Are you ready for some shocking news? My husband and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. Isn't that cool? Being married isn't always easy, but I'm lucky to have Eric for a husband. He arranged a magical renewal of vows ceremony with beautiful roses, music, and a lovely dinner with family. He's romantic!
Hi to Amanda, aren't you glad it's cooler now? I'm happy you like Whislter's Hollow. Happy Birthday to Danielle! Adrianna, did Dragons Don't Cook Pizza make you want to eat pizza? I had pizza last night for dinner. Kirsten, check out my new writing page for writing tips. One tip that helps me is to read your story out loud to see if it makes sense and to make sure you don't want to add more words or take some away.
Greetings to Grumpy Grandma. My first book came out in 1990. Lily, thanks for the magic name suggestion. It looks like my editor liked The Shadow Realm best.
Serena, I'm glad you liked Vikings Don't Wear Wrestling Belts. We picked most of our character's names from the phone book. Vanessa, you can look at the list of Bailey School kids books in the event section of my website or in a recent book. That will give you a list, but I don't have a timeline.
Leon, check out the book report section on the Swamp Club if you still need help with your report. Are you still in school? Where I grew up in Ky. the kids have year round school. How would you like that?
I hope you read something fun today. Stay cool, Debbie

IT IS SO HOT!!!!!!!!! Yesterday I watched my son's soccer game, came home and threw up it was so hot! And I wasn't even playing! My son was fine, so I guess I'm just a wimp! But in my defense, it was 100 degrees and today is supposed to be that hot too. I hope it's cooler where you are.
I love planting flowers and playing in the dirt! I just planted some flowers and they're so pretty! (Okay, I'm a girl, what can I say?) I hope they don't die in the heat. My favorite color flowers are white, yellow, and purple/blue. What are yours?
A big hot hello to Rachel, blwolwicz, Connor, and Brody. Kaitlin, I don't think it's weird that you like to read my books and you're in fifth grade. I meet lots of kids your age who read my books. In fact, I like to read kid's books and I'm a whole lot older than fifth grade. If you enjoy it, I say go for it. In April of 2009, I will have a harder series called Keyholders that I hope you'll try.
Lauren, your plays were totally cool! Yes, Raena, I was really scared skydiving during the freefall, but I liked it when the parachute caught and I was floating. I'm not sure which school you go to, but I did have lunch with some students recently. The librarian chose some kids, based on a contest I believe.
Danielle, congrats on your book writing. Of course, I remember visitng Cheyenne, Wyoming. I do hope you'll enjoy your new school in New Mexico.
Desiree, it would be cool to have the Bailey School Kids be a TV series. I'm excited because it's being made into a traveling play right now. Ben, I hope you enjoyed Wizards Don't Need Computers.
Stay cool, Debbie

When I was in elementary school, my favorite things were playing baseball in the backyard, riding my bike, and reading. What will do you this summer?
Pragun, I'm glad you like my website. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I always like to make it better. Of course I'd like to visit your school, as well as Danielle's. Just get your teacher to contact me in the events section (I only can respond to adults in that section.) I hope to write lots more books. I love doing it.
Kira, when Marcia Jones and I first wrote Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots, we did tell that Mrs. Jeepers was a vampire, but our editor asked us to change it so it wouldn't be so scary.
Dina, I'm glad you like the Ghostville Elementary books. Keara, Ashley, and Mackenzie, some books are hard to write and some are easy-I never know! Good luck to Charity, Megan, and Danielle on their writing. Danielle, good luck with your new school. Charity and Megan, the inspiration for Angels Don't Know Karate came from when I took karate lessons.
Sarah, my middle name is Sue, although DVD would be fun initials! Dawson, my first book came out when I was 29. Shelby, I live in PA. and I've written about 147 books. One of my favorites is The Worst Name in Third Grade. Amanda, my longest fiction book is probably Whislter's Hollow.
Bonjour (hello in French) to Kiristin, Jacqui, Evana. Jonathan, sorry that I don't have any color photos of Eddie's dragon hat, but I think orange spikes would be cool. What did you decide? Pengie, you can order Mrs. Jeepers Creepy Christmas from Scholastic.com. Lots of books have Mrs. Jeepers' picture in them. All of the super specials do.

What good investigators Nikkia, Brennon, Syrus, and Louis will make. They noticed that Miss Kidwell didn't have a bell charm in Gremlins Don't Chew Bubble Gum. It was because the bell and the clock were tied together. The bell rang at a certain time.
Go Jacqui Go! Good luck with your reading. Jenna, I've written 147 books. Mat, I do like to write because anything can happen in a story. Good luck with your writing Alexis. You might like to try out the new writing section of my website. Amy, my creatures are made-up, but if I ever meet any real vampires or werewolves I'll let you know! Evan, I've had many different editors. I like to read, I think that made me want to write.
Bonjour (that's French for hello!) to Chelsea, Micheal, Nori, Dana, Mary, Karen, Shyla, Colin, Annissa, Melody, Amanda, Michael, and Stephen. Are you looking forward to the end of school? Kamau, check out the Swamp Club for a special section on me to help you with your book report. Michael, you can write to me in care of
Scholastic 557 Broadway New York, New York 10012
Katiea, I do hope to write more Bailey School Kids books. I had a great childhood growing up in Kentucky. I rode my bicycle everywhere. My first book was Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots. In the future, I hope to write a song.

Jay, I'm sorry I missed meetin gyou. It was fun visiting your school.

Much happiness to Nor, Tatyana, Michael, Heather, Ansley, Katie, and Sarahi. Thanks for writing everyone!
Zuhaira, check out Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream on my book page. Super Eddie is one of my favorite chapters. Cris, that is a work of fiction. Nancy and Warwick fourth graders, Skeletons Don't Play Tubas is one of my favorite Bailey School Kids books.
Robert, you sound like an awesome reader. Ebenezer and De'Ja, check out my book report site in the Swamp Club for your report. Tiffany, I became a writer because I like to read so much. I thought it would be so cool for someone to read something that I wrote! Michael, my first book came out in 1990. Yes, Hannah, I do hope to write more Bailey School Kids books.
Don't forget to be happy, Debbie
