Question: How come you seem so younger than you really are?

Hullo, Phyl. You’re very different. Most authors are. Quirky. Unusual. Odd. You’re a grandmother. How come you seem so younger than you really are? You don’t sound, feel old. I guess most grandparents are different from grandparents who are authors. I wrote to Judy Blume once. She’s like you. For crying out loud, she’s 70 something and she could pass for 20ish. Because of the way she writes.  Well, I just wanted to say that I’m kind of disappointed that there will only four more Alice books and the whole series will come to an end? That’s what I heard. That’s all.

PHYLLIS Replied:
Maybe writers have a more direct line to how they felt when they were your age, I don’t know.  But thank you very much for the compliment.  I’ll be sad too when the series comes to an end, but I think that the very last book, #28, will tie up all the loose ends.  Hope so.
