The Lie That Tells the Truth: Q&A with Karen Karbo by Deb Danielle

I’m honored this week to host journalist and author, Karen Karbo, for a Q&A.

Deb Lisa’s Secret Life

I have a secret life. I feed my kids organic milk, whole wheat linguini, and sloppy joes made from soy. But I have a secret stash of Twinkies. I come by it naturally. When I was growing up, my mother force-fed my brother and me carab chip cookies (sort of like chocolate, but more like cardboard), granola, and ground turkey burgers (which do not, despite my mother’s protests, taste exactly…

However, the list of normal everyday things I’ve never mastered is long. It includes, but is not limited to: Cartwheels: This knowledge gap showed up young. I would run…


A Deb Moment with Guest Author John Grisham

John has wisely parlayed his Italian experience into books set in Italia: first, his bestselling novel, The Broker, and now–in a departure from the legal thrillers with which we’ve come to associate the…
