 I had so much fun writing chapters 5 and 6 of Inside the Magic.  I can't wait to see if Marcia likes them.  There's one part that's really sad, and other parts that I hope are funny.

Greetings to John and all my new friends from Darien, CT.  You have a great library up there.  It was a lot easier driving home today than it was driving through NYC on a Sunday afternoon.  g2g, Debbie

 It's awesome to start on book 3 of my new series.  In this book, the kids go into the magic world.  Will they ever come out again?  That's the question I'm soon to find out.  That's what makes writing so fun, anything can happen!

Hi Stephanie.  I'm glad you liked Ghouls Don't Scoop Ice Cream.  My favorite chapter is Super Eddie!

 Hi Loretta. Yes, I do work from a chapter outline (a few sentences about each chapter.  I also do a summary and character sketches (the more important the character, the more complete the sketch). You can check out a way to get to know your character on my writing page.  My editor just made suggestions for my next book, Inside the Magic.  This is the third revision on just the outline.  She had two pages of suggestions!  It's back to the computer for me.  (And for Marcia Jones, we're writing it together.) Good luck with your writing.  Oh, yes my middle name is Sue.

Lauren, I hope you liked Leprechauns Don't Play Basketball.  Did you know I played basketball?  Every once in a while, I can still beat my youngest son. 

Brenton, just a note to let you know that last week's sample manuscript page was in the final stages.  It had notes on it from the editor about how the pictures would look. 

Guess what?  I'm making an animated video about writing.  Well, I'm assisting.  A very talented graphic artist is doing the hard part, but I did write the script.  Right now it's called Debbie Dadey's Meaty Story. I'm curious to see how it will turn out.

 I splashed in the ocean today!  I can't believe I can drive to the ocean after lunch, swim, play in the sand, and still be home before supper.  How cool is that?

Brenton from Australia, good to hear from you!  I'm so glad you're continuing to write.  Congratulations on your success.  The BSK books are about 40 pages long, double spaced, 14 point Times New Roman text.  It took 2 years to write Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips, but Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots only took two weeks!  Check out the sample manuscript page  on my writing page so you can see what it looks like.  Take care, Debbie

 A big hello to Gloria, hope you're having a great summer.  I've been working on a story about some kids who feel like no one sees them, like they don't even exist.  Do any of you guys ever feel like that? 

Georgina, I'm glad you like the Ghostville Elementary series.  It was fun to write (and a little creepy).

Mariah, welcome to the site.  Let me know what you like and don't like about the site.  The Swamp Club is getting ready to undergo a bit of a facelift and the addition of a new section.  Say hi to your sister for me. 

g2g, Debbie
