Being raised in a household where suits of armour were made in the cellar and numerous foster children raised in the house, fact was always stranger than fiction for Deborah and therefore writing down some of the escapades soon developed into writing fiction.
Having achieved a first class degree in Literature and a diploma in Creative Writing with the Open University Deborah started writing on a more regular basis. She was shortlisted in the Town and Village short story competition in 2008 and was Highly Commended in the Writing Can be Murder category for her first novel Treading Water at Winchester Writer’s conference 2009. Regeneration another short story received the Hampshire Highly Commended title from the Town and Village publication in which it was published Jan 2010.
Currently Deborah is completing her first novel whilst researching two others and writing short stories, in between raising her family and running the administration for her partner’s irrigation business.
