What’s A Muse? by Deb Eve

Muse, schmooze! I’ve got credit card debt to pay down and an agent impatient for my next proposal. I don’t have the luxury of waiting for some ephemeral muse to inspire me; I’ve got two adolescents hurtling head-on toward college tuitions in the not-too-distant future. The truth is, I never thought about the concept of a muse. Never imagined that I had some sort of artistic angel sitting on my…

Deb Eve’s Best & Worst Travel Recommendations

As anyone who’s been following The Ball this year – or who has read FIRST COMES LOVE, THEN COMES MALARIA – knows, it might seem as if I have traveled a lot. But the other day, I met up with a dear friend who racks up frequent flier miles like the rest of us collect dryer lint. Listening to her most recent jaunts between Atlanta, Zambia, China and Laos, (she’s…

Today I Is A Author, by Deb Eve

When someone first suggested we blog about graduation, I just assumed it was in keeping with all of those graduating from high schools and colleges around us. But duh …. only now do I realize that our reigning year as Debutantes will soon come to a close, and with one last regal wave of our gloved hands we’ll be graduate Debs and off to live the charmed lives of successful…

Motherhood: The Big Boob, by Deb Eve

One of my favorite photos from my time in Uganda is the one I can almost never show because apparently, it’s not wise for us author types to bare our breasts in public … or on the internet … or wherever. That seems to be a privilege reserved for Miss America contestants or Janet Jackson and the rest of us best keep our girls holstered. But anyway, this picture is…

The Strangest Encounter Yet, by Deb Eve

I know that no will be surprised to hear about my numerous wildlife encounters. It’s always given me great fodder for the party game, “Two Truths and a Lie” since people don’t usually guess that yes, I’ve had my lunch stolen by a monkey (this is NOT as cute as it sounds when you’re tromping through the Amazon jungle basin and the nearest place to grab a bite to eat…

Food Glorious (LOCAL) Food, by Deb Eve

Does anyone else think that Americans don’t know how to eat anymore? It certainly seems that way from the glut of books, food gurus, and diet programs that exist to tell us how to eat. Do we really need to be told what to eat, what not to eat, when to stop eating, whether it’s better to eat organic or things that were grown with toxic chemicals, how to tell…

Bad Girls, Good Girls, and even Moms love this book, by Deb Eve

Aside from when I was an adolescent, I’ve never been a big reader of young adult literature. Oh and another thing, I’ve never been a fan of thrillers of any sort, ghost stories in particular. Yeah, me and Deb Katie’s book were in trouble from the get-go. And yet, BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE grabbed me from the beginning and wouldn’t let me go. There is something so appealing about Alexis…
