Dear Sandy and Corey, I think you girls are very lucky! I Mermaids Don't Run Trackalways wanted to have a sister. Sandy, you are so sweet to read to your sister. Corey, I like red hair too! I am so glad you are enjoying the Adventures of the Bailey School Kids books. Do you have a favorite?
     Kaleigh, I know how you feel. I have had ideas that I have seen turn up in other books. One series even has illustrations that look a lot like the Bailey School Kids books! Ideas are not copyrighted though. Names would probably depend on how unique the names are. I hope you'll check out my writing page. At the bottom you will find magazines that publish kid's stories. That is a great place to start. Good luck! Best, Debbie

Dear Jenna, I'm so glad you are enjoying the Mermaid Tales books. You are so nice to share with your friend! Fairy ChaseGuess what? The next Mermaid Tales book comes out on Tuesday! It is Fairy Chase. Echo wants to find a fairy. Do you think she'll find one with Rocky's help?
     Kamea, I wish you good luck with your writing. I'm impressed that you are reading the Chilldren's Writers and Illustrator's Market Guide. It is a great place to start as is the Society of Children's Writers and Illustrators. You might also find some useful things on my writing page. Best, Debbie

Dear JK, I would love to sign all your books. Perhaps your librarian could invite me to your school. My next book The Royal Teasigning is this coming Saturday (May 26th) in Sevierville, TN at the Bookmarket in the Tanger Outlets from 12-2:00. Hope we get to meet some day.
     Refia, I think we are probably all related to royalty if we go back far enough. According to Ancestry.com I am related to several different kings and queens! I hope you enjoyed The Royal Tea. Have a super duper day, Debbie

Dear Penny, I haven't started the third MerStyle magazine. If you are interested in writing for it, please study the first and second magazine.  You'll notice they are short and have themes like: royalty, manners, or a place to visit. Pick one that relates to a Mermaid Tales book and send your article (that you've read and reread and edited) to me. Best, Debbie
