  1. Aye Trudi

    First of all I would like to thank you for the advice I gleaned off your ‘writing’section it was most helpful.
    Secondly I really liked your books, as well as being great magical yarns they are also very well laid out and the characters are memorable.

    Looking forward to reading your latest book.

    All the best. J.S.McGowan from the Black Isle Scotland

  2. Dear Trudi (what a wonderful name:3)
    I resently started with the traitor spy triology, and they’er great!! :DDD
    But I really do hope you will write more about Auraya and company.
    See you through the books ;)

    Your always faitful Lova

  3. Hey, Trudy!
    I am Swarali Kulkarni from India. I am a huge fan of your Age of the Five series. I actually became inspired and started writing books of my own. I am currently reading your Black Magician trilogy.
    I really admire you and I hope that you get billions of great ideas.
    Thank you for the great books.
    Yours,
    Swarali

  4. Hey Trudi!

    I recently started reading your books again. Starting in the wrong order apparently but thats what you get for entrusting my Nan to get the right book! I cant complain thought, I loved it never the less. The first series I started reading was the Traitor Spy Trilogy and am now I’m starting on the Magician’s Guild!

    I also very much love the website created here which helps with the insight onto the characters and your opinion. My best friend wants to start writing and I think your story will very much help her! Your books are much appreciated and constantly recommended to all my friends and Family!

    Cant wait to finish all your books!

  5. Hi Trudi,
    I remember when you first released the Magician Series.. I feel in love with the books & Characters, loved how easy they captivated me and keep my imagination running:)

    Life got in the way and I hadn’t picked up a book for quite a few years, then, your new book jumped out at me a few weeks ago and I devoured it! So now I am sad~! I have to wait for the next book….LOL

    Thank you for such wonderful stories. I hadn’t realized you had written a few more trilogy’s while I wasn’t looking… ;-)

    So now I am happy again….I have quite a bit of reading to catch up on!

    Thanks again for your wonderful stories

  6. Hi,Trudi

    I love Your books. Are You going to visit United Kingdom in the nearest future ?

  7. Hi Trudi,

    Really loved your new magical direction in Thief’s Magic! Devoured it in a weekend.

    Hope you don’t think this is a plot spoiler, but there is an article on the BBC website now you might find interesting: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27903742. Or you already knew this from your research perhaps!

    Anyway, keep writing excellent stories!!

  8. Hi Trudi, love your books. I found the Black Magician series, then Age of Five, marvellous. I am now reading Thief’s Magic on my ereader and am desperate for a map. Please, where can i find one. Have looked at you site but not been able to find
    Kindest regards, Jane

  9. Hey Trudi,

    I just finished Thief’s Magic, and I enjoyed the 2nd half of the book greatly. The first part was still very enjoyable albeit a bit confusing as I had to get acquainted with a drastic difference in the world and culture of the book. I started with The Black Magician trilogy a few years back, and you have since been one of my favorite authors together with Raymond E. Feist, Terry Goodkind and C.S. Lewis.
    I often will re-read certain parts of your books of which I am particularly fond (I.e. [spoiler removed] duel with [spoiler removed] in the Arena).
    I cannot wait for the 2nd book of the Millennium’s Rule trilogy and I wish you great creativity and inspiration for it!

    Regards,

    Alexander B.

  10. Hi Trudi,
    Absolutely love your books! The Black Magician Trilogy was the stand out books of my childhood and I have thoroughly enjoyed the seqael and prequel as a young adult, with the prequel being my favourite book of all time(love it!). Though I do have one question about it but its probably me just being dense as usual.
    I decided to check your website for any other books in the series and discovered a whole other series and the start of a new one that I didn’t know about! Completely made my day, cant wait to start the Age of Five series,am amazoning it now.
    Thankyou for inspiring the little imagination I have all these years. Hope you visit the UK soon and never stop writing,
    Mary

  11. I’m reading the first book of The Black Magician Trilogy, and I’m really enjoying!
