Inventing stories was about survival. At a young age, Deborah's rampant imagination kept her up, lending great detail to all the terrible things lurking in the night. In desperation one night, her mother suggested she invent her own stories to distract her brain. Now addicted, she thrives by exploring new worlds where wounds stay, people are neither evil nor good, and magic comes with a cost. In her other life, she is a veterinarian, so you know the animal depictions are accurate! She lives in Sooke, British Columbia, Canada with her husband of 10+ years, their son, and their three demanding felines.
