Originally from Pennsylvania, Deb and her British husband Pete, currently live on a small farm near the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina. They enjoy the simplicity of their rural lifestyle and take pleasure in the daily antics of their horse Colonel, half dozen rowdy barn cats and a large but friendly black snake they’ve affectionately named “Licorice”. The story “A Hot Dog Stand in the Himalayas” began as a diary for their granddaughter. A way for her to remember all of the adventures they had before moving south. Her book embraces the “It is if you believe it is” credo she and Pete live by and have instilled in their kids and grandchild.
