Author Name: Debbie Macomber

Debbie Macomber was born on October 22, 1948 in Yakima, Washington, U.S.A.. Debbie is dyslexic, and when she first decided to write a novel she had only a High School Degree and also was the very young mother of four active children. People called her a hopeless dreamer, no one believed she had what it took to write a book--except Debbie. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old typewriter, and every night when the children were asleep, she would sit down to write. She wrote--for years. But each time she completed a story and mailed it off to a publisher, the manuscript was returned, stamped 'rejected.' As tough as it was to keep her spirits alive, Debbie never gave up. Five long years and thousands of pages later, she received a letter in the afternoon mail. The letter was from Silhouette Books--and they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a Silhouette Inspiration in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers Weekly.

Debbie Macomber overcame the obstacles in her own life to become one of the world's most popular writers. Today, Debbie is the internationally acclaimed author of more than 150 novels. Popular around the globe, she receives approximately three thousand letters from readers every month. And she responds personally to each one. Several of Debbie's novels have achieved the number-one spot on Waldenbooks bestseller lists and earned prestigious berths on the USA Today bestseller list. A three-time winner of the impressive B. Dalton Award, she is also the recipient of Romantic Times' Magazine's distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award. And, most recently, she made the New York Times bestseller list with her novel, Promise, Texas--truly an accomplishment!

Through both words and deeds, Debbie Macomber inspires women from all walks of life to realise their dreams. She encourages women to achieve the goals that burn in their hearts as fiercely as the desire to become a bestselling novelist did in her own years ago. Now, in lectures around the country, Debbie encourages women to 'exercise the success muscle.' She also offers advice on how to achieve success in seeking or changing a career, building family relationships, forming healthy relationships and more. Like her heartwarming novels, Debbie's inspirational speeches are always filled with laughter and love. She cares deeply about the women she touches with her writing, and she continues to mentor people around the country. She also volunteers her considerable talents to help raise much-needed funds for battered-women's shelters, literacy and medical research. Is it any wonder that Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America appointed Debbie an ambassador for the national office in 1997? In support of the organisation's outreach to young people, Debbie travelled throughout the US to inspire and encourage them to pursue--and realise--their own dreams.

Debbie lives with her husband Wayne in Port Orchard, Washington. Their children are grown and she is now a proud grandmother.
