I have only read a few of your books, but I want to read more!!

How long have you been writing?

What do you get your ideas from for your books?

I've been writing about 7 years. I used to write mostly young adult romances. You know, lots of kissing and boo-hooing.

The truth is I don't know where I get my ideas. They just sort of pop into my head. Of course in some cases they're ideas I've picked up from books or TV. I wish I knew where ideas come from, I'd go there and get more.

You know what would be fun? Have Rachel or Marco morph a rabbit, have Tobias not know it was them and decide to try and make them his lunch. Funny scene, don't you think?

How many more Animorph books are you going to make?

Where do you get all your ideas?

Who draws the pictures on the front cover, or do you?

I've agreed to do up through Animorphs #30. I don't know how many more I'll do beyond that. I want to quit before I get boring, before readers start saying "Oh, enough already with the morphing, Katherine."

But whether that'll be book #30 or book #48 or whatever, I don't know.
