Hi Melissa, Debbie, and Oji!  Ira, I think we all feel stupid sometimes.  It's very normal and part of being human.  In fact, I'm writing a story right now about a kid who feels rather stupid, but finds out she can change the world in a unique way.
     Yuna, I like to write too!  Perhaps you'd like to visit my writing page.  Yes, Lauren!  I am really A Tale of Two Sisters Mermaid Tales #10ready for warm spring weather!  Lynae, I love books too.  Do you have a favorite?
     David, I'm so glad you like my stories.  Andrew, I wish I could write perfectly the first time, but I do a lot of rewriting to make my stories better.  Octavi, my newest book is called A Tale of Two Sisters.  If you have a brother or sister you know how hard it can be to get along sometimes.  In this Mermaid Tales book, Echo and her sister have an epic fight! 
     Kaylo, I'm having a good day so far, I'm hoping my favorite basketball team (the University of Kentucky will win win tonight!)  Loffy, my favorite color is blue.  Have a great weekend and God bless, Debbie

Hi Yemmi, the idea for my very first book came Vampires don't Wear Polka Dotsfrom a bad day.  My friend, Marcia Jones and I joked that if we were monster teachers all the kids in our classes would behave.  We thought it would be fun to write a story about a teacher who really was some sort of monster and that's where Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots came from!  Hope you'll like it.  Have a wonderful weekend, Debbie

Hi Lauren!  Your prologue can be how ever many pages you'd like it to be.  I am not a fan of prologues and perfer to start right with the action, but some people like them.  I think short is usually better for a prologue.  It depends on the style you are using and the size of print of the finished book, but I usually have three pages of typed manuscript that transfers to 3-4 pages of my Mermaid Tales books.  You might want to use this story elements chart to help.  Have fun writing, Debbie
