Books vs LooksYes, Yuta is Kiki's younger brother. For a while I thought he could come to Trident Academy to go to school, but that wouldn't work because then he couldn't be friends with the younger kids quite as easily. A visit would be best I think. Yuta gave Kiki the idea for the book club in Books vs Looks. Have a lovely and safe weekend. God bless, Debbie

Dear Ella, Aqua is definitely adventurous, but her older sister, Morgan, is not! That causes some problems. Yes, Morgan stutters a bit. In the pictures, she does not look Asian. Maybe Kiki's younger brother should come for a visit? Love your ideas.  Have a great day, Debbie

Dear Ella L, OOh, I do like Renee Kurilla's illustrations. They are fun and colorful. I will pass her name on to  my editor. Thanks for the suggestion! Aqua will have her own group of merfriends, but the older Mermaid Tales merkids will be friends too. Rocky, Morgan and Kiki are the first ones they meet. (Morgan is actually Aqua's sister). Have a fintastic day, Debbie

Dear Jonathan, I have so many favorites! Right now, I'm very partial to Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots

Vampires Don't Wear Polka DotsIt was my first published book. I co-authored it with my friend, Marcia Thornton Jones. It's exciting that it's been optioned for a live TV series and in audio development, but I've also some other good news that I hope to be able to announce soon! 
     Ella L, I can't wait either! That's one of the hardest parts about being a traditional author. Usually it takes years before books come out. It takes time for good edits, finding an illustrator, and the illustrator's actual work, and then the publishing. As far as I know there hasn't been an illustrator selected yet. The art director and my editor will look at estatblished children's illustrators for work that they like. Any suggestions? I'm hoping there will be more Mermaid Tales (after #22) and that Aqua will be a part of the adventures. As with all publishing, it depends on the sales of the current books. Have a super fintastic week! Your friend, Debbie

Danger in the Deep Blue SeaDear Ella, Aqua is younger than Kiki so they probably wouldn't share a dorm room, but they do become friends in the second Mini Mermaid Tales book. In fact, Kiki teaches her to speak to dolphins. I'll tell you a secret, in Mermaid Tales #22 Kiki does get a new roommate.(Unless it is changed-both of those books don't come out unti next year). I'm glad you like Wanda. Pearl can be a stinker, but I like to think that deep deep down she is nice! Have a great weekend, Debbie
