SHADOWED IN THE SPRINGS, I have read a lot of mystery over the years and S A Slack is right up there in style, story-line, and yes, keeping you guessing. -- An Intrigued Critic
“VYOLET, WITH A “Y”, a delightful fantasy, quickly grabs the readers’ attention and draws them into the exciting realm of Asterdon...Slack has the wonderful ability to transport a reader from the comfort of their recliner to a foreign environment using only words. Debra E., published author



It’s that time of year again for the NaNoWriMo contest. Every November 1st writers, new and experienced, the world over are invited to join in and get their novels started. It is the beginning of a great race to see how many can reach at least 50,000 words before the end of the month. And a race it is! I joined in last year and had such a good time, I decided to do it again this November. I’m going strong this year, and once again pumped by it all.

I will be on travel to Sierra Vista, Arizona for this week for some book researching, but will have my laptop with me, of course, and will continue the event each opportunity I get.

Happy writing!

Plans have changed…


There has been a change in plans concerning which novel will be book two in my Stormy Winters Mystery series. It was to be set in Oahu, but by request I have put that one aside for book three. Book two in the series will now take place in Colorado Springs and I’m busily writing that one. It will be ready next year for publication. It has a lot of twists and turns in it and finds Stormy and Lance involved in things that are better left alone!

Making its way around!


I have been both pleased and excited to see how quickly my new novel has been making its way around the internet and being carried by book stores. Thanks to all of you who have purchased my books so far. I hope you are enjoying it.

My next book is coming along well and has been quite fun to write. I loved our trip to Oahu that my husband and I took this past May, and from what we saw, it just had to be the place for Stormy Winter’s next adventure!

Have a great week!

It’s Out!


I am excited to anounce that my new book, The Austin Fires, A Stormy Winters Mystery, is out in print now. I received the first copy by UPS today, with several more to follow next week. I think Author House did a wonderful job with it, and they really have been very helpful and a pleasure to work with through out the whole process. The Austin Fires seems to already be making its way, rather quickly, around to the internet’s book sites, besides Amazon.com. Check it out and let me know what you think!
