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

Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh RidesHi Rachael, I LOVE your idea because I love horses.  I have written a couple of books about horses with my friend Marcia like Ghosts Don't Ride Wild Horses and Unicorns Don't Give Sleigh Rides.  Hope you might like to read one of them.  Happy WRAD16, Debbie (World Read Aloud Day 2016)

Dear Destiny, there will be three more new Mermaid Tales books out this year.  The one about Echo, Twist and Shout,Twist and Shout will come out in May.  One about Kiki (Books VS Looks) comes out in Sept. and one about Pearl (where Mr. Fangtooth finally gets married!) will come out in December.  I'm excited!  Thanks so much for your nice words.
     Hi Julia, it would be fun to visit the bookstore near where you live!  Maybe they will invite me!  Have an awesome Saturday, Debbie

Hi Julia, If you have a local bookstore ask about Trouble at Trident Academy there.  If they don't have it, they can order it for you.  Otherwise, your parents or guardians can always order it online.  Happy Friday!!  Best, Debbie
