 hot sun    Look out California, here I come!  I'm visiting a school there this week.  I wonder if it's as hot there as it is here.  omg, I thought we were going to burn up at soccer games yesterday and I was sitting in the Aliens Don't Wear Bracesshade!  
     Ashley, I'm glad you liked Aliens Don't Wear Braces, my 7th book.  I actually wore braces for four years!  Carlee, my fourth book was Leprechauns Don't Play Basketball and my 30th book was Hercules Doesn't Pull Teeth. Madison, I have lots of favorite books, like my new Keyholder series This Side of Magicthat somes out on Friday.  The first one is This Side of Magic and I'm pretty excited about it.  Bryanna, I hope you'll like it. 
     Trinity, thanks for your good idea.  Did you know I wrote Mermaids Don't Run Track?  Brittany, please write to me at Scholastic 557 Broadway NY, NY 10012 and I'd be happy to send you an Genies Don't Ride Bicyclesautograph.  Sheamus, my most popular book so far has been Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  Gam, I'l glad you liked Genies Don't Ride Bicycles.  It's my mom's favorite too.  I don't always write with a partner.  For instance, The Worst Name in Third Grade I wrote by myself.  In my spare time, I like to garden, play tennis, and read.  Stay cool, Debbie

     flowersHappy Earth Week!  Hurrah for our beautiful planet.  Let's keep it the best we can.  I was surprised when I read these facts in Dear Abby the other day:  It takes this long for these things to decompose-
Paper-2 to 5 months   Milk cartons-5 years
Tin cans-100 years     Aluminum cans-200 to 500 years
Styrofoam-never!
Now, I really know how important recycling can be.  I certainly don't want our earth covered in trash.  I hope you recyle.  I do!                                                  Vampires don't Wear Polka Dots
     Hi Madison, Lauren, Toni Marie, Elianna, and Kristianna.  I'm so glad you liked Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots.  It is of course, one of my favorites too.  The Swamp Monster in Third Grade is another.
     Zariah, I have a BIG birthday this year on May 18th.  Yesenai, I'm so glad you like my books. Shannon, what's Swamp Monster in Third Gradeyour question?  Jack, your school is cool!  Connor D., my grandmother, Lillie Bailey, was an inspiration to me.  I thought it was neat that she kept a diary.  Paramveer, I'm glad you like Snow Monsters Do Drink Hot Chocolate.
     Brittany, thanks for your great idea and for meeting me by your school door.  I'm glad you liked Werewolves Don't Go to Summer CampWerewolves Don't Go To Summer CampWrite me a letter and I'd be happy to send you my autograph.  You can send it to me at Scholastic 557 Broadway NY, NY 10012. 
     Morgan, I live in Pennsylvania, but I was born in Kentucky.  I think writing is fun because anything can happen-you can make a magic world like in my new Keyholders series.  I got started Pirates Don't Wear Pink Sunglassesjust by writing one story about my dad (it was never published).  I'm glad you liked PIrates Don't Wear Pink Sunglasses.  I went to a school one time and every kid wore a pair a pink sunglasses.  It was funny.  Jamie, I can't wait to see the surprise you have for me in California.  brb, Debbie

Keyholders inside sketch     Hi, hope you are enjoying a few days off from school.  It's always nice to have a break.  My kids only had three days off.  For some reason, they don't get a spring break.  That doesn't seem right! 
     Have you seen my new Keyholder's page?  The books are available at the end of this month, but you can hear a little bit from the first three on my podcast.  Just scroll down and click to play.
     Sanika and Lindsey, I'm so glad you like my books.  I have lots Mermaids Don't Run Trackof favorites.  One of my favorite chapters is the last one in Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream.  Heather, I'm so glad you like it.  Another favorite chapter is the last one in Mermaids Don't Run Track.
     Heather and Amanda, you are thinking of my Whistler's Hollow book, based on something that happened to my grandmother.  I hope you'll read the book from your school library to find out what's in the attic.  I will tell you that there were no dead bodies!  Amanda, I usually write in my office Ogres Don't Hunt Easter Eggsat home.  I'm in it right now, I look out over my back yard and I have monkey curtains that are very cheerful!  In fact, the whole room is cheerful-it's gold/orange!  You can see part of it on my writing page if you scroll down.
     Annette, I was the only girl in my family too.  At family get-to-gethers it was boy city!  I had two brothers and all boy cousins.  Bob, thanks for your funny idea!  Vampires Do Hunt Marshmallow BunniesBrooke, I've written a couple of Easter books, like Ogres Don't Hunt Easter Eggs and Vampires Do Hunt Easter Eggs.  Vivian, I do like to read.  I just recently read Kiki Strike and reread This Side of Magic.  Both were fun books!  ttyl, Debbie
