Raya on 27 March, 2017

Hi! I was wondering if I could get some tips on writing a novel. Mainly about description. I am terrible at it and need help. I want to describe places and characters, but I find it hard. Some tips would be great!

Hi Raya, this is what Cornelia tells about her writing process in general: "I think you have to have patience and collect ideas about something you're really passionate about. Characters you want to talk about and that readers would want to read abo...Read more

Chuck on 27 March, 2017

Me and my friend Jason want to publish a book. Do you have any advice for new writers? How do we make the story interesting? How do we make it longer? and how do we convince the publisher to publish our book even though we're kids.

Dear Chuck, collect ideas about something you're really passionate about. Characters you want to talk about and that readers would want to read about. Then collect ideas for places in the book — look at photos and books about different places for ...Read more

Bluejay Smith on 23 March, 2017

Hello, Cornelia! My name is Bluejay and I'm starting a book that I plan to publish in the future with my dad. But I can't seem to get it going, how do you finish a book, and not just give up?

Hi Bluejay , this is what Cornelia can tell you about her writing process: "I think you have to have patience and collect ideas about something you're really passionate about. Characters you want...Read more

I normally never remember author's names, I just tend to flit and float between different authors and read whatever I fancy and never return to them again. Your books are different for me though. The Thief Lord was a beautiful book, and I loved The Last Dragon, and really there's quite a lot of space on my bookshelves taken up by your books even though the rest of the children's books I once had have been packed away as I've moved into adult books with more depth. But regardless of what section of the bookstore your stuff nests in I always know it's the right books for my age, at any age- as you can never outgrow a need for hope and pluckiness and inspiration to fight battles with your friends by your side, whether your foes are gold plated former frogs or something a little more boring and adultish. Thank you for your books and inspiration!

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook, Kayle, and thank you so much for your beautiful entry Insa and Guesty

Hi Katherine, take a look HERE

Bella on 13 March, 2017

Hi! I'm a huge fan of the reckless books. I'm super curious to see where you are going to take the story, and I hope you publish the fourth soon!

Hi Cornelia, I'm a big fan of yours. Question: Do you plan to go to Mexico someday? Is that with us people who would die to see you. Please answer me. And I send you my best wishes. Thank you

Hi from Germany, it always depends on which librarians or event organizers invite Cornelia to do a reading or book signing.

topita on 11 March, 2017

Hi, I'm Mexican and a big fan of yours. Could you answer me please When will the next chat in Spanish? regards

Hola, Topita: Pues hacemos dos al mes. El siguiente tendrá lugar el domingo 26 de marzo a las 21h (hora de Madrid, España).

Chloe Green on 10 March, 2017

Dear Cornelia, I have always wondered whether you have thought to write a book about the actual story Inkheart within the Inkworld trilogy. I've always wondered how the characters were before they were ripped from there world. How Capricorn served his master and how Dustfinger was destined to die at the end of the book. I would really love to read about the way the inkworld characters were meant to be, before Meggie & Mo. Yours sincerely, a loving fan of your written words

Dear Chloe, fans keep asking Cornelia that question, but she can't write the "real" Inkheart. Fenoglio is the copyright holder Besides, his writing style is totally different from hers.

Liesel and Rosa on 9 March, 2017

You are an AMAZING author!! My friend and I LOVE your Inkheart book!! You're super creative and inspiring!! Expect to hear from us again !! Lots of love!!

Welcome to Cornelia's guestbook

Dennis on 5 March, 2017

Dear Cornelia, I've just read all three parts of "Reckless", It's AMAZING! I can't wait for the fourth part! And I want to know: why there is no film, based on this book? I think it could be great)

I currently do not allow a movie adaptation. After my experiences with 9 movie adaptations I think the novels are too complex for the big screen. Best from LA, Cornelia

Susanne Ramos Rodberg on 2 March, 2017

Dear Cornelia I would like to ask about Kobolds...What do the Kobolds measure? what do they eat? Walk erect or crouched?...

I guess you mean the Brownies, as the Kobolds are called in my German translations? They eat berries, nuts, mushrooms, and plants, but also some human foods they steal

Susanne Ramos Rodberg on 28 February, 2017

Hello again I am still doing and writing my project for my fantastic saga. But this will take a lot of work and time... My project inspire me on The Chronicles of Narnia, The Neverending Story, Voyage of the unicorn, Harry Potter and Dragon Rider... Protagonists for human children and adolescents: Ashley, Justin, Miranda and Erik, and later Benjamin "Ben", Lizzy and Ailey. I think this is it ... I hope you like it

Susanne Ramos Rodberg on 28 February, 2017

Dear Cornelia, I have finally put names for two griffins, Ash "Ceniza" and Farcon... I have also given names to two Kobolds, Grayskin and Ybra. A redheaded fairy named Fira and a female pegasus named Alisea...Do you like those names?...I hope you like it

I'm sure, Cornelia likes them very much, Susanne

Nathan on 26 February, 2017

Hi cornelia i have read your ghost hunter series and i would like to know where"fun stuff" is on your website so i can test that game.

Hi Nathan, I guess that's an extra the publishing company edited to your edition, so you should contact them about this. Warmest wishes from Germany, Insa and Guesty

Susanne Ramos Rodberg on 25 February, 2017

Hi Cornelia I'm looking for names for a griffin for my saga that I'm doing and I don't know what name I can put...You know a name for my griffin? ... A greeting from susan

Hi Susanne, Cornelia often searches for names by browsing different encyclopedias of plants and animals. Maybe you will find some beautiful names there as well
