After years in publishing 2020 brought changes to how Debbie ministered to women. She began speaking at online writers conferences, zoom seminars and online teaching forums. This led her to discover one of her greatest joys is encouraging writers and authors to fulfill their calling and see their dreams of writing realized. After spending a year as the She Writes for Him Tribe Manager–shepherding the online membership group through Redemption Press, she has begun an entirely new adventure in 2022 as a literary agent with Books and Such Literary Management Team. She can think of no greater privilege.
She and her husband Ray have a passion for marriages, re-marriages, single parents and blended families. They have been married 31 years and have raised a blended family of four children, who have blessed them with TEN grandchildren in eight years! Family is everything to her and Grammy is her most loved and treasured name. After a life time in California, she now lives in Arizona with her husband and two crazy but very loved little dogs.
Above all else, Debbie loves to rest in the fact that she is His…Being His is the core of her existence and the joy of her heart and life. As His, she knows all things have purpose and that her life is part of a bigger story.
