  1. K.D. McCrite,
    I have LOVED your Confessions of April Grace series. I got the 1st book at Barnes and Noble, and realized that there was a sequel. I later got that book, which I asked for; for Christmas, and admired it. I did not know that their was a 3rd book to! I got that book for my Birthday, and was overjoyed. They were all amazing. I hope that if you can, and have enough inspiration, that you would be able to right more!!!! ( #4, #5, etc.)

    Ever since I read your first book, I could see the Jesus shining though you. I like that. It shows me that the books I read by you will be God honoring, as well as evangelical. I will not be reading a book that is… bad.

    When I grow up, I have dreamed of being an author. Ever since 3rd grade, I am going into 7th, I have wanted to write God honoring books, for various readers, with various genres. Reading books like yours have given me a hope that I can do that, through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13)

    You are a great role model to me, and hopefully for my generations to come.

    Thank-you for being a Godly inspiration for me!!

    Hope you might be able to give me some pointers!

  2. I just finished one of your books and it really surprised me when i started reading it. It surprised me because it’s based on the Ozarks because I grew up there. I actually have heard of all the places in the book. I really enjoyed it and i can’t wait to read another book of yours.

  3. Our library just got your last book of the Annie’s Attic Mysteries, “The Ring in the Attic” and really want to thank you for a WONDERFUL end to the series. Or, at least, I assume it’s an end to the series, although I’m certain the fans of this series would love to read more episodes of Annie Dawson-Butler’s life!! I had to read this book from beginning to end, and could not stop for anything until I had read it all! (I hope I didn’t get crumbs from my sandwiches in the book!) You really made the ending the most perfect ending ever–and that’s what really good stories have!!
    Thank you so much!!
