posts on 5/28/2006 6:10:17 PM Wow, I just stumbled upon this site and must say I love you guys! Thanks for being so enthused about my books :-). To answer some questions: YES there will be more Sammy Keyes books. I just finished the first draft of #11 which will be titled Sammy Keyes and the Wild Things. It's summer time in Sammy's world, and she winds up going backpacking, and agrees to wear hiking boots instead of her high-tops. Mistake #1. It's all blisters and biting, scary, nasty things from there. Oh, except that she and her friends run into Casey and Billy Pratt (who's basically jumproping with a 10-foot rattlesnake.) They get lost and...well, I don't want to give too much away!! There are 20 Sammys planned and around #15 or #16 she'll discover who her father is. Stay tuned!! About Flipped...lots of people want a sequel, but I think it's the wrong thing to do (philosophically, not financially!)so I'm not planning one. I am, however planning another romantic comedy that I know you'll love. Before that, though, I have a book coming out in September that's titled Runaway. It is the story of Holly Janquell, who you'll recognize from the Sammy Keyes books. It's her story up to the time Sammy rescues her in SK&the Sisters of Mercy. It's not a "tie-in" book--it's a stand-alone, but if you've read Sisters of Mercy you'll find it very interesting. Thanks again for all the positive comments. Keep reading! Wendelin
posts on 5/14/2006 5:09:21 PM Ms.Van Draanen, can you please answer a question for me. I am dieing to know if the Sammy Keyes mysteries has stopped. Was Sammy Keyes and the dead giveaway the last book you are writing in the series? I am dieing to know. I am a huge fan of Sammy Keyes, and those books rock! They trigger me, making me feel connected and into the story. I can relate to it in so many ways. Well, could you please reply Ms. Van Draanen? Thanks so much!

posts on 4/19/2006 2:47:21 PM I flipped over your book. its the best book ever and i wish you would keep writing about Bryce and Juli. You should make a movie out of it. I have been searching forever to find a sequel or a movie for ages. I also think i could play the part of Juli Baker considering I have read the book 27 times. You would make alot of people happy that way! Including me!
posts on 4/13/2006 4:30:37 PM I havent read any of your books except Flipped. But I thought it was awesome, a sequel would be awesome. Is there a list of some of her other books that I could get?
posts on 4/10/2006 10:56:30 PM I love everything about the Sammy Keyes books. I can just really relate to her in so many ways, and I love mystery! I can't put one of the sammy keyes books down when I read them! Keep up the AWESOME work! Also, you should make the Sammy Keyes movie! I would sooo audition! I would love the part of Sammy!
