I get a lot of email asking similar questions, so I thought I’d post this latest one and my answer:
Hi, I’m a fan of the Lemonade Mouth series. I live in the UK. I saw the film and decided to read the books, I loved them. I’m a GIANT lemonhead and I really want a second film made based on Lemonade Mouth Puckers Up you’ve written. I love your books and I am thirteen and want to write a book myself. Could i have any tips?

Dear Lemon Head uk,
I’m so glad the Lemonade Mouth movie led you to read the books! As far as writing tips, just keep writing and writing. Share your work with other writers who care about writing and improving, and read their work too. A big tip: Forming a writing critique group (for example, get together regularly with friends who also write and want to improve) is a great way to do this. Give good, thoughtful feedback about their work. Listen to the good, thoughtful feedback they give to you. Read a lot. Write some more. Read some more. Keep following your passion.
