Debbie resides in Marietta, Georgia with her husband Ed and their two 15 year old Korat cats, Sadie and Churchill. Brother and sister, they have long ago mastered the art of telling them when and what to do.
She is a lover of nature. The Cottage In The Park is the affectionate name for Debbie and Ed’s home and the land upon which it sits is inspirational in every way. Wildlife abounds! From the birds, to the critters, to the plants and minerals, she is reminded every day of the life and soul in all of creation. Everything in life has a desire to be the best it can be. And everything has a past, present and future full of love, laughter, challenges, and pure beauty.
Debbie was born in Virginia. Due to the nature of her father’s business, they lived in many places throughout the South and the exposure to new spots and people created an interesting collection of lifetime events.
Working with corporations was the basis of Debbie’s business career for over 20 years, which included owning and running a successful consulting firm before leaving the corporate world for other pursuits.
After she dusted off notes made from various animal events she witnessed over the years, in 2009, Cottage In The Park…The Series ® LLC was born. Since then Butch the Blue Jay, The Squirrel Who Almost Stole Halloween and Warbie, have been enjoyed by children and their adults throughout the United States and Canada. All the books in the Series are based on true events in and around the Cottage.
Now she is excited to announce her fourth book, three years in the making, Sweet Pea Aka Hot Shot.
