At the age of nine, Debra began writing stories for the characters who lived in her too-vivid imagination. By 18 she had turned wife, mother, and career woman, leaving her writing behind. But those imaginary characters just wouldn’t go away.
For the next 18 months she did everything from managing a Captain D’s seafood restaurant to holding an executive secretarial position at NASA, while the characters and their stories continued to traipse around inside her head. Eventually they just had to come out and Debra began the journey that would take her to where her heart had been all along — writing romance.
Debra was born in Alabama, but now lives in Tennessee. Her journey, however, wasn’t a simple trek northward to the Volunteer state. First, Debra, her husband, and oldest daughter did a little traipsing of their own. From Texas to Berlin, Germany, Debra followed her husband’s military assignments. Finally landing in Tennessee, they had their second daughter and settled for the rest of their lives in a small community they fell in love with on sight.
Debra loves writing romantic suspense and is happy to announce her upcoming Colby Agency Series from Harlequin Intrigue. Look for the first Colby case in September, Safe by His Side. Then, don’ t miss the next case in January 2001, The Bodyguard’s Baby. Debra is very excited about this ongoing series, and hopes her readers will love the stories as much as she loved writing them.
