Here are some of the following questions I have for Judy Blume:
~Were you confident about your first book?
~Why did you choose to write about the unusual topics you write about?
~Did you ever get tired of being a writer? If so how old were you and why?
~Is the book coming out in June your last book?
~How did you decide to be a writer?Did your parents encourage you?
~Did you have other dreams as a kid?
~What was the best thing that ever happened to you? When and where?

I am a HUGE fan of your books "Soupy Saturdays with The Pain and The Great One"and "Fudge-a-Mania". Whenever I read one of your books I can not stop reading it. When I am not reading or doing anything I read your books. I hope you make another book with Fudge and Peter that young readers like me (or anyone that likes your books, which I'm sure alot of people do.) can read.
I like Superfudge, it makes me laugh and I hope I will meet you.
Your books are simply amazing. I have read every single one, over the years, and continue to re-read my favorites, every couple of years - Are you There God, Its me Margaret, and Smart Women. Your books got me through teenage years and college, and somehow, I kept the best for last - I finally read Summer Sisters and it made my heart smile. Thank you, thank you, thank you.Hometown: Careysburg, Liberia - Age: 37 - Posted February 18, 2015 7:54 am
Currently Im in a EDUC class at Clayton State University and I have the pleasure of having you for my Author Study. Enjoyed reading "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret." And I was not aware of your book coming out in June of this year. I only thought you did YA books. I'm looking forward to reading this novel along with the other adult books.Hometown: Hampton - Age: 38 - Posted February 17, 2015 9:56 pm

Love your books and will definitely share them with my children, 5 and 2.5. Read then all when I was younger. Happy to have Googled you and to see you just celebrated your 77th Birthday. Happy Birthday. PeterHometown: Toronto - Age: 40 - Posted February 17, 2015 4:12 pm
Thank you for your amazing books. I read my first one in 1990 when i was 13. I was so shocked when i found out that some of your books had been written 20 years earlier. I've read most of them and now my oldest daughters are 11 and 9 I'm lending my books to them. Shocked to realised that are you there god its me Margaret is 45 years old and my daughters can still really relate to it today. I'm going to keep forever back for another couple of years. Thank you Judy.Hometown: puckeridge, herts, uk - Age: 37 - Posted February 16, 2015 3:45 pm

I live in the UK and for my 16th birthday (I'm now 36) my sister bought me the original painting used for the front cover design of 'Then again maybe I won't'. She bought it from the artist who visited the London bar she worked in. She forgot to get it signed though and I'd dearly love to be able to contact the artist to get it signed. Cab you help me at all?
I was not interesting in reading as a child until I hit 6th grade and found YOU. I read your books over and over and eventually branched out into other authors, but it was because of you that I started reading.
I have been a 2nd grade teacher for 16 years, sharing some of your books with my students and now I'm somewhat changing careers and becoming a high school librarian.
I just want to thank you for all the books you've written and all the children you've turned into readers throughout the years. You are a wonderful inspiration!
Happy belated birthday, Judy! I am a third grade teacher at a small school in New Jersey. While reading started out as a challenge for my students this year, the tides quickly turned when I decided to switch to novels. Upon reading the Fudge series to my students, they discovered a new love for reading. We would love to share our success with you, if you are ever up for a visit to a tiny school in your home state!Hometown: Toms River, NJ - Age: 27 - Posted February 13, 2015 7:39 pm
I read your books as a child... grew up with you! Loved your books... they were such a part of my childhood (and my husbands)....sooo excited to start sharing them with my children! Especially my old original copies.
Thank you for all the wonderful stories!
I love your books. I have your book the pain in the great one. Im going to try to read it. I bet it is good. oh and before I forget HAPPY early VALENTINES DAY. make it sweet. BYE.
Happy Birthday to one of my favorite authors of all time! I am an avid reader, former book editor, and current travel blog writer and lawyer, and your books were instrumental in fostering my lifelong love for the written word. I live in NYC and have a home in Key West, and perhaps one of these days, I will be lucky enough to bump into you. Maybe I should start carrying around my well-worn copy of "Summer Sisters" just in case!Hometown: NYC - Age: 44 - Posted February 12, 2015 4:22 pm
Happy Birthday Judy! I am a long time fan of yours. I grew up reading your books and loved all of them.
I just read in the paper today is your Birthday. Happy Birthday! When I read your name the first thing that popped into my head was your book, "It's Not The End of the World". In 1985 my ex and I split up, my son was 6 years old. We moved to a new area, first grade was at a new school. It was a very hard time. But one thing I remember is my son and I cuddled on the couch reading this book, we both laughed and cried together and your book helped. Thank You! Have a great Birthday.Hometown: East Greenbush - Age: 64 - Posted February 12, 2015 9:59 am
I have a daughter in fourth grade that really enjoys reading Judy Blume books.She would most definitely have all of your children books if we can afford them. I as her mother do appreciate the books you have written she loves them so much and they keep her occupied.Hometown: Tucson AZ - Age: 28 - Posted February 10, 2015 8:14 pm
Dear Judy, I was reading something today about Roald Dahl's daughter and thought about how fondly I loved James and the Giant Peach growing up. That immediately triggered thoughts of Peter and Fudge and Dear God it's me, Margaret. It made me look you up online and I see that I can leave you a message. My childhood was transported into another dimension because of people like you, who had the courage to put a pen to paper with their creative and wonderful stories and for that I will truly be forever in your debt. You have my gratitude for the day I got to hear my teacher read to us, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. And later, for all of your work. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for inspiring generations of people. You are appreciated.
Warmest Regards, Rhonda
Hi. I'm curious: in Blubber, was the name "Wendy" chosen deliberately to be ironic, as she's the opposite of the sweet lovable Wendy in Peter Pan?Hometown: Oxford - Age: 41 - Posted February 9, 2015 4:01 am
What I pleasure to be able to tell you about your amaizing work! I just finished reading Summer Sisters and Im at a loss of words for your ability to keep a reader digging into the book.
I have to say the ending is wonderful as it can be interpreted in so many ways after all the adventure portrayed in the book.
I can not wait to acquire the rest of your books and read them all!
Thank you for sharing your work with the world!

Hi! I was wondering how does your personal life affects your writing? By the way I love you fudge books! I think you should write about a girl in middle school who feels left behind when her friends develop before her. Thanks for considering. Also im writing a report on you so if you reply to that question with my email it would be a great help. Thanks again!Hometown: Omaha,Ne - Age: 11 - Posted February 6, 2015 11:12 am

Love Sara MHometown: Connecticut - Age: 9 - Posted February 3, 2015 7:03 am
Hello Judy, I just perused your website as part of a research exercise in my creative writing class. One of the questions posed was "who do you admire and want to emulate." Since my daughter had read and loved many of your books when she was young, your name has always been at the top of my list of favorite authors. I think your site is wonderful, easy to navigate and inspiring with lots of good information.
I also read your personal experience with breast cancer in 2012. Very touching and transparent. Writing about everyday things gives a writer more than enough material, and through it God gives us more than enough grace when those things are life altering. No doubt you have found that to be true, as well. I pray your continued good health.
So, now that I am inspired on all levels, I can tackle my two children's books, For the Love of Big Balooka and Steggie The Needy Dinosaur, with less anxiety. Both fiction based on actual events.
Thank you again for the privilege of visiting your well-thought out website. It really was a pleasure! Godspeed, Kathy

Dear Judy Blume,
I truly enjoyed spending time reading your books trough out my childhood. I truly find you to be quite the inspiration to many of today's youth, including myself. I am currently in grade 10 and have taken the initiative to write a short children's novel to sell to a number of parents or teachers interested in purchasing the book. The profits will be donated to a children's charity which is yet to be decided, while the printed copies will be donated to the Montreal Children's Hospital. I would deeply appreciate any advice if you will be willing to share. Thank you for your time, sincerity Ashley R.
do you have any siblings?Hometown: winsor - Age: 8 - Posted January 28, 2015 12:31 pm
