Deborah Ann Davis

Biography

DEBORAH ANN DAVIS writes Quirky New/Young Adult Fiction with a Twist. She has been writing since she was assigned to keep a Journal in her 5th grade English class. She began to look around for writing inspiration. Lo and behold, she found her world was full of funny stories just waiting to be told. As she grew older, occasionally she could manipulate one into some school assignment, but it never occurred to her to pursue writing, not even when she discovered her flare for telling stories at college parties.

After a string of college majors, she realized she could have a captive audience EVERY DAY in the public school system. As it turns out, teenagers love to laugh, and what could be more entertaining than Biology, Earth Science, and Environmental Science? Then there is the added bonus that once kids know you like to laugh, they want to make you laugh.

Go figure.

In addition to Writing, she is also an Educational Speaker and a Certified Personal Trainer. She taught for 25+ years, although somewhere in the middle of all that educating, she stepped out of teaching to do the Mommy Thing, and run the office for their family construction company.

Even though they had followed separate paths, Deborah reunited with, and married her childhood sweetheart, twelve years after their first kiss. Together they coached their daughter s AAU Basketball Team, which swept States two years in a row. (Yay!) Then, for several years their daughter and their money went to college.

They currently reside on a lovely lake in Connecticut. When she isn't writing novels for her Love of Fairs series, she enjoys dabbling with living a sustainable life, dancing, playing outside, and laughing really hard every day. She promotes increasing the amount of movement throughout your day via Wiggle Writer posts on her blog, Merry Meddling. Follow her @DeborahAnnDavis. Drop her a line at: aac@DeborahAnnDavis.com

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Fairly Certain is the product of my first jaunt to a Renaissance Faire in Connecticut. It wasn't the bawdy barmaids, nor the noble knights who turned my head. I was inspired by the craftsmen who lived and breathed history. The sword-makers. The yarn spinners. The boot makers. The blacksmith. The potter. All were masters of their crafts, and I fell in love with them. They were perfect fodder for my quirky sense of humor.
When did you first start writing?
I was knocked over by Lyme Disease several years ago and turned to writing out of sheer boredom. As I got better, my writing got better. Two years ago I quit my day job to write full time, and I'm healthy as a horse.
