From the author of Rakuten-Kobo’s Emerging Writer short-listed debut Romance, My Dear One, a gripping sequel that sweeps us back in time and across an ocean in a desperate race for answers that unearths dangerous truths, and inspires heart-breaking sacrifice, all in the name of love…

1914… Dianna and Jake Douglas overcame individual and mutual hardship to build a life, and love, together. But when tragedy strikes, and their young son vanishes, they’ll risk everything—including their lives—to find him…

From the wind-swept Texas panhandle to the war-torn European continent, Jake and Dianna set out separately on the same mission: to find answers, so they can make their family—and their hearts—whole again…

Despite the sacrifices they make, and physical and emotional trials each endures, Dianna and Jake are unprepared for the battle of wills that erupts between them threatening to destroy all that they hold dear. Can they find the courage to heal within themselves, and mend what divides them—or will they give up everything they’ve built together, and call their own?

My Own is the sequel to My Dear One, Deborah Small’s five-star debut novel.

Bios for re-use:

55-word bio:

Canadian author Deborah Small decided young she wanted to be a novelist. A few decades, four children, an abandoned plan for a career in law-enforcement, and a Rakuten-Kobo short-listed debut Romance later, she’s living that dream. Member of the Romance Writers of America, she lives with her husband and family in the Pacific Northwest.

95-word bio:

Deborah Small grew up on a hobby farm where her passion for reading, and all things furred and feathered was indulged. When she wasn’t on horseback or tending her critter menagerie, she was immersed in the fictional worlds of her favourite authors. Deborah abandoned plans for a career in law enforcement to stay home and raise her four children and write novels. Her 2018 debut Romance, My Dear One, is short-listed for Rakuten’s Kobo Emerging Writer award in 2019. Deborah lives with her husband and family and two terribly spoiled cats in the Pacific Northwest.

125-word bio:

Canadian author Deborah Small was raised on a hobby farm where her passion for horses, books, and furred and feathered creatures of all shapes and sizes, was indulged. After graduation, Deborah abandoned plans for a career in law enforcement to stay home and raise her four children and write novels like the ones she loves to read: emotional journeys that test the heart. Her 2018 debut Romance, My Dear One, is short-listed for Rakuten Kobo’s Emerging Writer award.

Deborah began her writing career with non-fiction parenting articles published in Canadian Living magazine, and the Vancouver Province. A proud Indie author, and long-term member of the Romance Writers of America, she lives with her husband and family, and two delightfully spoiled cats, in the Pacific Northwest.

250-word bio:

Nancy Drew, The Black Stallion, and James Herriot’s veterinarian adventures had Deborah Small, at different times in her life, contemplating becoming a Private Eye, Horse Trainer, and Veterinarian. Ultimately, she decided to follow her heart, and in her favourite authors’ footsteps, and write emotional stories that reflect her optimistic idealist outlook: a silver-lining in every black cloud.

As a child, she loved to visit her aunt and uncle, and grandparents, on the cattle ranch her grandparents carved from British Columbia’s Cariboo-Chilcotin. The rugged experience imbued her with a deep love of horses and animals, and deeper respect for early settlers, especially her female forebears. 

Deborah worked in construction, as a customer service representative in a high-volume call center, studied Criminal Justice, married twice, divorced once, and began her writing career with non-fiction parenting articles published in Canadian Living magazine and the Vancouver Province when the youngest of her four children was a newborn, before finally tackling her childhood dream of novel writing. Her 2018 debut Romance, My Dear One, is short-listed for Rakuten Kobo’s Emerging Writer award. Its sequel, My Own, published the same year, with the third book in the series, My One True Love, releasing September 2019.

A proud Indie author, wife, mother, and grandmother, Deborah enjoys spoiling her cats, and travelling with her husband in their RV she’s affectionately labeled her mobile office. Member of the Romance Writer’s of America, she’s currently at work on a new romance series, the first of which debuts late in 2019.


Forthcoming Release September 17, 2019

1915

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…
