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 and ‘The Island Dog Squad’ series which is suitable for teens and adults. Books for more mature readers include the aliens, afterlife, and soldier series, and Deb’s stand-alone novel about netball players.
The first book in the latest series ‘Unlikely Soldiers’ is set in nineteen seventies Britain. The second covers the early eighties and includes the Falklands War, service in Northern Ireland and (the former) West Germany. ‘Friends and Revenge’ is the third in the series, and takes a sinister turn of events. Book four is currently a work in progress.
‘Court Out (A Netball Girls’ Drama)’ is Deb’s stand-alone novel. Using netball as an escape from her miserable home life, 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 team-mates?
‘Beyond Possession’, book four in the Afterlife series was published in February 2018. It’s 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 Deb and Allan adopted last March. 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, spending time with Allan and Sandy, and avoiding housework.
