Westborough – On March 11, Jacqueline Davies, the author of the popular children's series, “The Lemonade War,” visited Tatnuck Bookseller to speak to her readers and sign copies of her books. Davies talked about her latest novel, “The Candy Smash,” but also revealed a bit about her own writing process.

“Writing is its own thing. Some people can write in hotel rooms and things like that. I need bigger stretches of time,” she said.

The Lemonade War series, she said, was originally supposed to be just one book. But, she said, the books have taken off in a way nobody would have ever expected, with translations in languages from all around the world.

She also announced that the fifth book in her series is currently being edited, and even shared its tentative title, “The Disappearing Act.” The new book is due out next spring.

During her talk, Davies stressed the importance of reading, particularly for children.

“Reading broadens your perspective on life,” she told her young fans.
