Perth, Western Australia

Debra is an Aussie author of contemporary romance with a penchant for swoony heroes who listen to their women’s words as well as their hearts.

She loves to read romance books and can often be found with her nose stuck in her iPad, swooning over her latest book boyfriend.

She writes part-time from her Perth home, which she shares with her husband and their two sons, whose antics often make her roll her eyes and laugh in equal measure.

She loves to eat cheese and chocolate (not together), and cheese and chocolate loves her thighs so much, they never want to leave!

Writing a novel had never been on her radar. One morning, she was enjoying a coffee by the river and a story sprouted, seemingly from nowhere. At the age of 51, she pulled up the Pages app on her phone and began to type—Loving Summer was born.
