    If you have read all the SS books, then you know all the information there is to know about Joshua.

  2. If Belly Up was published on May 19, that would’ve been my bday.

    Broo I love the Spy School series, wish there be more coming.

  3. Hello I am a HUGE FAN you are such a good writer ‘ve read like every single one of your books and I wnat tp be w writer one day too in fact I already wrote my own book but its only eleven chapters like I said I’m a HUGE FAN!!!

    P.S. I didn’t use my real name for privacy

  4. Carl –

    It is very impressive that you have written a book. Eleven chapters is a lot!

  5. I’m a massive fan of yours’s Mr. Stu! I love ALL your books! Any news on the SS movie?!

  6. Prowler –

    I actually believe that my newest book, Once Upon A Tim, (coming March 1) is the funniest book that I have written. I was allowed to create a very ridiculous world for this one that is not bound by any kind of logic at all, and so, I was able to make any joke I wanted.

  7. Nikhil –

    I don’t really feel that killing off a character in any of my books would be adding anything to the stories.

  8. Grant Kaplan –

    Ben and Erica are in their early teens. They’re not getting married any time soon.

  9. How do you make the front cover of your books? Also, how do you print and publish your books?

  10. Do you plan your books ahead of time? If so, how do you do it? or else how do you know about when your books are going to be released? (sorry for the overload of questions, just curious)

  11. LE McKenney –

    My covers are designed by Lucy Cummins, who works for my publisher. That same publisher handles all the printing, shipping and marketing.

  12. Agent 924011

    Yes, I plan my books out well ahead of time. I start brainstorming ideas and outlining uo to a year before i start writing.

    I work with my publisher on a release schedule up to two years ahead of time.

  13. Hello Mr. Gibbs!

    Just a quick question, where did you get your inspiration to write a series about spys?

  14. Agent 57129

    Please see my FAQ page for the inspiration stories for all of my series.

  15. Mr Gibbs,

    Have you ever gotten stuck writing and couldn’t come up with the plot. It’s happened to me before when I wrote my own book inspired by the funjungle series. But anyway how were you able to keep going?

  16. Seddy Fitzcracken –

    Everyone gets writer’s block now and then. I generally avoid much of it by spending a lot of time working out my stories and outlining before I ever start the writing process. If I still get stuck, then I go outline again — or take a walk to think about the story that i want to tell.

  17. Hi. I really love your books and I’m exited to see what comes next from all of your series. My favorite characters are Erica Hale, Porthos and Summer McCraken (I hope I spelled those all correctly). I’m would love to know any information about a movie you have. But I saw above that you don’t really have anything about that. And that’s okay. I would personally love to see a Spy School/Charlie Thorne or Funjungle movie. But I also think that they could work as a show with like 10 episodes or something like that. What are your thoughts on that? P.S. I hope I Didn’t distract you from writing some EPIC books just right now.

  18. Calebwhois13 –

    I am up for any version of my books being turned into a movie or Tv show.

  19. Mr.Gibbs my sister said that you came to my school I while ago. It is called The Pembroke Hill School in KC, Missouri. Have you been there?

    P.S. I know you probably don’t remember every school you visit.

  20. Hi Stuart. I’ve been reading your FunJungle books and I love them! But after I finished, I got sad because there were no more books to read. Can you please tell me when the next FunJungle book will be published? Thank you.

  21. FunJungly –

    If you look in the right hand column of every page of this website, you will find an Upcoming Releases box that has the answer to your question.

  22. Summer –

    My books are always available ANYWHERE books are sold. (Though I would prefer if you bought them from your local bookstore or bookshop.org.) If you visit my books page, there are always links to purchase them.

  23. *SSAS SPOILER ALERT*
    Mr. Gibbs,
    When Ben and Mike meet El Diablo and he gives them clothes as they come out of the showers, he sees a shirt that says Snakes Alive on it. Is that a reference to the Snakes Alive that FunJungle was against in the FunJungle series? Was that an easter egg?

  24. Book –

    There could be an MBB book. But I am not planning one at this time.

  25. Hi Mr. Gibbs,
    I was wondering if there were any updates on the spy school movie. You are an amazing writer.

  26. Eden –

    Sadly, there are no updates on the SS movie. If I have anything to share, I will post it.

  27. Is Chloe Carter in the first Spy School book a typo or is Chloe Carter and Chloe Appel in the Revolution two different people.

  28. Typoist –

    Those are two different people. That’s why they have two different last names.

  29. Have you written any books that were supposed to be the next book in a big series like Spy School or FunJungle but got rejected by your editor or publisher? If so, could you share the titles of them? This may be classified though…

  30. KK –

    Once a series is going, what happens in the books is really up to me. If I want to do something, then I get to do it.
