    • Jess, thank you so much for your comment! There are two – **2** – new Treadwell Academy books coming out in January. The first is about Emma, the daughter of a fashion retail icon who rockets to fame as a model and then is crushed when her own father’s team “fires” her as their catalog cover girl, and the second is about Grace, the daughter of a famous televangelist who runs away with her brother to New York after a scandal threatens their father’s empire. I am super psyched for them to hit the market and they’ll not only be available this winter on Smashwords and iBooks but in print, too! Happy Holidays!

    • As many others I loved the Rock stars daughter. If all your other books are as good as these, I can assure you you will get plenty of new fans.

  • Allie

    I just read the rock star’s daughter. It was a great read! I finished it in 1 night! Looking forward to the next book in the series!!!

  • Catie Lor

    Omgosh! Zoomed through that wonderful book! I got this iPod as a present from my boyfriend :) I got to use it to pass the time threw Christmas traveling and I spent all of it reading your awesome story! I can’t wait to hear more!! 2 more books eh!! I’ll make sure to buy them! Big fan, Canada,ON Ottawa.

  • Autumn Conner

    I loved “The rockstars Daughter” and I would love to read more about Taylor ! Taylor connects to me in so many ways and I won’t stop reading the book ! I read it a good 2 times because I loved it . I think I won’t read anything else but your books!!

    • Oh my goodness, Autumn! I am so flattered, I don’t know what to say! Thank you so much for reading my book and visiting my blog. I hope to have two more Treadwell books out in January (Taylor is mentioned in both but they’re about the lives of other girls who attend the school). I sincerely hope they live up to your expectations! I am certain I will be writing more about Taylor soon; she has a special place in my heart and seems to have struck a chord with a lot of readers. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

      • Autumn Conner

        I wouldn’t change anything you put in the book! To me it was pure genius and thank you for having a character so realistic to me. I feel as I have never been closer to a character in a novel before! And I can’t wait for the books on the other girls and more Taylor!

  • Alexandria Karpacs Brown

    I absolutely loved the rock star’s daughter!!!! i read it on my ipod and i couldnt stop! i love to read and write stories, and im thinking that maybe one day writing will be a side job for me. Cant wait to read your new stuff. Hope to read more about taylor and todd :)

  • Dale Blackwell

    Wow..
    Finished ‘The Rockstar’s Daughter’ just moments ago, brilliant.
    It’s the first book i have read in over 14months since I finished high school, could it get more addictive??!!!
    Such a fabulous book I really look forward to what happens in the series :-)
    (I’m a guy – still an awesome book)

  • Gabby

    I just finished reading The Rock Stars Daughter and I absolutely loved it! Now I can’t wait till you release the second two books in the series, and I was just wondering if you knew the exact date they would be released? :)

    • Hi Gabby! Thanks for your note. The books are done, being printed, so it will be possible this winter to buy paperback copies if you’re interested (they’ll also be on Amazon, BN, iTunes, etc)! But… there’s a chance we might delay releasing them by a few weeks to give bloggers a first crack at reviewing them since they typically refuse to review books that are already on the market :( We may release the first chapters early just to keep readers in the loop because the response to the first book in the series has been so exciting!

  • Ok. I’ve read two books on my iPhone so far. The Rockstars Daughter and The Trouble With Spells. They both kept me reading to the end but where trouble seemed to be poorly put together with unrealistic dialogue and many other problems, Daughter was just great. I really felt for all the characters. You conveyed emotion really well I’d love to see another book dedicated to Margeret in the future!

  • Hey Caitlyn! I just finished your book, it’s was awesome! It’s the first book I’ve finished in a looooong time just to read for pleasure. Anywho, I could not get the character of Chase in my head. I kept trying to picture a real rock star but nobody fit the description. Who were you thinking of while writing the book? The only one I could imagine was Steven Tyler. lol

    Thanks!

    • Hi Michelle,
      When I was writing the book, I imagined Chase as kind of a handsome post-90’s glam band front-man. Sort of a hybrid of Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Ray Cyrus with maybe a dash of Tommy Lee from Motley Crue thrown in. I hope that helps! Thanks for your note.

  • Sarah

    I just finished reading your book, it was amazing! I don’t think I paid attention in any one of my classes today, my eyes were glued to my iPhone secretly hidden underneath my desk! I started the book last night and couldn’t stop reading it, it was so good!! Can’t wait to buy it in a paper version, and I’ve already told all my friends to check it out!

    Huge fan!
    -Sarah may

    • Hi Sarah,
      thanks so much for your comments! But I have to reprimand you for reading during school. What will become of you if you don’t pay attention in class and become a grown-up who doesn’t know the name of the ancient capital of Sumeria or how to do stuff with the cosign rule? That would be a tragedy! J/K :)

    • Paperbacks become available the middle of next week on Amazon! If you send me back your mailing address, I’ll keep the post hidden and send you one of my personal copies – I haven’t promised all of them away yet.

  • Luka Makhviladze

    Amazing book really, love it. I’m sure I will read all your books but can you recommend me anything for now? Book like yours.

    Thanks

    • Hi Luka,
      I just finished reading “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight” by Jennifer E. Smith and it was awesome. So romantic! I’d also recommend “What Happened to Goodbye” by Sarah Dessen (or pretty much anything Sarah Dessen has ever written). I also love, love, love The Opposite of Invisible and My Not-So-Still-Life by Liz Gallagher about super cool teens in Seattle.
      Thanks for your message!

  • Mel

    I just downloaded the free iBook “The Rockstar’s Daughter and was so pleased with the book. The last 6-7 chapters were so honest, real, and relatable. As a 17 year old I have not read a book so honest in so long. It was breathtaking to read a story so right on to relationships and boys. I truly loved the book.

  • Mel

    I just finished reading “The Rockstar’s Daughter” and I was very pleased. The last 6-7 chapters are so honest, relatable, and real. It was breathtaking to read. As a 17 year old I have not read a book that has been so keen on relationships and boys in soo long. I truly loved Taylors honest voice. Great book, and amazing ending.

  • Shelly Tomlinson

    I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed “The Rock Star’s Daughter.” I am a high school teacher, about to have back surgery, and I’ve been reading A LOT of YA ebooks through iBooks. I thought yours was very well written and enjoyable. I will definitely recommend it to my students.
    Thanks

  • Cinde

    Hi Mrs. Duffy
    Omg i loved reading “The Rockstar’s Daughter”! I love reading books liike this. I get lost in them and seemed to put them down not even to take a break. This book is deffently going on to my collection of books. I have recommended it to my peers and wrote about it in my FB to my friends. So far the ones that read it love it as well and changed opinions about when we get together. I can’t wait to start reading the rest of your books!

  • Grace

    Hi Caitlyn!!!!!!!
    I just finished reading the rockstars daughter and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!!!! U made the characters so relatable it was like I was there……. I definatley NEED to getting book 2 & 3!!!!! anyways thanks for writing awesome books!!!!

  • KerryM

    Hi, my name is Kerry and I’m from Scotland. i have just finished your book; The Rock Star’s Daughter. I thought it was amazing and can’t wait to read other books from you. :) xx

  • Mairi xxx

    Hi Caitlin, i have just read The Rockstars Daughter, it is amazing!!!!!!!!!! Just wondering if there is going to be any more books about Taylor and what happens next with her family. (and with Todd!!!!!) love you xxx

    • Hi! Thanks so much for your note. Yes, I’m working on a sequel to the Taylor story that will take place on the Treadwell campus and feature more about Todd. I’m also working on a story about Betsey Norfleet, and Taylor plays a huge role in that story, too!

      • Mairi xxx

        thats amazing!!!!!! i cannot wait till the books come out!!!!! :) idont want to ask you a lot of questions but will it get published in the UK? xx

        • Hi Mairi – I think so. The books should always be accessible on Amazon & iTunes as e-books if you’re in the US, Australia, Canada, or the UK. My publisher is trying to work out some deals with booksellers in those countries to carry the actual paperbacks :)

  • Jess

    Hey Caitlyn! I loved The Rockstars Daughter it was amazing! I was wondering when does book 3 come out on itunes? Also what is the bame of book 4?
    Thanks!

    • Hi Jess,
      thanks for your note! Book #3 is The Tycoon’s Daughter (Emma Jeffries) and an extended FREE preview is going to be available on iTunes any week now… but probably if I had to guess… about 3 weeks from today (iTunes is slow)! The name of book #4 is The Viscount’s Daughter and it’s all about Betsey Norfleet (from The Rock Star’s Daughter). If you belong to wattpad.com (it’s also free) there are intros to both books there. I think you can google and read those without having to join the site. Enjoy! And then… a Taylor sequel.

  • Kendra

    Hi Caitlyn~
    I can’t tell you how much I absolutely LOVE your books!!! I downloaded them both on iTunes and read them both in just a day! The characters you created were amazing! I thought Taylor and “Gigi’s” story were so unique and open and amazing and I could relate to them in a weird way, it was so incredible! Seriously can’t wait to read the following books! I love you!!!! xox

  • Donna Kiesel Finch

    Hi Caitlyn, I don’t fit into your target readers’ age demographic but I wanted to tell you that I “fit” into the stories you write just fine! I spent four years at a private girls high school in Stamford, CT which had all the types of girls you profile in your books. Although we went home each night, some of us went home to modest abodes and some of us (not me!) got picked up by the family chauffeurs driving Lincoln Town Cars. You write the truth about girls and girls schools! Whew! You also write the truth about living alone in NYC and the courage it took to do what Grace (Gigi) and Aaron (Eric) did in their mid-teens…my Mom ran away to NYC from rural Pennsylvania when she was fourteen…and the year was 1929! Please keep writing your wonderful, thought provoking, stories. My Kindle is all charged up and ready to read your next tale. I am recommending your books to all my cousins as they will identify with them also. More old people reading “young adult” books!

    • Hi Donna, thanks so much for your note! I definitely try to convey in the books that while money certainly solves some problems, it creates a whole bunch of new ones, which is a perspective I didn’t have when I was in private school. My entire high school career was all about jealousy! I feel like teens today are immersed in a very wealth-obsessed culture, and there aren’t many sources of entertainment that accurately detail how overwhelming wealth and fame can be for kids who really grow up with those luxuries. I seriously cannot imagine running away to New York City in 1929… what a wild story your mom must have had! I’m so glad you enjoy the books and the next 2 will be released soon (followed by the Taylor sequel about her junior year).

  • HI Caitlyn,
    I read few young adult novels, but somehow I acquired Rock Star Daughter on my kindle and I am so glad I did. Superbly crafted and sympathetically written – very well done indeed! I left a review on Amazon of course and am going to buy The Believer’s Daughter now. As I am an Australian granny (and crime writer) your genre is not my normal fare, but I am delighted that I read it :)

    • Hi Diana, thank you SO MUCH for your note and your awesome Amazon review! I really appreciate it, and am so happy that you enjoyed the book. It’s always nice to hear from fellow writers, especially when they aren’t completely turned off by YA reading material :)

  • Chloe

    Hi Caitlyn just wondering if the third book is out on iBooks now because I loved both of your other books. I hope you will keep writing for kids my age because I think loads of people love your books. I am recommending it to all my friends! :)

    • Hi Jayde, I’m hard at work on a sequel to the Taylor book, and it will include Allison, Todd, Betsey Norfleet… and Jake! However, it might not be available until the fall, so stay tuned! :)

  • chloe

    just finished reading the first chapter of number #3 in 2 minutes :) its just building me up for the rest of the book :)

  • chloe

    i keep forgetting to say things in my comment so… make sequel of grace and felix i absolutely loved it and am constantly wishing i had a boyfriend like felix :)

  • maura frances

    Miss. Duffy,
    The Rock Star’s Daughter was by far my favorite book!!! It had a fantastic theme and storyline! You are such a wonderful writer and I can’t wait to read more of your books!!
    Thanks :)

  • Hi! I’m a mom of a tweenager, a high school teacher, and an avid reader of all types of book genres. I have to say honestly, your book was really great! I downloaded The Rock Star’s Daughter for free on iBooks and it sucked me right in. Despite being a grown woman now it brought me right back to the time of growing and finding yourself and the type of person you want to be. It was the kind of book I’d like for my young daughters to read. Just wanted to say Congrats on your series…. How exciting :)

  • DF

    Rock Star’s Daughter is the best book I have read in a really long time. It is such a page turner! It reads like a biography and the characters just jump off the page. I downloaded it for free from Amazon – I do hope you get some royalties from it!

  • Elizabeth B

    Rock star’s daughter was the first book I have read on my kindle so far. It was so good I would like to be notified of other books u will be writing! I am a teen myself and this book inspired me! I love your writing. This book is on the top of my list I couldn’t put it down.

  • Mo Hudson

    I love to read more than anything, but your books are movie and TV worthy. I could easily envision an MTV series of the Treadwell Academy playing a different book each season or around the time of school breaks or as a full series on a network like CW. Have you considered or thought about that prospect? Your writing is more than a YA niche, I am um..considerably older and think you could reach a broader market. You acutally have something to say and value to offer and could reach a wider audience. Please take this under consideration if it doesn’t go against some personal belief about your wonderfully written word being tainted by TV or film. I have no idea how you would go about it but an agent would so get one or get yours on it. The worst they could say was no, just like the ones who told JK Rowling or Stephanie Myers no, and I bet thet naysayers regretted the no more than either of those two authors ever did. For me, you are up, up there with great Judy Bloom the writer I grew up reading and adoring and even her books have been in the film and TV media. Sorry to be pushy, but your that good.

    • Thank you so much, that is such generous feedback! I would *love* to bring Treadwell to the big or little screen. Right now I’m working on a book that’s totally unrelated to Treadwell, and I may very well be pursuing a deal to take it beyond the page! :)

  • Hey,Ms.Duffy, i love the rockstar’s daughter.i think that is it better than the four books of twilight.I just want to tell you,thanks for writing the books and great work,i appreciate it(by the way,every time i read your book its gets better)?

  • Jenny

    Wow….ur writing is amazing….I couldn’t put down ur book….u made me keep on wanting to not give up on my short stories….thank you for writing with so much heart! Can’t wait to read through the rest of ur books and the sequel to Rockstar’s Daughter!
    -Jenny

  • Hannah

  • Natacha

    Hi, just wanted to let you know that i love your book the rockstars daughter i couldn’t stop reading it. I will now start reading the two other ones. Im usually not a reader and didn’t think the ibooks would come in handy but after reading this it is. I would love to hear about taylor again maybe a second novel about her life now at school and her love life with todd :) thanks again for making such good books

  • Fanny sitanggang

    I did enjoy Rock Star’s Daughter that I read from iTunes but right at the end I noticed what seems to be an editing error. After the concert she sees:

    “and see Tanya and Kelsey sitting in the front row, clapping like maniacs”

    I think you mean Jill, not Tanya. Maybe the e-version can be fixed.

  • Rachel

    Caitlyn-
    I read all three of your treadwell academy books and I love them!!! You are an extremely talented writer(: I was just wondering if you based any of your characters off famous people because for some reason while reading “the viscounts daughter” it felt like Betsey and bijoux were the Jenner sisters(: just wondering!!!! And all or nothing was one direction(: Hahaa but thanks for doing what you do(: big fan<3

    • Hi Rachel,
      Thanks for your note! I draw a lot of inspiration from real people, but never base a character entirely on one real celebrity. The Norfleet sisters were based loosely on the Hilton sisters, the Courtin-Clarins sisters, and the daughters of Keith Richardson. NYC has an abundance of pretty sisters who often find themselves invited to the best parties, and get themselves into plenty of trouble! If I was ever going to shape a character around one of the Kardashians it would be Khloe; I think she’s so funny and I thought she was really smart when she was on The Apprentice! And All or Nothing is totally based on One Direction, quite honestly, because I love them. I haven’t had an opportunity yet to really go into the personalities of the boys in the band, but don’t be surprised if one of the Treadwell girls (maybe one who happens to also be British?) falls in love with one and makes her best friend very jealous!

  • Jo

    Hi, I am a 33 year old Mummy and I loved the Rock Stars Daughter. Well done. I can’t wait to read the next ones.
    I loved the Baby Sitters Club too in my day.

  • Erin

    Hi Caitlyn I have read the Rockstars Daughter and the Believers Daughter and I am now reading the Vicounts Daughter. I have really, really enjoyed this series and I would love to know if you are writing any more simular books. I had just finished a big series and I was looking for something light to read and I am so glad that I found the Treadwell Academy series. I love the books and would love to know if there are more! I love your work and I am a BIG fan :)

  • Hi Erin,
    the next books in the series are about Emma Jeffries (the Hunter Lodge model who everyone at school despises) and the sequel to the Taylor book, in which Taylor faces the grief she feels over her mom’s death, and watches her father struggle with rehab. Of course, Todd and Allison are both back in that book… and don’t be too sure you’ve seen the last of Jake (if you’re reading The Viscount’s Daughter, you may already know where he resurfaces)!
    After that, I’m quite open to suggestions. I have outlines written for every girl mentioned in the series, it’s just a matter of figuring out whose story to tackle next! So if you have any favorites, let me know… at present I’m leaning toward either Ameerah or Nicola.

  • michelle

    Please please please please make a follow up book on Kelsey, when she is older. This would be extremely interesting, her struggling with her allergies and stuff. Please consider, we would all be extremely happy!

  • Hello, my name is Michaela (Mishayla). I am reading The Rock Star’s Daughter, and I really enjoy it. I’m twelve years old. I love to read, and I like to try new authors. I didn’t think this book would be good, but I guess that’s what I get for thinking. lol. I really love this book, I find it hard to stop reading. I am going to read your other books too. I want to encourage you to keep writing, because you are really good at it and I think there are a lot of people out there in the world that would love to read.more of your books!

      • Hi Michaela! Thanks so much for your notes! If you’ve just finished reading The Rock Star’s Daughter, it might make sense to read The Viscount’s Daughter next because that story begins when Betsey and Bijoux leave Taylor in Virginia Beach. The Believer’s Daughter starts at the end of that summer, when school begins at Treadwell. All of the stories overlap somewhat, and you’ll recognize characters in each of them. I hope that helps!

  • Erika

    Caitlyn,

    I just started (and finished) The Rock Star’s Daughter today and I absolutely loved it. Taylor was so relatable and easy to like and her relationship with Jill-oh my God I loved it. I would also love to see more of Kelsey, she was pretty freaking adorable.

    Thank you for this book, I’m on my way to go look for the next two as well!

    Best wishes,
    Erika

    • Hi Erika!
      Thanks so much for your note. It makes me so happy whenever a reader connects with Jill because I wanted her to start out really unlikable as a character, and for her to become beloved to Taylor by the end of the story. The Viscount’s Daughter is a little bit of a continuation of the Taylor story because Betsey’s life overlaps with Taylor’s, but I’m also working on a sequel bringing back everyone from the first story… even Allison!

  • Jennifer

    I love you and your books so much! You’re my favorite author by the way and I hope you never stop writing treadwell academy serie. I can relate to hose characters in such a big way. I can’t wait for more to come out! I love you and by the way Taylor and Betsey are my favorite. The friendship they had was enviable. My fav part of The Viscount’s Daughter was when they went to Madrid and Betsey found out that Jake was in Madtid the same time as Todd! Please continue eritting books like these.

    • Hi Jennifer, I’m so glad you enjoy the friendship between Betsey & Taylor! When I was in high school, I was always kind of flattered when any girls at school who were older than me wanted to be friends, and that was the dynamic that I wanted to set up between them. The Jake storyline with Taylor will be continued in the Taylor sequel. I think you can probably guess what’s coming: will Taylor choose Todd, or does Jake stand a second chance now that he’s back in her life?

      • Gisselle

        I can’t wait for the new book of Treadwell Academy to come!! My life has change so much since I read these books because I tjouht I was the only girl who wnt threw all of these struggles and problems but now I see there’s someone (even thouh it’s made up) who has the same problems as I do. Please never stop writong tis serie. I love you and you are my favorote author! Bestsey and Taylor were my favorite. I loved hem and I loved how Taylor was in Madrid while Jake and Todd were there too. I can connect to Taylor and Bestsey so much and specially in ther friendship! I love your books and can’t wait for another want to come! Blessings :)

  • Jessica

    Hi Caitlyn! I just finished reading “The Rockstar’s Daughter,” and I absolutely ADORED it. You write with such ease and skill that I could only hope to match one day. :) You see, I really want to be an author (like you!), and I was wondering if you had any bits of advice or tips on how I can make it in the business and be a successful writer. I loved Taylor’s character and her journey, not to a destination, but, rather, to the starting line of a new life. Thanks for writing such an awesome novel, and I can’t wait to get my hands on your other books! Hope to hear from you soon! :)

    ~Your roadie,
    Jessica

    • Hi Jessica, thank you so much for your note! I would recommend to anyone who wants to write to just write, write, write. I workshop story ideas on Wattpad all the time, and I’m constantly jotting down outlines. The Rock Star’s Daughter was actually based on an outline I wrote years before I found the motivation to write the rest of the story. Like many fiction writers, I balance a full-time job with my writing, and making time to write is a commitment. So write whenever you can, and whenever you’re particularly inspired, make the time to get it done. If that means firing up the DVR to watch your favorite shows when you have less creative energy, or reserving Saturday nights for going out so that Friday night can be a writing night… then that’s what it takes! Also, whenever you can get feedback on your work, take advantage of it. That’s the beauty of Wattpad for me: receiving instant feedback. Best of luck to you and keep in touch!

  • erin

    I found the rockstars daughter on itunes the other day and have fallen in love with series! ive read all of the three books twice and they always give me the same thrill. when will tycoons daughter be on itunes because ive read whats on wattpad and love it! i completely love graces chartacter and how she is so strong and changes so much but still manages to keep her faith. You are such a great writer and thankyou so much for these great books!

  • Malcolm

    I just read the rockstars daughter and I couldn’t help but cry at the end to see how everything came together. Great book; I must read more of your work :)

    • Hi Malcolm and thanks for your note! The endings are always the easiest to write because I know how I want the story to wrap up as soon as I start telling it. It’s the journey to the end that’s the hard part! I’m glad you enjoyed it :)

  • Gisselle

    I love Treadwell Academy books! I never want to stop reading them, and please never ever stop writing books. I just love the relationship between Taylor and Betsey because it is like my friendship with my friends. One of my favorite parts was when Taylor was in Madrid at the same time as Todd and Jake. I just can’t wait to read the Tycoon’s Daughter! I love you and your books. Reading them changed my opinion in my life because I thought I was the only one who went threw this struggles and problems. But now that I read this books I see that the main characters even thouh they are made up, they have some of the same problems as I have. Please try to make more books :) It would be cool to read about Kelsey, just a suggestion ;)8

    • Hi Gisselle,
      Your note made my day! I am so profoundly happy that you enjoy the books so much. There’s more about Kelsey in the Taylor sequel, which will be available soon. And I’m totally open to requests for stories about other characters, too!

      • Gisselle

        Oh my god thankyou! I’m literally cying right now when I saw your response! I think it would be cool for you to write a book only for Kelsey when she grows up! Anothrr suggestion is it would be cool to read about Nicola, just to see what her life is really about just wanted to tell you even though it’s not important I’m from Honduras and assist to EIS (Escuela Internacional Sampedrana) Your response made my day, thankyou!

  • Gisselle

    Oh my god thankyou! I’m literally cying right now when I saw your response! I think it would be cool for you to write a book only for Kelsey when she grows up! Anothrr suggestion is it would be cool to read about Nicola, just to see what her life is really about just wanted to tell you even though it’s not important I’m from Honduras and assist to EIS (Escuela Internacional Sampedrana) Your response made my day, thankyou!

    • Hi again Gisselle,
      I am very intrigued by Nicola and I think I probably will pick up her story at some point. It’s my dream for her to fall in love with a Harry Styles-type of pop star! I’ve never been to Honduras, but my friend Adam was born there and tells me it’s beautiful. If there’s ever anything I can do to to support EIS, please let me know! It seems like a very cool school :)

    • Hi there, I’m not sure exactly when the Emma book and the Taylor sequel will be coming out. I’m having difficulty getting through the editing process with both because I have a regular day job that’s become pretty tough in terms of time management lately. But I’m working away at both!

  • Savannah Chandler

    Will there be a sequel to “The Rock star’s Daughter? Please let there be! I loved the book. Todd sounds like a real genuine guy and I can’t wait to see how things work out between him and Taylor <3 Once again, thank you for writing such a well laid out-over all totally-super-amazing-head banging novel!!! (See what I did there? Haha) ¡Gracias! ¡Chou!

        Wow! Thank you. I totally thought that Jake was out of the picture… mind…blown! I’m actually looking forward to hearing from him again.
        It’s weird, my BEST friend’s name is Allison, and I used to like (okay, I was infatuated) her older brother…don’t worry, we are still the best of friends 😀
        Also, thank you for taking the time to respond to a small town girl like me (not many authors do that)! <3

    Hi Caitlyn, I read The Rockstars Daughter a while ago, and I fell in love with your style of writing and the character of Taylor. I purchased the second book and was a little disappointed that it wasnt about Taylor. And then I started to read about Grace. Oh. My. God. (pun intended). This story was so much richer and the challenges facing the main character were so..real. I love love love this book. I love Grace’s strength. I love her realizations. I’m not even a religious person, and this is by far my favorite book!! I still like Taylor, but compared to Grace’s funky cool world (and cute russian tattoo artist bf), she’s so boring!!! I cant wait to read the book about Emma Geoffries!! You are awesome!

    • Hi Lyssa, thanks so much for your note! I really wanted to write a story about a girl experiencing New York City with fresh eyes, just like I did when I moved here when I was just a little older than Grace. I also really wanted to write a story about a girl who shares a really special bond with a sibling, because I think that’s a relationship to which a lot of people can relate. I’m trying to wrap up the Emma book as quickly as I can! :)

  • remi

    when will emma’s story be out on itunes. i read some of it on wattpad and i am dying for some more! i read all of your other books (2000 times) and I am in love!!!!!!!!

  • Chrissy

    I absolutely loved your first book! I haven’t read the other two but I will! I had to read a book for and independent reading program for English, I’m happy I choose this book!

  • Austyn

    I love your book The Rock Stars Daughter…I could not put it down…I wish I could read more of your books…but unfortunately have to stick to free books. It was absolutely a book I would recommend. I love this book and have learned a lesson from it.

  • Kaitlyn

    I just finished yur book and I started it this morning! The Rockstars Daughter is an amazingly awesome book! I can’t wait to read the rest !

  • enari Lawson

    the rockstars daughter is the best book ive ever read and ive read alot of books and thats the best out of all of them i cant wait to read the rest and i was cryin when jake did all that mean stuff to her then i was about to jump out of my skin when todd kissed her that was the best part of the whole book and i hope that Allison becomes her friend again and u r the best author in the WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Hi Enari,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! I’m really glad you enjoyed The Rock Star’s Daughter. There’s been a lot of interest in Allison, and I’m working on a spin-off series all about her. She and Taylor have been best friends since they were little girls, so I think they will most likely reconcile :)

  • Ashley D'Archangelo

    Hi! I found the rockstars daughter on my kindle before I left for vacation and thought it would be a perfect beach read and it was!! I spent most of my vacation reading and I absolutely loved the book! The book was so well written it was like I was there in it with taylor! Being an artsy person and taking aTV studio class I couldn’t help but imagine it as a movie. I even started writing a script in my mind! I’m sure it would go anywhere but my computer (and if I show my teacher) considering I’m only 15. But I would like to thank you for writing such a good and inspirational book and making script writing fun (let me tell you it can be horrible!)

    • Hi Ashley! It’s so totally awesome that not only do you get to take a TV studio class at the age of 15, but also that you thought enough of The Rock Star’s Daughter to envision it as a movie. It would be a dream come true for me if the Treadwell books ever made their way on to the big (or small) screen. If it ever happens, now I know who to contact for help writing the script!

  • Kimberly

    I know this book was written for teens but at 27 I LOVED IT! I can’t wait to read more Treadwell books and you’ve even encoraged me to finish my half written novel…great work Ms. Duffy; you’re about to BLOW UP!! lol 😉

  • Megan Nations

    Read the rock stars daughter absolutely heart wrenching, I must say it’s one of my favorites you are such a good writer..I was wanting more of that book so bad I got so into it and never wanted it to end. And come to my surprise I can’t believe I found the viscounts daughter. I begged to get this on my kindle as well. If was one of the most exiting visual books. The books had me in suspense I couldn’t put it down!!..the way things turned out surprised me it made me cry reading some of the pages of the love and the heartbreak of being in that situation really tugged at my heart. I cannot wait to see your book in the theaters! Don’t ever stop writing Caitlyn you definitely have a gift. Now for the final book!

  • Heather

    I love your books and am hoping that you are going to write more of the series. I am really looking forward to the new book!

  • Bella Wilson

    Hi Ms. Duffy. My Name is Bella. I would like to tell you that I absolutely adore your books. I have red the tredwell trilogy like 500 times and I wanted to let you know that your books really have helped me a lot growing up. I am turning 15 soon and I am so excited for your new book release. Thank you for being such a blessing in my life. Xoxo

    Bella Wilson(:

  • I love your book the rock stars daughter I read it all in a day I loved the parts about jake the last part about jake ruined my heart :( can you do something like a part two

    • Hi there, Kiana! I’ve been slowly working on a sequel to the Taylor story for quite some time now. I’m not sure yet when the sequel will be done, but I’m trying really hard to have it finished before Christmas!

  • Hi Caitlyn, I am an Australian granny who loved your Rock Star’s Daughter and would also like to read a follow up on the heroine. Your first book was so darned good, I was totally impressed. I would never normally read a YA novel, but your book and Jeanne Bannon’s “Invisible,” are the exceptions and well worth my time!.

    • Hi Diana – I remember your awesome support on Amazon & Twitter last year! I’ve been working on the Taylor sequel and a side project about her friend Allison for the last year. Unfortunately (well, fortunately, I guess, because I’m thankful to have employment) I have a full-time job that’s eaten up most of my time this year. But I’m really hoping that I can get the sequel done over Christmas break this year and release it!

  • Hey Caitlyn,
    Glad to hear from you and I would love to read and review your new book when it comes out next year. I am currently steaming ahead with my latest book, After Ariel, an Australian crime novel and follow up to The Naked Room and The Celibate Mouse. Let’s hope it will be ready to come out about April at the latest. I have been hemming and hawing for the last year as I had a major cancer operation this year – four months ago – but am getting better rapidly now. It was pretty slow and “hairy” for awhile there! No chemo, no radiation so that’s good news lol My rats are well, my husband is well (after losing his gallbladder) and all is well in Boonah, Queensland, Australia :)

    Bless

    Diana, Andrew and the Furfaces xxx

  • Whitney

    Hello (: I really loved ‘the rock stars daughter’ and also ‘the viscounts daughter’ I thought that they were great books! I am 15 and I felt that it was really easy to connect to the characters of the books! I just wanted to let you know I think you are an amazing writer, and I was also wondering if there was anyway you could do a follow up for the two books?? Another thing I thought would be amazing, and I don’t know if it would be possible but I would love to see those two stories turned into a movie. I think It would turn into a great movie!! (:

    • Hi Whitney, thank you so much for your comment on my site! I’m glad you liked the Rock Star’s Daughter. I’ve been working on a sequel to the Taylor book for quite a while now. I’ve also been doing a sequel of sorts, which hints at what happens to Taylor after she goes back to school in the fall, by writing a spin-off book about Allison Burch, which should be available by January!

  • Hi Caitlyn!

    Not gonna lie, I’m about to be 27 and I found myself reading your books after I did a young adult assignment for a literature class. At first I was convinced they were just going to be another collection of mindless fiction (I could never finish the Gossip Girl series) but I was pleasantly surprised! I like how your characters deal with real-life issues, especially the inner issues that girls often deal with on their own. For example, I like how brutally honest Betsey was with herself, and how she didn’t turn into a full-fledged good-girl at the end of the novel. She knew who she was (to an extent) and it was interesting to read about her struggle “fitting in” to the world of academia. Some of the things that Betsey went through, I’m going through now, when it comes to academia!
    Anyway, I can’t wait to read the next one! Thanks for writing a great series!

    Marjorie

    • Thank you so, so much for your comment on my blog! I really set out to create something with this series that (to the best of my knowledge) didn’t exist in a modern series at bookstores when I began: a series that presents the real, serious issues that teen girls face in a fun way that doesn’t gloss over the issues or condescend to the reader. I’m *still* working on the Emma book, really grappling with making it engaging but also dealing with the topic of an eating disorder in a way that doesn’t glamorize the condition. Best of luck with your studies, and I hope you have a happy & healthy 2014!

  • I love the rockstars daughter when is the sequel going to be out? Or is it already out and if so where can I find it online to read??? You are an amazing author!! Keep it up your doing great!!! :-)

    • Hi there! Thanks for reading The Rock Star’s Daughter! The sequel’s not done yet, but I’ll probably be publishing the story about Allison Burch before the sequel. Merry Christmas!!

  • Sarah K

    Hi Caitlyn,
    I love your three books, but I do have a couple of Britpicks for the third – I think they stood out for me because I enjoyed the rest so much. Is there somewhere I can email or send you a message, or are you happy for me to put them here?
    Thanks!

  • Hello, Catilyn.
    My name is Molly. I am thirteen years old. I came upon your book in the NOOK store, and i decided to download it. I read your book, and i immediantly fell in love with it. Now, i have hopes of being a writer as well. Do you have any advice for me, as how to get a book published, edited, or just writing a great story in general? I havd linked my profile in which the book is posted, and i would fangirl hard if you read it and gave me feedback. The story in question is called “Special Agent Diamonds.”
    Thank you for your time, Catilyn.
    -Molly

    • Hi, Molly! I just gave Special Agent Diamonds a read on Wattpad and it’s wonderful! You definitely have a knack for writing action sequences and building tension. Getting books published these days is a tricky matter because the industry is in a period of rapid change. To be published by a traditional publisher, you need to find an agent, and to do that, you’re already doing exactly the right thing: writing frequently and being open to revisions suggested by your readers.
      For me, it sounds cheesy, but I always have to draw from my own personal relationships and experiences. My real dad isn’t a rock star, but like Taylor, I did find it hard fitting into a new family structure when I was a teenager. I also chose to have Taylor’s hometown be Los Angeles because it’s a city I know quite well.
      In Special Agent Diamonds, I’d love to know more about Sierra’s hometown and why Peter has chosen that place and *those* teens to become special agents. I think it’s very interesting that Sierra and Carter choose to hide their powers from their mom. Are they protecting her from the truth, or worried that she won’t believe them? And why is it significant that Sierra, of all people, to find out that she has powers? Has she always felt weak or easily overlooked at school? You mention that she’s afraid of Janelle… has Janelle bullied her? I think being named a Special Agent would have more meaning for Sierra if we understood exactly why, on a personal level, it’s such a huge reward for her to receive these amazing powers.
      Keep writing!!

  • Hi Caitlyn. I’m doing a project about you and whoever wrote holes and I’m having trouble finding stuff so I decided to come to the source. So do you mind telling me about yourself? Like your childhood and stuff like that. Thank you! (:

  • Mariah Marie

    Hi Caitlyn, I’m 13 and I came across your book, The Rockstar’s Daughter, and once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I instantly fell in love with it. I loved it so much that I decided to do my book report about it but I need some facts about you, and I figured who would be the best person to ask other than the fantastic author her self so if you could please give me a couple of facts about you, that would be awesome. Thanks(:

    • Hi Mariah! Let’s see… facts about me? My favorite place in the whole world is Bermuda. If I ever become filthy rich, I will try to buy a house there. I live in Brooklyn halfway between Park Slope and Cobble Hill (in somewhat of a star-studded neighborhood where actors Ethan Hawke, Paul Dano, Keri Russell, and singer Norah Jones all own homes). When I’m not writing YA books, I’m writing copy for advertisements (mostly for pharmaceutical companies) and one of these days I’d really like to write a TV show. Please feel free to ask me any more specific questions for your report!

  • Reagan

    Hey Caitlyn ! I’m like in love with your books! I already finished the Rock Stars Daughter and now I’m reading the Viscounts Daughter. Have you ever thought about making your Treadwell Academy books into movies?
    -Reagan

    • Hi Reagan! Thanks for your note and I hope you like The Viscount’s Daughter! I would love, love, love for the Treadwell books to one day become movies. Unfortunately that’s not up to me – movies involve all kinds of agents and studios. But if any movie studio ever wants to take the rights to these books, they’re available!
      If you’re a Taylor fan, keep your eyes peeled for Center Stage, all about Allison Burch, coming soon!

  • kayleigh

    I have read the rock stars daughter, the believers daughter and the discounts daughter and was really gripped by them. I am wondering if there is going to be any sequels for them as I would love to know what happens with their storys.

    • admin

      Hi there! There is a sequel in the works for The Rock Star’s Daughter, and a spin-off series about Allison that will be coming out soon!

  • Sarah

    I wondered why the description for The Believers Daughter has changed? Grace never struck me as particularly bullied and I was a little confused by it. Grace’s story is probably my favourite, and I hope we hear (at least tangentially) about her return to Treadwell.

    • admin

      Hi Sarah! Thanks for your note. Grace’s experience at Treadwell is only briefly mentioned at the beginning. She was frequently the target of cruelty from Emma and the popular girls, but because she loves her family so much, it doesn’t bother her much. One of these days I would love to continue her story since my heart is in New York City and it was really a delight to write about experiencing it through fresh eyes, just like I did when I was 17. And, of course, I love Felix.

    • admin

      Hello and I’m so sorry it’s taken me a week to write back to your note on my blog! I’m insanely busy editing my latest book, Center Stage, which is being released in June. It’s a follow-up to the first book, The Rock Star’s Daughter, and tells Allison’s story. I’ll hopefully be blogging a lot more in the near future, and will be hosting some contests and giveaways on Facebook closer to the book’s release date. Thank you for reading!!

    • admin

      Hi Kayleigh,
      it hasn’t been released yet, but if you’d like to receive a free paperback advanced copy, let me know! I’d be happy to send you one.

  • Megan Smith

    I have been waiting and waiting for the next book. I am trying to find a copy of Center Stage and cannot. How can I fine one?

    From a huge fan that checks almost every day to see if a new book comes out!

  • Elizabeth

    Is there currently any way to purchase a copy of Center Stage? Amazon only offered a paperback version, but copies are unavailable.

    • admin

      Hi Melissa, Yes! I have a few books in progress, but I’m having a hard time deciding which character’s story to complete first. Your input is welcome!

  • Jaylyn

    Hi I’m wondering if the Taylor Sequel was still happening. I’ve from a couple of friends that you were thinking about writing one. Is this true?

    • admin

      Hi Jaylyn,
      It’s true! Still happening! Part of the story of what happens to Taylor in her junior year is told through Allison’s eyes in Center Stage. However, the story of Taylor and Todd will be continued – publication date is before the end of 2017.
