Deborah Jay writes fast-paced fantasy adventures featuring quirky characters and multi-layered plots. Just what she likes to read. Living mostly on the UK south coast, she has already invested in her ultimate retirement plan - a farmhouse in the majestic mystery-filled Scottish Highlands where she retreats to write when she can find time. Her taste for the good things in life is kept in check by the expense of keeping too many dressage horses, and her complete inablility to cook. She also has non-fiction titles published under her professional name of Debby Lush.
