Here I am sitting at home typing on my computer and I'm saying hi to kids all over the world.  How cool is that? 

Greetings to Haclecya in Australia and Manula (and Mrs. S.) in British Columbia.  Haclecya, I'm coming to World Youth Day next summer in Australia.  Of course I'd love to visit your school as well as Jayce's.  Yes Jayce, there are 51 numbered BSK books, but there are a bunch of Super Specials and Holiday Specials. 
 
Danna and Alexis, I was born in 1959 in Kentucky.  Katelyn, thanks for your ideas.  The first BSK idea came from a really bad day at the school where I taught.  Kevin, check out Mrs. Zork at http://debbiedadey.com/upload/draw_along_with_mrs._zork.pdf  in the Swamp Club.  Every month for the next year we're going to add more drawing activities. Sorry, I don't give out my private email address. It's just for my editor to ask me to write more books! 
 
Kevin!!  Glad you like my books.  You're cool.
 
Xavier, my bio is in my hardback books, like Whistler's Hollow and Cherokee Sister.
Hi to Lacey, Alejandro, Annie, Amanda, and Mora.  Annie, I hope you liked The Worst Name in Third Grade.  Do you think I should write another book about Bridgett? 
 
Grant, you are an awesome big brother!!  Danielle, I'm glad your SwampMonster Grandma had fun at writing night.  Thanks so much for your funny ideas.
 
hope you like the Swamp Monster in Third Grade book.
 
My mom and my aunt are coming to visit this week.  My aunt lives in Kansas and my mom lives in Kentucky.  They both used to teach school.  Maybe I'll learn something this week! 

Stay cool, Debbie

Happy May Day!  The countdown has begun to the end of school!  Can you feel the excitement?  Summer is just around the corner, but first I get to visit some schools.  This week I'll be in Cheyenne, Wyoming having some fun at Rossman Elementary. 
 
My webmasters have been magically adding things to my site.  Check out the Swamp Club .  There's wallpaper you can add to your computer screen.  There are a bunch of different choices-you can even pick your favorite Bailey School Kids character.  Also, there's a new trivia game.  Some of the questions are easy-but some are hard!  How well do you REALLY know the Bailey School kids books?  And don't miss the new DRAWING WITH MRS. ZORK section and Werewolf fun .  Carley, Brittany, and Oyin can check the Swamp Club for help with your book reports.
 
Brittany, I'd love to visit Canada again.  Just get your teachers to invite me.  You can snail mail me at 557 Broadway New York, NY 10012.
 
Nicole and Caroline, the next Bailey School Kids book will be Mrs. Jeepers Creepy Christmas and it answers the question of exactly what is in the box in Mrs. Jeepers' basement!
 
Kevin, you are on a roll with your awesome first chapter.  As for help with writing I'm working on adding a writing section to this site.  Keep your eyes out for it.  I'm slow so it will probably take me a while.
 
SchoolDogsOllie, you might like to try one of my Barkley School for Dogs books.
 
Hello to Amanda, Lauren, Lolli, Sarah, and Abby.  Amanda, just get your teachers to invite me to come to your school.  Lauren, you rock too!
 
Voilanut, check recent postings for the outline to The Worst Name in Third Grade.  I'll see if I can dig up a BSK outline for you.  Marybeth, I've written and sold about 132 books.
 
Cory, I love to read.  I think that's why I wanted to write.  Lauren, I had fun at your school.  I will consider writing a sequel to Whistler's Hollow.  Thank you for asking.  Enjoy the first of May and wish me luck on selling my house. 
 
Here's a quote for you:  "Shoot for the moon, at the very least you'll land among the stars."  Les Brown
 
Take care, Debbie

Wow, the last two weeks have flown by.  I went to Pennsylvania to look for a new house and then I went to California to visit Newcastle Elementary and to speak at the Golden Reader Luncheon.  The kids were great.  It's close to Sacramento and the area was very pretty. 

Now, I'm back in Colorado and determined to work hard this week on my screenplay.  I will also be visiting a school in Livermore, Colorado to talk about my new book, The Worst Name in Third Grade. 
 
Greetings to Oyin, Aricia, Mrs. Cherry, Miranda, Clarie, Bob, Kevin, and Rachel, Kimmy, Rachal, Sarah, Cellan, Koko, Jessica, Tirzah, Brittany (and Ollie).  Brittany, my favorite new book is the Worst Name in Thrid Grade. (I haven't heard from your teachers yet about a visit.)
 
Aaliijah, Hi back to you.  I'm glad you like my books.  Courtney, my favorite flower is a rose.  I was born in 1959.
 
Alexandra, my first book was Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  Amber, watz up with you?  Ask your librarian if she can order The Worst Name in Third Grade.  My favorite BSK character is Eddie.
 
Amanda there were 5 people in my family growing up.  I had two brothers.  Liza is LI (long i) and za (short a).
 
Rebecca, I think Coach Waterford loves the sea.  Don't you?
 
Kayla, it takes different amounts of time to write different books.  Some go quickly and some take longer.  It took one week to write Dracula Doesn't Rock and Roll.  It took eight years to write Cherokee Sister.
 
Thanks Monikaa for your fun title.  Yes, Andrew I do like writing the Bailey School Kids books.  I love thinking up crazy things for Eddie to do. 
 
Lucy and Amber, here's a link for book reports that might be helpful.  Just click on it:  http://debbiedadey.com/Swamp/BookReport.php
 
Karleigh and Jalline, I am older than DVDs!.
 
Hope the soccer and baseball seasons are going well for you.  I can't believe Eddie has his birthday already.  (It was April 15th).  My birthday is just around the corner on May 18th.  Take care, Debbie

 Greetings to all you crazy kids (and normal ones too). I hope you all had a great Easter and got lots of chocolate bunnies. I ate a piece of chocolate cake and got a stomache ache! 

Britanny, I'm glad you had a good Easter. I've written 132 books (I've never baked any!).  I think some of my books are in Braille.  Look on the teacher's site for bookmarks for The Worst Name in Third Grade. They should be up today. Maybe you could give them to your teacher.  It would be cool to visit your school, but your teachers have to invite me.

Alexandrea, I like to ski too.  I hurt my knee so I didn't get to ski alot this year.

Hi to Amanda and Mora, stay cool in kindergarten. Leslie, I love to read-that's why I like to write. You have to snail mail me for an autograph. Check recent posts for the address. My first book came out in 1990.

Brenton, I asked my editor about your suggestion (which I loved), but no word yet. Editors are often quite slow. (They have a lot of work to do).The book is not out yet that's dedicated to you. The best suggestion I can give you to help your stores is: READ THEM OUT LOUD. It's a good way to find mistakes. I think I should make a section of this website with tips for writing. What do you think?

Yes, Olivia, sometimes writing is hard.  Kevin, I love your titles.They're cool. Here's where I live: Click HERE 

Howdy to Maria, Nora,Lynn, and Kevin with the crazy sister.  Oyin, how cool that you were born in Nigeria. Brittany, I was born in Kentucky and went to college there too. I do love books. Look out Pennslyvania, I'm coming to visit this week, Debbie

Are you doing a book report on me like Chloe?  Check out http://debbiedadey.com/Swamp/BookReport.php for a  cool form to use for your report.  I hope to add pictures to that soon.  Jake, I am from Kentucky and Ethan, I was married on June 11, 1983. 

I know Tyler is doing a report because he wanted to know where I went to school.  1.  Weaverton Elementary grades 1-5 (I didn't go to kindergarten) 2.  Henderson County Middle School (6-8) 3.  Henderson County High (9-12) 4.  Western Kentucky University for undergraduate and graduate degrees   Tyler also wanted to know the best thing that ever happened to me.  Wow, that's tough.  There have been so many good things, like my faith, my family, and my passion for writing!    Caroline, I think a TV show would be cool too.  Actually, the Bailey books have been optioned once for a show, but it didn't work out.  Hopefully, it will happen again.  

Karlie, it's nice to hear from you.  I'm glad you got my note.  Freedom, my next two books are Ghostville #17 (No Haunting Zone) and Pirates DO Ride Scooters.  Cameron, Skeletons Don't Play Tubas is my favorite BSK.  Hi to Shiru!  Gavi, I'm glad you liked my postcard.  Sorry I can't send you a book.  For security sake, I can't take your address over the Internet.  Some bad guy could read it! 

Gabriella, I've written about 132 books.  My big news is that I just sold 4 more in a brand new series!  This website was developed last year and is still under construction so if you have suggestions, let me know.  I had another website that I designed about 10 years ago.  I shared it with Marcia Jones (www.baileykids.com).  Now Marcia has that website by herself.  

Brittany and Evians, do you read my books in Braille?  Claire, I loved the second grade.  But in the third grade, my teacher was mean (or at least I thought so at the time!)  Hi to Zoe, Cyndy, and Bridgett.  Stay cool, Debbie   For the second and third grade after school readers, it's LI (LONG I) and za (emphasis on the za with a long a and the z makes a z sound) for Liza.    Kevin, Brittany, and Orjin, I look forward to reading your stories.  How awesome! 

Kevin, believe it or not I knew all the songs from your sister's concert.  I do love to sing (I just don't sing well!)  There is a new game on the way, keep checking the Swamp Club for it.  You can snail mail me at 557 Broadway New York, NY  10012-3999.  (In the hallway, Mrs. Jeepers sucks Eddie's blood.  At least that what I think!)  I hope you have a great spring too!   

Take care, Debbie
