  1. Hi Alyx
    I was wondering if you would make more books about the Drakes+would u be able to make one about Solange traveling the world
    would you make a book to do with solange and lucy again but with Quinn,Hunter,Conner,Christabel,Logan,Isabeau and who couldn’t forget Liam and Helena, I know its alot to ask but what mean is give them each their own theiir own chapter like you usually do
    Sorry for asking all you all this its just love your books so so much I am your NO.1 fan and im only 12
    Thanks Alot Alyx 🙂 😉

  2. Hi Alyxandra, Im Emily and im a huge fan of your series the Drake Chronicles and i was wondering if you were making anymore extras to the Drake Chronicles. And also if you had any advise for me about writing because im writing my first book. THANKS!! 😀

      1. I would love for Lucy and Nicholas to have there own series. i think it would b amazing to know whats going on when Sol is away. And all the things she discovers in her travels. I think it would be adorable to know how Lucy And Nicky get along without Sol. Also how Sol and Kerian are doing. A series filled with that would be brilliant. Anyway u have my vote for a expanse of the wonderful series lots of love and support Christen.

  3. Hi Alyxandra, My younger sister is a huge fan, she has read every book so far in the Drake Chronicles and by coincidence she is also called Lucy. She has also been writing her own short stories since she was 9 (she is now 14) however in the past she has had trouble coming up with different characters and I was wondering if you had any advice on how to come up with characters. Please can you also say a HUGE hello to her as it will make her day.
    Many Thanks,
    Suzy D. 🙂

  4. i was just wondering how you came up with the idea for the drake chronicles. I have always wanted to write a book but i never finish or go back to them. It’s almost like i get bored and i just don’t go back to writing. Most people say i am an excellent writer and even though i do really want to write and i feel that i have some great ideas its the not getting back to it that is really an issue. Do you have any advice? I would love to be an author even if its not a career choice for me. Is that the issue? It not going to be a career choice for me?

    Lindsey C.B,
