Meet Debbie

Writing has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. My mom still has my first poem, written in first grade, in which I describe her legs as a hair brush. I must have been mad at her that day! I have continued to write sporadically through the years. Turning fifty last year has inspired me to pursue writing and publication as a more serious endeavor.

I had devotions published in the IBSA Good News Daily Devotion Guide, have written several guest blog posts and recently had a poem featured in Every Day Poems, a daily E-zine of T. S. Poetry Press.

I am an avid reader and usually have 3-4 books, from theology to poetry or a fiction classic to those on the craft of writing, piled on my nightstand at once. I also write book reviews and you can join me at Goodreads.

My husband and I served as missionaries in South Africa for three years, but currently have made Southern Illinois our home. You can read about our missionary journey in my book: For the Love of Christ and a Mozambican Village. I would love to connect with you. You can follow me on Facebook or Instagram
