    Dear Eleanor,

    My daughter loves books. You came to her school (St Margaret’s Bushey), she has now bought and read all your stories. You’ve inspired her! She has a letter she’d like to send to you – is there anyway to do this, please?

      Hi, thanks so much for your comment. It’s wonderful to hear that your daughter’s enjoyed my books! I’d love to receive a letter from her. I’m currently in the middle of moving house so the best way to write to me is through my publishers: Quercus Children’s Books, 55 Baker Street, 7th Floor, South Block, London, W1U 8EW. Thanks! Eleanor x

        Hi this is Mukhtar. My school was part of the Fantastic Book Awards Club last term. When reading you r book we loved it and so made you the winner. When getting the award, we also gave you some letters from us. We were wondering if you would send us letters back soon as we have eagerly been waiting for your reply. Thankyou. May be cheeky but could you send books too

    Your books are amazing. My 8 year old “found” your books, he is hooked on them and will spend all day reading them if I let him. I have introduced his older brother (who puts up a fight very time I ask him to red anything) and he too is now hooked on the Sammy Feral books. Your books have improved his reading and inference majorly, so thank you for that. Is your other series The Blue Lady for girls or boys??
    Thanks again. Deb

      Hi Deb, thank you so much for your message – it’s always wonderful to hear that people are enjoying my books! The Blue Lasy and The Grey Girl are for slightly older readers, and are a lot scarier than Sammy Feral. I’d hope boys and girls can enjoy them, but they would probably appeal to girls more. However I have just launched a new series called Felix Frost Time Detective, which will appeal to fans of Sammy Feral – hopefully these will go down well in your house too! X

    Eleanor,
    My family came across your Sammy Feral series, in the ‘Nudged’ audiobooks from our library. Steve Perring narrated them perfectly. All of my boys, (aged 5, 7 & 8) loved the books. They really are fantastic and I am telling everyone that I know. As a parent, I am always on the lookout for books that appeal to young boys, without being utterly disgusting. Thanks from a mother and a primary school teacher, they are truly captivating stories. We hope there are more!

      Hi Amanda,
      Thank you for your message and sorry about the tardy reply (I’m currently on maternity leave!). I love hearing that boys especially are enjoying my books. There are five Sammy Feral books (Sammy Feral’s Diaries of Weird, Yeti Rescue, Hell Hound Curse, Dragon Gold and Vampire Attack). I’ve also written two books in the Felix Frost Time Detective series (Roman Riddle and Ghost Plane), which your children might also enjoy reading!

    Thanks so much, like how I e-mailed you, spooky, interesting( like the books you wrote called the grey girl and blue lady)
    Please can you tell me whenever you will do a talk and as my teacher usually tells me to do when I write to my favourite author, please can you add a character called Zoey or whatever you want, who tries to help Suzy, like Frankie ( can she come back to?) There is so much to talk about, you are so inspiring and such a good writer, (I may keep going on about this, sorry but,) seriously , you really have inspired me to write brilliantly really . I am writing this here at my bed time, goodnight!

    Many thanks,

    Darcey.🤗
