Deborah Kinnard started writing at age ten, frustrated because there was no preteen girl with a horse on 'Bonanza'. From there she progressed to short stories and really bad poetry.
In college, she gained two degrees in health care and spent time observing hippies, basketball stars, el-ed majors and other strange species.
While raising two active girls and cherishing a husband, she enjoyed a career that has encompassed Spanish translation, volunteer work at a crisis line, years in assorted ERs that don't resemble the one on TV, and a day job at a big Chicago teaching hospital.
She's a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, serving as Midwest Zone Director, and confesses to being a loud singer at church. In 2002 and 2003, she sold her first and second novels, Powerlineand Oakwood to Treble Heart Books. Angel with a Ray Gun was originally released in 2006, Something Borrowed in the BRIDES AND BOUQUETS 2007 anthology, and My Silent Heart in November 2007, all by ByGrace Publishing. Seasons in the Mist will release in spring 2010 from Sheaf House Publishing.
