Dear Jenna, I'm so glad you are enjoying the Mermaid Tales books. You are so nice to share with your friend! Fairy ChaseGuess what? The next Mermaid Tales book comes out on Tuesday! It is Fairy Chase. Echo wants to find a fairy. Do you think she'll find one with Rocky's help?
     Kamea, I wish you good luck with your writing. I'm impressed that you are reading the Chilldren's Writers and Illustrator's Market Guide. It is a great place to start as is the Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators. You might also find some useful things on my writing page. Best, Debbie

Dear JK, I would love to sign all your books. Perhaps your librarian could invite me to your school. My next book The Royal Teasigning is this coming Saturday (May 26th) in Sevierville, TN at the Bookmarket in the Tanger Outlets from 12-2:00. Hope we get to meet some day.
     Refia, I think we are probably all related to royalty if we go back far enough. According to Ancestry.com I am related to several different kings and queens! I hope you enjoyed The Royal Tea. Have a super duper day, Debbie

Dear Penny, I haven't started the third MerStyle magazine. If you are interested in writing for it, please study the first and second magazine.  You'll notice they are short and have themes like: royalty, manners, or a place to visit. Pick one that relates to a Mermaid Tales book and send your article (that you've read and reread and edited) to me. Best, Debbie

Dear Nydia, I was away from my computer for a few days The Crook and The Crownto travel to my brother's birthday celebration. I'm so glad you like my books! Mirabel, I'm so glad you enjoyed the Crook and the Crown. Next year, there will be another Mermaid Tales mystery called The Narwhal Mystery.
     Hi Addie, I get ideas from everywhere-even the newspaper. The idea for my book that comes out in a few weeks, Fairy Chase, came from making a fairy garden in my yard! I have even gotten ideas from the newspaper. My family and friends have given me suggestions. In fact, my oldest son and I wrote two books The Slime Warstogether, Slime Wars and Slime Time.
     Addison, it is hard for me to pick one Mermaid Tales character as my favorite because each one is a bit like me in so many ways! Echo is like me because she likes dancing and cheering. Also, I wasn't a good speller in school!
     Penny, I'm glad you like the second MerStyle magazine. The outfit is actually from my upcoming book, Fairy Chase. It is available now for order-maybe your school librarian will get it for next year if you suggest it. Aleah, I'm so glad you like my books. Do you have a favorite? Teryn and Brandy, I think I gave you this on my Facebook author page, but just in case you can write to me at either of these addresses: SIMON AND SCHUSTER 1230 AVE. OF THE AMERICAS NY, NY 10012 OR SCHOLASTIC 557 BROADWAY NY, NY 10012.   Have a blessed week, Debbie
