 Vampires don't WEar Polka Dotsfall leaves     Hi to the great kids at Switlik Elementary.  It was fun visiting your school.  You guys have great ideas.
     Dominic, I was 29 when I sold my first book and it was Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  Ciera, I'm glad you liked my first book.  I hope you'll also enjoy Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips.  That was the hardest Bailey School Kids book to write.  Say hi to Mrs. Toddings and your class for me.
     Alanna, every series has it's own set of unique characters.  I have written nine series.  Isabella, thanks for your awesome ideas.  Anthony, I get inspiration from everywhere, even from the newspaper and from Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chipsschools I visit!  Summer, I do like being a professional writer.  Sometimes it's hard, just like anything, but it's really nice to be able to work at something I love to do. 
     Jessica, I'm not giving away the ending of Whistler's Hollow.   I hope you'll check it out at your library.  ttyl, Debbie

     Wow, Garrett, your spiderboy idea is very cool.  I can tell you are very creative.  Do you write your own stories?  I bet they would be great.  ttyl, Debbie

    Hi Gabby, I'm so happy you like the Bailey School Kids Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh Ridesbooks.  Eddie, Melody, Howie, and Liza are good friends of mine.  When I write about them, of course I put myself in their shoes-what are they thinking and feeling?  I think an author must do that for any character.  It's sort of like being an actor in a play, but instead of saying what the actor is thinking a writer writes it down.  Hope you'll check out About Me for your report.  brb, Debbie

 fall leavesYippee!  School is almost out for Thanksgiving vacation and that means my son Nathan will be coming home from college.  Hurrah!  We can't wait. 
     Gabrielle, Marcia Jones and I got the names for most of the Bailey School Kids from one of the biggest sources of names we know-the phone Wizards Do Roast Turkeysbook.  It's a great place for character's names.  A baby name book is also very helpful.  I got the name for The Worst Name in Third Grade from the phone book. 
     Nabila, thanks for the suggestion.  Have you seen Wizards Do Roast Turkeys?  Best, Debbie
