    Hi Susan and Zac and all blog readers,
    My name is Sandy Nelson. I am a teacher and a Mum of 3 boys and I wrote one book too (The Ghosts of Iron Bottom Sound). I want to say that I love your books Susan, and I know lots of kids who love them too. I think you are one of New Zealand’s best writers for children. Yesterday I bought ‘The Drover’s Quest’ and I am looking forward to reading it.
    Have fun being Star Author! I have really enjoyed meeting you at writer’s meetings Susan.

    Hi, I am reading your book Dreams of Warriors, it is really good so far, I never read a story about the war in New Zealand before… all the war stories I have read are set in england or somewhere like that (like goodnight mr tom). I’ve got to the bit where there’s a horse race and Gipsy is winning but then….something bad happens 😦 but I think Gipsy will win the next race! it made me scared when they had an earthquake becuase we had one (well actually lots!) too, but it would be more scary to be bombed I think.

      Hi, I’m pleased you’re enjoying Dreams of Warriors. World War Two was a difficult time for NZ as so many men went overseas to fight, leaving their families to cope running farms or working. And I agree, it would be very scary to be bombed, though luckily that never happened here. I’m sorry if the earthquake scene scared you. I can understand it must be very scary after having gone through one yourself.
