Writer’s Day in Maryland

Did I ever have a great time at the writer’s day in Maryland! With more than 100 kids from seven different schools gathered together at the Review & Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, it was a busy day. Groups of about 20 kids rotated through the room where I talked about writing. Writing is like building a house, I told them. Want to know how? Maybe I’ll come to your school and I can tell you all about it.

Dear Mr. Thomas

I really enjoyed you and the others at the Review and Herald. Thank you for coming. I think the Detective Zack book that I read was great. I want to get the rest of those books and read them. I liked that you could answer questions and that you talked to us about being an author. I sometimes write short stories that I will send to these magazines I get. I like writing them and I want to be an author someday.

Hi Jerry,

I just wanted to thank you one more time. It was wonderful of you to take the time to come in for our day. The students had a wonderful time. The keep talking about all the things they saw and heard that day. I think half my class is reading a Detective Zack book! Every teacher I've talked to said it was a great experience for their students. I believe this experience will go a long way in helping the kids with their reading and writing.

Thanks for all your help,

Beth Bankes, teacher

Dear Jerry Thomas,

I really like your Detective Zack books. I want to get all of your Detective Zack books and all the rest of your books. In book four (Mystery on Thunder Mountain), I really like the mystery. I like the mystery in book six too (Danger at Dinosaur Park). Thank you for coming to the Review and Herald and telling us about writing.

Dear Mr. Jerry,

My name is Rachel. I like the books called Great Stories for Kids. It was interesting when you showed us the stuff that we need for a story. It was cool that we got to meet you. You have great answers for questions. Your stories draw people to God.

Dear Mr. Thomas,

Thank you for telling us about your books. I thought it was cool when you told us that your son was the first Detective Zack. I got the Christmas Detective Zack (The Missing Manger Mystery) and so far it's great! I also had the Detective Zack and the Mystery at Thunder Mountain. It's a great book. Thank you for the bookmarks. I just want to say thank you for telling us about your books.
