  1. Macy M says:

    I’ve commented on one of your other sites (for the waterfire saga). Please don’t think I’m weird but I just discovered all of your websites. Are you coming to MA soon? I live very close to Barnes & Noble in Worcester. You are my absolute favorite author and that is saying a lot, I read so much. Most of my time is spent on GoodReads, author/book websites, watching youtube, watching movies made from book (only ones I’ve read already) or just reading.

    • Jennifer Donnelly says:

      Hi Macy: Wow, this is an old comment! Sorry — I didn’t see it earlier. No plans to tour at the moment due to Covid … but if you subscribe to my newsletter (there’s a form on my Get In Touch page), you’ll be among the first to know about my appearances!

  2. I really enjoy your books. I read the stepsisters and the Revolution, and other young adult books you have written. i am working on the tea rose saga. I read the tea rose. I am putting the other two books on hold at library. I love books with a history background.

  3. Joon says:

    Jennifer, I saw the picture of you in the beginning of the page, and I was wondering if you were standing in the Barnes and Nobles of Lynchburg, Virginia. Is what I’m thinking true?

  4. Jenelle Wilcox says:

    Hello Jennifer…We are kindred hearts..I LOVE tea, and it so happens I love Harney & Sons tea also: ) I have read the TEA ROSE Triolgy and The Stepsister…loved all of the books…you are truly a great writer and I found your subjects interesting and intriguing. I wish I could attend a signing and meet you personally, alas I live in California and your not coming my way : ( I will pray the Tea Rose Saga is adapted to the screen. I said that to me after I completed the series…a blessing to movie goers. AND, I LOVE Downton Abbey and I will be at the theater on September 20..: ) Thank you and congratulations on your new relationship with Harney & Sons, tea forever!
