After majoring in English Literature with a concentration in Medieval and Folklore studies, Debra promptly sold out to the corporate world, occasionally dabbling in writing marketing copy and op/ed articles for a local city paper. By day, she designs compensation programs, after dark she stuffs her nose into obscure mythology, and feverishly writes her novels. A DEMON BOUND is her debut novel.
Debra lives on a farm in Maryland with Sweetie, three sons, and a Noah’s ark of four legged family members. Unlike her protagonist, she drives an old PT Cruiser, couldn’t carry a tune if you duct taped it to her back, and enjoys an occasional cosmopolitan (heavy on the vodka). On a good day, she jogs and horseback rides, hopefully managing to keep the horse between herself and the ground. Her only known super power is ‘Identify Roadkill’.

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
So Much Fun! This is a book I have been wanting to read for some time, so when the author put up a R2R I jumped at the chance! I was not disappointed.
The main character was a joy to read. She was mischievous and clever, not the overbearing strong willed heroine stereotype. The supporting characters were also well developed and not just plot devises used to push the story along, or have that ever present single piece of information needed for the resolution of the plot. The mythology of this book and the characters were also well written and maintained throughout the entire story.
The ending of the story was a big build up but then just kind of fizzled. There was plenty of action but then to just leave the story at that really left me with a ton of questions. I assume that since this is at least a 5 book series I will have to be patient to get those answers.
The copy I received did have some editing issues but not sure if this is universal to all copies. Also some e-features were also not available in my copy.
