Debbie Terranova is a writer of contemporary and historical fiction and non-fiction with a distinctly Australian flavour. Eras of particular interest are the roaring 20s, the Second World War in Australia, and the vibrant free-wheeling 1970s.
In 2018, she was awarded a Q ANZAC 100 Fellowship from the State Library of Queensland for her project entitled 'Queensland Women and War: a multicultural perspective'.
'Enemies Within These Shores' (2017) is historical fiction, based on the true story of her Italian father-in-law, a cane farmer who was interned in Australia during World War II.
The Brisbane Mysteries, 'Baby Farm' (2014) and 'The Scarlet Key' (2016), feature veteran reporter, Seth VerBeek, and his smart young sidekick, Cate Bradshaw. With countless plot twists and surprises, you'll be guessing until the very end.
'Mowbray Brothers' and 'Mischief' are prize-winning short fiction pieces.
Debbie is a member of the Australian Society of Authors and the Queensland Writers Centre. She has a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Queensland, and is a human resources professional.
