Hi Tara and Greta! Yes, I do love to write. Jenna, my first book came out in 1990. Lily, I was about 27 then. Basketball and tennis are my favorite sports now. Megan, I like your idea. I'm going to see if it will work in the story. Thanks so much.
Jeremy, the last regular Bailey School Kids book was Dragons Don't Throw Snowballs. Jeremy, Baylor, and Kayley-I am actually working on a series that would be harder than the Keyholders. Kayley, good luck with your writing. Shawn and Tara, do you know about Slime Time?
Natalia, I like all my series and all my books, so it is very hard to pick! Right now, I'm tied between the BSK and Mermaid series. Izziiy, it took about a month to write Monsters Don't Scuba Dive. A big hello to Caroline and Nathan! Jessica, Jack is my favorite dog from The Barkley's School for Dogs. Which is yours? Michael, I did enjoy visiting your school and congratuations on winning the raffle! I hope you guys have an awesome week! ttyl, Debbie

Hi Isabella, my favorite book today is The Lost Princess. I think it is a fun story and I just love the cover. In fact, I liked it so much I am going to sell T-shirts soon that go with the book.
Payton, a lot of people have trouble with starting stories. An easy way is to just start with Once Upon a Time. Then after you've worked on your story a while, go back and take it off. It's always nice to start a story in the middle of action. Good luck with your writing! Happy Wednesday, Debbie

Kellie, the only soda I ever drink is orange, but most of the time I drink water. Arianna and Lauren, it was fun visiting your school. Arianna, I only have dogs. Since I have three, I think that is enough! Shaun, I'm glad you like Playground Bully. Sofia, I played tennis today and had a lot of fun.
Grace, I was 27 when I started writing professionally. Anthony and Ethan, that was in 1990. Hayden, I don't live in Fort Collins anymore, but my husband and son both played hockey while we lived there. I'm glad you like Frankenstein Doesn't Slam Hockey Pucks. Payton, do you have a favorite book of mine? Benjamin, I am writing book 10 of the Mermaid Tales series now. Ariel, my basketball team did pretty well!
Happy anniversary to my wonderful husband! Hope you all have a great week, Debbie

Hi Erik, it was fun to work at McDonald's in high school. Mason, the name for Mr. Mason came from a phone book-we wanted to use it in Angels Don't Know Karate because it's a great name! Grace, a kareoke machine would be funny, but would it work underwater?
Grace and Zachary, my favorite series is the Bailey School Kids series because I have written more of them and know the characters better. Greta, Kailey, Bailey, Andrew, Maggie, Evan, and Gillian, today is my son's birthday, so my favorite book today is definitely Slime Wars! Happy Birthday Nathan! Sean, I hope you'll like it. Shaun, do you think we should write another Slime Wars? Tara, I'm glad you like it! Michael, my favorite part is when they bake the treats for the girls.
Sydney, I LOVE to read! Olivia, Kieera, Nick, and Christian-I'm thrilled that you enjoy my stories. Kieera, it varies how many books I write in a year-depending on how long each story takes. Brendan, my favorite food is strawberries!
Ty, Anna, Samantha, Tessa, Ben, Andrew, Basilio, Victoria, Adam, Macie, and Kaitlynn: sometimes ideas just pop into my head and sometimes something happens to give me an idea. Chiara, it's the same thing about series. I just see something and think, wouldn't that make a fun series? Joey, thanks for your fun idea! Yes, Hayden I have really sold over 47 million books. Sometimes I can't believe it. Mac, I've sold 158 stories to be made into books. Cameron, Kinley, and Matthew-the hardest BSK was Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips. The easiest BSK was Santa Claus Doesn't Mop Floors. Ryan, werewolves and mermaids are my favorite monsters.
Bridget, I'm so glad you love the Ghostville Elementary series. It's tough to pick my favorite, but today it is Ghosts Be Gone! Michael, you sound like an amazing reader!
Basil, Hannah, Kelly, Cassidy, Elizabeth, and James-your school is awesome!
Connor, I'm glad you like the Keyholders series. Your idea was great! Brandon, the third one is my favorite. Which one is yours?
Nick and Brielle, today my favorite Swamp Monster in third Grade book is Trapped in the Principal's Office. What's yours? Ryan and Ademore, there are no plans to make any more, but there are plans so far for 12 Mermaid Tales books.
Katie and Honor, Marcia and I did a lot of brainstorming to make Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots. Alexandra, I hope you have an awesome year too! My next booksigning will be at the Tinicum Arts Festival, you can get my autograph then if you live nearby. Rohan, my longest book was Cherokee Sister. Max and Ben, I do think it is fun to write because anything can happen in a story!
Mattie, Sue is my middle name and life is pretty good. Erik, I am a lady. Ryleigh, I have three children.
Scott, my 10th book was Witches Don't Do Backflips. Isabella, I understand what you teacher is saying, but you might mention to her that sometimes it's great just to read for fun! Have the most amazing week ever, Debbie

Hi Logan, I like basketball too! My favorite part of Leprechauns Don't Play Basketball is the honeybee waltz. See you at lunch on Friday! Elias, you're right! Abby and Jessica, I'm delighted that you like the Bailey School Kids books. Do you have a favorite? Ryan, there are 51 numbered Bailey School Kids books and 14 specials. Tyler, I have done 13 series.
Chiara and Olivia, I'd be happy to take a picture with you if it's okay with your teachers and we have time. Yes, Baylor and Maggie, I am working on a new series. Tyler, I'm glad you like My Mom the Frog. I thought it was a fun story.
Caroline, Aidan, and Charlotte: it's so cool that you like the Mermaid Tales series. I have having so much fun writing it! Right now, there are 12 planned. Evelyn, whenever I write a story I do research. I was reading about sea horses and thought it would be fun to write about them. That's where the idea for the next Mermaid Tales book came from, The Secret Sea Horse. Elizabeth, right now The Lost Princess is my favorite Mermaid Tales.
Jessica, you sound like a really fast reader. I did research for Wolfmen Don't Hula Dance by going to Hawaii! A big hello and thanks to Jesse, Abby, Marc, and Mounir. Lily, I started being a cheerleader in fifth grade. Natalia, I never looked in my mom's diary because she didn't keep one. Brodie and Eli, my favorite book today is Angels Don't Know Karate.
Nina and Gavin, I was 27 when I first started writing. Nina, I'm happy you like Angels Don't Know Karate. I enjoyed writing about a nice creature.
Gabby, Debbie was my father's idea. He wanted his children to have easy names because he had a very unusual one. Alison, I do think it is fun being an author. Aidan, I'm glad you like the Triplet Trouble books. Who is your favorite character? Did you know I actually had a dog named Cleo?
Ben and Jake, I get ideas from everywhere, including things I like to do. Like I like camping and hiking and so does Marcia, so we wrote Werewolves Don't Go To Summer Camp. Benjamin, I have written and sold 158 stories to be made into books. Shannon, my best book depends on what you like. Because everyone likes different things, everyone will like different kinds of books. Which one do you think is the best? Have a safe, happy Thursday, Debbie
