About Debra

I come from a long line of storytellers. An old college professor of mine once called my grandmother's handwritten memoirs of life on the Dakota prairie ‘Giants of the Earth in ten pages.’ My great-great uncle was a published author whose tale of waking up in a rattlesnake den combined elements of Pecos Bill and Washington Irving.

I graduated from college expecting to teach but wound up with a career in journalism instead. Although non-fiction helped me hone my craft, fiction remained my first love, and with the support of my husband and family I sold my first book to Harlequin Superromance in 1999.

I love to write deeply emotional, heart-touching stories that bring my readers both smiles and tears. My Spotlight on Sentinel Pass mini-series is set in the Black Hills of South Dakota, my home state.
