Debbie has recently completed a middle grade manuscript, CALL OF THE CROW, about an adventurous young boy who follows a series of mysterious clues about the dark magic that has overtaken the small town’s forest. He finds a comical and mischievous boggart who challenges his thoughts on fear and friendship as they rush to stop a destructive monster.
Debbie's hobbies include reading, nature photography, hiking, cooking, home improvement projects and travel. She is a Certified Dog Trainer in positive reinforcement techniques (i.e., "Good dog, here's a treat").
Debbie volunteers for the United Partnership for Animal Welfare (UPAW), and Crossroad Campus (crossroadscampus.org) which brings together foster dogs and at-risk teens. She also serves on the Executive Council of Elephant Aid International (EAI) founded by SCBWI member Carol Buckley (www.elephantaid.org).
Debbie lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and dogs.
