So glad it inspired you to keep writing. If you go to the About tab and click on “for Kids,” there is a timeline.

      • Jess

        Thank you soo much. You inspired me to keep writing and take extra English. I am taking honors, and that is what the time line is for thanks 🙂

  3. Hi Amy! I am a fellow children’s book writer and I am wondering if you could offer any advice to help me get into making school visits?

  4. Hello Amy! I have just relocated to La Jolla Ca from Falmouth Maine. I am having an idea to start a very important book called “Bullies can be anywhere, even in your house” It will be to educate families about what to do if they encounter these abuse problems and to put it in perspective. It can be groups of people lying about you.. or just one as well. But mostly people are good and how can we work with these groups such as Project Sarah at Jewish Family Services has helped me. I have so many ideas on this and how it should be a book in every child’s book list! As Project Sarah says it is not your fault and there are tons of people who care about you. My children grew up with your wonderful charming books so I am thinking how nice this would be. Yes I am the one developing

      Hi, Carolyn. I grew up in Beverly MA so we have been neighbors for a while. Thanks for your comment and the description of your book project. Good luck with it–it sounds interesting.

    We’re moving house and I just unearthed my copy of “A very Young Housewife”, which I’d forgotten I even owned. Brilliant, laugh-out-loud satire. The breakfast photos are just hilarious. I’m laughing as a I type.

    For what it’s worth, my wife goes out to work and I raise the kids and get “dishpan hands”. So a generation on, things have changed for the better, a little…..

    Anyway, it was an inspired piece of work. Well done.

      Dear Austen,
      Thanks for getting in touch and your kind comments about Very Young Housewife. I hope you get help for your dishpan hands! Some Dammitol works well, I understand! 🙂
