Not really a question, but a statement of appreciation. Finally got round to reading "Rich and Mad", it's just great. Pretty much perfect. I could empathise completely with all the characters, Maddy's friends, Max, Pico particularly, and both the main characters are quirky and funny and I became more and more involved in their lives.... wonderful.

William Nicholson responded:

You're one of a select few. I don't quite know why, but Rich and Mad never quite took off. I was hoping it would be read in every school in the country. So it goes.

I would love to send William nicholson an email about a very important issue. Please can I have his personal email address so I can get my message across to him. It is very important. Thanks

William Nicholson responded:

I pick up these website posts myself, but I don't really like sending out my personal email address. Can you give me some idea (via this site) what it is you want to contact me about?

This isn't really a question, but I found your site after looking for a DVD of Firelight, which I guess is only available in Chinese... Last week I watched your film in a Film Analysis class at Utah Valley University and I was thoroughly impressed. It's a really good film. Everyone had tears in thier eyes when my professor turned the light on. Anyway, I just want to say thank you. -Joe

William Nicholson responded:

And thank you, too. It's strange, isn't it, that the only DVDs seem to be Chinese-made? God knows why. I love the film, and it really pleases me that it lives on, by whatever means.

Hi Mr. Nicholson, my name is Kyle Misak and I'm a student filmmaker going to community college in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I am currently working on developing an idea I have for a film that I would like to shoot this coming spring; I have a couple of scenes written, some character bios, locations, and a long list of scene ideas, and an overall plot outline. I would love for a skilled screenplay writer to write the script, and so I was wondering if that might be something you'd consider doing? Let me know when you get a chance, thanks! -Kyle

William Nicholson responded:

I'm really sorry, but I can't help you as you ask: I'm just too busy with my own work. But you're quite right to look for another eye or mind to respond to your ideas, it really makes a difference. The truth is it doesn't have to be a professional. You'll find if you test your ideas on someone else, even the process of hearing yourself speak will affect how you regard your work - somehow it gets you out of your own head and into a place where you can be a little more objective. So don't be afraid to write your own script. Make it uniquely your own, and your film will be all the more special.

Hi, Mr. Nicholson. I am a librarian at a small rural school in North Central Florida, Branford High School. Several years ago I purchased a class set of "The Wind Singer". I have a teacher who is now begging for a class set of the other two in the series. While I am super pumped over her enthusiasm and that of the students, I cannot seem to find them in class sets without paying a fortune, which we simply do not have. Could you suggest a vendor where I can purchase 30 titles of each?

William Nicholson responded:

I've passed this query on to my UK publisher. They tell me they'll chase up the US publisher, and failing that, sort you out themselves. Let me know if it works.

Hi I contacted you a couple of times before to say I loved your Sussex trilogy and Motherland (6th September 2012, and March 18th 2014), and just read your Begonias blog where you say you have space for paintings. I have done a lot of paintings (my website is Please do have a look and if you like any, let me know which. They're currently in an attic in storage and aren't going anywhere, and I would much rather one of them could find a home with you and hopefully give you some of the pleasure I've had from your books. I know this sounds a bit unorthodox, but it's sincere....Best wishes, Nick

William Nicholson responded:

I've taken a look at your paintings and they're great. I'd love to do an art swap. I'll get in touch direct.
