1. While in high school I was a hospital volunteer because I thought I wanted to be a nurse. Why I would even consider this occupation remains a mystery to me even now because I’m squeamish at the sight of blood. In fact, when our oldest son, Ted, got hit in the face with a baseball bat, I fainted. I won’t even tell you my reaction when Ted went through a plate glass window and sliced open his arm.

 

2. I like to work Sudoku puzzles. I try to work a puzzle every day, and after five years I still haven’t mastered the HARD section. I don’t even attempt the CHALLENGER ones. My husband, Wayne, can finish off a puzzle in a few minutes and my granddaughter, who is twelve, solved the puzzle the Internet declared as the most difficult one ever created. Meanwhile, I struggle with the medium section. 

 

3. Wayne and I live on five acres, and I built a pirate fort for my grandchildren on our property. The fort has a large deck around the outside that holds a cannon and several barrels with nets. There is a cross and skull bones on the door, a pirates’ flag and black shutters. What I enjoy most is seeing their imaginations run wild, inventing stories while playing with their cousins.

Thanks Jeremy, we at my in person book club at my library last night were just discussing Debbie and her part in You've Got To Read This Book.

She has had some very serious personal tragedies in her life lately, loosing her son to suicide a big one and she still goes out and entertains her fans with her wonderful novels.

Thanks for showcasing one of my favorites, author and people too.
