Hey Lindsay, wasn't it Williams, not Smith?

I don't know who this will be read by but has Ellen Emerson White recentley been publishing books? The ones I've read by her have been 20 years old, they weren't in book stores but i got them at the library. Are there any new ones out?

I agree that Ms.White has no obligation to post any of her personal information, and I do respect her privacy.
My daughter's teacher was told that we couldn't find any personal info on Ms. White and she told my daughter to "look harder". That is why I called our local library for help.
The library provided us with a form to give to my daughter's teacher stating that there is no such info. Hopefully, this teacher will accept the form.
Yes, I was frustrated, but not with Ms. White, I was frustrated with my daughter's teacher.

I love your books. Especially Journal of Patrick Seamus Flaherty, United States Marine Corps, Khe Sanh, Vietnam and Where Have All the Flowers Gone?: the Diary of Molly MacKenzie Flaherty, Boston Massachusetts. I love those 2 books. The Journal of Patrick is one of my favorite! Well.... I'm trying to to find a biography about you. But it seem there is none. May you tell somethings about your self?

yvette, you sound a little frustrated about not being able to have the library tell you about ellen emerson white's hobbies, but really, she has no obligation to create a website to make her private information public. she writes wonderful books for your daughter to read! that's enough.

My daughter had a report to do on you and we could find no personal information whatsoever. I called the library and they had no info either.
My daughter needed to know what your interests are, your hobbies, about your family life, where you were born and raised, and where your ideas come from and how do you know what to write about. I finally had to get a letter from the library for her to give to her teacher stating that there is no public personal information on Ellen Emerson White. I suggest that you get a web site or something that will help any kids who have future projects on authors.

I just came across this site today; I sympathize with Heather B. b/c I don't want to sound like a freak, either, but I need to ask: on about my 4th read-thru of All Emergencies, I noticed that Dana's family doctor back in New England was named Jennings (p6). Was that a deliberate reference to Rebecca?!
Ms. White, if you still monitor this site, I love your books! I can't wait for the sequels mentioned. Please write faster.

Is there an "official" biography for Ellen Emerson White? I just finished reading one of her books and I need it for a project. It would also be great to know who wrote the biography, also. Thanks!

At long last! I am so happy to hear about the sequel. I can still remember discovering Romance Is A Wonderful Thing when I was 15 years old (20 loooong years ago). I gobbled up all of her fiction after that, and they are in various states of disrepair on my bookshelf. Reading her stuff taught me that it was okay to use my own, authentic voice in writing for teens, that I didn't need to talk down to them or edit out the colloquialisms. I even wrote to Ms. White about 13 or 14 years ago, and to my astonishment, she wrote back. So gracious. Thank you for telling us more of Meg's story. I wonder, does she end up at Smith? I wonder what Preston is wearing these days.

I'm doing a report in school about the author Nicholas Edwards, who writes the Santa Paws books. I'm curious. Did you write the Santa Paws books under the name Nicholas Edwards? I can't seem to find anything about him.
