With my novel BIG MOUTH debuting in stores, the time has come to launch the “Me and My Big Mouth” behind-the-book blog series. And I figured the most appropriate way to launch this sneak-peek series would be to interrupt it with a commercial break before it even gets started. After all, BIG MOUTH is full […]
Look out, Anne Geddes, I am now a photographer . . . of boiled tube meat. Yes, I know, you thought I was a writer. And I am. But my second novel BIG MOUTH is about competitive hot dog eating, and I’m creating a website about it that will go live in a few days, […]
Do you prefer your radio with ketchup or mustard? I suppose it doesn’t matter, actually, as I’ll be serving up both—along with a generous helping of hot dogs and BIG MOUTH anecdotes—on ESPN 1600 AM Radio’s “Live with Lisa on The Daily Flow Show” this coming Saturday morning. (12:00 EST, 10:00 Central, 9:00 PST) The […]
Another book signing for BIG MOUTH! This is will be an afternoon affair, with me reading from the book and giving a talk. This one is extra special because it’s in Mira Mesa, the part of San Diego that I grew up in. Saturday, July 12 2:00 – 3:00 pm Barnes & Noble – Mira […]
Hey Bobcats! Thanks for a great visit in Mrs. Prato’s class. Even with the end of the year closing in, you were all ears and questions and great ideas. I had a great time. As promised, here are the links to
It pays to talk frequently about one’s obsession with See’s chocolate. Tonight I came home from a meeting and several hours of writing to find a house of sleeping men and two packages awaiting me on the counter. The first package, a very big box, was from a writer who’d suffered through my many monologues […]
My first book signing for BIG MOUTH is scheduled! Tuesday, July 1 4:00 – 5:00 pm Borders – Gaslamp (Downtown San Diego) 668 6th Ave. San Diego, CA 92101 Phone: 619.702.4200
…and at least one reader likes it. From Sebco Books‘ Student Reviewer Program: ??????JHADE 6th Grade Rochester, NY Book Review: Big Mouth Author: Halverson, Deborah Publisher: Delacorte “This book is amazing!
I dedicated my first novel, HONK IF YOU HATE ME, to my mom with the line “For my mom, who showed me that girls can do anything.” My mom has always been my role model. She raised four daughters, she joined the work force at a time when “working woman” was synonymous with “secretaries who […]
Operation Facelift continues: I have re-relaunched the new & improved www.DeborahHalverson.com. Yes, you internet-savvy Americans (or wherever you hail from), thanks to the fine programmers of Dreamweaver 8, the optimistic authors of the 900-page tome “Dreamweaver for Dummies,” and the tireless patience of lifelong “pull Deborah from the flames of her own ineptitude” friend Theresa […]
The San Diego Children’s Book Festival is this Sunday, May 4, 10:00-4:30. It’s a free event for families and teens. I’ll be on the teen panel at 3:00 in the Library Community Room and signing HONK IF YOU HATE ME afterward. Other authors and illustrators there will include David Shannon, Gerald McDermott, Janell Cannon, Bruce […]
It’s true that writers must suffer for their art. Take me, for instance. Since I’ve become a writer, I’ve had to see how many hot dogs I could eat in an hour and then write about how I felt (nauseous), eat as much of the world’s biggest Cold Stone hot fudge sundae as I could […]
Update: The “new” www.DeborahHalverson.com website is back in the shop for repairs. The old one is up and running as before.
My website just got a new look! After a few months of tinkering in my “spare time” (and desperately thumbing through a 900-page “Dreamweaver for Dummies” book), I have revamped and now relaunched my main website, www.DeborahHalverson.com. Check it out and let me know what you think. Do keep in mind, though,
A big HEY! and a high five to the sixth graders of Gaspar de Portola Middle School. Thanks so much for a fun morning. You have the most fantastic ideas for stories, and that humdinger you told about Mrs. Weiner’s accidental lock-out was hilarious. I’m glad you were all able to escape the classroom; thank […]
