Writers are crazy and I’m no exception. I mean, really… where do you think all these stories come from? It only takes something quirky and a “what if” thought comes barreling through my brain. I know, cuz I've had this affliction all my life.
I was raised in a very small town in western Pennsylvania with a freedom kids don’t know anymore. In my town, everyone knew everyone AND everything about them. Doors were never locked and the grapevine was better than the town newspaper. Even though I now live in a massive city in Southern California, I’ll always be a small town girl. All my stories reflect that longing to return to a simpler, more personal, way of life.
I’m a big believer in love. Though I’m divorced and raised my two wonderful children on my own, I believe there’s somebody fantastic out there who’s just as crazy as I am. I just haven’t met him yet! I’m the eternal optimist. Hopes and dreams are a part of my stories and my life. That’s not to say we don’t have difficult times, but I believe in rainbows. We should never stop trying and I have faith that happily ever after is there for all of us!
Professionally, I've been a bit schizophrenic. By education, I’m a Speech Pathologist (therapist) and have never once done it. However, I have been a teacher, a buyer for a larger department store chain, a banker, a mortgage broker, an executive assistant to Bishops, resettled refugees from around the world and direct a food pantry. But the one thing that’s been consistent is writing. I love working with people and helping them. I also love the solitude of writing. See? CRAZY!
Home is where my story starts. There is nothing more important than my family and friends. That’s why I write love stories… all kinds of love. I look at my life and appreciate how blessed I’ve been with amazing relationships. That’s another thing you’ll find in my stories - family and friends you can count on when the going gets tough.
After all, LOVE is what makes the world go ‘round.

Room At The Inn
by Debbie Decker
The quaint Royal Inn is where architect Steve Preston had planned to to stay - until Dusty Thomas, the charming but dizzy owner, informs him that she can't find his reservation. Now there's no room at the inn, unless he doesn't mind sharing HER suite. Happy-go-lucky Dusty finds her handsome guest a stuffed shirt until his unexpected kiss convinces her that Steve is ready for anything.
