Hi Emma - thank you for your question - I'm thrilled you loved LLL :-)

As to whether I'd write a sequel, I'd be tempted...I love those characters so much, I might have to give it a whirl! But I'm not giving away anything about the future! Although Aud and Leo definitely deserve a happily ever after, don't they? xx

Dear Erica - thank you for your lovely, lovely message! I'm so happy you loved Black Heart Blue and that you wrote to tell me.
It isn't inspired by any one true story - although I fear that there are too many Hephzi and Reb's in the world who have more to bear than we dare to imagine. I tried to tell a story that was important.
I would love to send you some swag - it's time I got something like that organised! Let me know where to send to and thanks again for your message! xx

Ruth Estevez is a brilliant writer. I loved her novel for young adults, Jiddy Vardy, and I was totally engrossed by this story, too - and so intrigued about where it was going. There were moments that took my breath away - quite literally - as the ch ...more

“There was no point dreaming; the leaflet was nothing more than a glass slipper handed to the ugly sister. I would never fit in there even if they'd let me go, which was a fairy tale in itself.”
Louisa Reid, Black Heart Blue

“If you hate, you lose who you are.”
Louisa Reid, Black Heart Blue

“Life could begin all over again if you were lucky enough, and I had decided to be lucky.”
Louisa Reid, Black Heart Blue

“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“I read so I can live more than one life in more than one place.”
Anne Tyler

“Because I don’t care what anyone says or how often or winningly they say it: no one will ever, ever be able to persuade me that life is some awesome, rewarding treat. Because, here’s the truth: life is a catastrophe. The basic fact of existence – of walking around trying to feed ourselves and find friends and whatever else we do – is a catastrophe. Forget all this ridiculous ‘Our Town’ nonsense everyone talks: the miracle of a newborn babe, the joy of one simple blossom, Life You Are Too Wonderful To Grasp, &c. For me – and I’ll keep repeating it doggedly till I die, till I fall over on my ungrateful nihilistic face and am too weak to say it: better never born, than born into this cesspool. Sinkhole of hospital beds, coffins, and broken hearts. No release, no appeal, no “do-overs” to employ a favored phrase of Xandra’s, no way forward but age and loss, and no way out but death.”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
