The Deadliest Kernel by Deb Kristy

When I was a child, my brother and I spent our summers in Tennessee, splitting our time between our mother’s mother and her husband, and our father’s parents. They were vastly different families, in food, dress, religion, expectations of behavior, punishment, and entertainment. (Contrast those summers with our usual life of freedom in Florida the rest of the year and it’s no wonder I developed a fertile imagination; hell, I’m…

I Would Like to Thank the Academy… by Deb Eileen

I love the movies, all kinds of movies. From foreign films where you leave feeling slightly bewildered, to comedies, to action films where it is required by law to have on the screen (at any given time) something blowing up or a woman who has breasts that should be declared a national landmark. Bonus points to action films where there are busty women in the scene where stuff is blowing…

The Ultimate Home Theater by Deb Mia

Now, try not to be jealous, but here it is. I have a home theater. I know, I know. My book hasn’t even hit the shelves yet and already I’m acting very Hollywood, home theater and all. What can I say? State-of-the-art sound system, huge flat screen, plush velvet sofas and a fully-stocked mini bar and kitchenette. Every movie you could possibly ever want, right at your fingertips. (cough) Okay,…

Gesundheit by Deb Tish

Here’s what I hate about going to the movies. I’m always seated directly in front of the cougher. When I’m not seated directly in front of the cougher, I’m seated in front of the sneezer. And it does absolutely no good to listen for sounds of sniffing, throat clearing or Thera-Flu ingestion while I’m looking for a seat. A true theater-cougher will wait to reveal himself until after the curtain has…

Salty and Sweet by Deb Anna

There’s simply no way I can write the word “popcorn” and not delve into my popcorn-and-Milk Duds combo obsession. I don’t know when it started. I just know that today, as soon as someone says, “Hey, are you interested in seeing…” I’m already imagining scooping a handful of butter-drenched corn and Milk Dud into my mouth. Sometimes, when I’m not feeling remotely inspired by what’s out there, the thought is…

Friends and Fodder by Deb Eileen

It is well known that many writers base their protagonist on themselves. There is only one problem with that- I’m boring. My parents gave me a frightfully normal and healthy upbringing.  Although I am sure they had my best interests at heart, this deprived me of material for my creative muse. Sure there were a few times when my dad’s sense of humor would leave me certain I would die…

The Roommate That Launched 100,000 Words by Deb Mia

Deidre McIntosh, the 40-something cooking-and-lifestyle maven of my debut novel, GOOD THINGS, is my second protagonist. Third, if you want to nit pick, since my first unpublished novel, TERRACOTTA WOMEN, flipped between the POV of two sisters, Anna and Amelia Chi (Deb Anna, how’s that for a small world?!). We won’t get into the whoosie-whatsit of that book, but suffice it to say that I exorcised a few demons with…
