Looking forward to hearing from you!
hi rabecca i am doing a school project on the spin and we have to do some research on the auther and i was wonder ing if you would answer two questions please.
1] what are some of your interests in life
2] dose any part of the spin relate to your life
thank you i would be sooooo hapy if you could answer these questions:]
I’ve only just found your comment. I don’t know why or how, but it didn’t show up before. I think I replied to someone at Roedean School before and maybe got confused.
My interests are: reading, gardening, eating chocolate and caring for orphaned flying horses. Also I keep fit with pilates and yoga and tennis.
No part of The Spin relates to my life directly. But of course I draw on real life for my stories as well as making things up. I had a horse once and all the spitfyre riding bits in the book I thought back to those times.
My favourite book is Great Expectations and I did use the plot from this wonderful book as a skeleton to work on for my book.
Please reply to let me know you’ve got this.
Hi, I’ve read your book ‘The Spin’, and it’s great. It’s so unexpected when you find out that the grubbin is the benefactor and the Director’s brother. I was also quite surprised when I found out that Araminta didn’t actually like Stormy.

Hi there Tanya, lovely to hear from you! I’m so glad you enjoyed THE SPIN. It is meant to be a surprise and a twist when you find out the real name of the grubbin. The lesson there is to always be kind to everyone because you never know what they might do for you in return. The Director is a really nasty chap and capable of anything.
I’m pleased that you didn’t realise Araminta was two-faced – it makes a character more horrible when you see that they are capable of pretence and lies. Poor Stormy is very gullible. I liked writing about Stormy and having him develop and grow braver and stronger.
Best wishes and happy reading!
I am enjoying reading the Spin but I am puzzled as to what a grubbing is?
If you keep on reading THE SPIN you will soon find out what a grubbin is… I hope you enjoy the book. Let me know.
hi rebecca! i’m doing some book review for my english subject, so i’ve came here to ask you some question about your book–CRYSTAL,
can you curtly tell me about the story ?
Hi Johnson, I wrote Crystal because I wanted to write another Frozen World title. I’d already written about a girl who was half wood, one about a ‘stone’ girl and so the next had to be ‘water’. Near where I live there is a very circular pond – I think it was originally built for cattle to get water, now it’s used by hot dogs in the summer for swimming. But it’s quite spooky and I imagined being able to go through it into another world.
When you do write your book review – and thanks for choosing CRYSTAL – you should maybe discuss what it was about it that you liked. Was it the characters or the setting or the plot mainly? Did you find it exciting and if so, why?
Thanks for being in touch, happy reading,
Hello, which book are you reading, Gemma? I’d love to know if you enjoy it.
I’m trying hard to finish a book at the moment, writing, not reading, and it’s taking ages. I’m just pulling it all apart and starting again.
Did you enter the Easter Post Card competition? I’m looking forward to seeing all the places everyone has been.
Do let me know what you think of my book when you’ve finished it.
Oooh! What book are you writing!!!!!!! Please tell me.
I emailed you.
I’m writing a futuristic novel at the moment about genetic engineering! Also a couple of picture books – well they are just ideas at the moment, nothing definite. Which book did you read? Did you enjoy it? I hope so.
