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

He is here for your questions and comments.

I absolutely adore all of your books! They are so dear to me and each of them offers a different yet equally enchanting adventure. But perhaps my favorite is the Thief Lord and I have some questions regarding it. Where did Renzo and the merry go round vanish to and does Barbarossa ever return to Venice again? Also is Scipio truly happy by growing up before his time? Even though some questions were left unanswered I think it is a complete book in itself and enjoy returning to it again and again!

Dear Lark, we all are invited to let our imagination run wild regarding those unanswered questions Cornelia wanted The Thief Lord to be an open-ended story

Hi I am new to your website and I haven't read your books yet, but my older sister has read your books and visited the website. Please may I ask you what was the first book you published and how does it feel seeing it in the shops?

The curious Bookworm on 2 June, 2020

I understand that people have different definitions of books. Mine is: A book is an adventure hidden in between two innocent covers. I would also like to know what Guesty and Cornelia have as a definition of a book. As I understand that they mean different things.

Hi curious bookworm, a book opens a thousand windows and whispers the promise that the world is a wild and adventurous place
 As to Guesty, since he is a book himself, it is difficult for him to "define" it

Hi, I just watched a documentary featuring you on DW TV channel. It was nice to hear your views. I'm from Pakistan and have two teenage sons. I hope and pray for them to live in diverse and harmonious communities where people practice love for all and hatred for none. Your efforts in this regard are much appreciated. Peace to you.

Reihaneh on 26 May, 2020

Hi, I'm sooooo sad can't make it to the chat. Was Grace in the chat? Oh I can't talk with Grace, sooo sad

Hi Reihaneh, Grace did not come to our last chat, but Diana was there. I will announce the next chat after the weekend.

Diana on 26 May, 2020

Hi Insa and dear Reihaneh. I think so too. It may be from Egypt or other countries. Oh. I never paid attention to his sentence

This site is very interesting.

Abby ( aka The literary lunatic) on 20 May, 2020

Hi Corneila, I just wanted to say thank you, your books are keeping me sane. I am a total Inkheart addict, and I adore the whole trilogy. I live in Ireland, and, during the Coronavirus, I have to wait months to go back to school, which I love. Inkheart is my reminder of school, as I have read it there quite a bit. I am also trying to write a story (the last one I wasn't sure about), do you have any ideas for...getting ideas? Sorry my message is so long!

Dear Abby, welcome to Cornelia's guestbook As to inspiration, Cornelia collects ideas about something she is really passionate about, characters she wants to talk about and that readers would want to read about. Then she collects ideas for pla...Read more

Emily Madeley on 19 May, 2020

Hi Cornelia, I absolutely love the world of mirrors and Jacob reckless, I always get into the world of Jacob and friends no matter how many times I re- read your books, my end of year art exhibit was inspired by the mirror world. When is book 4 coming out. I know I'm one of thousands who are absolutely waiting with excitement for the next adventure of Jacob and company.

Dear Emily, welcome to Cornelia's guestbook The German edition of Reckless 4 will be published in October. It is still not known when the English edition will come out.

Reihaneh on 18 May, 2020

Hi , I hope one day Cornelia is in the barn chat suit dream

Reihaneh on 18 May, 2020

Dear Insa and Gusty , So thanks for you help me and barn friend. When we were bored in the houes and worried and sad for the Corona. So thanks Cornelia for the coloring pages and everything (But I cant print the coloring page because go to the printer store is sooo dangerus) Hope you and Cornelia and Guesty are good. Best wishes from Iran

It is Cornelia's pleasure, Reihaneh. Stay safe and take care

Reihaneh on 16 May, 2020

Hi Insa, dear Diana, I think you think Ali is from Iran, becuse of his name, but I think he is not from Iran, beacuse he said "I read Reckless", and the Reckless book is not in the Iran

Sophia D. Kaye on 16 May, 2020

Hi Cornelia! I have two things to tell/ask you. First, I'm an author too, and I'm currently writing a third book about a family of three, (two females and one male) and it's also about magical things, and I'm asking you for some creative ideas that I can launch into my story, because that would be fun. Secondly, since I LOVE the Dragon Rider book series, I am asking if you are writing more of that series. I know that it's crazy I am treating this as a letter but... Love Sophia D. Kaye

Dear Sophia, Cornelia is currently working on Book 3 of the Dragon Rider series. As to your first question, Cornelia's ideas come from the inside and from the outside. She collects ideas about things she is really passionate about, characters she wan...Read more

Diana on 15 May, 2020

Where are you from, Ali?

Diana on 15 May, 2020

Hello, Insa. I'm thinking, are you angry too? I think you get angry when you close the chat and the kids are still sending their words

Dear Diana, I'm afraid I do not know what you mean by "the kids are still sending their words"? Usually you should not be able to comment anymore after I closed the chat. Please let us know, if you have encountered any issues

Diana on 15 May, 2020

Hello Insa. You are a very happy person. You get emails from all over the world, you talk to most of the kids in the world, and you have a unique sister whose fantasy worlds are famous.
