He is here for your questions and comments.

Hiii! I haven't been on here for ages, but I am glad to come back! Maybe some people remember me? How are you Insa and how is Cornelia? (by the way, my name is spelled Ljiljana, but I put it as Lilyana so it is easier to spell ) Hope everyone had a good break.

Welcome back, Lilyana We're all doing fine. How are you?

Does Cornelia like reading more than writing or is it the opposite?

Storytelling is even more exciting than reading

Annabeth on 14 April, 2021

Is Guesty a person? Because in the Barn Times Section, the top part where it says "Hoppy Easter Everyone", it's written Cornelia, Insa and Guesty wish you a cosy time. Please answer this. I'm very curious.

Guesty IS the guestbook, Annabeth And he is my colleague. It is also explained in our guestbook welcome message.

Insa, how much time did you take to make this website?

Oh, Reyana, I can't tell, but it definitely took us a very long time

When is the 3rd Dragon rider book going to be released?

Most probably in September, Diana.

Thank You so much insa, i really appreciate that you took the time to answer me.

Reyana Philip on 12 April, 2021

What is Cornelia's favourite mythical creature Insa? Please give your answer as well!

I guess that's still the dragon.

Arya on 11 April, 2021

Hey Insa. Did Cornelia want to become an author and an illustrator when she was growing up? Or did she have something else in mind and decided to not do it in the end?

No, not at all — she wanted to be an astronaut first! And then a pilot, and then a thousand other professions, until she understood she was a writer.
