Lauren Tarshis : author

Hello dearest readers!

 

 

I can’t tell you how excited I am to be here with you! How I wish I could fly around the country and meet all of you in person. (I’d have to bring my entire family, and of course my dog, Roy). Until that day comes, we can chat right here. I want to hear your ideas, your questions, and any thoughts you have about my I Survived books, such as:

 

 

• What topics do you want to read about?

 

 

• Who are your favorite characters?

 

 

• Are there any fascinating facts you can share about some of the topics I’ve written about?

 

 

I’m pretty much always researching, writing or at least thinking about one of my I Survived books. The truth is that they are VERY hard to write! What makes it all worthwhile is being able to connect to readers like you. Can’t wait to chat!

 

 

Lauren

Historical fiction is VERY hard to write. Every time I try to write a historical fiction book, it turns in a science-fiction-fantasy story. I'm trying to write a book about ninja and samurai during the time of the Tenshou Iga War, when most of the ninja were wiped out. So far, it's pretty realistic. Then again, I'm on page 1.....XD

 

Anyway, I enjoy reading your I Survived books. The one about the Battle of Gettysburg is one of my favorites. My favorite character is Chet from the Shark Attacks of 1916 book. :)

 

I would like it if you wrote a book that took place in the time of the samurai, but it might be hard to find a disaster to write about. Personally, I consider the Tenshou Iga War to be a disaster because so many ninja were killed, but....

Hello Lauren,

I love your books!!! My favorite is the one about the sinking of the Titanic. That is so sad,right? I wanted to know could you write a book on the Empress of Ireland? It is like the Titanic. 

Thanks for reading.....Rayna, North Carolina

Dear Lauren, I have read ALL of your books and am looking forward to reading your newest book. I love them! My favorite is the shark attacks of 1916. It was the first one I read, and it is also the book with my favorite character, Chet. My teacher gives us the Storyworks magazines and I love it as well.

Lauren,

 

I really, really, adore your books! I've only read a few of them, cause I have to check them out from my local library, but I think my favorites are the Shark Attacks, Hurricane Katrina, and the Nazi Invasion!

Maybe you could write one about the yellow fever epidemic, or maybe the cholera epidemic?

Friends come and go, like the waves of the ocean. But the true ones stay like an octopus on your face!

 

And I don't want the world to see me

Cause I don't think they'd understand

When everything's meant to be broken

I just want you to know who I am!

Dear Mrs. Tarshis:

 

I'm Hayden, and I've written a historical fiction book. Once it's published, would you mind reading it?

 

 

Sincerely,

 

Hayden

Hi my name is Eliza Hedman and my favorite book you wrote was I survived the shark Attack of 1916 because my favorite animal is a shark. My favorite events are when the captain tell his stories about when he was shipped wrecked and he saw a cold shark about to go in for the kill. I admire how you put the events in order like the conclusion and the introduction.

Hi Lauren, I have read three of the books in the I Survived series (Great Chicago Fire, The Shark Attacks of 1916, and The Attacks of 9/11) and I can't wait to read more! I am from Pennsylvania and I would like to read about the Johnstown flood. I enjoy reading historical fiction. It is a fun way to learn history. 

From, Breanna
