Author of more than 40 novels, Deborah lives in Oklahoma. She has been a full-time writer since she graduated from the University of Tulsa.

Lover of the west and the people who tried to tame it, Deborah likes to write about strong, independent women and the men who are their equals. She grew up on a diet of TV westerns which have served her well. Living in Oklahoma has also been a godsend. Since she appreciates men with devilish twinkles in their eyes, she likes to mix laughter in with the love scenes in her books.
Also widely published in non-fiction, she and writes and edits for a magazine focused on small businesses. Deborah taught fiction writing for more than 10 years at a community college. She has been a guest speaker at numerous writers’ conferences, including Romance Writers of America (RWA), Writers, Inc., and the Oklahoma Writers Federation, Inc.

She is currently working on her next historical romance set in the wild, wonderful west.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
A)I’ve had this story idea in my head for about 10 years. When I read “Fifty Shades of Grey” it inspired me to put my story on paper. Once I did, I realized it was a series and not just one novel. “Through His Touch” is the second novel in my Mind’s Eye series.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
A) It took me almost four months.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
A) The freedom and my boss. She is a wonderful, caring, totally talented individual who doesn’t give a rip when I show up for work or when I take lunch or how long I take for lunch. I love her!
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
A) Worrying about if anyone will buy and/or like my book, will enough people read my book, will I be able to write what I enjoy writing, etc.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
A)E.L. James, the author. I would like to know what it’s like to have people lined up to buy your book, have your book made into a film, have people talking about your book, spending all that money you made on your book!
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
A jar of pickled okra I keep forgetting is in there. It’s been in there two or three years!
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
I’m writing #3 in the Mind’s Eye series now. Then I’m going to write a historical romance set in the west at the end of the Civil War.
