Because of the volume of mail I recieve,

I cannot respond to individual emails.  

If you'd like to get a personal response,

you can send me a letter through the

regular mail by writing to me at:

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
Children's Books
125 High Street
Boston, MA 02110
Attn: Vivian Vande Velde Author Mail


(If you enclose an envelope already addressed to you with a stamp, that's even more helpful.)  I'll do my best to get back to you as quickly as I can, but sometimes I might be delayed because of my writing schedule or because I'm occasionally away from home at conferences or visiting schools.  So don't write to me when you absoutely, positively MUST have an answer within a couple of days.

If you want to write to me regarding a school or library or conference visit, please contact:
