Debi has recently adopted a Jack Russell and thinks he too dreams of dragons.
He often stares at the dragon statues in Debi's garden as if he has some kind of sixth sense. We wonder what he's thinking....?
We are currently writing Book 6 The Hidden Realm. Keep an eye on the news page to see when it's out

Hi My son's school was recently visited by Debi Evans. His name is Tiano. He is only 6 but was fortunate enough to be included in the visit as he is a gifted reader. He is usually a very self conscious shy child but whatever Debi did seems to have inspired him as he is completely captivated and has spoken of nothing since. He has always been a great story teller and we have spent many a morning listening to his fantasies but Ive never been able to persuade him to write them down - until now! He was clearly inspired and its so lovely to see him relish his gift with such enthusiasm. I really wanted to thank her for that. I am in process of sourcing all the books for him but he is also talking about 'dragonoar'??? I feel I should be more informed and I apologise for this ignirance but - what/where/how does he get his?? Please advise so I can help him get his wish!! With sincerest thanks in anticipation of your response Gio the very proud mum of Tiano & Santino, not yet reading at this level but a future fan Im sure!!
I loved your 5 book it was amazing it was my favourite one i wonder when you will publish your 6 book and come back to safa cant wait
lots of love Maleeha xxxxxxxxxx
I am Luke & Becky Gillroy's Grandmother, who lives in Australia, and I love to visit my Grandchildren, Luke & Becky Gillroy, at their school, Al Yasmina in Abu Dhabi. My daughter, Danielle Gillroy, is a teacher in year 4 at the same school where you visited yesterday. We all believe in Dragons and I am planning a special place at the bottom of my garden for my Dragon. He will live in the 'Jasmine House' that is covered in sweet smelling white and cream Jasmine flowers in Spring. Do Dragons also like good fairies? I do and hope that my Dragon will protect them as I will protect him. I will love reading the Dragon Story books to my Grandchildren when I come to Abu Dhabi to visit.
My name is Nanna Ros Munro from Queensland in Australia and I am 70 years old. My Grandchildren are really excited as they are looking forward to seeing me on the map in Australia as a Dragon Protector. Just as my name sake, the little 11 year old boy Angus Munro, I too have a passion for Dragons.
Thank you for the opportunity you have given me to help protect Dragons.
I just finish reading your 5th book and it is awesome! I felt so sorry for Georgina but it made me want to read more! I think Angus and Pyrra are a good team and that Angus and Georgina are perfect for each other ! I even came up with my own dragon. Her name is Snowflake, she is light blue and an Ice dragon. She can breath Ice(Instead of fire) and get glimpses of what is happening to someone that is important at the moment! Her soul goes to the area but her body is left behind and when she does she curls up in a ball and her wings wrap around her for more protection. But the best part of her is that she is Loving, caring and cheerful!
Love all your books
Hi, I love your books!! I even came up with my own dragon, try to picture her in your head, Her name is Juliet, She is red, and her wings are a shade of red and yellow, she has to horns on her head with her ears just behind it, She also has blue eyes and can breath fire and ice!
Every day I think she’s right beside me (even when I sleep)
When I get board, I talk to Juliet.
Oh yeah, before I forget you visited my school, Wellington international school in Dubai. Do you remember? When I read your books, I felt so alive, my eyes were glued to the pages, the books are exciting and full of adventure!
So when is your next book coming out??
I hope it’s soon, I can’t wait!! JJJJJ
From your biggest fan, Jessica J
The children had a fabulous time! They were still talking about your visit all day Thursday and were so proud to show off their dragon ore!
We are going to be doing some creative writing this week about dragons and I am sure that your visit will have planted a few seeds for developing their stories!
Look forward to the new book coming out! The kids are begging me to read the first one with them and I have promised we will as soon as we finish the book we are half way through. They looked at me in disgust and wanted me to abandon Mr Gum completely!
Thanks again for visiting.
I do believe in dragons and I am starting to write a story about the called The Dragon’s Crystal. Because you came to our school on Thursday 15/07/10 and I loved your assembly.
I am a HUGE fan of your books

Saw you today at ramsbury school thought you were fab but wish I could by a book ,but my mum didn't give me any money.
hi! I have just finished reading "the city guardians" it was really good, funny, exciting and entertaining! Thank you by the way for giving me a signed copy. I realized every one of your books that I have (which is all except the first) have your signatures in the front cover! I was reading the last few pages and I realized you used the name I suggested for Rhys's baby! I was wondering are they boys or girls? The ending was very mysterious so i will be waiting for the next one!
i'm jake and i bort one of your books and i have just starteding and it's great AWESOME!!!!!!
by the im' at raha and
thanks so much for righting them
I love the secret society of dragon protectors. I have finished the first book and loved it, so I’m looking for the second book.
Hello,my name is Dalia and i think that Debi Evans knows Mahra from Emirates International School who is my little sister and she lent me book one. I am very interested in books about dragons, I have read Christopher Paolini's books which were amazing and plenty other such books. Born in England I just have to take a short trip to Waterstones to get them.
To tell the truth, I just couldn't let go of the book one of the secret society of dragon protectors which I finished in a matter of hours because it was just splendid and thoroughly funny, very well described and very interesting to read (I'm on my way Magrudy's to get the others!) and you're a great book mastermind!
Sorry but I wanted to join and get a certificate but I just couldn't find the link.
hi thanks for letting me be a member and my cousin Anamta and I cant take are eyes of your books they rock like hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are awsome fab super and brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just a quick note to say many thanks for sorting the book for Georgina.
It made her Christmas and she was found tucked up on her bed reading it on Christmas day!
Already read twice she is now waiting with baited breath for the next book!
Dear Debi and John
I just wanted to say hi, and that your books are amazing. Even though I have not gotten to read book three, I still think you guys are great and inspirational. Just in case you are wondering which member I am, I am member 149, I just moved to the Philippines and miss my friends from Horizon school. Hope you are going on well and keep writing those amazing and truly magnificent stories. I promised myself to Dragon protecting and will carry on my search even through my daily life and school and at home
From a fellow Dragon Protector
the shadow in time is ausome me and all my friends love it to bits i cant believe you can write something like this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hannah
to debi and john
i thought book three was great!!!!!!!!!!!!! i finished it in approximately 2 days!
i think it is the best book so far!
yours in dragon protecting conor
I’m sorry for the daily letters but I couldn’t wait…Thank you so much for entering me into Anguses world and yes of course I would adore to become a member. I’ve just thought that you could actually write Dragonalia filling in every loose gap that you have left unsewn about dragons. Mummy Daddy and I all think that you are much better at writing and drawing (trust us were experts) than J.K Rowling and eagerly await the arrival Christmas so we can ask for the second and third book. ‘This is the best series of books we’ve ever read!’ The Dubai children Independent.
From an SSDP member called Martha.
I know everyone was enthralled by your stories.
So glad you were able to share your talents with us.

I live in Dubai and I'm 10 years old. I belive in dragon, and I still will when I'm 90. My favorite thing to do is read, I read your books in the car, at night, at home, even at school.
Dear Debi, many thanks from the staff and children in yr4 Jess. We enjoyed your talk and your books seems to be a big hit with our children. I wish you every success with your future releases. Regards, Diana Lund.
Dear Debi and John,
Are you going to make a movie out of these books? If so, I'm sure they're going to be very exciting. =)
Diane here I met you the other day when you came to Royal Dubai school.
the children were very excited by your talk and went dragon mad for the rest
of the week!
I am so glad your book has done so well and wish you all the best for the
next eight, any plans to bring unicorns to life in any of your books? the
girls would go crazy for that one.
I absolutly love your book. I cant wait to read the next one. do you know the procise date that the second book is coming out yet? because I hope its near
from one of your many fans Amy
I’ve had great feedback from everybody; teachers, parents and especially the children. They really enjoyed your visit and are keen to join the SSDP.(
Thanks and regards,
Thank you for providing fun and inspiration to our pupils. It was a real pleasure to have you in school and we will be delighted to see you again. I am really looking forward to book 2 and I know the children will be too. I hope we can show you a dragon’s nest the next time you come!
Sue (Head Royal Dubai School)
Corky[nickname, my real name is cormac] here! To start off I want to say that I am a firm believer in dragons. Before I got tour book from Wellington International School I was doing the best I could to collect the Dragonology series. But I haven't been getting much luck. Only Dragonology itself and Bringing up baby dragons. Both of these books I fully trust but your book simply tips both of them! Oh and John, GREAT PICS! Debi, I ain't leaving you out, you gave a speech at my school, EXCELLENT! I also love how you two work together both writing one book, I've never heard of it! Oh and I have some Ideas too. Maybe you could have like a short epilogue book, say, it could include Pic's of all of the dragons in book one or somethin'. You could also have somthin' in the 3rd book[yes I know your writing it.] like the story Dragon Rider well not exact, say... you could have an evil knight obsessed with wiping all dragons off the face of the Earth but he didn't succeed then say, some weird event sends him to our time and he continues his obsession in our time.
I just wanted to say thank you as well for what your books have done for my son. You came to his school last week, st nicolas, he is 9 an has asperges. He is a very good reader but loses interrested very easily. Not your books though, he is now at book number three and almost finished, it also seems to have made him want to write stories of his own. Which is great. He came to watch you in the big hall at school which he hardly ever goes in with all the other children, for someone wo doesn't do noise and crowds this a great. Any way thanks we are really gratefull.
