Are you doing an AUTHOR STUDY or a BOOK REPORT?
Then you’ve come to the right place! This page was created especially for you.
Let’s start with a few friendly Do’s and Don’ts:
- DO explore the whole website. I designed my site with YOU in mind! The BIO page and the ABOUT ME page have tons of useful information you can use in your report.
- DO make sure to read through some of the posts on my BLOG. Lots of kids have written to me there asking for information to use in their book reports and author studies. You may find something interesting there that you can use.
- DO Google “Sarah Weeks” and/or the title of the book you’re writing about to find other sites that might provide useful information for you to use in your report.
- DO feel free to download photos you find on my website and use them in your report.
- DO make sure to read any interviews you can find. I have provided links to a couple of good ones, but you can find others on-line if you do a search.
- DO write me an e-mail at [email protected] if you have a really important or really interesting question that you simply can’t find the answer to. (Please make sure to explore the website first!)

Okay, now for a few important DON’T’s…
- Please DON’T write and ask me to answer questions that your teacher wants YOU to answer. For example: “What is the main theme in the book?” or “What is the genre of the book?” or “What do you think the author was trying to say in chapter two?” When your teacher asks these types of questions he/she is asking for YOUR OPINION, which means only you can provide the answer!
- Please DON’T write to me and ask questions like: “Where were you born?” or “What are your hobbies?” You can easily find the answers to those questions by spending a little time researching and exploring the site. Explore FIRST then write to me with questions.
- Please DON’T write to me at the last minute with the subject heading: “IMPORTANT! READ IMMEDIATELY. BOOK REPORT DUE TOMORROW! HELP!!!!” We all leave things to the last minute sometimes but my advice is start early! I will try to respond to your e-mail as soon as possible, but remember authors are busy people too.
I hope that you will find everything you need on the site to help you write a great report.
