Debi Faulkner

Biography

A native Detroiter by birth, I left the Motor City in 2001 for the Netherlands with my husband (a chiropractor) and my small children. In December of 2003, we moved again, this time to Ireland. While there, I took part in a mentorship program with the Irish author, Lia Mills, who helped me in making the transition from poetry to prose and from writing verses in poems to writing chapters in novels.

In August 2006, we relocated yet again to the Netherlands. Now, if only I was fluent in Dutch . . .

The upside of this nomadic lifestyle is that I have much more time than I would have had in the states to spend with my writing.

My non-fiction piece, Binder Clips, won first place at the 2002 Feed the Writers Weekend in Amsterdam, and my chapter book, Kissy Frog, won an Honorable Mention in the 2006 W.I.N. Competition. I have also had numerous poems published online and in print literary journals, and several have won awards, including a chapbook shortlisted for the 2005 Listowel Writer's Week Poetry Competition. I am a member of SCBWI and IrishPen, and I have a BA in English/Creative Writing.

Summoning is my first published novel.

Summoning is based on a “true” Irish witch story in which an evil vicar sells not only his soul but also that of his young servant girl, Meredith, to the devil. After learning the dark craft herself, Meredith finds herself trapped in the demon's shadow when she is accused of witchcraft. It is up to her to find the light and save herself – and those she loves – from the deal.
