I have just had eye surgery and will have another operation in January 2010, so please be patient as it will be some time before I can answer letters.

Miss after reading your books I am more than sure of your skills. But however the same cannot be said for your biography. As being a children's author having such mentions of nudity and misbehaviour's of your earlier age could in turn misguide children. In hopes that such obscenities be taken of your biography.
With some concern.

Hello Nancy,

Wishing you an elegant, full and speedy recovery from your eye surgery.

My son and I have been looking forward to the publication of the third book. Can't wait to go get it!

Your ability to create such an original story and to incorporate history, mythology and magic has been such a gift. Thank You!

All the Best,

Hi i am doing a report at school, and got to choose an author i wanted to do a report on, and i loved your book the house of the scorpion so much that i wanted to do you, my report requires me to attemp to contact the author, and i hope you reply back. Please email me: cerector2@yahoo.com

I don't say I agree with Sanjo and Celse regarding the biography.
I myself am 13 and that biography did in no way make me want to imitate anything Mrs Farmer did as a child.
I think Mrs Farmer has a right to include what she wants in her biography.

Dear Nancy,

Do you have an address to receive letters at? My second graders are reading The Warm Place and we spent some time writing you letters. I would love to be able to mail them.

I really hope that the surgery goes well with you, Mme. Honestly, your books are real eye-openers; There are times when I feel so depressed that I feel like giving up. A few pages of Scorpion, or from the Trolls Trilogy usually cheer me up, though, and help me with my problems.

But what I really love about your works isn't the comedy (although that's great enough on it's own), but the way they seem to make everyday problems seem like trifles. There are times when i have trouble understanding my own faith, and... Well, kinda start to doubt. But I made a right decision in following Jack's example: There isn't any set religion for me. As long as we all get along with each other, as long as everything works out in the end, then there's no real need to be picky over details. We're all human beings.

You did a lot to dig this depressed teen out of a ditch. And not just me: I'm really sure that there are a lot of people who feel better after reading your books.

And... to Sanjo Sanbu:
Can you honestly help someone without experiencing it firsthand? Everyone makes bad decisions in life; it's part of being human. Besides, knowing what to avoid doing is decidedly an advantage, is it not? We learn from mistakes. Success just gives us big heads. (No offense intended Mme. Farmer). :D

Yes, your books still appeal to people of my age group. It kinda reminds us "grown ups" how fun it was being a kid.

Now that I think of it... Shouldn't that be categorized as an AUTObiography? (Pardon the all-caps) Just curious.

And, out of curiosity, when do you expect to recover from the surgery? I and a few of my friends are offering up our prayers to your speedy recovery.

1/16/2010 04:22:14 am

I hope your surgery goes well and wish you a speedy recovery.

I wanted to thank you for writing your wonderful books. "mi vida" has become a catchphrase in my family thanks to House of the Scorpions.

I love how you mix the legends and histories in trolls. You have piqued my curiosity about the Nordic myths and legends. Do you know a good place for me to look into this further? Google isn't very helpful on the topic.

Also are you planning on getting your books translated? I recently moved to Israel and was quite devistated to discover that no one(of the few I asked) knew of these wonderful books here. My own copies will no doubt make their rounds but not everyone has the patience to read in English. Israel is a small country and not many people read in hebrew in the world at large but in general I wish everyone could get a chance to read your wonderful books in their native tounge.

Thank you so much, I happy slightly belated new year and speedy recovery to your eyes.

PS. I did some more digging and you have your books in 26 different languages, impressive! I cant seem to find out which books where translated into those 26 languages though. Just curious.

i loved the book!!!!! i wish i could read it for all my life. i am such a nerd. I WOULD MARRY IT.

Why did you have eye surgery for?

1/27/2011 11:16:37 am

I read 'The house of the Scorpion' and the only thing I'm regretting about reading it is, 'Why didn't I read it sooner?'You're a great author. Please keep on writing. You might be surprised to know that I'm a 6th grade student from South Korea(If you don't know the country, find it in the map).I'm waiting for a sequel of 'The house of the Scorpion' now, the first one was so interesting!
