Hi! I just got back from the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. I got to hike, have a family reunion, and visit some friends. I'll be putting some of their pictures on my homepage and in my photo album. Helen, it's good to hear from you. See you soon. Jerry, I have heard of the authors you mentioned. Margarett Mitchell is one of my favorites. Yes Katie, Marcia is my best friend. Bill, it's hard to pick my favorite character from the Bailey School Kids, but I must admit that I do have a soft spot for Eddie. Sonja, there are several different reasons why some series are written by different people. Sometimes the author starts a series and gets tired of it and wants someone else to help them. Sometimes the author dies and the publisher asks other people to continue the series. Sometimes the publisher plans the series and asks if authors are interested in writing some of the books. That's what happened with 39 Clues I believe. I'm glad you like the Bailey School Kids books. Have you checked out Frankenstein Doesn't Plant Petunias? I was able to catch up with Frankenstein in Tennessee.
Fred, I have been lucky enough to travel to other countries, like France, England, Scotland, Italy, Greece, Croatia, Mexico, Canada, Beligum, Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. I like to visit places to see how other people live. The most interesting thing I've found out is that there are nice people everywhere. There are many other places I'd like to visit, like the states of Maine, Washington, and Oregon; as well as the country of Australia. Is there somewhere you would like to visit? Best, Debbie

It's raining-it's pouring-I think we're getting flooded. No kidding, there's water everywhere. On the roads, yards, but thankfully not in our house. Hopefully it's not in anyone's house where it's not supposed to be. It just doesn't seem to want to stop raining. It made me think of Dragons Don't Throw Snowballs, where it didn't want to stop snowing. Did you know that story was based on a true story of a school where they actually did get trapped by a blizzard and had to spend the night in their gym? I visited that school. Luckily it didn't happen when I was there. (How would you like that to happen at your school?)
Matthew, I hope you're having a great summer and not getting too much rain where you live. Alexa, I love to write and don't ever want to stop! I'm fine (except for the rain!).
Brittany, your ideas were so funny, especially the poker one. I hope you and your mom are getting along better. If I was you, I'd be upset with your friend. But hopefully you guys are all happy again by now. Naruto, I probably can't use your name in a book because I'm sure it is trademarked because of the games, cards, and shows. Stay out of the rain and have a go0d week! Read and be cool. Many blessings, Debbie

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
