writing

Debby excels at creative and informative nonfiction–anything soulful, all things momentous. More specifically:

  • empowerment
  • memoirs
  • human interest
  • wellness
  • public awareness
  • company bios (the who behind the what)

She is most passionate about assignments/projects regarding women’s issues, family matters, preventive and holistic health, and social change.

Her inquisitive nature and empathic sense get to the heart of questions like: Who is this person/company? What is it about them that is so unique? Why should anyone care about this story? (Click here for a sample).

She also loves to write informative pieces that increase pubic awareness of important issues, as she believes education equals power. Candy Lightner, founder of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), used her voice back in the ’80s to create positive change regarding driving under the influence. Debby can easily sink her teeth into these types of assignments.

As she likes to say, “I find the heartbeat, then I put words to it.”
