Debbie Dadey is the author and co-author of 166 traditionally published books. Debbie’s first book, Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots, was co-authored with Marcia Thornton Jones after a bad teaching day. They joked that if they grew ten feet tall, spouted horns and fangs the kids at their school could pay attention. That book grew into the long-running series, The Adventures of the Bailey School Kids.
Debbie’s newest series is the STEM-friendly Mermaid Tales. As a former teacher and school librarian, Debbie enjoys visiting schools to encourage reading and writing. She has received awards including the Sunshine State Young Reader Award, ABC Best Book, and IRA Children’s Choice.
Debbie currently resides in Tennessee and her website is www.debbiedadey.com.
