Hey Ryan, so glad you like the Barkley School for Dogs books. Guess what? I had a beagle when I was your age. His name was Spike. I loved him so much. He was such a good dog. I would hug him and pet him and tell him all my troubles. He always listened with his big sad eyes. I guess that's why I have three dogs today. They are good friends. I'm sorry to say that I'm not writing anymore Barkley School for Dogs books. There were 12 books in all, but perhaps you might like to read some of my Bailey School Kids books. There's a dog named Comet in several of them such as Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips and lots of dogs in Leprechauns Don't Play Fetch. Best of luck to you while you're in the hospital. I'll be thinking of you and keep you in my prayers. I look forward to hearing from you again.

Beatrice, I will be visiting Australia, but not until July of 2008 for World Youth Day with my church. I'd love to come sooner though. Check with your teacher.

Simone, did you know I took karate lessons when I wrote Angels Don't Know Karate?

Amber, you can order my books directly from my site if you'd like. If your school library doesn't have some, suggest them to your librarian.

Whoopee! Only one more day until my son comes home for Thanksgiving. We can hardly wait. Meanwhile, I have 400 books to sign for a musical program in our town called Cranberry Pops. The symphony is doing a special concert for kids, complete with activities and free books. You can find out more about it at www.lctix.com .

Take care and don't stay up as late as I did last night reading! Debbie

Happy Thanksgiving!

Welcome to my new site. Thanks so much to Fred for all his hard work. We're still changing things so keep coming back. As for me, I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving. My son Nathan will be home from college, so we'll really be celebrating. Believe it or not, I already have my table set.

I just got back to Colorado from a trip to Kentucky. It was my mom's 70th birthday and we surprised her with a party. I think she loved it, but she liked the bagpiper we hired the best. She always said she wanted one at her funeral, so we decided she should have one before then. She cried and said, "I'm not even dead yet!"

Shhh! I've been working on a new series. I think it will be a lot of fun. Marcia Jones and I are doing it together. Unfortunately it will be quite a while before it becomes a real book. Meanwhile, we do have a new series called the Bailey School Kids Junior Chapter Books. The newest one is Reindeers Do Wear Striped Underwear. I thought the title was funny.

Here are some messages to friends who wrote me:

Hi to Daniela!
Julia, I'm glad you like Dragons Don't Throw Snowballs. Do you know that I visited a school where they actually did get snowed in and had to spend the night at school?
Sabrina-I have won a few awards. I think they are listed on the book page.

Happy Thanksgiving! Debbie
