Thank you for writing the sequels

Hello Michelle,

I'm not sure if you're ever going to read this, but I can faintly remember that some 15 years ago when I was 10 years old, I had just finished the last book of the Chronicles of the Ancient Darkness for the first time. I could barely speak English at the time – let alone write it on your website – but I remember I wrote a similar message like this, with less structured grammar probably, asking you to write a sequel to the last book. By coincidence today I discovered there is not just one, but three! I'm happy my prayers have been heard ;-).

I've always loved your books as a child and I'm looking forward to reading these new stories about Torak, Renn and Wolf. I just wanted to thank you for your important input in my childhood's reading experience, ensuring I'm still a big reader in my young adult life.

Kind regards,
Kiara Haegeman from Ghent, Belgium

Dear Kiara,

What a great message to receive after a long and tiring week!  I’m delighted that you’re pleased about the sequels.  I know that I meant it when I told your younger self all those years ago that I didn’t intend to write anything after the sixth book – but then things changed.  I had a really good idea, and I soon realised that it would need three more books, not just one.  So there we are.  I thoroughly enjoyed being back in Torak’s world, and I really hope you enjoy it too, as and when you can get your paws on the books – even if though it may feel a little different, given that you’re now grown up.  Thanks so much for getting in touch.  With very best wishes, Michelle
