1. What's New with Meg Cabot

From the Desk of
Meg Cabot

Dear Readergirlz,
 
Happy Birthday! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been SEVEN years!  You’ve blown me away by all the work you’ve done promoting literacy (especially female-centric literacy) since I last chatted with you (about my YA stand-alone, How To Be Popular).

Since then, I’ve introduced readers to several new YA and adult series (including new installments in my Heather Wells mysteries series!), as well as my first series for middle grade readers, Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls.

This seems hard to believe, too, but 2015 will be the 15th anniversary of my first YAs ever, The Princess Diariesand The Mediator: Shadowland. Time sure does fly. I like to think that those series (like your site) helped do their part to spark the current surge in popularity of YA (especially female-centric YA)!

So since 2007, I’ve also been focused on giving back to my readers all around the world, not just with books, but by contributing my income from a number of anthologies to benefit organizations like Reading is Fundamental, UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency), and the public libraries of New York City. I also donated all my proceeds from the novel Ransom My Heart by Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia (with a little help from me!) to Greenpeace.  You can read all about it here.

Anyway, like I said, keep up the great work, Readergirlz, and happy birthday! May you have many, many more.

Love,
Meg Cabot
