Hi Anabel and Kaylee, I have been writing books for 26 Witches Don't Do Backflipsyears!  I think it is great fun, but I do not draw the pictures.  Jamie, my niece was the inspiration for Witches Don't Do BackflipsMakena and Dominique, thanks for your fun ideas.  Have you seen Barkley's School for Dogs and Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh Rides?
     Jonathan and Jaycie, I'm so glad you enjoy the Mermaid Tales books.  Eliezra, thanks for sharing the facts about the polka dot bat fish. I'm glad you liked A Whale of a Tale.  I A Whale of a Talereally like learning about ocean creatures, don't you?  Myah, there are thirteen Mermaid Tales books so far.  Journey, I'm so glad glad you like my books.  Which series is your favorite?  Abbie, I started the Mermaid Tales series by thinking about the characters and what they might be like and drawing a map of their world.  Have a wonderful day and God bless, Debbie

Dear Grace, I found out about Cleopatra supposedly being Leprechauns Don't Play Basketballmy ancester on Ancestry.com.  I don't know how to prove it for sure, but it is kind of fun!

The Secret Sea HorseDear JJ, my grandmother inspired me to write because she always kept a diary.  I hope you will take a peek at my writing page for advice, but my best advice for someone who wants to be a writer is this:  read a lot and write a lot!
     Hi Grace, it was fun Skyping yesterday.  I get ideas for the Mermaid Tales books from everywhere, even from things that happened to me when I was a kid!  For instance, when I was in second grade I failed a spelling test.  The same thing happens to Echo in The Secret Seahorse.
     Cooper, do you think words like fintastic are too confusing to be used in my stories?  If a lot of people feel that way, I will not use them as much.  Yes, I agree there are underwater cameras, but people made those.  Vampires don't Wear Polka DotsMerpeople would not have them, would they?
     Steve, my first book, Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots, came out 26 years ago!  I wrote it with Marcia Thornton Jones.  Julia, I think someone may have been kidding me, don't you?
      Hope you all had an awesome World Read Aloud Day yesterday, but hopefully your teachers or parents will read aloud to you every day, Debbie
