Hi Grace, thanks for doing a report on me.  This webpage may be helpful to you.  You might also like to use the information on this About Me page.  My photo album has Debbie in fourth gradepictures of me as a kid and as an adult.  As for the future, I hope to continue writing.  My husband wants to retire to a cabin in the woods someday and I hope to go with him!  Not sure what you mean by critical judgement of my writing, but I've been lucky enough to have been given some good reviews from School Library Journal and Booklist.  A recent Kirkus Review said that my characters' interactions were funny and believable.  Hope this helps.  Good luck, Debbie

Hi Ella, so glad you like my books.  Your idea, Yeti Doesn't The Abominable Snowman Doesn't Roast MarshmallowsSun Tan, is so fun.  Have you seen my snow monster books?  Marcia Jones and I wrote Abominal Snowmen Don't Roast Marshmallows, Snow Monsters Do Drink Hot Chocolate, and Snow Monster Mystery.  It would be fun to write another one!  I live in Pennsylvania so maybe I could visit your school someday to see your picture.  Have a great weekend, Debbie

Dear Yaneli, Here is one way to make your characters have different personalities and make them 'real."
     Jennifer, I'm glad you think my stories are interesting.  I'd like to say writing is easy for me.  Sometimes it is, but most of the time I must rewrite and rewrite a story to try to make it as interesting as I possiblity can.  I also take most of my stories to my critique group, who gives me suggestions to make my stories better.  Then my agent and editor give me more suggestions!  The story I am rewriting now is one that I've Bride of Frankenstein Doesn't Bake Cookiesbeen working on for at least four years.
     Lexius, the conflict is the problem.  Don't you think it is a problem when a ghost is haunting a house?  But isn't it also a problem that Eddie's great aunt might loose her home because she can't pay for the rent?   How does Eddie (and his dead uncle) help his aunt?  That is the solution.  What happens after he solved her problem (that is the resolution).
     Jesse, suddenly I feel a strange need to make chocolate chip cookies.  I wonder why?  Have a great day (tomorrow is 12-12-12!) Debbie
