Debbie started writing as a child and always dreamt of becoming a professional; even tried to make that happen for several years in the 1970s (long before the internet). Discouraged by constant rejection, the need for a steady paycheque and the challenges of life in general, that muse was buried, deeper and deeper as time wore on and she became a corporate workaholic. Slowly, with the help of computers and the blogging world (which she has embraced wholeheartedly), the muse has returned. Currently working on a memoir of her time at a Swiss boarding school and another of the dogs she has known during her years as a pet sitter.
“Dogs have always been part of my life; a love passed down from generation to generation. Protracted unemployment in the early 90s required some creativity. Thus, my pet care business was born.”
