ABOUT DEBRA SCHMIDT
I live in San Diego with my husband, four sons (the oldest is in the Navy) and three dogs.My favorite things to do in San Diego are hiking at Torrey Pines, walking my dogs in Penasquitos Preserve, snorkeling, scuba diving, and yoga. Cooking is one of my passions. I enjoy learning how to prepare foods from around the world.
My write-for-hire experiences have introduced me to amazing teachers, writers, and health care providers. Reading has enriched my life and I would like to give this precious give to children. As Frederick Douglass said, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” As an educator and a writer, this is my mantra.
