Why write an Alice “series?”

Question:

I am 13 years old. I was just reading through the Alice website looking at comments and that’s when i thought “what made her write the Alice series?” Perhaps you could answer this question. By the way I am SO excited for the last Alice book “Always Alice” even if I’m a little sad considering it will be the last book. I have read all of the Alice books and Alice really and truly feels like one of my best friends and it’s heart wrenching to see her go but, all good things must come to an end. Alice has taught me so much since i started reading the books. The Alice series will always be my favourite series I’m sure.

I didn’t start out to write a series.  I just wanted to write a book about a motherless girl looking for a role model, and then readers and reviewers asked for more.  I’m so glad you enjoy the Alice books.
