... that is how we call our little, chubby colleague and you can call him that, too.

He is here for your questions and comments.

How old were Fox and Jacob when they first met? Based on the book I think they were 16 (Fox) and 18 (Jacob) but then another part of the book seemed to suggest 12 &14. Also, do you answer the questions on Cornelia's facebook or does Cornelia answer them?

Hi Arctic Fox, at the beginning of Reckless I they are both in their early twenties...

Is there any special meaning behind yours and Cornelia's names?

Ich habe die Tintenwelt-Reihe schon gelesen und habe heute mit dem ersten Teil der Reckless-Reihe begonnen. Hab den ersten Satz gelesen und wusste sofort wieder, warum Sie, liebe Frau Funke, meine Lieblings Autorin sind.

Herzlich willkommen in Cornelias Gästebuch, Kishka

Insa, please check your email! There's a surprise waiting for you

Bon45 on 2 June, 2019

Insa, I and Melissa have sent you our Joint story... Please check it!

Wow, I'm definitely lacking some bad qualities in that story. I appear to be a saint

Tessa on 2 June, 2019

Wann kommt ein neues Buch von der Tintenwelt heraus (bin gespannt darauf)?

Das dauert noch, Tessa, denn erst mal beendet Cornelia den vierten Band ihrer Spiegelwelt-Reihe, und auch ein viertes Drachenreiter-Abenteuer erscheint vorher. Aber Ideen und Notizen zum vierten Tintenwelt-Band liegen schon in Cornelias Schublade.

Melissa on 1 June, 2019

Hello Insa, when is your birthday? And guesty's?

My birthday is on the 18 July, but Guesty has no idea when he was born

Amy on 31 May, 2019

Hi. Does The Islands of the Fox has a US publication date yet? Sorry if this question has been asked and answered already. I did look through past messages first, but was unable to find anything about it.

No, not yet, Amy. We will keep you posted here.

Birke on 30 May, 2019

Liebe Frau Funke, Ich wollte fragen, wann der 4. Teil von Reckless rauskommt. Wenn er rauskommt, wird er dann ins Deutsche übersetzt? Und wenn ja, wie lange dauert das? Ich wollte Ihnen auch sagen, dass ich ihre Bücher liebe! Besonders die Recklessbücher, die Tinten-Trilogie und den Herrn der Diebe. Aber auch "als der Weihnachtsmann vom Himmel fiel". Allerdings fand ich es schade, dass der 3. Recklessteil kein wirkliches Ende hatte Ich hoffe, das ist im 4. Teil anders. Viele Grüße, Birke

Liebe Birke, Cornelia schreibt den vierten Band ja in deutscher Sprache. Und dann wird das Buch in all die anderen vielen Sprachen übersetzt. Wahrscheinlich erscheint Reckless 4 im Herbst 2020. Wir halten euch hier auf Cornelias Seite auf dem Laufenden.

Britta on 26 May, 2019

Liebe Frau Funke Ich wollte mich mal für Ihre wunderbaren Geschichten bedanken. Ihre Bücher atmen wahrhaftig! Ich tauche immer wieder gerne in die von Ihnen geschaffenen Welten ein. Vielen Dank auch für die magischen Vorlesemomente, die Sie mir als Lehrerin und meiner Klasse immer wieder bescheren. Ich wünsche Ihnen von Herzen alles Gute!

Liebe Britta, herzlich willkommen in Cornelias Gästebuch und vielen Dank für den wunderschönen Eintrag Insa und Gästy

Barn chat is amazing! I meet beautiful people and I hope I will meet them another time. See you soon new friends!

Arctic Fox on 22 May, 2019

I just matched up the Mirrorworld Map with Google Maps! I can't believe that I only just found out the Goyl Empire is Germany! I hope there will be a bigger map/different map in Islands of the Fox

Arctic Fox on 22 May, 2019

Greetings Insa and Guesty! What does it mean by 'stories with profanity and content' will not be shown on 'Your Stories'? Do the 'Reckless' counts as one? Also, where's Australia in Mirrorworld?

Hi Arctic Fox, well, it means that we will not publish stories, that contain profanity or any other content that is not suitable for Cornelia's website visitors.

Melissa on 21 May, 2019

At last, CHAT IS back!!!!!

Grace on 20 May, 2019

What is a Barn Chat?

The Barn Chat is our chat here on Cornelia's website. You can chat with other visitors of "The Barn", about Cornelia's book, about writing, about all the world and his brother We will announce the next one soon. We had some technical problems, that's why it was offline for a while.

Lunalia on 16 May, 2019

Since Mo's favourite treat is chocolate, do the have it in the Inkworld? And does Resa get her voice back in Inkdeath? Thanks

Yes, there IS chocolate in the Inkworld, Lunalia As to Resa, sorry, but no spoilers here

Lunalia on 12 May, 2019

I think it must be against a law to have such kind, inspiring people in the same family!
