Deborah is passionate about encouraging children to read. An avid reader from childhood herself she always loved poetry and singing. Her youngest son has Aspergers so she is familiar with the problems that children face when reading.Her light bulb moment to write a book came at 30000ft flying over the Pacific to New Zealand. Now she has the writing bug. She likes to write fun stories that children and parents can read and enjoy together.
