Did you cry?

Comment:

I have been in tears many times reading your book. It is very touching.Did a german shepard really attack the real Shiloh or did you come up with that in your own?I can only imagine how sad it was to write scenes like that. Did you ever cry when you were writing some of these scenes? I have always wondered why Judd was so mean to his dogs.

 

Phyllis replied:

I imagined the attack.  And if you cry when you read it, you can be sure I had tears in my eyes when I wrote it.

Shiloh characters

Comment:

Hello, I love your book Shiloh. It is really good, it has really good detail. Me and my class just finished reading it and we really liked it. Some of my classmates even cried when bakers dog attacked Shiloh. I have a gusetion for you though how did you come up with all of the characters in your book like Judd, Marty, Shiloh, and Becky and Dara Lynn?

 

Phyllis replied:

I just made the characters up.  That’s what writers do.

More movies?

Comment:

I also loved how you made the story end in a happy ending. Also I think you need to make more movies like Shiloh but different. why was marty a boy instead of a girl. Do you feel bad for Jud.

 

Phyllis replied:

I hope you’ll watch the other two movies, Shiloh Season and Saving Shiloh.

Shiloh

Comment:

I read your book Shiloh and watched your movie. I absolutely loved it and I liked how at the end of the movie it was more intense at the end of the movie. I also have a question why was Marty,s best friend in the movie a girl therefore in the book his best friend was a boy? My final question is how did you come up with the name Judd!

 

Phyllis replied:

The movie director put another girl in the movie, not me.  I chose Judd because it was a name I felt was least likely to be the name of a reader.

Another Shiloh movie?

Comment:

hungry for another movie! I want Shiloh. It would be an amazment to meet you. I love your book Shiloh. Does Marty finally kill an animal? When did Clover pass? do you still go to your friends house? The movie made me cry seven times. Do you live in Friendly?

 

Phyllis replied:

I live in Maryland, Marty didn’t kill an animal, my friends moved to Missouri, and Clover died in 2000.  If you’re hungry for another Shiloh movie, watch Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season, and Saving Shiloh.

Super intense

Comment:

How do you think of such creative books and movies? I loved how at the end of the movie it was super intense and how Shiloh got to stay with Marty. I was crying. I also loved how Doc fixed up Shiloh. Did you like how Judd acted at the beginning to the end. Thank you!

 

Phyllis replied:

I think Judd acted exactly as he should have–all the characters, I felt, were portrayed very much as I had described them.

Hello my name is Corey and I have a question for you, do you like the ending of the book or the ending of the movie?

 

Phyllis replied:

I liked both.   But I think the ending of the movie is better than the one they were originally going to use–to have a judge in a courtroom decide who got the dog–Marty or Judd.  I thought that was a terrible idea, so they put on the ending that you saw.

Marty’s fault?

Comment:

Hi I thought your book was great. Also the movie was amazing. Do you have any pets? The movie made me cry. Do you feel sorry for Judd? I do. Do you think that it is Martys fault for taking Shiloh and Shiloh getting hurt? I think that it was not his fault. Thank you for making the  book it was the best book I have ever read. Thank you for your time and I hope you can get back to me.

 

Phyllis replied:

Marty is responsible for having penned the dog up in such a way that the German shepherd could get in and hurt him, but it certainly was the last thing Marty wanted to happen.  Sometimes the decision that seems right to us when we made it turns out to have consequences we didn’t expect.  But I can well understand why Marty felt he would do almost anything to save that dog.

Shiloh movie

Comment:

I loved the book and movie so much. I wish that I could meet you. The movie almost made me cry. Why is Marty’s friend in the book a boy, but in the movie his friend was a girl? Thank you so much for the book and the movie.

 

Phyllis replied;

The movie producer added the girl to the movie.
