Meet the Author

At the age of nine, Debra began writing stories for the characters who lived in her too-vivid imagination. By 18 she had turned wife, mother, and career woman, leaving her writing behind. But those imaginary characters just wouldn't go away.

For the next 18 years she did everything from managing a Captain D's seafood restaurant to holding an executive secretarial position at NASA, while the characters and their stories continued to traipse around inside her head. Eventually they just had to come out and Debra began the journey that would take her to where her heart had been all along - writing romance.

Debra was born in Alabama, but now lives in Tennessee. Her journey, however, wasn't a simple trek northward to the Volunteer state. First, Debra, her husband, and oldest daughter did a little traipsing of their own. From Texas to Berlin, Germany, Debra followed her husband's military assignments. Finally landing in Tennessee, they had their second daughter and settled for the rest of their lives in a small community they fell in love with on sight.

Write Debra with your comments at P.O. Box 64, Huntland, Tennessee, 37345.

    solid romantic suspense

    The Colby Agency assigns Doug Cooper with an impossible job. He must protect tomboy Edwinna Harper of Meadowbrook, Maryland, who has recently been identified as a D'Martine heiress. That assignment seems relatively simple for the professional bodyguard until he meets the bodacious Eddi. However, his boss Victoria Colby also expects Doug to turn this small town sow into a first class lady, but she remains in shock to learn that the man who raised her is not her biological father, who died before she was born. <P>Doug rejects Eddi¿s assault on his heart keeping a professional demeanor though at night he wonders why he keeps dreaming of her. However, when someone decides to remove the heiress, Doug risks his life to insure history fails to repeat itself as he keeps his beloved safe. By doing so he enables her to crumble the barriers that kept his heart out of reach. <P>GUARDING THE HEIRESS is a solid romantic suspense that hooks the audience due to the antics of the lead couple, especially the hero. Doug tries everything to not fall in love, because it is unprofessional for his assignment, but Eddi overwhelms him even while she struggles with her own demons. Though lost little heiress found tales are frequent themes, Debra Webb insures her novel¿s freshness with a strong cast who makes for a fine tale. <P>Harriet Klausner
