    Brrrr! It's freezing here in PA. I'd love to visit Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dotssomeplace warm about now.  Destiny and Tatianna, I'm so glad you love my books.  (I know Eddie is a bit wild.)  It's fun thinking of the titles (the first one came from when Liza said, "Mrs. Jeepers can't be a vampire.  Vampires don't wear polka dots.")  Olivia, I don't have facebook because most of my fans are under age 14, the age you are supposed to be to have Facebook.  I do have Twitter, Jacketflap, and Booktour.com -the links are on my teacher's page.  Is there an age limit on Twitter?  I'm not sure.
The Worst Name in Third Grade     Sabrina, The Worst Name in Third Grade is about a girl who has a name that she hates, but everything else is pretty good.  She has a great teacher, great dog and friend, even if Mikey Parsons does like to tease her about her name.  One day everything changes:  she's mad at her friend and her teacher is moving-even her dog gets sick!  How will she ever solve all her problems?  I Giants Don't Go Snowboardingguess if you have the name Bridgett Butt you can do just about anything!  Sabrina F., you can write me at Kid's Talk and I'll answer you here. 
     I'm still a bit sore from going skiing at Camelback.  My kids all snowboarded, so you can see where I got the idea for Giants Don't Go Snowboarding.    Zach, I happen to love cheddar cheese.  Nicholas, click here and you can see where the artist got his idea for Mrs. Jeepers.  Victoria, I write every day and love it, so new books are coming!  Trinity, I answered a lot of letters the other day.  I hope yours was one of them.  ttyl (and stay warm and well-I think I may have caught the flu!), Debbie

     HAPPY 2010!!  Check out the Books Alive interview of me.  I did it in Maryland not too long ago.  Kaitlyn and Latley, I don't need your email.  I'll answer your questions here.  Alex, I think Pricilla Pocus used magic to get the Kilmer's Pet Monsteranimals to listen to her in Kilmer's Pet Monster, don't you?  My dogs are so sweet and I guess I've trained them fairly well.  Most of the time they listen to me just because they love me and because I give them treats! 
     Rishona, I'm so glad you love the Keyholder series.  Marcia and I are excited about hopefully writing two Inside the Magicmore books in the series.  Did you know about #3 and #4?  The cover of #3 (Inside the Magic) is my favorite.  Do you have a favorite?   Larun, I'm delighted you love my books.  I hope you all have a great new year!  ttyl, Debbie

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  Can you believe it's almost 2010?  I hope Angels Don't Know Karatethis year brings you much happiness and lots of fun surprises.  Hi to JessicaCarina, I've written stories with Nathan and Becky, but not with Alex (yet).  Becky and I hope to get our story published (I think it rocks).
     Shannon, I get ideas from lots of places, even the newspaper.  My children have given me lots of ideas.  For instance, right now I'm working on a skateboarding story since my youngest son is into skateboarding.  I wrote Angels Don't Know Karate because my two sons took karate lessons (I did too for Elves Don't Wear Hard Hatsa while).  Marcia and I got the idea for Elves Don't Wear Hard Hats from a school near us where the parents and community got together to build a playground that the kids got to design. Alexis, I do like writing chapter books-they're fun.  (I'm working on a skateboarding book.)  Two new authors-good luck with your writing.  I get character's names mostly from the phone book.  Amarie,  congrats on  meeting your reading goal.  That's awesome.  I hope you'll like Whistler's Hollow.  Harshini and Harika, my newest books are #3 and #4 of The Keyholder series, Inside the Magic and The Wrong Side of MagicHarshini, please tell your little sister I said hello. 
     Bryleigh, the Bailey School Kids Junior books are Eddie, Melody, Howie, and Liza when they were in second grade.  Swamp Monster in Third GradeThere are more pictures and the words are a bit easier to read.  One of my favorite is Reindeer Do Wear Striped Underwear.  The Swamp Monster in Third Grade is a series of four books.  In the first one a boy swamp monster goes to school and spends the night in a human house.  He can't sleep until he pours water on the Snow Monster Mysterypillow!  Wait until you find out what changes him into a human-you'll never want to eat them again!  Alex, Hilda is a bit magical in Snow Monster Mystery don't you think? (I did have fun for Christmas, did you?)
     Brianna, unless someone asks me not to display a post, they are shown unless it's inappropriate.  They can be traced or blocked if necessary.   Hope all is well, Debbie

 MERRY CHRISTMAS!  I hope everyone has a great Mrs. Claus Doesn't Climb Telephone Polesholiday.  Casey and Salma, I'm so glad you like my books.  Casey, please tell your mom I said hello.  Bryleigh, thanks for the information.  I must admit I like Eddie too and I love red hair!  I have no plans to come to TN in 2010, but maybe your school can invite me.  Check with your teacher or librarian.  It's easy, they can contact me on my event page. 
Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots     Hannah, I think you are thinking of Whistler's Hollow.  Colon, for this time of year Christmas stories are my favorites (like Mrs. Claus Doesn't Climb Telephone Poles because it has my daughter in it), but my first story was Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.    Josiah and Josiah, you might like to try out my writer's page (don't forget to scroll down for more info).  One tip is that I wouldn't worry about the title first, sometimes a title will appear while you are writing your story or you can brainstorm it after you are finished with the story.  To a kid:  click here to get to the character sheet (it's on the writing page).  Many blessings, Debbie

The Slime Wars    Hi Samantha and Kayla, I hope you'll enjoy Whistler's Hollow and Slime Wars.  I gave the book to your librarian so you can find out what's in the attic in Whistler's Hollow.  Michael, your story sounds cool.  Go for it!  Emily, I'm not sure if we will do more Ghostville books.  Do you think we should?  Samantha, I love your funny ideas!  Mia, good luck with your writing.  You and Michael might like to check out my writing pageCasey and Hannah, you might like to go there too for writing tips.  Your dog story sounds very Angels Don't Know Karateexciting. 
     Ashley, I'm so glad you liked Angels Don't Know Karate and Trolls Don't Ride Roller Coasters.  I have lots of favorites and this time of year, Angels Don't Know Karate is definitely one of them.  Rachael, my least favorite is probably Buffalo Bill and the Pony Express because of some of the changes my editor made without asking  me, although I do like the story itself.
This Side of Magic     Ryan, I love your ideas, especially the ones for the KeyholdersCatelin, your idea was so funny.  Your mom sounds totally cool.  Lexi, what book did you mean?  You and Hardika, should go to your school or public library.  You can check books out there for free.
     Kevin, it was awesome to hear from you.  It's so strange, I was thinking about you and Brendan from Australia the other day-wondering how you guys were Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh Ridesdoing.  How's fifth grade?  A big hello to Larun.
     Have you tried making your own comics at Comic Creator?   You might like to try it over your winter vacation.  It's fun.  Hope you'll also enjoy snuggling up with one of my books over the holiday-maybe Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh Rides.  Merry Christmas!  Debbie
