    Much love, young student aspiring to be an author.

    Hi ER Murray. Well I wanted to send you a letter because I have been reading your series but i don’t really know how yet. You were at my school this week in Clare but I was sick and didn’t get a chance to see you. If you could show me somewhere I could send you the letter I would be more than grateful.
