    Hi Kelly! Im Easha- from Birmingham, England. Im 11 years old.
    I am SUCH a big fan of your books- especially Half a Sister. I just love how it is full of detail, suspense and drama. I bit my nails down reading it! But ALL of your books are fantastic and creates an impeccable image in your head. I wonder how you come up with these things! Never stop- Easha Haroon

  12. Sue says:

    Hi Kelly I made a poem which is about a butterfly and I hope u really like it! There was once a butterfly which couldn’t fly so she asked some birds who can fly very high.

    The robin said I am busy right now getting food for my wife and child.

    The woodpecker said stop wasting my time go and ask someone of your size.

    The swallow said sorry I’m very busy,I can’t teach little insects like you now. However why don’t you ask the wisest bird. The owl might be able to help you now.

    The owl said hello butterfly I’ve heard that you can’t even fly. I won’t teach you how to fly I want to see you at least try. The butterfly said ok I will even though I never really tried. When the butterfly jumped of a really big branch she flew even higher then a house.

    Then the butterfly learnt a really important lesson that before you ask you must try everything yourself!!!! Hope you like my poem Kelly I made it by myself!!!!

  13. Marta says:

  16. karen says:

    hey kelly i just want to say your half sister book is amazing if u could make a series that would be amazing

  17. Ruzaika says:

    Hi Kelly,
    I wrote a poem for you here it is: The Duck
    There was once a duck
    Who wanted a buck
    To buy a little surprise
    For kelly mckain but didn’t know her shoe size
    So to have a think
    He went for a drink
    So he went for a walk
    And soon came upon a beanstalk
    He did a little hop
    To get to the top
    He found a huge house
    With big hairy mouse
    The mouse went squeak
    The duck looked at his beak
    The mouse had a flower
    Does it have any power
    I’ll buy it for a buck
    Said the duck
    For Kelly Mckain
    Also Kelly my sister says she also loves your books

  23. Jessica says:

    Hello Kelly!
    Long time no write. Haven’t popped in since what… 2013?
    Just wanted to say hi and I hope you are keeping well. I’m turning 15 in a couple of days so I’m a bit old for Totally Lucy I think but I still love it LOADS.
    Thanks for writing such awesome books and keeping me reading.
    I would read loads more if exams weren’t in the way *dramatic sighs*
    I will still forever hope for a friendship like Lucy, Tilda and Jules. You’ve set the standards pretty high.
    PS do you recommend I read the Goddess Society books? I think they look pretty interesting.
    All the love as always,
    Long time reader (and improving writer… :D)
    Jessica xx

  24. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Shannon!

    Thanks so much for your lovely message on my website. I’m so glad the Fairy House gave you that message – that is definitely how I feel about life! I hope you are having a wonderful time with your friends, family, activities etc and really enjoying yourself!

    I am actually writing the final four books now. Scholastic didn’t publish the end of the series so I have to find a different way to get the stories out – maybe as audiobooks! I’ll post on the site as soon as have any more info. Thanks so much for your interest in the series.

    Thanks again, Kellyx

  25. Shannon says:

    Omg kelly! I’m 14 years old and I’m still in love with your fairy house books! They have inspired me so much by teaching me that if you believe in something, you can do it.
    I was wondering if/when any other books in this series will come out? Thank you!

  26. fiona laing says:

  28. Maria Grazia Pizzicaro says:

    Dear Kelly,
    I’m an Italian girl who try to learn French and English. I have read Fairy House, Fairy for a Day in French. I have loved this book (can I say to you that you are a superb writer?), but I missed one thing of the story (sorry, I have read the book in a foreign language): Katie (Lucie in French) and the fairies have found the grenat and the topaz. What about the other ten stones of birth?
    Thank you very much,
    Mary Grace

  30. Neda says:

    Dear Mrs McKain,

    I am a student in a bilingual school in Bulgaria. My teacher has asked my class to write a biography about our favourite authors. You’re my favourite author but I can’t find much information about your past. I would like to know a little about your school life and your experiences before you became a writer and what inspired you.

    Please help me, I love you!

  31. Ella says:

    Hello Kelly, I love the Fairy House books and my mum has managed to get all 8 of them for me with the hard backs and real petal skirts. When will the last four stories be ready? I’m nearly seven and I would love to be able to turn into a fairy sometimes. Love Ella

  32. Naa says:

  33. Ladina says:

    Dear mrs McKain!
    I usually speak german, so I hope, there aren’t much mistakes. I’m 14 years old and when I was younger (but now too) I loved the “Pony camp diaries”. I dont know the englisch titels of the books, because I read them in german. In german they called: “Ponyhof Liliengrün”. Thank you for this nice books!
    ps: sorry for any mistakes I did in this english text :)

  34. Daisy says:

    Hi kelly,
    I was wondering and hoping that you could write another rainbow beauty book. I love Abbie and Marco also the fact that Summer and Ben finally became bf and gf. I just love the books and they are sooo interesting i could just read them all day.
    I hope you read my message and write a rainbow beauty book.!!!!!❤️❤️

  37. Lily Buckley says:

    I absolutely love your Fairy House books and have read 5 so far. I really like the cheeky fairies and the adventures they have. The descriptions are wonderful and it makes mr feel I’m actually in the story.

  39. admin says:

    Hi Anne,

    Thank you for your message. I’m sorry to hear you are feeling this way at the moment, but remember, you are not alone, even if it feels like it right now. Everyone has felt like this at some time or another (me included) and it will get better. What I would do is find things that make you feel good – a nice movie, baking something, taking up a new hobby you’ve wanted to try, and focus on those things and the enjoyment you get from them. You’ll soon shift into a happier place and everything else will follow. Those around you love you very much, although obviously they have their own stuff going on – that must be hard for you, but remember how much they love you and when they are there, just give them big hugs for no reason! And you can always write to me. Loads of love and hugs and smiles, Kelly xxx

  40. Aamilah says:

    hi Kelly!

    I absolutely love your series rainbow beauty, I think they so cool and ive recommended them to all my BFF’s who adore them too.

    P.S. my baby cuz really likes your fairy house ones!

    See Ya Soon Kelly x

  41. Penny yeomans says:

  42. Anne F. Anis says:

    Hi Kelly mcKain!

    Wish you luck and all the best!

    Love from Anne F. Anis from Malaysia.

  43. Anne F. Anis says:

    Hi Kelly Mckain!!!! Your Totally Lucy books have inspired me to appreciate my best friends more! But sadly, I don’t have any. I wish I could be like Lucy who has everybody by her side and always there for her. I don’t have anyone to talk to because my mom is sooooo busy working while my dad passed away 4 years ago when I was 13(currently 16). My brother and sister are working which they don’t have much time for me. I don’t have much friends at school since I was in primary. I just don’t get why I’ve never been given an opportunity to appreciate best friends like everyone else did. I am so lonely and depressed. I really want to be Lucy who can always ask for advices from her dad and her supportive mom and her two truly best friends forever ; Jules and Tilda. I really wish I could have a best friend to be spending time with and doing crazy stuffs.

    Anyway, thank you for giving an opportunity for a girl like me to speak out for myself.

    Bye Kelly mcKain!

    Love from Anne F. Anis from Malaysia.

  44. danielle says:

    hello, again Kelly, what’s up, how has your day been, being an busy author, it’s still the same girl for the other comment

  45. danielle says:

    hello Kelly,

    your books are just phenomenal, personally I think they are just splendid, I can tell that your fans appreciate you a lot, I do wish to be an author like you, but hardly think I will be as great as you, so I started of my interest in writing by this website called storybird, you chat to people across the world, and speak to actual authors the website is great, and it would be very recommended if you take a peak at how it looks like, if you could join than that would be marvellous, and quite extreme, please reply to this comment as you would never forget the day when you sign up for storybird, it would be very good to enlarge your fan status, as well make a little girl very happy


  46. lois says:

    Thank you so much for the letter you gave me today .(First day in yr3)once Miss Miles came in she passed something to Miss Mansi. This was me in the head who on earth is that for then Miss Mansi came over to me and put it on the table. It said my name and your name. I opened it AND IT WAS FOR ME!!!!!!! I read it slowly and put on a smile.

    That’s why I like you as a author

  47. Lois says:

    I have read lots of your book like half a sister ,peppermint kiss , blueberry wishes and loads more I really like Rainbow Beauty and the Fairy House story I was just wishing if you can write more Rainbow Beauty books like different titles.

  48. Tijana:) says:

    Hi, Kelly. First, I wont to apologize for my bad english, i’m from Serbia and I don’t know the language so well. I love you books , but I can’t find all of them, beicuse Serbia is not mucy developed country. I love your book so much that I’m willing to read them on english if I find them. In your books I like the most is that they are funy and never boring, also you discribed all teenage problems in these fascinating novels. I want to be a writer, really, and your book helped me to develop my own way of writing. Your way of writing is very unique and interesting, I sometimes wonder how you come to these excellent ideas. You are my favourite. You are my favorite writer from other countries and I really appreciate you as a writer, because you’re one of the best writers of our time. I really want to meet you, I honestly do not believe it’s possible, but I really hope that, when I grow up, became a good and strong writer, and then to meet you.
    Heartily, Tijana Nikolić

    P.S. One more thing that I love in your books are illusrations

  49. Lois says:

    I gave you a message from book day and you still did not reply and I want you to reply and give me one of your most special books that you made but if you think that all your books are special give me the book Charlie and Charm.

  50. louisa says:

    from lou

  51. Ailun Peng says:

    Hi, I am Ailun. I absolutely love books especially yours. Call me the book worm, I’ve read more books than anyone in school(I’m very like Grace).I want to be an author when I’m older. I really like your books and have been chasing them like a hound, I can’t wait to get stuck into your third book from the Rainbow Beauty series, I hope to hear from you and I most sincerely hope you continue to write more books about Abbie and her family, her friends, her problems and especially Marco. Happy writing and I will write back when I next get to go on the computer again (probably next week) Bye (for now)!!!!!!!!!!

    I know you wrote them quite a while ago but please write more “Totally Lucy” books as they are ” a cool and quirky read as Cathy Cassidy says!!!!

  61. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Mikaela, thank you so much for your lovely message about Fairy House. I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed them so much! I’m just about to start writing the next one, book 9, when I have finished my website replies, so later this week or next week! I don’t know how it will be published yet but I am just really excited to be finishing the series, and I will get them out to you lovely Fairy House readers somehow – I know the Fairies of the Universe are working on the details! Happy reading and have a great summer! Kellyxxx

    Hi Arooj, big hugs! I hope your BFFs Khansa and Shewanna and you are having a great time and laughing so much your sides almost actually split! Thanks so much for your lovely messages – I love reading them! I hope you girls have a great summer of sleepovers and getting outdoors and fun and reading! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hello, Mysterious H, and your sister too! I am just about to carry on writing the last books in the Fairy House series – I didn’t get to finish the series as the final four weren’t going to be published, but I just really want to write them and I’m sure there will be a way to publish them somehow, and bring out the first eight again! I’m working on three new young fiction ideas at the moment, and really enjoying that too. Have a great summer and happy reading! Kellyxxx

    Hi Fabulous Fashionista! I wish Lucy was real too! I sooooo wish I could go to a café with her and chat about fashion and boys and hear all her cringes! There might be some exciting news about Totally Lucy soon – I’ll keep you posted! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi again Samah! I don’t know anything yet but I will post on my site as soon as I have any info on Totally Lucy excitement!!! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Chloe! It’s fab to hear that you enjoy the Totally Lucy books so much! I am actually planning to write another one – I don’t have any details yet, but like Samah I will keep you posted – promise! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Selena, thanks for your fab post! I am sorry I don’t know Ariana, but I’m sure you will meet somewhere, somehow because you really, really want it to happen! How amazing to have seven best friends – that must be fun, and chaos! Have a great summer! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Easha! Xxx

    Hi Ellie’s lovely Grandma! Thank you so much for your message. It’s wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the Fairy House books so much. You can read more about what happened with this series and its original publisher on the Fairy House page of this site. The good news is that I am just about (as in now this week!) to start writing the final four books, 9-12, because I just really want to finish Katie and her friends’ story. I don’t know if they will be published or not, or in what way, at the moment, but they will definitely be available for you to read, and I’ll keep you posted about this on the Fairy House page. Thank you so much again, Kellyxxx

    Hi Shreya! Yes, I think you were the second one! I don’t have the details yet but I’ll keep you posted! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Amy,
    What an amazing, brilliant storyline! You should be a writer – you probably are already, actually! I always felt like one, even when I was about 7! There are no plans for more Rainbow Beauty books at this very moment, but you never know. The best way to get more books is to make sure everyone knows about the ones that are out so feel free to post reviews on Amazon and Goodreads (and iBooks if you use it!) if you like – that would be fab and may indeed lead to more books! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Katina,
    Great to hear that you love the Totally Lucy books so much, that’s fab! You might like Rainbow Beauty too if you haven’t tried them yet – they are the most similar. Have a great summer and happy writing! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Emily! Thanks so much for your message! I’m so thrilled to be your fave author! I just LOVE all you fab girls on here! Happy reading and have a great summer! Kellyxxx

    Hi Maddie! Thanks so much for your message! I’m so thrilled you loved the Rainbow Beauty books so much! The way to get more is to make these ones really popular, so please feel free to tell everyone about them and review on Amazon and Goodreads! Thanks, hon! xxx

    Dear Kelly,
    I have been reading your fairy series to my granddaughter, Ellie. We finished the 4 that were published in the US, and I have bought and read the 4 from the UK as well. Naturally, my question concerns when we can look for the remaining 4 books in the series. Ellie (and I) are anxious to find out what happens to the fairies and their tree. Thanks for writing such wonderful fanciful stories for little girls to read with their grandmas. Grandma Westbrooks.

    I really, really like your fairy house books. they have so much life. it was a really close answer when one of my friends asked me which one was my favourite so far. I decided on fairy riding school because it doesn’t just tell a story it has a part of good and bad and a big challenge with smaller problems forming to one big problem that Katie solves without knowing that she can.

  84. Arooj aslam says:

    and dont worry for me they are as good as Jacky!!!!

  85. Arooj aslam says:

    Hi Carly, Thanks so much for your lovely message. You can get all my books on Amazon – if you like Totally Lucy, I think you can get the whole set of 10 for ten pounds or something crazy at the moment! And you can order any books from libraries for free if you live in the UK. Happy reading and collecting! Love, Kellyx

    Thanks, Lara! xx

    Thanks, Orla, for your lovely message! Xx

    Hi Sophia! Thanks so much for your lovely message about Animal S.O.S.! I really enjoyed writing the books and it’s great to hear that you enjoy reading them! I hope you liked the new one, too. Happy reading and enjoy the sunshine! Kellyx

    Hi Ayanah! Thank you so much for your lovely message on my website! It was great to read that you and your BFFs did yourselves up as Lucy, Jules and Tilda! I bet you had loads of fun! Next time you do that, send a pic into the website and I’ll put it up on the Over To You page! It’s brilliant to hear that you enjoy the books so much – I hope you’ve had chance to read them all. I’m actually even thinking of writing another one… But I can’t say any more about that yet! Have a lovely time in the sunshine and happy reading – also big hugs to you and your BFFs! Love, Kellyxx

    Hi mysterious H!! Thanks so much for your lovely message about Rainbow Beauty! I’m thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the books so much! I don’t know if there will be any more than the three yet… What really helps with a new series is if readers like you can spread the word about the books to your friends and school librarian (and let them know I visit schools too!) so anything like that you can do would be AMAZING!!! Lots of love, Kellyx

    Hi Grace! It was so lovely to read your message on my website! I’m delighted to hear that you’re enjoying the Animal S.O.S books, and that reading the pony one gave you confidence in your riding. You might also like Poppy and Prince, which is one of my pony camp diaries books about a girl who needs to build up her confidence, or Emily and Emerald, about a girl who helps a rescued pony to gain confidence. I hope you enjoy them if you get to read them! Happy reading and riding! Love, Kellyxx

    Hi Arooj! I love your message on my website! You sound like such a cool girl – the way you write is brilliant! Please give a great big thank you from me to your teacher for telling you to buy my books (and tell him/her I do school visits!), and now you must tell all your friends to get them too, so they can become as well-known as Jacky’s books! That is your special mission, hee hee! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO massively thrilled you enjoyed them and I hope you get to read all ten! Loads of love, newest fan! Kellyx

    Hi Esther! I hope you had a fab birthday! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Charlie and Charm – I hope you get to read some more of the Pony Camp books soon!

    Hi Scarlett! Big hugs! X

    Hi Lauren, I’m sooooo pleased to hear that you enjoyed the Rainbow Beauty series so much. I’m not planning to write any more at the moment but you never know! The most fab thing you could do for me to spread the word about the series is tell all your friends about the series and get them to sign up to my mailing list, and maybe even write a nice review on Amazon – that’s the besy way for an author to get the publisher to commission more books in a series – make them really popular! I also do talks to girls in schools so maybe tell your librarian or English teacher about the books too!
    Have a fab day and thanks so much again for your lovely comments!

    Hi Chantal! Great that you enjoyed the recipes in the back of the books, too!
    I’m so thrilled that you enjoy my books so much! The most fab thing you could do for me to spread the word about the series is tell all your friends about the series and get them to sign up to my mailing list, and maybe even write a nice review on Amazon. I also do talks to girls in schools so maybe tell your librarian or English teacher about the books too!
    Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Julia!
    Thanks so much for your lovely message – it’s great to hear that you are enjoying the Rainbow Beauty series so much! I hope you got Blueberry Wishes at your book fair and got to read that too!
    Authors really rely on their readers to get a new series off the ground, so it would be amazing if you could spread the word about the books to your friends, and maybe even write a review on Amazon. I also do talks to girls in schools so maybe tell your librarian or English teacher about the books too! Big thanks and hugs! Kellyxxx

    Hi Layla, Thanks so much for your message! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Rainbow Beauty so much! Authors really rely on their readers to get a new series off the ground, so it would be amazing if you could spread the word about the books to your friends, and maybe even write a review on Amazon. If you’re looking for something new to read you might like my stand-alone book Half A Sister and my Totally Lucy series, and also I bet you like Cathy Cassidy! I am just reading Coco Caramel at the moment! I also do talks to girls in schools so maybe tell your librarian or English teacher about the books too! Big thanks and hugs! Love, Kellyx

    Hi Lola! Thanks so much for your fab message about Rainbow Beauty! It’s brilliant that you love the books so much! Amazing girls like you can help me sell millions (which would be very nice!) by spreading the word about the books to your friends, telling your English teacher or librarian (and let them know I do visits to speak to girls in schools too!) and leaving reviews on Amazon and reading sites. Thanks and big, big hugs for anything you can do!
    Happy reading and enjoy the spring!
    Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Ashleigh!
    Thanks so much for your fab message on my site. Well done for writing a book! You have to get a publisher and they sort out all the stuff about getting books into shops, but I wouldn’t worry about that yet. I would just read loads and enjoy writing and entering comps and getting your work on writing sites, things like that. You can even have your story up on my website if you mail it to me!
    Lots of love, Kellyx

    Hi Trishita, Thank you so much for your lovely message on my site. I’m really touched to hear that my books meant a lot to you and helped you feel connected to things. That really is lovely. I hope you’re having fun and getting to read and write lots! Lots of love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Samah! Thanks so much for your lovely messages on my site! It’s fab to hear that you enjoyed the Totally Lucy books so much. Well… if I had replied to this a week ago I would have said no more Lucy books, but guess what? I am thinking of doing an other one!!! So watch this space! You are the very first girl to know this, so I hope you are pleased!!! Lots of love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Yllka, Thanks so much for your lovely message! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the Pony Camp books so much, and a big hello to all your friends too! I’m planning to write another pony series for Germany soon, so watch this space! Happy riding and reading! Love, Kellyx

    Hi Nicki! Thanks for your message, I have e-mailed you. xx

    Hi Jayden! Thanks so much for your lovely message on my site! I hope you’re having a great spring, and getting to write and read loads! It’s great to hear that you’re loving Rainbow Beauty! Fab girls like you can really help the series by spreading the word about the books to your friends, telling your English teacher or librarian (and let them know I do visits to speak to girls in schools too!) and leaving reviews on Amazon and reading sites. Thanks and big, big hugs for anything you can do to spread the Rainbow Beauty love! Kellyx

    Hi Anne-Lore,
    Thanks so much for your lovely message – I’m delighted to hear that your daughter enjoyed The Fairy House books so much. I’ve had some problems with this series because Scholastic didn’t publish the final four books, and therefore the French publisher didn’t buy/translate them. I’m actually writing them at the moment now that I’m lucky enough to afford to spend the time without payment because I really want to finish the series. So, they may not have a print publisher, and may only be available on my website or as e-books. I’m not sure yet, but I’ll put any updates in my journal and on the Fairy House page, which I updated today, actually. Thanks so much again, and big hugs to your daughter, All the best, Kelly

    Wow, that’s great, Sandy! Now please could you tell all your friends about them for me, you total star! Love, Kellyxx

  118. Layla says:

    Hi Kelly! Just wanted to make a quick shout out to you. I really enjoyed reading blueberry kiss. I found it ver intriguing. The drama and romance all rolled up into one fairy tale like book. I spent ages trying to find a book as good as the rainbow beauty series, one I could relate to. Now that I have found that book I can’t wait for another! P.S. My little sister absolutely loved reading mermaid rock whale rescue at her school! She could’ve wait to read another!

  119. Julia says:

    Hi Kelly,
    I really love the Rainbow Beauty series and own the first 2 and I really enjoy reading them and hopefully at a school book fair, I will get the last book, Blueberry Wishes!

    Love Julia xx

  120. chantal says:

    i love those delicious recipes at the back of each book

  121. Lauren xx says:

    Hi Kelly xx
    I love your books so much, especially the Rainbow Beauty series! In my school library I reserved Blueberry Wishes before it even came out so I was the very first person from my school to get it. Its awesome that I actually got it on the day it came out! Please write more books so I can keep reading (especially in the Rainbow Beauty series!) You are a real inspiration to me and I hope to be an author when I grow up too xx! Where can we email our stories to? The link doesn’t work for me !
    Loads of love Laurenxx

  124. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Mia!
    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Peppermint kiss so much, and I hope you got to read Strawberry Summer too! Blueberry Wishes, the third book, has just come out, so i hope you enjoy that when you get to read it! It’s strange for me to have finished writing about Abbie and the fab Rainbow Beauty girls (well, for now anyway!), but I know I’m going to have just as much fun on my next book!
    Have a great autumn, and happy reading!
    Love, Kellyx

    Hi India!
    It made me so happy to read that you enjoy my books so much! I hope you’re having a brilliant autumn, and reading lots!
    Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Dearbhail!
    Thanks for telling me about your pony, Smartie! I used to ride a horse called Captain who was gorgeous, a really gentle Arab x bay. he was blind in one eye so he would get jumpy sometimes if he heard something he couldn’t see, so I know how you feel! I’m sure you’re great at keeping Smartie calm and being reassuring. I’d love to put a pic of him in the gallery if you want to send me one! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Ashleigh!
    I hope you found the Rainbow Beauty books in the end – sometimes not all shops have them and the best thing you can do is ask about them as then they think ‘oh maybe we should get those books in!’ which is fab for me! Abbie’s final adventure, Blueberry Wishes, is just out (you can see all the details and read the first chapter on my website) which is v v exciting but does mean I’ve finished writing the series (well, for the moment anyway!) so I do miss Abbie and the girls (and Marco, of course!).
    Have a lovely autumn and happy reading! Kellyx

    Hi Natalie!
    Thanks so much for your lovely message – I’m so pleased you liked my book!
    Happy reading! Love, Kellyx

    Hi Jana!
    I love your name too! I’m not doing any more pony books at the moment, but if you love ponies and adventue, you will like my new series, Animal S.O.S too! You can find out all about it on the website and read the first chapters – I hope you enjoy them if you have a read! Thanks also for the pony and rider suggestions – you never know, one day we may do more pony camp books!

    Hi Chantal!
    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Strawberry Summer and I hope you liked Blueberry Wishes too!Have a fab autumn and happy reading!
    Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Kaffia,
    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Half a Sister so much! I really loved writing it, although it took ages to get all the twists and turns in it to work and it really bent my brain! As you liked that book you might enjoy my new series, Rainbow Beauty, which is about Abbie and her two sisters – you can find out about it on my website and read the first chapters – I hope you enjoy them if you have a read!
    Have a great autumn! Lots of love, Kellyxx

    Hi Sophie!
    It’s great to hear that you are enjoying the Pony Camp Diaries books! I loved writing them, and my new series with riding and ponies in, Animal S.O.S. I have finished them all now so I will have to think up a new animal series!
    Have a great autumn! Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Connie!
    I would love it if someone made a movie of Totally Lucy – maybe you could become a director and do it when you’re older! There aren’t plans for more books at the moment, but you never know – I really do love Lucy and all her friends and family, so maybe one day…
    Happy reading! Love, Kellyxx

    Hi you Miss Princess!
    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed Half a Sister so much! Working out all the twists and turns on the plot took ages and really bent my brain!! As you liked that book, I hope you;ll like my new series Rainbow Beauty, which is about Abbie and her two sisters – you can check out the first chapters on the RB pages!
    Happy reading! Love, Kellyxx

    Hi Susan,
    I hope your writing has been going well – of course you can use Lucy as inspiration and her world! If you write something like that you could send it into the gallery on my site and we’ll put it up for you! Have fun reading and writing!
    Love, Kellyxxx

    Hi Mana,
    It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the Fairy House books so much! As you may know, Scholastic won’t finish publishing the series, but I am planning to write the final four now that I have got a break and publish them somehow! Kepp an eye on the Fairy House page for more news, as I decide what to do! Love, Kellyxx

    Thanks so much for your lovely message and sorry it’s taken ages to reply! That’s why I’m e-mailing too, to make sure you get your message back! I’m so thrilled that you enjoyed Peppermint Kiss so much and I’m thinking you have probably read Strawberry Summer by now and perhaps even Blueberry Wishes, which came out last month. I really hope you enjoyed them if you did! You might also like my Totally Lucy series if you haven’t read those yet, and Cathy Cassidy’s books, and Susie Day’s Pea books (there are three of those now, and I’m about to start the second one!). I hope you like them and have loads of happy reading time! Love, Kellyxxx

  131. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Anthony! I LOVED coming to your school it was amazing and one of my very very favourite! I’m so glad you found the tips useful, and I loved how we all sat round (eating Crunchies!) and discussing our projects, ideas and favourite films, books, TV series etc at the end – it was brilliant, just like a writer’s group. Your librarian is inspirational too! Kellyx

  132. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Sophie G! I would love to come to your school – it’s probably your new one now of course which is fine too! Your teacher or librarian can look up details in my site under the Author Visits section. To answer your question, the first Totally Lucy book is Makeover Magic. they have a thing on Amazon at the moment where you can get all ten in the series for £10, so £1 each, which is pretty amazing! You might also like my new series Rainbow Beauty, and you can find out about that (and enter a comp to win signed copies!) on my site too!xx

  133. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Jaden and Rhianna! Big hugs to you both!
    Hi Kara, I’m not sure where Abbie came from, she just seemed to spring to life in my mind, but I’m sure there’s a lot of me when I was that age in her! It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the book so much, as I hope you’ve had a chance to read Strawberry Summer and Blueberry Wishes, the other two in the trilogy, which are out now!K xxx

  134. saskia says:

  186. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Rihanna, lovely to meet you! – I’ll mail you some info, no probs!
    Hello cheeky Aysha! Thanks, I needed the luck as I’m about to get back on with my edit after this break!
    Hiya Tilly and Lauryn!SOOO glad u like it! Have a fab sleepover on Saturday with lots of crazy dancing!
    Hi Skye! I’m SO excited to get your message! I’m glad you found it all so helpful and good luck with your writing – don’t forget to send in anything you want displayed on the site to
    Loads of love girls! xxx

  187. Kelly McKain says:

    Claudia and Athikah – oh, that would be lovely! they’d have to fly me out there, though!
    Katrina, FAB to hear how much you enjoyed Totally Lucy and Pony Camp Diaries!
    Hi Sarah and Maren! Maren, I have e-mailed you back. xx
    Hi Zoe! Strawberry Summer is out on the 1st June, so not long to wait now!
    Thanks, Suditi! It was a bit brain-bending to plot all the twists and turns in Half a Sister, but I loved the challenge! I’m SOOO pleased you enjoyed it so much, and thanks for taking the time to tell me so!
    Wow, Kara! That’s loads! Keep them all because you never know when it might be the perfect moment to develop one of your ideas! To answer your questions, it probably takes about 3 months to write something like a Totally Lucy book, and everything inspires me, and my fave things are curly wurlys and swimming and yoga and cherries and roast dinners 9and loads more, go to Kelly’s Place to read about them!)

  188. Claudia says:

    Can you pleeeeaaaase come to my school.I really want ur autograph and books.

    xoxo Claudia

  189. Skye says:

    you visited my school today and I was really inspired. I have wanted to be an author or at least write a book from a very young age. I have always enjoyed reading and writing. your talk made me realise what it is like to be an author but it also helped be realise that that is what I want to do. I want people to read my stories! I have short stories before and I am currently working on a FanFiction that is going to be long. I know it sounds so teenage but I’m a teenager so I guess that’s okay. I like writing about things I like so I thought a FanFiction was the best way to go. thank you for making me realise that I am able to write if I plan and that writing is something I would like to do. also, thank you for helping me find new ways to create characters and get inspired!

    What inspires you when you write?

After they were gone i looked through your books and i rented style school out. It was then I got into them.

They were so good.

Work on your stories and when you WANT to then maybe give my stuff a read through, the last thing I want is for you to find it a chore to read my things:) So have fun and take your time!

    Hi girls! Wow, what a lot of fab messages! I’m so excited about how much you love the books – it really inspires me when I’m writing!
    Louise, what a great question!I guess I was like you and worried a lot – I did giggle a lot too and have fun, but perhaps I could have had more!! Oh, I know, I would tell myself at your age, ‘don’t worry, everyone’s not looking at you, they’re too busy worrying about themselves!’ Oh, and sorry I haven’t got to your stories yet – as you can see I’m only just catching up with my website! I will try and get to them soon but it might be over the Christmas break at this rate! xx
    Fab to hear you liked Pony Camp, Amy!I used to work at a pony camp so that gave me loads of inspiration!
    Thanks, Amelia, and I hope you enjoyed Jessica and Jewel!
    Saloni, sorry I can’t send books out but please do enter my next comp – someone from Gujarat won a prize last time so you never know!
    Kate and Elizabeth – it’s not that I don’t want to write more Lucy!! I know it’s hard for you to understand but writers aren’t really in control of these things, as our publishers have to want to do more too! Maybe there’ll be a new Lucy special one day! And thanks so much to you both for being such fab fans!

  267. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hey Kelly! Woah this summer has flown by! Not looking forward to going back to school, too many maths lessons for my liking (you may guess I despise maths) however I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again and getting back into certain lessons like English and art!
    I’ve read three books these holidays and am 2 and a half thirds through one more book, the books I’ve read are: ‘out of sight of of time’ by ally carter, I’ve also read the other books in the series – ‘a bad boy can be good for a girl’ which I got from a magazine and didn’t really enjoy it – spoiled by two female authors which is also very good and I’m currently reading heist society by ally carter. I recomend all these books except a bad boy can be good for a girl, I didn’t really like it. But I’ve enjoyed sitting by the pond in my garden (only when it’s sunny, otherwise I’m in my room) and reading for hours!
    Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed summer Kelly! Don’t forget to email me when you have a minute about the stories I sent you, if you can:)
    Thank you!
    Love always xxx

    Hi Kelly -
    Your post on the Girls Heart Books blog has me all kinds of intrigued about your Animal SOS stories for my daughter. I fear I’m in the wrong part of the world, though – nothing on Amazon/the Kindle, Barnes & Noble, or my local library. You have secret info about how I might yet be able to buy them? Thanks so much –

  284. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hey Kelly,
    Aw that’s cute! Hehe:)
    I’ve been thinking alot about how fast life goes recently…I never really noticed until recently. It feels like just yesterday I was doing SAT’s and finding them so nerve-racking and going out every afternoon with a bunch of friends after a ‘hard’ day at primary school. I wish I could go back to those days:’( But now I’m sitting here in high school uniform, being lazy and being so scared about future GCSE’s! Soon enough I’ll be in college etc…I REALLY need to start doing some things and…LIVING!
    Do you have anything to recommend that I do before I start growing up even more?
    What do you wish you’d done?
    Thanks, much love:-)xxx

    I recently found 3 of the fairy house books (#2, 3, 4) in a bookstore that was going out of business. My daughter loved them and I have been on a hunt to find the rest. They are really hard to find. I ordered the first from Barnes and Nobles and apparently has 5 -8 for 10.99 each plus shipping, any ideas of how to get the rest???? Help…thanks

    Hey Kelly and Everyone, Yesturday I had a chat with my friend about her leaving me out of the party(see my last post) and I sort of understand now. I suppose it’s still a little hurtful and I do still feel left out but it feels so much better to talk it out:) I advice you to do it when you have troubles!
    Much love xxx

  303. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Dear Kelly and Anyone else who reads this, I’m very upset. I cried today because it’s one of my 4 best friends birthday on Sunday and she has only just started organizing her party. We were super close in the start of last year and now we arn’t because she hangs with other people. Anyway, my 4 bestfriends are her and these other girls that I’m still best best best friends with. And she has invited all of them to her party (which is a meal) and she hasn’t invited me. She got two of my best friends to tell me that it was because she doesn’t talk to me anymore. (I’m crying now just thinking about it). So now there will be pictures all over facebook and she has left me out and I’m so upset I can’t even tell you because this means that she isn’t my best friend anymore. Because best friends go to each others parties. I haven’t said anything to anyone except my mum about how upset I am but you have no idea how sad I am right now. Do you, Kelly, or anyone have any advice on how to deal with this? Some comfort or help would be super appreciated:)
    Thankyou Kelly and All
    much love xxx

    I’ve had so much stress lately, with the changing set’s/classes that I was telling you about and my friends had a couple of fall outs, they’re okay now thankfully:)
    So I’ve been so tired lately, I really need to relax but I can’t find the time:( See I have tons of homework and tests to revise for, and I have new friends to make and I volunteer at something called ‘messy church’ near me. It’s basically a craft workshop that mostly elderly people help with. It’s for under 11′s and I really enjoy helping the children and going to organisation meetings because it makes me feel needed and it’s good for my CV. It takes a few hours off me which I could have for doing things with friends ect.
    Anyway, I have an RE test to revise for:( Lucky me!:P
    Much love xxx

    TO dear Author Kelly:
    I really enjoy your books.I am from Pakistan.Your book are Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!.P.S please write some more series.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  309. heidi says:

    hi kelly
    thanks for reading my comment. i find it can vary a lot depending on which school you go to as well. my school is a west midlands, staffordshire school so our area is about the same.

  310. Manasi says:

    Hi kelly,

    It is suh airthday and your coincidence that my birthday and yours are on the same day 3rd Jan!!

    To top it up my fave colour is also purple!!

  311. Cheesyhorsegirlxox says:

    Also Kelly,

    We dont say dumped. in our school we say ‘breaked’ or ‘I’m going to break up.’ or ‘ i broke up’ we dont really say ‘dumped’

    We say it cause it’s like breaking there heart i dont know if that helped but i hope it did xxx :)

  312. Cheesyhorsegirlxox says:

    Basically going out can mean different things for people. For example ‘do you wanna go out’ means do you want to be my boyfrined/girlfriend. This is because people say ‘i got asked out’ means to us Scot’s someone asked me to be there boyfriend/girlefriend. It can be confusing if you know what i mean.

    When i got ‘asked out’ this cute buy said to me… Do you want to go out i knew this ment boyfriend/girlfriend sort of way. but once my friend said to me. Do you wanna go out. I knew this ment like to the cinema/swimming/bowling etc. It depends i dont know if that helped. :)

  313. Roxy says:

    Heyy Kelly!
    I read your message about asking out and being dumped. Well, we have a school Prom coming up and some of the boys asked girls. So they were like, dating. And then one of the girls broke up with one of the boys (by letter!) and so he was dropped. She thought he liked someone more than her so she chucked him. So thats what we’re doing!!!! :)

  314. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hey Kelly,
    Your welcome, anytime you need a question answering well…you know were to find me:)
    Aw, I bet whoever sent you that note is going around saying “I asked our Kelly McKain!” Hehee, I never really have had a proper romance. A boy in primary had fansied me since year 1 but I didn’t like him back then a bout a month before the end of year 6 TWO boys wanted to go out with me! The first was a nice-ish boy, and I was being ‘messanger’ for him and my friend and he said he liked me. Then after this shocking news another boy asked me out and I was like…”GUYS WHY NOW, WHY NOT LAST YEAR?!”
    SO I suppose the right guy hasn’t come a long. I know I’m not gonna fall in love with someone at my age but I’d like to fall-in-like with someone. I DECENT BOY! It’s unbelievable how rubbish all boys are now :(
    How about your husband Kelly what’s he like? How did you meet?
    Much love xxx

  315. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Heidi, Louise and Any!
    Thanks for your comments about the going out thing! It’s amazing that it’s exactly the same as when I was your age, in the dim and distant past! I also remember once finding a note in my desk saying ‘will you go out with me?’ but it wasn’t very helpful as I never found out who it was from! Thanks again, girls! MWAH! xxx

  316. any says:

    I don’t think that helped or if i made things more complicated Whoops :P

  317. any says:

    Idon’t know about everyone elses school but in my school we ask our friends to ask who you want to go out with and then they say ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Then if they say yes people spread rumours and your now GF & BF. And when some1 dumps u or u dump them we usually call it dump or ‘walked over’ when someones dumpes you and mean hearted when you dump them. It is hard but you get over it soon exspetily when its me ( WHY ME!!!!!!!!) Bye Kelly

  318. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hey Kelly,
    Hahaa only just read about the dumped thing.
    Well: A boy might say too his mates ‘I finished her’ which means dumped. You know so words for dumped that I hear used are…finished, dumped, through, ended it (that’s what girls might say eg “He ended it”) and thats all I can think of really :)
    Hope that helped xxx

  319. heidi says:

    hi kelly. if someone asks you out you are officialy boyf and girlf until they (or you) say “sorry i don’t want to go out with you any more” then you are dumped. well it’s like that at my school anyway and it’s high school so it should be pretty much the same anywhere else. also you never actullay “go out” as such you more just hang round each other at school and buy each other prezzies for birthdays and christmas. hope this helps :)
    p.s also it’s useually the boys who do the asking out and the girls do the smiling and they know if a girl really likes them cos girls mostly will go a bit clumbsy around them and panic a bit or blush like mad or accidently have a giggling fit (i.e my friend does that a lot)

  320. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hi Kelly, well it can be both it depends in what context. If a girl was telling her friends “He asked me out.” Just like that it would be the bf and gf way also if a boy said to a girl ‘will you go out with me’ that would probably mean in a dating type bf and gf way. I think unless its VERY clear you mean on a date, then it usually means will you be my boyfriend/girlfriend:)
    So I’d say it means be my boyfriend/girlfriend:D
    Hope that helped xxx

  321. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi girls!
    Can you do me a favour? I want to find out what you call ‘going out’ at your school / round your way. I mean when people are boyfriend and girlfriend. And if someone ‘asks you out’, does that mean to be boyf and girlf or does that mean to go somewhere on a date and then you might become an item later on?
    Also, when you dump someone, or someone dumps you (sob sob!) do you call it being dumped or something else? We used to call it chucked, which made it sound like they were actually throwing you in a skip!
    Thanks, girls, you are stars! Kelly xxx

  322. Mia says:

    Thanks for your support Kelly! It would have been really cool if there was a one-off Jules sort of thing! And of course I will send you the story when I’ve finished it! xxx

  323. Cheesyhorsegirl xox says:

    Hi guys I am sorry I havent spoke in ages its just my horse Pepsi has been ill latly so just saying hi and i will start spaeking often cause I am missing out on all the fun hahahah :)

    I finished book 1 that I told you about in my last post this morning and started book 2 a few hours ago. Already love it!xxx

  325. Alaina says:

    Thanks 4 your reply kelly and yes I did x

  326. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Hey Kelly, don’t worry about taking awhile with my stories I understand your busy:-) But don’t forget to email me what you think when your done. I’ll send you the one I recently wrote once you’ve finished:D
    I’ve read up to chapter 21 out of 29 today because ‘I’d tell you that I love you, but then I’d have to kill you’ is such a good book. So far I really recommend this book and I’m sure the series will be just as exciting!
    I’m dreading going back to school at the end of this week:( You see, I recently moved up a set at my school which means they obviously think I’m clever but, well, let me explain why this is bad… The sets at my school go like this:
    CLEVER- A1 A2 A3 – H1 H2 H3 H4 -NOT CLEVER
    My friends are all in the ‘H band’ and I was in H1 with 3 of my 4 best friends. But now I moved into a whole knew ‘band’ and am in A3. This isn’t good because 80% of the popular people are in A3 as well:( I feel out of place, I make friends easily and do know some people, but still…I suppose I will have to get used to it:) I’m sure it’ll still be fine by the end of school, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger right;D
    Much love xxx

    Hi Angelina, my Lucy does get in trouble, but not on purpose!
    Hi Lillie, I’m not sure where Ideas come from – people, places memories and imagination all mashed together probably! Mia, that sounds great. We did have an idea for a Just Jules spin off series but it didn’t happen in the end. Don’t forget to send in your stories when they’re finished and I’ll put them up on the site.
    Wow, thanks, Laura! And Emily! And Supa! And Mim! And Annie!
    Katie, how cool for you! Great to hear you love the books!

    Thanks for your lovely comments on Half a Sister, S!
    Hi Ysabel! I’m sure you’ll have adventures like Lauren and the rest of the Pony Camp girls soon! I really think horses are going to be a huge part of your life!x

    I have just read a book called ‘how I live now’ by Meg Rosoff. At first I didn’t like it but then it ended up so good. It’s unusually moving and it gives so much excitement, I really enjoyed it. I recommend it too you, kelly, and anyone who’s reading this. Probably a tad rude and confusing for younger people though:-) Give it a try!:-D
    See you soon!

    Hey Kelly! It’s my birthday on 29th March, I’ve asked for the whole Gallagher Girls series and I might ask for Heist Society as well, both are by Ally Carter. Have you read them?
    Mothers day is coming up, and so I’ve decided along with a bought present I would make my mum some special coupons. Home made ones that say things like ’1 night off cooking’ and ‘hoover the house’ and stuff that I know my mum doesn’t really like doing. Is it a good idea? I really want to show her how much I love her because I really do but I don’t know if she knows it. As a mother yourself do you know your children love you even if they don’t say it? Thanks:-)
    Talk soon!

    Heyy Kelly!
    You might have heard from my big sister Onyx. I just wanted to tell you that I am in the middle of writing you a story about Jules like her diary instead of Lucy’s so it’s like a different point of view. I just thought it might be fun and it could go anywhere! Then after that I’m going to write Tilda’s diary. This could be really fun! What do you think?

    You are a fab author…I really love your Totally Lucy books, and the Pony Diaries and Half a Sister are cool too. I remember when I first read Totally Lucy (Catwalk Crazy) and then read it again and again until I knew it off by heart, honestly. I begged and begged my parents to let me get a new one, and devoured that too. So basically I have all of them! Keep writing!! :-)

You are such a great author :) I have a book blog, where I review books, and I reviewed your book! I would love if you could look at my blog, I left a link to the review below :)

    Hey Kelly!
    I am soooo tired! School is so boring. How much homework do they give us?…Too much! Some lessons are so yawn-o-matic I actually almost fall asleep!:/
    I need a holiday in the sun! Long days, evenings in restaurants, beaches, pools, sun cream, sand, rubber rings, snorkeling, ice cream, flip-flops, deck-chairs and all the things that I love! Never mind. Summer is only a few months away. Not like the British summer is much good anyway but whatever.
    Hope your okay!
    Love always xxx

    P.S I am now reading ‘To kill a mocking bird’ it’s so good! Have you read it Kelly? I love Atticus, he is s wise!

    At school every friday we go to the libary and last week when we went to the libary I took out a book and it was by Kelly Mckain and I have only just started reading it and it was so intresting I needed to find out whether was a website or not
    And now I`ve found this!!!!

  369. Nat says:

    Hey Kelly!
    I recently found out about your site whilst looking for the next pony camp diaries. I loved them and got the first 6 books when I was younger. I still have them and read them and I am now 12!! I love the pony adventures as I am horsecrazy!! Keep writing them! xx

  370. victoria says:

    oh ok i got Picture Perfect and it was SO awesome so I hope i will get more books written by you.Good luck!

    hi louise i know how you feel about the uniform. i have to wear a blazer with shoulder pads as well. and the jumpers are really stiff so you cant move your arms propperly.

  372. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Oh no, back to school now and I forgot how bad early mornings are:/ Plus my stiff, ugly, stupid uniform is already getting on my nerves. It’s hard to enjoy yourself as the female class clown when you’re blazer has shoulder pads in it and bunches up whenever you raise your arms!:( Annoying!
    But it’s great to see all my friends after a long 2 weeks without them:-D Me and my best friends are already getting ourselves into trouble. Silly us;D For example, in PE today we were doing basket ball. Occasionally I was getting involved but the rest of the time I was just dancing around the court making the team’s not playing (including all my friends) giggle like crazy!
    Homework is another down side of course, and tests and strick-o-teachers. The only good thing is seeing my friends and getting to mess around with them!:D
    Love always Kelly! xxx

    hiya guys i am helen and i have a massive crush on this boy i used to go out with.

    we hav had a few snogs but then we broke up and i want to get back 2gether anyy advice?


  394. heidi says:

    i also have a very good death stare which i used quite a bit and it worked cos the were silesio when i did it (btw a death stare is when you look at someone like “stop that now” kind of way.)

  395. heidi says:

    btw she helped a lot cos she was so popular so you could find someone like that who has been your BFF for ages then they will stick up for you.

  396. heidi says:

    hey roshni
    im in year 9 but in year 7 i got teased. a lot, but not about fashion, it was because i was so much smaller then everyone else. i was 147cm when they were all like 160cm or something like that. i was treated like a baby. eventeualy they got used to the fact that in was not going to get any bigger that fast so they stopped. just sort of tell them this is what you are like and if they are not happy about it tough. it helped me though to have the most beautiful girl in school as my BFF she had been since we were 3. so when she was around i was ok.

  397. Laura-loves-reading says:

    Hey Kelly!
    I am really inspired by you and your books, I’d love to hear from you!

All my friends say its really good! I bet they’re right. Anyway, like Jules, I really want to be an actress when I’m older and I know this sounds really nosy but what is your most embarrassing moment ever? Mine was when I fell of the stage when I was in a play and landing right in my crush’s lap!!! Cringe – a – rama!!!

    Hehee, I’m currently working on 2 stories! One is a diary by a young girl in WW2 that gets evacuated to a farm and she goes through little adventures. I decided to write it because I have a strange love for WW2! Not the fighting and death of course! But the good british spirit and evacuations and things that happened at home! How exciting!:D My 2nd one is about a girl and her friend in America that get kidnapped and she has to use her skills to get out!
    Hope they turn out okay! I’ll send you them when there finish if you want?
    Big huggs!xxx

    With Sympathy for you, and your fans

  417. Onyx says:

    Hey Kelly!

  421. patrizia lucchetti says:


    Mrs Kelly McKain

    My name is Patrizia Lucchetti, I’m Italian (with Swedish origins),

    I’m 41 years old and fairly well-educated.

    As I intend to come to London in order to improve my English and test the waters of job market in your country, I ask you if you know someone who could help me.

    I have no problem to move abroad and I think that the best solution

    would be to offer my services to an English family/single

    composed of persons who work in the same areas where I had my working experience

    and did my studies, i.e. children’s industry, publishing, psychology, religion etc.

    I would like to work with people who cultivate my same passions because in this way

    I could grow up and broaden my horizons and at the same time count on people

    who firmly believe in the continuous improvement of psychophysical well-being.

    I spent the last 15 years working as a freelancer and an employee and

    based on my experience I’ve gathered that the best years (those more creative, exciting and during which I had a lot to do and to learn) have been those that I spent working in the children’s industry -publishing, clothing, cosmetics- and

    with psychologists who dealt with scientific/philosophic matters

    -obviously besides their field of expertise-.

    I hope that my request will not go unnoticed and will have a positive feedback.

    I would like to express my most sincere thanks and send you kind regards.

    Patrizia Lucchetti Torresan

    Hello No 1 writer it’s your No 1 fan here just wanted to say that a couple of weeks ago at school I was talking about you and your amazing books I and got an A+ Told you ‘m your nomber I fan I luv you Kelly

  458. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    Please egnore the P.S bit on my last message. I feel so rude saying that!

  459. Isabel says:

    hi kelly you never responded to my last message. id like to hear from because i such a big fan and it would be awesome to know im actually talking to. i really like this website thanks and i really hope you write

  460. Louise A.K.A Your no#1 fan! says:

    I haven’t written on this page in ages, so ofcourse being the loyal fan I am I decided to update my writting to you.
    You know I love the Lucy books because of the piccy I sent you! They are so funny, I found myself re-reading a few pages of them a couple of days ago. I have been buisy with other books like the books you advertise at the back of Lucy’s stories ‘Summer Camp Secrets’ I’m on number 8 I think. I have most of them.
    I have also been reading ‘I captured the castle’ It’s an adult book but it’s apropret. My mum read it first and then gave it to me to read. It’s about a girl that lives in an old astle with her family, she has to encourage her dad to write again after he stopped doing it and they got into poverty. Then they meet a rich family and so many things happen! It’s wonderful, I don’t want to tell you to much but I recomend you read it!
    Well I don’t want to say anything about the comp yet, I will wait until you post about it. But I have replied to your email if you want to read it. I would like to add to my email:
    P.S= I don’t supose you could write a letter as well? Only if you want to make it more special!
    Well I best go, but have a good summer! And I hope Freddy is perfectly settled. You MUST post another picture of him, he is so cute!
    Bye for now!xxx

    hey kelly
    i got a small story that i made up in english. hope you like it
    ‘”maisy, lola’s at the door.” mum yells at me. i slide off my bed and run to the front door. lola was there looking extatic. “hey lola” i said as she let herself in, “waz up”
    “omg maisy i got it” lola said with such a hight piched note i was suprised that dogs didnt start barking. i shut the door. lola was talking about how we both asked to be extras in harry potter and the deathly hallows.”oh lola thats grate. i havent got my reply yet.” i said
    “you will and you will get in, you’ll see” somehow i doubt it, im mad about harry potter and acting but im not part of a drama club or anything but lola is.’
    and that was as far as i got. i didnt have much time and it was straight off the top of my head so its not the best i can do. luv totally lucy btw but for some reason whsmiths only sell 1,2,3,5 and 7 so iv only got those ones but i hope to get more

  468. ShaunaCorrigan says:

    Hi! Me again, Shauna Corrigan… la la la la!!! And I want to say to humans who look at this now, pleas etell me what you thought of that last post. I will continue the story from there.

    “Mum..” I said. “At school today Jade told me that Holly had pups.You know.. could I..” I stopped. “No way” Mum said. “You know that I am allergic to Jade’s dog..” But I swear I saw a little shiny glint in her eye when they looked away from the stove and into mine. I’LL SAY MORE SOON!! XXX Shauna

  469. ShaunaCorrigan says:

    Arrrgh! I cannnot believe you, the BEW (best ever writer BTW,)

    by Shauna K. Corrigan

    “Oh my goodness me!” Mum exclaimed as I walked through the door. Oh no, i thought. She must have noticed that mascara I forget to take off like, maybe an hour ago. “I guess you’ve seen my erm.. eyes then.” I spluttered out with half of a Twix. “Hmm” Mum said. I was pretty sure that was a yes. “I’ll be off to Jade’s then.” I told her and I expected her just to go “Whatever” or that but she stopped me in my very own trails. “Aaah! Stop right there Shirley Burke!” She said.
    “Take it offf first.” Great. I thought, she hadn’t eaten my head off.

    Oh Leah, and I meant to say you can find loads of answers to writing questions on the Got A Question page too! xx

  478. Kelly McKain says:

    Olivia, wow thanks for such a lovely message! Hope you enjoy the rest of the series! You can find out about all the books and read the first chapters on the Lucy page on this site AND link through to Amazon to buy them!
    Louise I don’t think I had any entries for the comp but I’ll check with Pollinger. I will make the date on the Dress Up Lucy page the end of August now, though, so you can enter if you haven’t already! please do let me know if you sent an entry in as maybe they have got lost and I can look into it.
    Thanks, Shannon! There aren’t any more Totally Lucy books planned but I am writing a new series for your age, which I’m sure you’ll love if you like Lucy.
    Hi to Angel, Leah, Georgia and Amy from Highsted! Leah, see the Over to You page for writing tips! Georgia, Diary of a Wimpy Kid is really funny so far! Amy, of course I remember you! Let me know if you can get the book, and I’ll try and get one for you via the Japanese publishers as well.
    Angel, it was so lovely to meet you and good luck with your writing! Make sure you keep in touch and let me know how it’s going!
    Isla, wow you sound SO like Lucy! You can find all the books on Amazon if you can’t get them in the shops (and you can order them from the shop too if you ask at the desk, and they will get it for you). You can also go on the Lucy page of this site, read the first chapters, pick which book you want next and then link through to order it from Amazon! Easy!
    Hi Rowena! I agree with you about Simon Driscott!
    Loads of love to you all girls! xxxKellyxxx

  479. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Chrissie! Thanks for all your fab questions! I will answer them on the Got A Question page next week, so check back there soon!
    Hi Ola! Sorry I can’t read Polish, could you write in English? A big hug to you anyway, in whatever language!
    Wow, cool! Thanks, Aliya!
    Tamara, sorry to hear you’ve had trouble getting hold of the books. Can you get them through Amazon UK? they aren’t available to download at the moment (they should be and I’ll talk to my publishers about this next week!)so if you can’t get them from Amazon send me a private e-mail at and I can organise something for you from here – means you’ll get them signed too!
    Charley, you can find writing tips on the Over To You page and when you’ve got a story together, send it in to the page and I’ll put it up in the gallery for everyone to read!
    Same to you, Anisha. I really hope I get to read you girls’ stories soon!
    Hi again Jace!
    Loads of love to all you girls, MWAH!!!

  480. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Skicycle!
    Wow, what a superfab fan! It’s brilliant to hear that you love the Fairy House books and that you’ve read them so many times. In the US you can also get the Quentin Quirk’s books (Attack of the Butt-Biting Sharks / The Purple Sluggy Worry Warts) which are by me but written under the name Matt Kain, or you could get the Totally Lucy books from the UK via Amazon UK. I think you’d love them too! I’ll put your questions and the answers up on the Any Questions page next week, so look out for them there!You can find out all about what’s happening with the Fairy House series on the Fairy House page of this site and see why I can’t do any more at the moment (boo hoo!) but thanks for your fab title ideas. Thanks for writing in and happy reading!

  481. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Louise,
    Sorry if you got missed out last time! Hello to you!! Did you send one in, and if you did, was it scanned and e-mailed or sent by post to the Pollinger address? Let me know and I’ll check it hasn’t got lost somewhere as I don’t remember seeing one from you. xxx

  482. Rowena says:

    I <3 your books! and the illustrations! i reckon that simon driscot has fancied lucy forever!

  483. Amy says:

    hey, I’m not sure if you’ll remember me, but I was the girl at the grammar school who wants to get your Totally Lucy book in Japanese? I had a lot of fun, learning your techniques on writing and all that. I was hoping that I might be able to send you a story sometime *once I’ve written one* ? I’m still trying to find a Japanese copy of the book :L
    anyway, I hope things are good for you in the future
    –Amy xx

    I am in L-O-V-E with your “Totally Lucy” books. I have read, Makeover magic,Style School and boy band blues. I am in the middle of Fantasy Fashion and it is REALLY good so far!
    I would love to read some more of your books but i just can’t find them in the book shop, but i will keep on looking.
    I had already started on a diary like Lucy’s before I stared reading hers,and I think that our life are ALOT the same, like in Fantasy Fashion “Dog Boy” is like a boy I like and “Jules” is like my best mate and i want to be a fashion designer when i’m older and I am all ready in a Fashion school Kinda thing so I am on my way. I love the Totally Lucy Books Because they are about fashion and about what every girl goes through on a normal school day (or not normal)

    Hi kelly,
    Im doing a readers champion contest at my school and one of the challenges is to write to an author and i thaught of you! I was thinking of some questions to ask you and thaught of these. 1) Did you know you always wanted to be a writer? 2) where do you get your ideas from especially Totally Lucy there my fave will there be any more? 3)How long did it take you to write the first of the TL series and why did you choose the storyline you did? thanks from chrissie x

  499. Skicycle says:

    Hi Mrs. McKain,
    I love your books, especially Fairy house. Snowbell, Rosehip, Bluebell and Daisy are my favorite characters in the book, but Katie too! I have a question. I want to be a writer when I grow up but I don’t know what to do first. Any ideas? What inspires you? And why did you decide to write about fairies? I lived in England but I moved to America. PLease please please, write a new fairy house book. How about: Fairy Trouble, Fairy Magic, Magic Mixup, Fairy Wings, Fairy Fun, Fairy Faculty, Fairy School. Like any of those titles? Maybe they could meet a mean horrid fairy in a book. I’m on the second book in fairy house. Fairy for a day! What is your language? Every day I read your book during school: Independent reading, partner reading, recess, free time, sometimes lunch. Home: Breakfast, snack, dinner, before bedtime, weekends, Upstairs in my bedroom. I am embarrassed to announce but I read out loud your books. I’ve read them 100 times. What is your fav book you’ve wrote? I love love love fairy house books. Do you believe in them? I sort of do. Well, love the website about you and your books! How do you become a author?
    Best Wishes
    Write more books soon!
    Love Skicycle xxx

  559. Amy Davidson says:

    Hi Kelly,

    My name is Amy and I live in London, England. When i’m older I REALLY want to be a writer… I looks soooo much fun you can spend all your time in your own world dreaming up new characters, places and well anything you want really!
    The only bad thing would be not being able to think of any new ideas or thinking of a fab idea but not being able to put it to paper! That must be annoying

  581. Roshni Patel says:

    Heya Kelly,

    I have read the whole series of Totally Lucy series, and I enjoyed it so much!

    I love how you make a problem then she gets really worried, I even get worried too… that it won’t end right. Then it’ll get stuck in my head forever (well…until I finish the book)!!!

    My favourite is Summer Stars and Best Friends Forever!

    I love the illustrations, how about sending me a few tips maybe, because if I don’t achieve my writing business, I’ll definitely become an artist!!!

    Many fluffy and warm regards, Love Roshni Patelxx

    P.S. I’d appreciate some writing tips too!!!

  582. Louise A.K.A No#1 fan!!! says:

    You desurve to be honered as the greatest writer in the world! I finished half sister a few minuets ago and it is fabtastic! I can’t wait to hear about the lucy app:) Also what is you’re email address? I get them of the internet but I don’t think there right because you never reply:( But anyway love you lots:) :) xxx

    Hi girls,
    Thanks for all your fab comments!
    Lina, good luck with your writing!
    Louise, great to hear that you love Half a Sister! thanks for being such a fab fan!
    Louise and Lina, the Lucy app won’t be out for quite a while, as it’s only just being developed now, but i’ll let yo know the second it is!!
    Thanks, Holly! MWAH!
    Fairy Morgan – Fab to hear you love the Fairy House books – I think Rosehip is my fave fairy too!
    Lauren – hope you’ve got some more hacks in since the snow melted!
    Thanks, Chloe!
    Jane, as for tips, I think, just remember that every girl goes through it and feels shy and worried about it too sometimes. If you have any worries, chat to your mum or a teacher you trust. xxx
    Sophie – wow, it really means a lot to me that Totally Lucy has got you into reading! Now try Cathy Cassidy and Karen McCombie’s books as well!
    Thanks to Lauren, Jessica, Sarah and Louise for the lovely XMas wishes. Happy new year to you and all you girls!
    Zanelli – writing AND drawing! Lucky you, i wish i could draw. Vici’s illustrations are FAB, aren’t they?!
    Lorna, see Got a Question and the Over to You pages for writing tips and inside info on being an author. I agree it would be fab to have a TV series of Pony Camp, let’s hope a TV company buys it!
    Love to all you girls! Kellyxx

  606. Kelly McKain says:

    Kaitlyn, there’s a glam party at the end of Star Struck, so you might find some ideas there. I went to a fab x-mas one once given by Scholastic the publisher where there were two big tables heaped with gorgeously-wrapped presents and you could just choose one! that was pretty cool! there was also one I went to where the brought out sushi on frozen metal trays so they had to wear gloves – also cool (literally!) hope that helps! xx

  607. Kelly McKain says:

    Zlatina (cool name, BTW!) the next question in ‘got a question’ will be about how to start writing a book so look out for that – and there are writing tips on the Over To You page too. Hope that helps! xx
    Hi Lauren and Charlotte, well done to you both in the dressage – you go girls!xx
    Kaitlyn and Isabel, thanks for sending/telling me about your writing, sounds fab! I’ll have a look soon when I get a mo, am just catching up with everything right now so won’t be long! xxx

  608. Kelly McKain says:

    Chloe, Georgia, Keely, Lucy, Tanya and Haseena, you girls were all asking about whether there will be any more Lucy books, or new books in general. It looks like no more Lucy at the moment I’m afraid, but I’ll let you know if that changes. As for new series, there is something in the pipeline which is secret at the mo but I’ll let you know the info as soon as I can, promise!!!
    PS. PS means post script – and no, i don’t get what that is either! xxxx

  609. Kelly McKain says:

    Thanks to Erin, Lucy, Abbie, Jessica, Chloe and Georgia, Angelce, Belinda and Naveli for your lovely comments. they mean so much to me and really inspire me. Mwah!!!xxx
    Haseena – Style School is my fave too!
    Lucy, what a fab idea for a Christmas book. I’ll run it by my editor at Usborne – maybe we could do something in time for next year! xx
    Ummi, sorry you’re having trouble finding books in Malaysia – maybe Amazon can send them. I don’t have book stocks to send out, I’m afraid – let me know if you do find a way to get hold of them as i know other girls in your situation would love to know. xxx
    Wow, Louise, after reading your message (and are you also Louise Lennon or are there two extremely nice Louises??) I might treat myself to a Curly Wurly, although it is honestly true that I’ve alaredy had three today (whoops! i blame the cold weather!). that’s if i can get my head out of my study door after all your nice comments!

  610. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi girls! Thanks for all your fab messages! Sorry I haven’t written for a while, I have had a revolting lurgacious coldy-type thing which wouldn’t go for ages and then I’ve been catching up on all the work I got behind on! But i’m here now (yes, Erin, this is really me my actual self!) so get ready for all the replies…

  611. Isabel says:

    Dear Kelly,
    Me and one of my friends are very passionate about writing and have started a blog: “The Secret Life of the Bels”. If you can, would you be able to read our blog from the 1st blog and perhaps tell us what you think of it? The recent posts are better so you might like to just read the posts of your interest!

    Hi Paula,

    Thanks so much for your comment! Could you get someone to help you send it in English so I can put it up? Thanks! Kellyx

  641. Kelly McKain says:

    Hi Paul,
    Thanks for your message about the Fairy House books. Unfortunately there are problems getting hold of these books, and you can read the full update and info on the Fairy House page of this site. I’m not sure where you live but you should be able to get hold of books 5-8 via so I guess that’s something. As you’ll see from the full info page, this is completely out of my hands and I’m very sorry you can’t get hold of all the books. Kellyx

  642. Kelly McKain says:

    I like the first 4 FAIRY HOUSE books. When ever I go to the book store or check I’m always told it out of stock and can’t be ordered. Will Fairy Sleep over and the other titles ever get a re-release from Scholastic?

    Hi Lauren! I think I just wrote back to Charlotte today! How cool that you are BFF and get to ride together! Hope you enjoyed Charlie and Charm!
    Lily – good luck with your writing! You can find a whole load of writing tips in the OVER TO YOU bit of the site.
    Lucylou – thanks for your fab ideas! Totally Jules would be WILD wouldn’t it?!
    Tanya, it doesn’t look like there’ll be any more at the mo, but I am developing a new comedy journal series so i’ll let you know when there’s any news on that!
    LOVE you girls! MWAH!!!

    Hi Kelly!!

    I am Lucy, and I am 13 (nearly 14; October 2nd!!). I love the Totally Lucy series; best books EVER!!!!

    Thoughts and dreams? Hmmm . . . . let me see . . .

    Thoughts: I love cats, and I think about them a lot. I also love the colour pink, and I think about how pink I could make my dream house.

    Dreams: I dream about publishing my first book in secret, and how I tell my parents and friends about it! It’s sad, I know, but it’s a great dream.

    Faves: I love the colour pink, cats . . . erm . . . and TOTALLY LUCY!!

    Ambition: To be a published author who illustrates her books, and live in a pink mansion with 30 cats and suuuuuuper fit boyfriend :)

  678. Georgia says:

    Hello Kelly,
    I have sent a book to you and I hope you enjoy it! It is called the confusing life of emily and i hope you get it in the post!! I love your totally lucy books sooo much and i wish i could write books like you, i like number 4 STAR STRUCK!

    My name is Mio.
    I’m 8 years old.
    I’m Japanese, living in Berlin.

    I love to ride –
    I really would like to join a pony camp in Sunnyside Stables!
    Is it a real one?

    My mother is a translator.
    She has already published a few books,
    and I want her to translate this pony camp series into Japanese.
    These diaries are the first books that I read throughly in English!
    I started learning English when I moved to Berlin, one year ago!


  680. Annabelle + Georgina Goldsmith says:

    Hi Kelly McKain

    Just to say that we really, really, REALLY like your Totally Lucy books. We have both read all of them and Georgina also has read and likes Mermaid Rock and Fairy House.
    We really like the Totally Lucy books because they are about fashion and about what every girl goes through at school.
    We especially like Catwalk Crazy and Best Friends Forever.

    Annabelle and Georgina Goldsmith

    P.S. Love the illustrations!
