Deborah lives in the UK, somewhere south of Glasgow and north of London. She's the proud owner of two brilliant boys and one very elderly dog. When she's not writing, she can be found watching her boys play football in a muddy field, or teaching in her classroom. Occasionally she cooks. Her family wishes she wouldn't. She is the author of The Nightjar and The Rookery.
