Oh my goodness! Kensy and Max look absolutely great and their descriptions are even better! I can’t wait till March next year to read the first book! Mrs Harvey, do you have any idea about what the next Alice-Miranda book is going to be about?
Thank you,

    Thanks Yasmin- I’m delighted that you like the look and sound of them:).

    I have lots of ideas percolating for the next Alice-Miranda story- I suspect that you may well see some old favourites.

    Best wishes,

I started reading the clementine rose series when I was seven years old and when someone told me that there was Alice Miranda too, I started to read them right away. I love them all and my favourites are when she goes on holidays because of all the new sights and food that she gets to experience. I also love the ones when she is at school because my mum went to boarding school and I never got to. But in Alice Mirandas world it sounds really fun and I wish that it was real. So I have made it my mission in life to read the whole Alice Miranda and Clemintine Rose series.

PS. I need a little help please Mrs. Harvey. I really want to subscribe to your blog but I don’t know how. Could you please help me? Thank you for reading my e-mail and I hope that you reply

Dear Ms. Harvey,

I look forward to reading the new series, Kensy And Max!! They sound incredible! I was thinking about an Alice Miranda or Clementine Rose book set in Holland! I read Alice Miranda in Hollywood and I think it is absolutely amazing!!! Do you have any ideas for the next Clementine Rose book?

You will always be my favorite author.
Lots of love from your big fan Jaida.


October 12, 2017 at 10:05 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Jaida,

    Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad that you enjoyed the sneak peak and Alice-Miranda in Hollywood. Thank you for your suggestion of a Dutch adventure.

    I am super excited about Kensy and Max, too! It’s an exciting but busy time, finalising the cover of the first book and working on the prologue as well as the structural edits for ‘Breaking News’.

    There has been so much happening with Clemmie’s family and, whilst I always have story ideas swirling around in my head, I’m not sure about the next Clemmie, as Kensy and Max is taking most of my headspace:). I can say that there may be some interesting additions to the family!

    Best wishes,


    October 19, 2017 at 11:20 am



I just finished reading Alice Miranda in Hollywood last night.
I can not wait for more Jacqueline Harvey books

When will You Jacqueline be coming to Tasmania or Melbourne next


October 13, 2017 at 9:40 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Lilly,

    So glad that you enjoyed Alice-Miranda in Hollywood and the sneak peak at Kensy and Max’s characters. It is humbling for me to hear and see fans being so involved and interested in the stories.

    I am finalising some touring dates at the moment- keep an eye on the Events tab of the website. I can’t make any promises about this year- but I will almost certainly be travelling to Victoria and Tasmania as part of the Kensy and Max launch early next year.

    Best wishes,


    October 19, 2017 at 11:35 am

        Hi Danielle,

        Thanks for writing and I’m so pleased that your friend has introduced you to Alice-Miranda. I will be in Queensland again early this year so keep an eye out on the newsletters or my events pages for what’s going on. I love your ideas for the locations – I have a special location for the next book which I will reveal very soon.

        Best wishes,

Miss Dzera


OMG Kensy and Max are AWESOME!

Charlotte and I already guessed their personalities before we read the description!

also I realised that they couldn’t be identical because Kensy has green eyes and Max has blue so…yeah!

good luck writing!

Miss Dzera

October 13, 2017 at 2:36 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    I’m so glad that you like them. I’m currently editing the first book and I’m in love with them. Max is very composed and Kensy is a bit all over the place but they work really well together and have lots of fun. I can’t wait to share the stories.

    Best wishes,

    October 13, 2017 at 3:11 pm

    Tamara b


    Of course kensy and max are not identical they’re a boy and a girl
    Miss dzera

    October 17, 2017 at 5:39 pm

      Jacqueline Harvey


      Twins are interesting. I didn’t know the difference between identical and fraternal twins when I was younger. That’s true – boy and girl twins are called fraternal and then there are some twins of the same sex who are non-identical (fraternal) too and others are identical. My husband had identical twin aunts and even into their 80’s you could hardly tell them apart. I’ve also taught triplets – two girls were identical and the other wasn’t.

      October 19, 2017 at 2:58 pm



      So? You can still be identical I youre boy and girl! You can still look the same!

      January 16, 2018 at 12:02 am

        Jacqueline Harvey


        I agree they can look alike but medically speaking they aren’t identical twins, they’re fraternal twins. Only twins of the same sex can be identical because they came from one egg split in half whereas fraternal twins were their own individual eggs.

        January 23, 2018 at 8:51 am



Dear Jacqueline,
Kensy and Max look amazing and I loved reading their profiles. The tiny sneak peak was really interesting , and I can’t wait for the first book to come out!
Specially looking forward to discovering how their differences combine to make them work as a detective duo.

In eager anticipation,

October 14, 2017 at 9:29 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Meera,

    Thank you for your feedback on Kensy and Max. I am super excited about their characters and many of the other characters in the first book, ‘Breaking News’. There have been more than a few ‘laugh out loud’ moments.

    I hope that the fans enjoy reading the story and series, as much as I have enjoyed writing it:).

    Best wishes,


    October 19, 2017 at 11:41 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Thanks Meera,

    I am super excited, too! I was just so proud and impressed with the sneak peek- there are so many amazing and talented people working hard with me on this Kensy and Max journey!

    Best wishes,


    November 16, 2017 at 11:55 am



Dear Jacqueline Harvey,

My name is Beth and I am almost 13 – so probably one of your older readers. I love to read but am more interested in realistic fantasy books like yours then the sci-fi/horror books my friends read. I still love Clementine Rose too. I am annoyed that I have to wait till my local library gets each new book before I can start to read them (my parents won’t let me buy them). I hope you will continue to write more wonderful books.

Good Luck,

October 16, 2017 at 4:27 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Beth,

    Thank you for your post and for sharing your love of reading.

    I have to say that Alice-Miranda has many fans who are well into their high school years- in fact, I often hear from parents who enjoy reading the stories with their younger children. It is fine to keep reading the stories for as long as YOU are enjoying them. I hope that you will enjoy the Kensy and Max series, which is for older readers.

    I can’t imagine a time when I will not be writing stories – as long as I still enjoy writing them then why stop!

    Best wishes,


    October 19, 2017 at 12:14 pm

    Tamara K


    Same with me! My parents won’t let me buy Alice-Miranda in Hollywood, so I have to wait until the library gets it!

    October 20, 2017 at 5:30 pm



    You sound exactly like me Beth! Same age and always waiting for the next Alice -Miranda/Clementine Rose book at the library.

    October 21, 2017 at 5:28 pm



      LOL, that is cool that you are like me Minami and there is probably others out there too!
      Good to know i’m not alone in my waiting and nice to know some parents read them :).
      Thank you for the reply Jacqueline and yes I am looking forward to Kensy and Max.

      October 30, 2017 at 3:23 pm



I cant wait until Kensy and Max come out! I love Alice Miranda and Clementine Rose and I think this is going to be just as good. I’ve read every one of your books lots, and im reading Alice Miranda in Hollywood. Hopefully Kensy and Max is just amazing. I was wondering do you have birthdays for your characters? Because I can see Alice Miranda and some other characters are growing up, but i don’t exactly know if they have a set birthday.

October 16, 2017 at 8:23 pm



    Oh my god can u tell me where did u get Alice Miranda in Hollywood and jh I Can’t wait for the newsletter, I subscribed to it and don’t know how to get it. Please answer quick I can’t wait!

    October 18, 2017 at 5:09 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Avia,

    Alice-Miranda in Hollywood should be available now at stores such as Dymocks or your local bookstore or discount department stores such as Big W or Target. You should also be able to buy the book via online booksellers such as Booktopia.

    Your inbox is one of your email folders. Please let me know if you have not received the Newsletter, but please remember that, whilst I do check and answer fan mail and the blog as often as I can, I am often travelling or working to writing deadlines, so please be patient.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Maryam,

    Thank you for your post and kind words. It’s a busy and exciting time in the development of Kensy and Max- I am working, with my amazing publisher, on finalising the cover and prologue for ‘Breaking News’, as well as finalising the structural edit for the first book and writing the second book. Whilst, there is much to do, I can’t wait till launch date, either and hope that the fans will enjoy reading the first story as much as I have enjoyed writing it.

    I have never been specific about the actual birthdates of the characters but, yes, they are growing up:).

    Best wishes,

I absolutely ADORE Alice-Miranda! The mysteries are so tingly and exciting! I have read all of them except #15 and #16. Every holiday I take a pile of them out of the library and read them.

I signed up to the newsletter a few days ago and Kensy and Max sound Awesome with a capital A!
Are you planning any tours to New Zealand?
Minami xo

October 18, 2017 at 5:22 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Minami,

    Thanks for your kind words and I’m so glad that you are loving the books. I can’t wait to share Kensy and Max – I am totally in love with them. There is a lot of fun to be had. I will be in New Zealand on and off a lot next year so hopefully I’ll be able to tour while I’m there as well as checking on the house building! We are building a new house just near Queenstown.

    Hope to meet you one day soon,


    October 19, 2017 at 2:42 pm



Hi Ms Harvey,

I have tried to sign up to the newsletter twice but unfortunately it doesn’t seem to come through to the email. Will keep trying though.

Kensy and Max sounds really exciting!

Also do you know yet when Alice Miranda book 17 is coming out?

October 22, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Enya,

    Why not check your email spam folder for copies of the Newsletter?

    As an alternative, if you go to the website and click on the link in the right hand corner of the Home page https://jacquelineharvey.com.au/, subscribing should be easy.

    Please let me know if it doesn’t work?

    Kensy and Max is super exciting- I am well into writing the second book in the series and am enjoying it every bit as much as I did when writing Book 1, ‘Breaking News’. Breaking News will be released in March 2018.

    Alice-Miranda 17 will be released in the June 2018.

    Best wishes,


    October 25, 2017 at 10:47 am



Thanks Ms Harvey!

I’m sure that the book will be a great read! πŸ™‚

Saw about the NZ possible tours.
Pretty please can you come to tauranga?!
Thank You

October 30, 2017 at 3:26 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Beth,

    I would love to come to Tauranga-the Bay of Plenty is such a beautiful part of the world. Why not ask your teacher/Librarian to make contact via the website https://jacquelineharvey.com.au/teachers/, and I will see what I can do. One of the things that I love most about being a writer is being able to get out to meet the amazing children who inspire me to write. I can’t promise anything, other than I’ll do my best.

    Best wishes,


    November 2, 2017 at 1:15 pm



Hi Jacqueline!
I am your BIGGEST fan.I LOVE your books! I signed up for the newsletter just last night.
Are your new characters in an Alice Miranda book?Are you going to make a movie about Alice Miranda?

November 3, 2017 at 5:59 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Kyla,

    Thank you for your kind words. The new characters star in their own new series – called Kensy and Max. If you’re signed up to the newsletter you can find out all about them and watch the trailer. Alice-Miranda is in development to be a television series but I can’t tell you how long that will take.

    November 10, 2017 at 2:58 pm



      Lol, I understand! I’ve been using a writing app (Wattpad) and IV been writing stories and trying to get them into whack.

      January 16, 2018 at 12:04 am

        Jacqueline Harvey


        That’s great you’ve been beating your stories into shape. I’m trying to do that at the moment with AM Scotland!

        January 23, 2018 at 8:55 am



Hi Jacqueline
I have written to you before about how much I love your books and that I also love Rachel’s too. You mentioned that you were working on something, is this that book??

November 10, 2017 at 5:17 pm

    Hi Sabrina,

    Yes this is the book. Have you seen the cover and the trailer? You would have it in your inbox if you’re a newsletter subscriber, otherwise you can look at the trailer on You Tube.

    Hope you’re going to like it!
