A former homeschooling mom, Deb loved raising three multi-ethnic children who joined her family by both birth and adoption (though she often wondered when they were little if she would last until nap time).

You can often find her reading mysteries and eating popcorn on her porch swing in summer or by her fireplace in winter.
