Question: To the person who was complaining because the URL to my "Lois Duncan" Web site wouldn't work -- and I kept insisting it WOULD work if you typed it in right -- I apologize for that response. You were absolutely right. I didn't realize that my husband had been working on the site and had accidentally done something that made it unobtainable.

I hope he's able to get it working again soon, as this is exactly the time of year when kids need information about authors for school papers.

A&E cold case files
Question: I read and watch alot of true crime stories and Kaitlyn's story really bothered me. It struck me that I had never seen the story on cold case files or any other program(and i'm pretty sure i've seen them all), so I tried to email Bill Kurtis with as much information as I could come up with in just a few lines but I was unsucsessful in delivering it because the email box was full. I tried several more times with the same results. So my question is have you ever tried to contact Bill Kurtis or A&E with this awful story, because I believe that it would be a great way to really get the story out there and possibly solve it.[From: Leah in Florida]

Reply: It was my understanding that the Cold Case Files show was fiction. Am I wrong about that?

Question: hi, what is your e-mail that i can contact you at and ask you some questions? because when i plug in - - it doesn't work. thanks

Asked on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 02:30:55 PM
Reply: You've got the right e-mail address.

But, when you use the words "plug in," I wonder if you are talking about sending an e-mail or visiting my "Lois Duncan" web site.

My professional web site starts with the usual h-m letters, (for some reason this message board won't allow me to post them), and then (no www)

If you have a problem, Google it.

your picture
Question: There's a picture of you on your Lois Duncan website but no picture of you on this one. Why not?

Asked on Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 10:17:14 AM
Reply: Because this web site isn't about me. It's about Kait.

Question: what was the hardest and devastating part of your book to write?

Asked on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 05:18:55 PM
Reply: The second chapter.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: Oh, I think this is the neatest thing that people can post messages and can talk to you and you can reply! I love it! Thanks for your reply's and i'll probably be asking more things about the book! Thank You SOOOO much! I think this is awesome that you can talk to a worldwide author!

Reply: I appreciate your interest, but, in general, I would prefer that students who are seeking information for school projects go to my "Lois Duncan" web site and send me a personal e-mail from there. That way I'll respond more appropriately to your questions.

Hi, again
Question: In the book you said Kait\'s girlfriend\'s name was Susan Smith, but on this site it said it was Sharon Smith. What is her real name??????????

Is there any way to become a pen pal with you? Please tell me!

Reply: In the front of WHO KILLED MY DAUGHTER? I say, "This is a true story ... the facts are documented, (but) several names have been changed." I changed those names to protect the privacy of Kait's friends, who were not involved in any way in the case, other than that they were grieving.

Sharon's name was one that I changed, because, at the time I wrote the book, I believed she was that kind of friend. I now have reason to suspect otherwise. So, on this Web site, I'm using her real name, so that people who knew her will recognize who I'm talking about. It's possible Sharon may have shared information with those people, and they may be motivated to contact us.

I'm sorry, but I can't become a pen pal. It's hard enough to find time to write to my own family members.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Question: I'm currently reading your book and I'm truly facinated! I love all your fiction books and this one is by far the best. Although it is sad, I'm now realizing that stuff like this really does happen. I never really thought about it like that before.
Are you currently working on another book? You should, you are my favorite author.
Do you dedicate books to people you've never met who wrote you a message? Because if you do, I would like you to dedicate on to me, my name is Sherilyn Harper! I would be honored.
I love your work and am truly sorry about what happened in 1989, it must be so hard, but I admire you so much for not giving up! You truly are an inspiration!! When I grow up I hope I can be as stong and inspiring as you are!!
With love
Your number one fan

Reply: Thank you for your message.

My new book is titled SEASONS OF THE HEART, and it's not a suspense novel. You can read about it on my "Lois Duncan" web site at, (there's no www in that URL).

I dedicate books to family and very close friends. THE TALLY KEEPER is going to be dedicated to "Kait's Army," which will include all the good people who have helped us investigate this case.

Question: the message that asked what the theme and climax of the story wasn't written by me (erin) just to let you know..... i just wanted to let you know that i'm not trying to get you to do the report for me and am a very good student that gets all a's and is salutatorian of of our class and my twin is valedictorian.

Thank you!!!!

Question: When thinking of dung does he scare you in any way? do you know where he is now, and are you still concerned that he's involved in katilyn's killing?

Asked on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 04:25:03 PM
Reply: Dung has never scared me. During the two years he dated Kait he was in and out of our house all the time, ate most of his meals there, and called me "Mom," because he missed his own mom back in Vietnam. I feel sure he liked me.

I don't know where he is now.

I don't think he killed Kait or wanted her killed. My personal belief is that he was involved in illegal activities that Kait learned about, and that her knowledge of those activities caused her to be killed.

I believe Dung knows exactly what happened and is afraid to speak out. But I don't think he killed her.

Question: i noticed that your name is lois DUNCAN however katilyns last name is arquette. this may be a stupid question but why are the last names different? was kait adopted?

Asked on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 03:41:39 PM
Reply: My name at birth was Lois Duncan Steinmet. I was named after my mother -- Lois Steinmetz. When I started selling stories to magazines, I didn't want everyone to think Mother wrote them, so I started using my middle name (which was my grandmother's maiden name) as a pen name.

I'd written many books under the name "Lois Duncan" by the time I married Don Arquette. I couldn't afford to lose my professional identity as "Lois Duncan," so I continued to use that as my professional name. Socially I'm Mrs. Don Arquette or "Lois Duncan Arquette."

Kait definitely was not adopted. Don and I made her together.

Setting of story
Question: hi, its erin again, and for my book report i am to describe the setting with very much description. is there any way you can tell me from our personal experience what the setting looked like. i know it told you throughout the story, however, more detail from a personal experience would be even better. I'm going very in depth for this book report because this is a very interesting book that is a true challenge. Thank you very much!

Asked on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 03:01:11 PM
Reply: Your teacher apparently wants you to do research for your report. You know from my book where we lived at the time Kait was killed. Research that area on the Internet.

Book Report.
Question: My Name Is Erin and I live in New Mexico also. I'm 13 Years old and I was assigned this book for my English class for my book report. I really enjoyed it!~ Your a very strong and brave mom. Which detective was the most helpful for you? I think it would be great to have some personal input for my book report! Thank you! God Bless!~

Asked on Saturday, March 24, 2007 at 12:39:38 PM
Reply: No detective at the Albuquerque Police Department was helpful.

Several private investigators have been very helpful, but I'd rather not post their identities.

theme and climax
Question: I'm sorry, I know this is kinda off topic but you would be the best person to help me identify the theme and the climax in your book. Can you help?

Question: Those 2 ideas sound like one in the same to me.

Asked on Thursday, March 22, 2007 at 12:07:02 PM
Reply: I understand what he means.

Did Kait lose her life because she broke up with Dung?

Or did she break up with Dung because she was afraid for her life?

Either way, the end result was the same.

Answered by: Kait's Mom
Why Kait was killed
Question: There are two ways to look at this. From the timing, it's clear that Kait's breaking up with her Vietnamese boyfriend has a place in the picture. But what place was it?

What I mean is, did she decide to break up with the boyfriend before or after a plan was made to kill her? Two possibilities:

(1) Kait was killed because she broke up with the boyfriend, and therefore became a threat to illegal activities she'd learned about like the heroin smuggling.

(2) Kait learned about the heroin smuggling, refused to be part of it, and THAT CAUSED HER to break up with the boyfriend.

Asked on Wednesday, March 21, 2007 at 10:37:01 AM
Reply: You make a good point.

In the beginning we took it forgranted that her break-up with Dung was what caused her to be killed. But now, after all we've learned, your second suggestion makes more sense.

In my prayers
Question: I just finished your book Who Killed My Daugher and I have not read a book in a long time that I could not put down! All I read are non-fiction true stories and your writing is some of the best! I am now going to go back and read some of your fictional thrillers you have written.

I have never lost a child so although I cannot fully understand the impact it had on you and your family, you will forever be in my thoughts and prayers. I really hope that some day you find out the truth but just as you wrote in your book about Kait's feelings on the matter, these individuals will have to answer to a higher power for what they have done.

I too believe that those that have moved on can communicate with us and in fact have felt my grandmother letting me know she was watching over me. I whole heartedly believe that Kait has been in communication with you and your family and that she is with her grandparents now. You will be reunited with her one day and for that there is thankfulness!

God bless you and your family.
