To You, My Thanks: 5 people to whom FROM UNSEEN FIRE owes its existence

Monday, September 11, 2017

For this week’s theme, the Debs are sharing the love and discussing five people without whom our books wouldn’t exist. I use “five” a little loosely — but here goes: My family: I mean, this almost seems too easy, but I couldn’t start anywhere else. My parents have supported my dreams of writing for as long as I’ve had them. They knew I’d be good at it before I did. (My…

Deb Dana Has Many Best Friends

Tuesday, August 20, 2013

I went to elementary school in the era of the friendship bracelet and best friend heart necklace. You know the one I’m talking about: the heart-shaped charm imprinted with the words “Best Friend,” split down the middle so that one friend would get one half and one friend would get the other.

Deb Kerry’s best friend is a Viking

Monday, August 19, 2013

My best friend is a Viking. No, not that kind of a Viking. He really isn’t much into sports. And he doesn’t look like Thor or wear a horned helmet or go on raiding missions in his warship. I call him my Viking because he’s definitely of Norse descent and his temperament is somewhat blustery and gruff, on the outside anyway. On the inside? This is a man who has…

Deb Susan’s Kitty Friendship Surprise

When I sat down to write a ninja detective mystery, I knew I had a couple of fairly substantial hurdles to clear. High on the list: unrepentant assassins don’t rank very high on the “winsome protagonist scale.”If I wanted to write a mystery series starring a highly trained killer, I needed to round off some of his edges a bit. Fortunately, there’s an app a writing trick for that. Most…

How Deb Susan Found Her Tribe

On August 2, 2010, literary agent and Query Shark Janet Reid blogged a recommendation for the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers’ Colorado Gold Conference. Although the conference was then only a month away, I decided to see if I could still register. Registration was open.

Deb Elise Blogs on Friendship, Courts Death

Good friends are the ultimate external hard drives: they enhance your memory. I remember a lot, but there’s also way too much that’s slipped through the cracks over the years.  Yet when I’m with the friends who really shared my life at various points, everything comes rushing back like no time passed at all. For 6th grade through high school reminiscing, there’s no one like Temperance.  Our friendship started rocky,…
