BIOGRAPHY

Following a career of over thirty years in the British Army, Deb and her husband moved to Cyprus to become weather refugees.

She's written children's books about 'Jason the Penguin' and Barry the reindeer (Reindeer Dreams) and 'The Island Dog Squad' series which is suitable for teens and adults. Books for more mature readers include the afterlife, and soldier series, and Deb's stand-alone novel about netball players.

The next book is a joint project, on Amazon autumn 2019. 'Zak, My Boy Wonder' is written from a mother's point of view. It's the true story of her son's abandonment by the authorities, the fight for his survival against all odds, and acceptance in a society obsessed by perfection.

The first book in the 'Unlikely Soldiers' series is set in nineteen seventies Britain. The second covers the early eighties. 'Friends and Revenge' is the third in the series, and takes a sinister turn of events. Book four is currently a work in progress.

In 'Court Out (A Netball Girls' Drama)' Marsha Lawson is desperate to keep the past buried and to forge a brighter future. But she's not the only one with secrets. When two players want revenge, a Tsunami of emotions is released at a tournament leaving destruction in its wake. As the wave starts spreading throughout the team, can Marsha and the others escape its deadly grasp, or will their emotional baggage pull them under, with devastating consequences for their families and teammates?

'Beyond Possession', book four in the Afterlife series is a fast-paced supernatural thriller involving child possessions, reincarnations and telepathic twins, with angels trying to keep the Devil and his evils at bay.

'The Island Dog Squad' is a series of novellas inspired by the rescue dog adopted by Deb and Allan. The real Sandy is a sensitive soul, not quite like her fictional namesake, and the other characters are based on Sandy's real-life mates.

Deb spends her time writing, hanging out with Allan and Sandy, and avoiding housework.

    • I served in the British Army for almost thirty-five years. Some of the scenes in my 'Unlikely Soldiers' series are based on real events during my service, the others are pure fiction. I let my readers guess which is which!
