Dear Ella L, Here's a little snippet from Aqua's story: 

“W-w-what are you doing?”  Morgan swam into their back yard. Sometimes her older sister had troubleThe Polar Bear Express with her words.

            “I’m thinking about riding a dolphin,” Aqua said.

            “N-no wavy way!” Morgan told her. “You might get hurt.”

Keep in mind that it might change! Your ideas are great. Kiki and Aqua will end up being great mer-friends I think. Have a fintastic weekend, Debbie

Dear Ella, My hair is ombre right now, but not on purpose. I haven't had hightlights in my hair or had my hair cut professionally in almost a year because of the pandemic! I have finished working on Aqua's story, unless my editor wants me to rewrite it. I'm not sure exactly what she'll look like yet, but she'll probably look a bit like her sister, Morgan, and Aqua will be small for her age. Have a wonderful day and God bless, Debbie

Dracula Doesn't Drink LemonadeDear Leah M, I am not an illustrator. I write the words. Right now I am working on two books. 
Fanta, the first thing to do to write a story is to come up with an idea. To get an idea you can brainstorm about things that you like, hate, or really enjoy. Let me know when  you've come up with an idea.
     Kenneth, Marcia and I were teachers at the same school. I hoe you liked Dracula Doesn't Drink Lemonade. Ryleigh, writing is my full-time job. IBooks vs Looks used to be a teacher and then a school librarian. Jonah, I like funny books too. 
     Ella L., the illustrator will get to decide for sure about Aqua's tail, but I was thinking ombre. We don't usually get much snow, so we had a surprise! Adeline, wow! You must be a really good reader. I hope you enjoy Mermaid Tales #15.  Have a great World Read Aloud Day, Debbie

The Winter PrincessDear Ella, I imagine it will be a while before I get to see any sketches of Aqua for the new series, Mini Mermaid Tales. I'll share them when I get them. 
     We don't get a lot of snow where I live, but we received about 5 inches yesterday! It's a winter wonderland. Did you get any? Best, Debbie

Dear Ella, Guess what? I've been thinking about  writing a new dragon story! Some of myDragons Don't Cook Pizza other dragon stories are Dragons Don't Cook Pizza and The Keyholder series. Dragons are great fun to write about! 
     But of course, so are mermaids! I do a character sketch before I start writing a new story to learn a bit about the character. I know that Aqua wishes she had a regular tail. Her's is not blue and it's not green-it's a mix. We first find out that Rocky is adopted in the Winter Princess. Hope you have a great week! God bless, Debbie
