Thank you for your letter, Charlotte. I'm really pleased that you are enjoying the stories.
Lots of authors and publishers have said that it is often hard to say what age child a book is for but we do understand that children, parents, grandparents, and teachers, do like to have some idea.
Well, although my story starts with Tizzie, aged nearly eleven, and Louis, aged seven-and-three-quarters, later on they meet lots of older characters, such as Jack, aged 13, Masai (15), Hans (17) and so on. And, of course, there are lots of adult characters so I think it really depends on whether you like adventure stories in general, and this one in particular, rather than how old you are.
In answer to your question about more books, yes I am writing a new series. It is called Thirteen Things and is based on 13 real objects. Because the stories are inspired by objects, events, and characters from history, I think these books might also be read by all ages, including adults, but we'll have to wait and see!
Thank you very much again for writing to me, Charlotte.
