Happy Valentine's Day. You are all very special to me and I thank you for writing.
Kaitlyn, you're cool too! My first book came out in 1990. Thanks for your funny title idea. Allison, the craziest research I've done for a book is sky-diving (click here!) and going to Space Camp. Teonna and Haley, I just finished a Snow Monster book which is perfect for today. In Pennslyvania where I live it's snowy. I didn't get home from my school visit to Louisana until 2:30 last night so I'm a bit pooped. But I did get to visit a very fun school!
Hi to Bobina, Taylor, Kevin, Destiny, Dylon, Jazmine and her sister, Ariel, Megan, Emily, Jade, and Monet. You guys rock! Monet and Amber, check out the Swamp Club for stuff about me for your reports. Let me know if you need anything else.
Caroline, the screenplay is with an LA. agent right now. He called the idea delicious so I hope he likes it. I know it's a long shot, but hey that's what makes it exciting.
Soe, of course, I'd love to visit Singapore. Soe and Haley, ask your teachers to look on my events page to find out about having me come to your school. A few years ago I went to Egypt on a school visit and my son Nathan went with me. Ever since then my daughter has reminded me that she wants to go with me on a school visit to another country.
violewalk, firegirl, and mmaas I'm so glad you like my books. mmaas, I think Jasper disappeared because he was at peace.
April and Rosemarie, I have three fabulous kids, three sweet dogs, and one very nice husband. Cooper, sometimes it is hard to write stories. Sometimes I take a break and it helps me to look at my story with new eyes. But Ethan and Shyanne, I do love to write and I'm so thankful to God that I get to do it for a living. Kayla, I've written about 140 books. Abby B. I'm glad you like Dragons Don't Throw Snowballs because it's perfect for this snowy day here! ttyl, Debbie

I was near New Orleans at two great schools last week. I even got to see two Mardi Gras parades while eating at Copelands in New Orleans. Then off to the Cafe DuMonde in the French Quarter for these really delicious French donuts. They had like three inches of sugar on top! They must buy powdered sugar by the truck load. Thanks to the schools for a fun time.
Did anyone see the Super Bowl? I must admit I was rooting for the Giants, since they were the underdogs. Just goes to show what never giving up will do for you. Congratulations to New Yorkers everywhere.
Libby, it takes different amounts of time to write different books. It has taken me from one week to eight years! Caressa, I'm glad you liked Cupids Doesn't Flip Hamburgers. Isn't this the perfect time of year for that book? Check out my book section for more Valentine books. Branden, I'm so glad you like Trolls Don't Ride Roller Coasters. Did you know I'm scared of roller coasters?
Skylynn and Ashely, thanks for your coooooool ideas. Emily, I get ideas from everywhere and I've written around 140 books. Mac, I'm really old. This year I'll be almost half a century old. I'll let you figure that one out.
Megan, Monifah and Lucas, you guys are totally cool. Caleigh, there's a section of my Swamp Club just for book reports. Check it out and good luck on your report.
Alyssa, you're right. I must like third grade and I think it's because I thought my third grade teacher was sooooooo mean. I got in trouble all the time for talking too much. Have you seen the Swamp Monster in Third Grade series?
Joey, check out the tips on writing on my home page link. Kevin did and he made a wild ending! Thanks to Emily, Nicholas, and Gabby for writing. Your schools are great. Nicholas, the new series Marcia and I are working on is mysterious, funny, and exciting. It will come out next year. Happy Mardi Gras! (For those who don't know, Mardi Gras is officially the day before Lent starts for Catholics. Lent is a time of trying to do good things before Easter. In New Orleans, they celebrate Mardis Gras with lots of parades and parties.) brb, Debbie

Hi, another dream came true this week! I finished a screenplay. Now, whether it will ever become a movie remains to be seen. (This writing is a tough business!) But hey, I'm a dreamer! I"m keeping my fingers crossed that some day my movie may come to a TV or theatre near you!
Estefani, Ashley, Jessi, and Paige-I'm so glad you like my books. You guys are awesome.
Breaunna, I wrote my first story while living in Kentucky. Yes, Megan, I am writing a new series. I just rewrote the first two chapters yesterday. It was so much fun. It involved someone (not a girl) in a pink tutu!
Kevin!!-you finished the story in my new writer's section. You did a fabulous job. The Golden Knife is totally cool and I really wondered what would happen next. Thanks for the funny titles too. You are very creative.
Becky, you're great. Read a book!
Jennifer, I used to live in Morganhill, CA. Ask your teacher to check out the Events section of my website. Maybe I could come to your school next year. brb, Debbie

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day to think about how we treat people. I hope I treat everyone as I'd like to be treated. How about you? It's also a day that I think about dreams. I had a dream to become a writer and it came true (with a lot of hard work)! Do you have a dream? Are you willing to work hard to make it come true?
Ayann, you're in luck. I'm getting ready (hopefully this week) to launch a new section of my website with writing activities. I think tips would be a great thing to add. Katelyn, dogs are my favorite animal. Makayla, I do like country music. "Jesus, Take the Wheel" is one of my favorites.
Hi to Sabrina. Renee, my brothers are named David and Frank. Andrea, the books I write are mostly fiction. Kevin!!, you are the first entry in the Name Mrs. Jeepers contest. I'll see if we can get something going on the homepage about it. Brenton, I liked your idea about the winner getting a phone call from me. I did answer your snail mail letter, but another package will be on your way soon. (The book that you won the dedication in, Vampires Do Hunt Marshmallow Bunnies, will be mailed tomorrow.) Brenton, I hope we can put the play on my website. Kevin!! to keep my place in my writing, I just read over what I wrote before. Ethan, I'm so glad you liked The Scariest Halloween Ever. As they say in Hawaii, hang loose, Debbie

Fun times in New York City! Marcia Jones and I met with editors on Tuesday. We came up with some exciting ideas that we can't wait to write about. You'll be seeing them in 2009! We also saw the play Curtains with Miles from Frazier as the star. It was funny.
Jaide, you can email me any questions here. Ruben, what do you want to know about Vampire Baby? I do know that John Steven Gurney used his baby as the model to draw the vampire baby's pictures. Hi to Amanda and Miles. I am so sorry about Mora.
Nikky, Mrs. Jeepers doesn't have a first name. Should we have a contest to name her? Lisa, you are an awesome reader! Allison, I've written over 130 books. You can check them out on my book section. bttyl, Debbie
