Debbie received her first library card at the tender age of six and still remembers walking out as if she’d just been handed one of Willy Wonka’s golden tickets. After that, it was rare not to find Debbie enwrapped in a book. It was only a matter of time before the stories that played in her head found their way to the page.
Born in Miami, Debbie grew up in Guatemala and is fluent in English, Spanish and Hebrew. She currently resides with her husband and her two fabulously trilingual and adorable girls in South Florida.
Her debut novel, Colliding Skies, received 1st place in the Society for Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators Florida Rising Kite 2016 Award. When she is not writing, working, or performing some feat of mommy magic, Debbie can be found reading, binge watching Netflix, running, or fangirling Muse.
