Boys against girls story idea


No, I’m not asking to write a story for you, but I am a writer myself, and I had an idea for you. I love your Boys against girls books–I sympathize with the Hatfords–and have been reading them for off and on for over a decade. Here’s my pitch: it’s the end of high school and one of the Malloy girls is thinking of going to Buckman College. I think that would most likely be Beth, but you would know best. The whole family decide to come for a visit while looking at the college. It’s the perfect excuse for them to go back, and at sixteen, the book would be cool for teenagers and long-time fans of yours. I don’t have much for what what might happen, but I wanted to put this in your ear. Thank you for your inspiration and excellent stories.

I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed that series.  I now have nine 3-ring notebooks, each labeled with a new book title, filled to capacity with notes for nine new books I want to write.  So though I appreciate your idea, I like my other ideas more.
