Dear Lily, I'm delighted you enjoy my books. Do you have a favorite?
     Ella, I think it would be fun for Aqua to be in both Aliens Don't Carve Jack-o-lanternsseries and have a super-power like Kiki. I'd have to do some more research on mermaids. Seeing into the future and being able to lure sailors with their singing are the only two legends I can remember about their powers. Do you know of another one? The singing thing might be a bit creepy! Ha, ha. I'm glad you got the Bailey School Kids reference in Books vs Looks. Guess what? The Bailey School Kids are being made into a live action TV series. I am so curious to see how it turns out. 
     Abigail, I didn't post your story because some younger kids might see it and be scared, but it was extremely suspenseful and gripping. I hope you'll take a peek at my writing page (the left side might appeal to you more). You might also like to look at NaNoWriMo's Young Writers program. Let me know how your writing is going and if you ever need anything. Best, Debbie

Dear Ella, The virtual conference had lots of glitches Books vs Looksand didn't run very smoothly. It was their first year and doing it virtually was pretty hard. I'm glad we have kid's talk! Hope you had fun reading Mermaid Tales stories. Did you know there are learning pages to go along with each one? Have a great week, Debbie

                                                                               Dream of the Blue TurtleDear Friends, If you want to say hi to me face to face virtually,  ask your teacher or guardian to sign up up for the Lousiville Book Festival. It's free and you only need to sign up so they can put you with the right author. I will be there today and tomorrow from 10-6 Eastern time.

     Ella, I lived in California years ago, but I lived near San Francisco. Stay safe, Debbie

Dear Ella, I'm so glad you like the illustrations. The The Polar Bear ExpressMermaid Tales are illustrated by Tatevik Avakyan. I really like the way she draws! She lives in California and I've never met her. My publisher selected her and I'm glad they did. The first two Mini Mermaid Tales books are written, so I was thinking about Aqua as the main character in the third book, which would come out in fall of 2022. Isn't it strange how long it takes for a book to come out? Best, Debbie

Sleepover at the Haunted MuseumDear Ella, The first Mini Mermaid Tales book won't come out until 2022! The next Mermaid Tales book will come out next June. Is is called Sleepover at the Haunted Museum! Here is a sneak peek at what it is about. Mermaid Tales book #22 will come out in 2022. As with all book series, a book #23 will depend on sales. I'm hopeful I'll get to write #23, but I am not sure. That is why I suggested Aqua might work well in the Mini Mermaid Tales series. There will be eight of them. Rocky is the cousin of one of the main characters. Wanda is the sister of another one. Stay safe and have fun writing, Debbie
