Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Murder follows a charge of sexual abuse, prompting a curious amateur sleuth back into action. Kate Carpenter, the house manager of Calgary's largest theater (House Report, 2004), is settling into shaky cohabitation with her handyman boyfriend Cam when her meddling mother abruptly announces a visit. Mom's minatory attitude toward Kate's amour loses some sting when she arrives with her own affectionate new beau. But a greater threat to Kate's new relationship concerns her theater, which has just been chosen as the site of a prestigious music festival. Suave Stephan Bouchard, Kate's mentor and lover of a decade ago, when she nearly became a professional musician, arrives with his bitchy wife Carole and pianist daughter Nicole, a former prodigy Kate had baby-sat during her affair with Stephan. Now Cam is jealous about Stephan, who's trying to rekindle the old flame. On the eve of her performance in the festival, Nicole triggers a feeding frenzy in the press by claiming that Stephan has sexually abused her since she was a little girl. She's championed by family friend Dr. Joelle Bergere, who may have ulterior motives. Kate is skeptical. The furor surrounding the accusation has barely subsided when Kate discovers Joelle's body swinging on a rope from the second balcony. Intuition and an anonymous diary help her beat the police to a solution. Kate's breezy first-person narrative piques interest in her sophomore entry and smooths over the joints of the awkwardly constructed plot. Agent: Jeanette Lundgren/Book to Screen Management

Deborah Nicholson has always loved the arts. She studied dance for over ten years. She took drama in school, working as playwright, stage manager and director. She studied music for almost 20 years and taught music for ten years. She moved into medical administration but kept up her love of arts by working and volunteering at the Calgary Centre for Performing arts, with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, The Calgary International Children’s Festival, Alberta Theatre Projects and Theatre Calgary. Deborah worked as an usher, bartender, shift supervisor, secretary, receptionist, volunteer coordinator and craft designer for these various organizations.


The culmination of her career at the Centre was as House Manager for Theatre Calgary for several years. Leaving this position, and the longing to still go to the theatre every night, led to the creation of the Kate Carpenter Mystery Series (Severn House). There are currently five novels published in this series, available in eight countries around the world, and widely reviewed. Deborah has also completed a medical mystery/thriller, Mind Games.


To balance her career in the arts, she has continued to work in medical administration with various specialties, such as physiotherapy and rehabilitation, dermatology and cosmetic surgery, general practice and now chronic pain. This interesting field has led to her upcoming series of medical thrillers.


Since being published, Deborah has done several workshops and readings to encourage people who dream of writing to stop dreaming and start writing. She has joined several organizations, very interested in literacy and mentorship.


She has made numerous appearances on The Breakfast Show, Shaw Television and was a featured performed in “The Letters”. Deborah is a member of Mystery Writers Ink, The Alexandra Writers Society, Crime Writers of Canada, The Alberta Writers Guild, and Romance Writers of America. Deborah is a great supporter of charity and volunteerism and donates 10% of all profits of her novels to charity.


In 2009 Deborah wrote The Pain Diaries, a play based on her experience at the Chronic Pain Centre. She spent three years researching the topic, interviewing patients and experts in the field. The play won the CPS Pain Awareness Award in May 2009 and was then workshopped in December 2009. Two sold-out public readings happened in February 2010, followed by a one week run at the Grand Theatre in Calgary in May 2010. A movie adaptation of The Pain Diaries is currently in production.
