    Yay! I love verity sparks-savinov and own the first two books! I have read them over about six times and can’t wait for the third, I wanted to ask you a couple of quick questions, firstly is when is the third book coming out!? I will be very keenly on the watch,!
    Secondly is about Poppy, my own name is poppy and so you can imagine how delighted I was when I discoverd her!! How old is she? I have pictured her around nine or ten but I have no idea?? And lastly do SP and Miss Deane get married?? Cause I think they would make a charming couple!!

    Thankyou for your time I shall be on the watch for your reply!!! Cheerfully yours, poppy
    P.s I am nearly twelve and am a avid bookworm!!!☺️☺️

      Hi Poppy,
      Sorry I’ve taken a while to reply, I’ve been on holiday. Thanks for telling me how much you enjoyed my books. The third one, “Verity Sparks and the Scarlet Hand” will be released in August. I have already had an advance copy and I’m really happy with it…I hope you will be too.
      Now, for your question about Poppy. (Poppy is a lovely name, by the way.) Poppy is somewhere between eight and nine. I am vague because she was abandoned as a very young child and as a street kid, she has no birth certificate.

      As for your other observation – about SP and Miss Deane.You are quite right – they WOULD make a charming couple. But do they get married? That would be telling. You will have to read the next book to find out…
      Thank you again, Poppy, for getting in touch, and I love it that you signed off “Cheerfully yours.”
      I have spent most of the day gardening (which I enjoy) so I will sign off,
      Tired, grubby and happily yours,

      Dear Gemma,

      Thanks for your comments and I’m so glad you enjoyed the new Verity novel. And it’s good to hear that you are a keen writer. What’s the key thing you need in order to write? I’m not sure how to answer that, but here’s my advice for everyone who wants to write – you learn to write by writing, so that’s what you need to do. Read a lot, too. Good luck!
      All the best,
