Where is my email address?

In the interest of protecting my writing time, I’ve taken my email address down and won’t be responding to reader emails for the foreseeable future. If you need information for a report for school, please read my Frequently Asked Questions and About pages. Most of your answers can be found there. I am truly sorry for the inconvenience, but this is the only way I can make time to write, as well as take care of myself and my family. If you have a burning question, feel free to send it in a snail mail letter.

Currently, my reply time for letters is 2-4 months. Please keep this in mind if you’re writing to me for a school project. At this time, I do not offer signed materials, autographs, or photos.
