If you knew what the Great Unknown was, you would wish you had never known it.
Is the series connected to any real life experiences? By Hannah
Thank you, Hannah, for a very interesting question. The answer is, of course, 'yes'. 'How?' I hear you ask – trying to shoehorn in two questions where only one was meant to fit. But the second answer is: 'on a multitude of levels', which here means yes, yes, yes and most probably. For instance, the books are connected to my real life experience of sitting down to write them. Also, I find real life to be filled almost to the brim with sorrow and tragedy, which would be a not wholly inaccurate description of the story of the Baudelaire orphans.

Do you visit schools? Anonymous
Not as a general rule, though my investigations did once take me to a somewhat austere academy.

A question best answered by Beatrice herself. Oh, Beatrice!

Is Lemony Snicket's real name Daniel? by Cassidy
Is your real name Cassidy? Somehow I doubt that could be the truth.... Cassidy.
Do you know where the Baudelaire orphans are now? by Anne Fortman
This sounds suspiciously like one of Olaf's troupe masquerading as an innocent young girl named Anne.

But yes, I do know the whereabouts of the Baudelaire orphans, though I am not at liberty to share that information at this time.

Why is Count Olaf so stupid and schemeful? From Melissa
Dear Melissa, be especially wary of this well-engineered trap. One of Count Olaf's most schemeful schemes is to convince people that he is stupid. As to why he is so schemeful, this can most appropriately be explained by the degree of his avariciousness, a word which here means the excessive greed of a grasping villain.
Where does Lemony Snicket come from?
This 'Enquiring Enquiry' was from Samantha Tomes
Until recently, Mr Snicket was living someplace else. He was born before you were, and is likely to die before you as well. Originally he was reportedly born on a cattle farm rather than in a hospital, but Mr. Snicket himself has disputed this claim stating he was born on a dairy farm called Valourous Farms Dairy, simply because his parents stopped by to purchase garlic butter at exactly the wrong time. His family has roots in a part of the country which is now underwater. To the untrained eye, Mr Snicket's hometown would not appear to be filled with secrets. Untrained eyes have been wrong before.
