Deborah was born in Cullman, Alabama, where a love of reading was nourished. While attending Cullman High School, she was on the high school newspaper staff. Upon graduating, she moved to Montgomery to work for the state government. After twenty-seven years, Deborah retired from state government.
Deborah has been an avid reader since a very young age. She began reading romances while a teenager and fell in love with the dark heroes, happily-ever-after, and being transported to another time and place. After writing poetry for many years, in 1995 she decided to try writing a romance novel.
After three years and many rejections, on July 8, 1998, she received "the call" and became a published author. Deborah made her first sale to Kensington's new line, Precious Gem Historical. Her novel, BOLD AND BONNY, is set in Regency Scotland and was released in April of 1999.
Deborah's second novel, A GIFT OF LOVE, was released November 1999. Also a Kensington Precious Gem Historical, it is set in Regency England. A couple come together during the Twelve Days of Christmas and discover the truest gift — love.
Deborah's third Precious Gem Historical, THE ART OF LOVE, released May 2000. Mattie Somerton must retrieve a forged painting from a museum to save her father from prison. She falls in love with the Renaissance art expert who can be her solution or her doom.
"There is something magical about sharing characters from your own imagination. I hope people laugh, enjoy my stories, and find romance in their own lives."
While waiting to hear yea or nay on other manuscripts and proposals, Deborah continues to write. Deborah lives in central Alabama with David, her husband of fifteen years, and enjoys writing full-time. She possesses a fondness for chocolate, cats, reading, collecting cookie jars, and counted cross-stitch.
