Crime and Punishment by Deb Kristy

Becoming a bartender in a striped-shirt establishment over fifteen years ago was an accomplishment. It meant hard work, late nights, studying drink recipes until dawn, and surviving the not-so-subtle hostility of fellow bartenders whose friend didn’t get the coveted spot or who didn’t feel I’d deserved it, and waiters who’d wanted the position for themselves. I’d worked hard to get there, though it was a means to an end for…

Things I learned from illegal activity by Deb Eileen

I like to tell myself that I didn’t commit any crimes, that the things I did fell more into the area of “pranks.” Who doesn’t like a good prank after all? Prankster sounds so much better than say- delinquent. Examples of some escapades include: – If you pour baby powder at the base of someone’s closed door, and then blow it under the door with a hair dryer it will…

A Life of Crime by Deb Mia

Hmmm, crimes I’ve committed … I’m afraid those records have been permanently sealed. But never fear — crimes are committed daily in our household, with me as the primary culprit.

Is that a crime?”…

Crimes, Misdemeanors and Stories for Cute Boys by Deb Tish

I did some idiotic, not-quite legal things when I was younger–things I’m not sure I want bobbing about on the Internet forevermore. So I’m going to deflect by telling you about bank robberies I’ve been involved in. As a spectator, not as a robber. The first robbery was during the Montreal Olympics when I was ten. My grandfather was visiting from California and he took me, my 22-month-old brother Michael, and my cousin…

Will the Great Reviews ever end for the Debs?! Let’s hope not! Debutante Tish Cohen’s TOWN HOUSE was reviewed by Kirkus this week, who had this to say: “A constellation of characters whose idiosyncrasies make the family of Little Miss Sunshine look like Ozzie and Harriet.” Folks, if Kirkus likes it, you’re gonna love it! Debs on Lists! Deb Mia King’s Good Things is #38 on the Barnes & Noble General…

My Side of the Bed by Deb Kristy

I can’t do it. Everyone else’s posts have been so eloquent, so persuasive and passionate in their offerings, and I find myself reaching, futilely, for something that hasn’t been said, some book that will prove my devotion to the form, or at least to a specific writer or genre. But I cast back over the books I read in 2006 and cannot remember them properly, only fleeting impressions remain. I…
