Thanks for having me, I shall try to recall some of my own dancing skills for my visit so I don’t embarrass anyone. When the 2009 Debs asked if I’d like to do a guest blog they said I should tell you all about my new book,…

Beyond The Ball

20 Hottest Authors by Deb Gail

I’ve been thinking about this topic a lot since it was first proposed and thinking how much I like it but that makes me wonder if that means I’m superficial since I immediately interpreted “hot” as meaning sexy or attractive or does that mean that I’m just caught up in this whole list thing that seems to be a trend or that I’m over-thinking the whole thing or… … okay,…

Dirt on the Debs by Deb Danielle Younge-Ullman
