has always had a soft spot for fairy tales, the joy of falling in love, and
happily ever after endings. Stories of love and make believe filled her head
for as long as she can remember. However, it was her beloved husband who
encouraged, cajoled and inspired her to take up a pen and write some of them
down. Her journey to published author could fill quite a few pages. However, in
June of 2010, she submitted her debut novel “Spirit of the Rebellion” to her
wonderful, patient, editor at The Wild Rose Press and the rest is history. She
now has five published novels to her credit, with a sixth due out in the coming
she is not busy conjuring her latest novel, Debbie spends time with the members
of her very large family, within the lovely, arid deserts of southern Nevada.
She also pursues her interests in family history, mythology, and all things
ancient and historic.

Welcome, Debbie. Please tell us about
your current release, Shadow of the Witte
Despite a contract on her head, lone Drug Enforcement Agent,
Aliyana Montijo must ferret out a mole and stop the assassination of top DEA
officials, as so ordered by the Colombian drug lord she seeks to take down. The
task is a daunting one, for there is no one she can trust. No one that is,
until she encounters a most unlikely ally.
Former seventeenth century captain of the Dutch West Indies
Company, Wolfaert Dircksen Van Ness, now from a parallel dimension, encounters
the beautiful agent during an unearthly storm in the Bermuda triangle. Drawn to
the Spanish beauty he rescues, he pledges his assistance, despite her
reluctance to accept either his help or his heart.
Wolf must bridge both space and time to claim the woman he loves.

from Shadow of the Witte Wieven:

“Are you going to answer the question, or are you not?” he quipped, ignoring
her comment
“Ooh! Tu’ eres el hombre más exasperante que he tenido la
desgracia de conocer!” she huffed 
as she folded her arms and slammed them hard against her chest.
“Sorry?” His eyes danced with sudden merriment, while his lips
twitched in amusement. “I
didn’t quite catch all that!”
In response to his mirth, she once again clenched her teeth. She
could feel her cheeks flame 
as she jerked a pointed a finger toward his chest. “I said, you
are the most exasperating man I’ve ever 
had the misfortune—”
The moment she drove her finger forward, her words abruptly ended
and so did his mirth.
Aliyana touched the tip of her tongue to her lips as she stared at
what she could see of her finger. She 
slowly withdrew it from inside his chest, gazed at the digit,
repeated her actions once more, and then 
gazed into his sky-blue eyes.
“Aliyana,” Wolf whispered. “Don’t be afraid of me. This isn’t what
you think.”
She struggled to make sense of this new quandary. Her bewildered
gaze shifted to his arms
that still held her fast, traveled their length, and then rose to
his face. Her lovely eyes, filled with 
such delightful indignation a moment ago, now held a trace of
“Who are you?” she asked in a voice just audible to his ears.
“Better yet, what are you?”

What exciting story are you working on

Court of the Hawk is my next release
and is currently in the pre-galley stages. This fantasy romance pairs a modern
day epigraphist with a 13th century Lord who rules an ancient Welsh
kingdom hidden from the world.

When did you first consider yourself a

I have always enjoyed writing. Yet, I don’t think I truly
considered myself a writer until I signed my first contract with The Wild Rose

Do you write full-time? If so, what’s
your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find
time to write?

I do write full time, however my hours are never cut in stone.
Sometimes I am up at 5:00 a.m., typing away. There are also times that I am up
past midnight. When the words are flowing I write them. When they’re not, I do
the other things that need doing.

What would you say is your interesting
writing quirk?

I don’t know if it’s really a quirk, but I do have to have music
playing that matches the scenes I am writing. Most of the music I listen to is
instrumental and generally comes from various movie scores. Oh, and I also have
to have my ice-water and either cinnamon bears or hot tamales readily

As a child, what did you want to be when
you grew up?

Oh, I had quite a list! I wanted to be a teacher, a nurse, and a
rodeo rider, just to name a few. I think that’s why I love writing. I give all
of my heroines a different, interesting career and then I get to live it along
with them while I write their story…

    That was a fun review to read. And I can't wait to read the 2nd Edition to see what has been added to it, but first I need to read "Van Locken's Witch, so I can see how it all comes together when I read the 2nd Edition. I have enjoyed stopping by for the opening of this tour.
