An award-winning author, Deborah’s fascination with character and conflict was the driving force behind her career as a psychotherapist, specializing in work with traumatized, abused, neglected children, and serving as an expert witness in the courts. As an award-winning fine artist, her large oil canvases are in the style of photorealism.
Deborah’s first novel, “The Endling,” includes artists and the art community. Having grown up with the teachings of Native American customs, Deborah’s love for that culture has been lifelong.
She is “home” in the Appalachian Mountains. The Appalachian people, their traditions, values, and way of life, are a constant source of inspiration and creativity.
