Feeling adventurous? Try going on a quest - a webquest that is. Boldly go where no kid has ever gone before and seek out answers to solve the world's problems . . . okay maybe just have fun! After all, that's what summer is all about. I hope you'll have fun reading one of my summer favorites, Trolls Don't Rider Roller Coasters. Of course, I have to tell you that I'm like Liza-scared of roller coasters. Are you braver than me?
Right now I'm definitely not feeling brave. I'm feeling quite sick. I ate way too much pizza last night and my stomach feels terrible! It tasted so good I got carried away and now my stomach is mad at me! You can probably tell I like pizza because of my book, Dragons Don't Cook Pizza. In fact, you can probably tell I like dragons because I've written around six books about dragons. Do you know what they are? There's another webquest for you, seek out the dragons! And don't forget to tell me what you want to have next on the homepage story. Nikki, I like all of my books so it's hard for me to say which story I like best. Since everyone likes different types of stories, which one do you think is best? (Another one of my favorties for summer is Mermaids Don't Run Track.) Muhammed, I love the start of your baseball story. I hope you're having fun with it and I'd glad you liked Mrs. Claus Doesn't Climb Telephone Poles.
Dale, thanks for your great ideas. You are very clever. Nathan, Matthew, and Alex, thanks for your super input on the homepage story. Brittany, right now I'm working on two stories-the silliest story I can write and one with Marcia Jones. I just finished writing two chapters for that one yesterday. Let's just say it involved slime and potato chips! ttyl, Debbie

Summer reading is great! Fatima, I'm so glad you like my books. Have you tried Mummies Don't Coach Softball? The idea for it came from a really creepy mummy exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. If you ever get to Chicago, you should check out the mummy exhibit. It's cool.
Ryan, your zombie idea was so funny! (Zombies Don't Wear Clean Underwear) My zombie book is Zombies Don't Play Soccer. I got the idea for that book from my kids playing soccer. In fact, my son is getting ready to play soccer right now.
I had a lot of company this week so I didn't make it to the ocean. (My company didn't want to go.) I'm still working on my summer list of things to do. I've finished 8 things, but still have 12 more to go. I guess I'd better get busy! Hope your summer is going well, Debbie

It's Monday morning and I'm in my pj's, sitting down to do one of my favorite things-write! I hope you'll take a peek at Natalie's cool notebook on the Keyholder page. I love the way the webmaster made the pages turn. Annette, one of my favorite books is in my new Keyholder series. It's The Other Side of Magic. I'm pretty excited about the next two books in the series too. They come out in November. Matthew, I'm so glad you like the Keyholder series. Thanks for your cool wargaule idea. I haven't gone on vacation yet. I plan to go to the Smoky Mountains in August for a family reunion in a big log cabin. I love log cabins-I dream of owning one some day. Vita, I do remember the fangs from your school. It was so funny and surprising. Here's a picture of it.
Vijclithya, I'm glad you want to review Beware of the Blabbermouth. If you're an adult, feel free to contact me through my events page to give me more information. This book has had two different covers. if you're a student, you can ask me questions here. Nick, I'm not sure what you mean by regular series. Shatakshi, you can purchase books through my website (with your parent's help, of course). One story I have on my site is Gnomes Don't Slurp Spaghetti. I'm also creating a story this summer on my homepage. I hope you all will give me input this week. Alex, I like action in stories too. In fact, I'm working on a story that's all action and as silly as I can possibly make it. Elias, thanks for your great idea. Here's a link to a Bailey School Kids junior bookmark. There are more bookmarks on the teacher's page. Have a great week and do something fun! I'm going to write a story and hopefully go to the ocean for a day, Debbie

I hope you had a great Fourth of July celebration. We had a cookout with my husband's father, his brother and his family. It was fun, but I got beat at bocce ball and washers. Maggie and Vivian, I hope you had a super weekend. Maggie, I like the Twilight books too. I'm glad you also like my books! My favorite sport to play is tennis, blue is my favorite color, and my favorite place to go is home. One of my favorite trips was to Paris. I have lots of favorite books, like This Side Of Magic.
Sophia, sorry I didn't answer you sooner. I thought I already had. I like mysteries too. I think it would be fun to write about fairies as well. (There actually are fairies in my new Keyholder series) Brittany and Gabby, I'm glad you got the bookplates. Alex, thanks for your great idea. Have a fantastic week and don't forget to check out the story on my homepage. I'm off to the skateboard park, Debbie

Happy Monday morning! I've crossed three things off my summer list already-going on a picnic, reading a classic, and going to Hershey Park. Last weekend for Father's Day we went to Hershey Park and yesterday we went on a nice picnic and then my husband and kids went fishing. (I read and took pictures). I finished reading Catcher in the Rye. It's a grown-up book and rather strange if you ask me. I almost didn't want to finish it, but I kept waiting for it to get really good. I was disappointed, but I must admit I still think about the character so maybe that's what the author intended. It's definitely a book for high school or beyond.
I've been working on a . I challenged myself to write the silliest adventure story possible (even sillier than Slime Wars) and I'm having a lot of fun doing it. (It's so silly and nutty, I'm wondering what my editor will say). Maybe you'd like to give being silly a try this week. You might also like to write a story with me (check out my home page) Stay cool and be silly if at all possible, Debbie
