Deborah grew up on a hobby farm surrounded by her beloved books, horses, cats, and dogs. Some of her favourite childhood memories revolve around visits to the cattle ranch her grandparents carved from British Columbia’s Cariboo-Chilcotin, where she was treated to hotcakes made on the woodstove, tea-biscuits fresh from the oven, and thrilling trips atop a stack of haybales wobbling dangerously on a horse-drawn sleigh piloted by her uncle, while her father sliced binder-twine and tossed loosed bales out for the bawling cows.
Deborah worked in construction, customer service, and studied Criminal Justice, before launching her writing career with non-fiction articles published in Canadian Living magazine, and the Vancouver Province.

A proud Indie author and Romance Writers of America member, Deborah resides with her family in the Pacific Northwest. Her favourite pastime as an adult is travelling with her husband in their RV that doubles as her mobile office.

Twice widowed… Margaret Sweeney has no intention of marrying again. Her heart simply cannot withstand another loss. Besides, it’s a rare man that knowingly weds a barren woman, and she buried him. To honour his memory, she decides to dedicate herself to Sugar Hill, the tobacco plantation he left her. But when she meets overseer, Joe Banner, and his delightful daughter Maisie, all her plans to refrain from ever loving someone again, go awry…
Once bitten… Joe learned young the danger of romantic love with a woman, and vowed to never make that mistake again. For a decade he’s been true to his word. And then the new owner of Sugar Hill sweeps into his and Maisie’s carefully ordered lives and upends everything, including his resolve to remain aloof…
Three lives forever changed… Painful as it is to lose in love, it’s nothing compared to losing a child. And when Joe’s past and Margaret’s present conspire to threaten Maisie’s future, the couple will do whatever it takes to save her, even if it means giving up every precious last piece of their damaged hearts…
